Robotic Necromancy Warefare
We had no jobs. Artificial Intelligence had rendered human beings obsolete. A revolutionary, open-source A.I. nicknamed S.H.R.E.D. came for every industry in a massive wave; almost overnight 95% of our jobs were gone.

But in the end, it didn't really matter. Cheap A.I. workers made for ridiculously cheap food, fuel, and consumer goods. A family of four could live for years on pocket change. Everything was running S.H.R.E.D., and everything ran cheaply and perfectly. Standard of living soared, poverty was eradicated, and no one had to work jobs they hated ever again.

...that's not to say we were idle. Teams of trouble-seeking hackers worked tirelessly to break open the honeypot, to crack the code behind S.H.R.E.D. There were rumors of progress, of tiny security weaknesses being exploited....and then someone hacked the military.

The mysterious Hacktivist posted the security hole online, and almost immediately other hackers and technologists started gobbling up their share of the A.I. controlled world. Soldiers, tanks, miners, cab drivers and baristas all turned against their owners and followed the new leaders of our broken world.

You've written a patch that addresses the security hole.
You can turn the robots against the power-hungry villains who have been using them.

Command your undead robotic army. Assimilate. Save the world.

Controls
Left click: direct your army to move or attack wherever you click. Click to move your army in a straight line, or hold down to have the army follow your cursor.
Right click: Once you've defeated a squad of robots, you may right click to raise them to fight in your army. This also automatically heals any of your robots that are damaged, so time it well!

The progression system is unfinished and partially functional now. Don't sell your robots.




Future Plans

Thanks
* to Juicy Beast, who made the Game Jam game "Right Click to Necromance", a primary inspiration for this game!
