In a world filled with bureaucracy
There was the Factory
It produced pairs of robots of doubtful quality
These are their tales
Silicomrades is a 2D top-down couch co-op shooter for 2 players with ever-action-changing gameplay about malfunctioning robots fighting against unstoppable bureaucracy. Build your own robots from parts providing different bonuses as well as potential defects and start the Resistance against the kafkaesque government. Fight the evil robo-politicians and fall apart but do not fall back!
TWO ROBOT BUDDIES
They are asymmetric in terms of playstyle and components to choose from. This guarantees that your friend's robot will always be unfairly better than yours.
BUILD THEM UP...
Assemble your very own robots from various components with different bonuses. Get additional moving directions, bigger magazine or active reload ability.
...AND WATCH THEM FALL APART
Each of the components also come with a malfunction that will happen once your robot is damaged enough (or as you discover bugs we didn't find). Say hi to friendly fire, nonstop movement or reloading a random number of bullets into a magazine.
SHARE A PART OF YOURSELF
You can freely swap parts inside your systems to change your configuration, give them to your robot bro to repair him or use them to interact with the world around you.
STOP THE ROBO-BUREAUCRATS...
We have chosen the most boring theme on the planet Earth, added robots, turned it upside down and took it to absurd extreme, thus forming the brand new genre of comedic totality. Your enemies are vicious, tireless and armed with suitcases. They stop at nothing to reach their sinister goal. Except for the lunch break, there is no way they are going to miss that.
...DURING A SERIES OF ENTANGLED EPISODIC STORIES
Experience a full story arc split into small episodic stories in which you take on the role of various robot duos coming from the same assembly line at the Factory. Each one of these little stories offers you a different unique twist on the core game mechanics and a change in narrative structure.
STUNNING HAND-DRAWN VISUALS
With one protagonist animated in 96 directions. Our artist is a genius with a little sprinkle of insanity.
