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 damnedest 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.

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


"PRONOUNCED (DOOM-BOT)"

An action 2.5/3D side-scroller with modern visuals and a wicked story! Classically inspired.

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.

CURRENTLY IN PRODUCTION!

Size of team : 5
Engine: Unreal Engine
Platform : PC (and Consoles if all goes well!)

We are just a handful of artists doing what we love to do. Updates for Düm Bot will be coming fast and furious and we’ll be looking to you to give us any and all insight or suggestions!

Let’s create something amazing together.

It sounds great, it looks great... I especially like the funny setup of the game: robot + zombie + revenge + saving the world. I really don´t like these things alone, but all together, they sound like fun game. I am looking forward to see more about this game. Have a good luck!
