just bought the game on desura, works great through wine and been enjoying it so far! like the console interface, still figuring out all you can do, but liking it alot. is there a way I could upgrade this license to the early access $30 on the site? also, if I use that one, would I be able to get the game on Desura once it's complete as well?

used to watch that battlebots show a while ago, so this is a nice treat :) plus a programmer, so the level of detail here is impressive

Taking to the Dev, they didn't expect so much interest in the 30$ version, they are trying to figure out the best options and probably we will see the chance to upgrade the account.
They are also at work to create an easy to use interface for the visual programming part and a lot of other things, this is just a pre-alpha so... This game is going to be a masterpiece.

All the parts listed here: and something more.
You have to spawn them with the "spawn" command, the GUI for the visual programming system is a work in progress.

Its 4 tires, 4 Engins, 3 blocks and 1 camera.. enyoy.

errr, how is that possible, the description says about 30 parts:
"This build is a playground where you can start building bots immediately, by taking advantage of more than 30 programmable operants and bot parts with a powerful visual programming system."

Any plans of adding a demo along the line? I'd love to get a feel for the game from more than screenshots and videos. :)

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…

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.
