This is not a game at all. At best it is a prototype. It is FAR from even being close to being ready. This should be free or not listed at all. it looks nice graphically and it is easy to see it holds alot of promise. But this needs ALOT of work. At the moment it is a waste of money to pay for something with so little substance. Even if the dev means well. Work on it and make a kickstarter or something. Then give this as a bonus perk to doners.

I am going to state publicly to rozgo as far as I am concerned you are a good group of guys who look out for you audience that is a good thing to do now a days and I figured people would love to help you guys with your game that's what I feel funding does, thank you for your fast response to the email I sent to you, to all others who look at buying the game I will still stand by it I asked for a refund also and got a VIP access instead which is fine by me I didn't except that, for those of you who see this game, buy it, play it, support these guys with the money they are exceptional group who didn't know that so many people would be interested in the testing progress. As far as I am concerned this game is a rating of 10, keep up the outstanding work Rozgo and I look forward to helping in any way I can.

I post a comment from a rawbots community member (Trook) that is new to desura and doesnt have permission to post yet, so he asked me to do that:

"Forbidlich said it well. We surprised the devs with the amount of new members/refunders.
At the rawbots hompage, you can order the game for 30€, which means to refund the game and have access on all further releases therefor.

I know, it's a real price for a pre-alpha, but...
I am playing it permanently the last 2 weeks and longer. Yes, the game is in a very early state, but you can already puzzle like crazy and it's pure fun and creativity! It's amazing how effictive you can breath live into your creations!
Just check the showroom Rawbots.net
and have a look at what has been created so far.

There is a damn great communication between us and the devs. They 're telling us, what they are actually working on and listen to our suggestions.
A completly reworked physic is incoming up now, to let us realize much more complex bots... omg, can't wait for it :D
Also a first multiplayer mode will be up soon, where your creations can dance with each other... jk, its a battlemode ofc!
Atm a new lab is available for the refunder version (VIP-PassCode). This is your little playground. A world with some planets where you can sattle, terraform (edit the geometry) and puzzle your bots...
...Definatly one of the best sandbox games already. At least to me =)

Hope we will meet there :) - Trook"

It will be defenitely a fun game in future, but the latest alpha isn't such a fun. Every action you have to type into the console. There is no menue yet. You can see this, when you watch the video. So you first have to learn the commands, to be able to do things like building robots or even registering your key ingame.

It's a Pre-Alpha.

Yes true. The console is more powerful than the grid. The next build will have the grid be equally as powerful. The final goal is that you can program your bots, fully through console, and fully through grid hex tiles. And even switch mid commands.

The console though, lets us get you features more faster. So from time to time, the console might get a feature before the grid.

My problem wit the console programming is, that I don't know where to find the tilt key for opening the console on a european keyboard. I read that its a key combination. I tried different solutions. It worked once but I don't know how I did it. It would be nice if you sign the console opening key to a key on the keyboard which is equal on all keyboard layouts.

It is pronounced "tilde" and it is the '~" key. It is a standard key used for opening consoles in many classic FPS's.

Usually this key is present directly before the '1' key on most keyboards and directly under the 'esc' key.

Nope, my layout is like this:

Elektro-export.de

The ~ key is reached on my keyboard with Alt Gr and +. But somehow it doesn't work. I also tried the key under Esc. It's ^ . No reaction.

That's not a complaint against the developer. It's just an info for potential customers, that they know what the buy at the moment.

Thanks, the console is our cheaper-and-faster-way-to-get-to-market system. And as an added benefit, makes you look badass programming your bots.

Incredible robot sim. The game is already amazing in this under-developed state, and it will only get better. What really boggles my mind is the versatility of the parts. You want to build a lunar lander that can travel through space from planet to planet? I did that yesterday. Want to make a dragonfly that actually flies? Go ahead and beat me to it. If you like robotics, design, maybe a little architecture, or just like awesome robots fighting, building, exploring, mining, even terraforming, the…
