We have thought about how to release “Nikki and the Robots” for a long time, and this is what we finally came up with… First, there is a fully playable version of “Nikki and the Robots” featuring various levels, a level editor, and online functions. This will be released as free software (under LGPL and Creative Commons), and you can download an alpha version of that right now. Later this year, we will also release our story mode, which will tell the adventure around Nikki, Dr. Lacroix and the robots.
It has a fun twist on traditional platforming: Nikki must utilize robots distributed throughout the level via access terminals to succeed:
- New Patrol Robots, which will make Nikki fail the level when touched
- Jetpack Robots are more forgiving and easier to control
- No more editor crashes when Nikki has not been added
- Signature checks for updates (heightened updater security – not gameplay-relevant
There’s also an editor tutorial!
