JunkerBot is a solo-developed Single-player Car Combat game, where you destroy, recycle, and replicate vehicles, use resources to upgrade your base and DECONTAMINATE!.
In a very distant future,
The last human starship, after surviving a mysterious catastrophe, is now looking for the next earth-like planet to colonize.
They found "G-581g", a known earth-like exoplanet, has now developed vegetation and a breathable atmosphere.
So, to begin the construction of the future colonies, many "Replicator" bots are sent.
You are one of the robots.
Your mission is to gather resources and build everything needed for humans to descend from the starship and successfully colonize the planet.
after a rough landing on G-581g something goes wrong with the battery and you are forced to shut down and replicate an emergency solar panel to recharge.
Next thing you know, you boot up in the middle of an electric storm, battery is full, but something is off,
there's no connection to the starship.
also, why is there an old rusty armored vehicle next to you?
The player will have to keep his base alive and build the best vehicle possible to destroy every hostile life-form on the planet.
There's 2 factions in the area where the game will take place.
- The "AirBurn"
All their vehicle designs are based on old aerial vehicles, but with wheels, and 2 sets of guns.
They mostly use fast-firing Auto-cannons
Their smaller vehicles tend to drift easily to keep themselves from being an easy target
The bigger ones use more explosive methods of survival
- The "WarMetal"
All their designs are based on robust architecture and use a tank-like configuration of wheels.
They like to use slower big-caliber cannons, and have access to laser technology.
Hi there! it’s been a while, as usual, so let’s get to it.
V0.5 is now available and it contains cool new features and some nice improvements on many aspects, like progression and combat, and the game has an ending now!
Get it on itch.io:
And it’s now available on steam too!.
now, a few screenshots to demonstrate new features and vehicles:
this is one of the new unique vehicles, the Tesla Viking, with it's unique weapon.
v0.5 allows factions to kill each-other better, encounters are no longer limited to 6 vehicles in total.
while exploring, the game shows you how contaminated the current area is, and it's sources.
Also, I have changed the way the demo works, instead of being a piece of the main (unfinished) game, with some story or other elements, I want it to demonstrate how the “meat” of the game feels (the vehicle combat), it will randomly pick a vehicle for you and spawn some enemies of either faction, or both, so there's a 3 way battle, and it may give you some deployable things to help. (like this turret)
You can check the game’s current state and a full Change-log HERE.
A list of what’s present in the current version, and what is missing.
Here it is!, the game’s first Alpha Demo! For all of you to try, enjoy, give feedback and/or get a feel for what’s to come.
