What is DümBot?We get asked this a lot, and the answer is pretty simple. DümBot is an independently made video game about a dim-witted, mute, robot originally created for nefarious purposes and his partner, a paraplegic, redneck, talking zombie exacting revenge on their evil creator while trying to save the world from an apocalypse brought about through the use of zombies, robots, and robot-zombies. Simple.
DümBot's story is presented as a 3D (Sometimes 2.5D) action platformer, taking advantage of today's amazing gaming technologies, namely the Unreal Engine. We at Angry Rock Studios are trying our damndest to make sure that DümBot hits on all levels, fun, innovative, interesting, and still retain the feeling of the classic platformers that inspire it, and us, greatly. We set out to make a game that we would want to play ourselves, and as a strongly diverse group of gamers, we feel like that's a solid goal.
The game has players taking DümBot and Jenkins through an alternate, war torn, near-future version of our world. Through ridiculous circumstances, The Mad Scientist's (or "The Doc") siege on the planet has begun, and the only ones who really have a chance to stop him are two of his very own "failed" experiments. With in-depth knowledge of The Doc's plans and bases of operation, DB and Jenkins make surgical strikes on said bases, but he hasn't made it easy on them. The player will have to navigate a ruined, zombie, robot, robot-zombie, infested section of popular cities and locales in order to enter the hidden base, then navigate through a technological dungeon with all of its own hidden traps and hazards. The Doc has also left his most successful experiments at the heart of each base, so DB and Jenkins will certainly have their work cut out for them even after trekking through hoards of zombies, robots, and robot-zombies (it really brings a smile to our faces whenever we say that part).
At its core, DümBot is truly a homage to the games we grew up with, and a natural next step in game design and depth for our small studio of dedicated gamers and artists.
