What is the story of Abatron? Eons ago, two technologically advanced races disputed territorial rights over a neighboring solar system. The dispute turned to widespread war and destruction, killing innocent lifeforms inhabiting nearby worlds.
In the aftermath, the remaining advanced races came together in an attempt to prevent this tragedy from ever happening again by forming the Council of Abatron.
Abatron resolves disputes with controlled combat at the galactic level. Each faction brings forth its best warriors and technologies to battle it out, gladiator style, atop celestial remnants of the tragic past. Pick from several races to play.
Get your freak on by launching rockets from your belly, playing as the Haagenti. Spawned from the most distant corners of the galaxy and demon-like in appearance, they believed that guns were better than hands. Thus, using cyborg technologies, they transformed their bodies into weapons of mass destruction.
Long Range Siege. Plant this behemoth to grab the ground as he launches rockets at distant enemy forces. Not effective for short range attacks.
Toxic Spray. When not in siege mode, the Rocketbelly emits an acidic jet stream from its slimy tongue. If you see tongue, run!
Rocket Guidance. Hold on to your shots, cause shit just got intense. Fly through the battlefield controlling a high speed death present courtesy of you.
Last week, we had a special blog entry written by our composer and sound designer @neoninsect. He's been creating some awesome music and sounds for us and recently released the Abatron menu theme!
"I remember the first day when I opened the engine, it felt so different. No faders, no knobs, just blueprints. A different way of handling volumes, new terms. I had to learn a different way of thinking. Had to go out of my comfort zone and spend hours and days learning. And I am still learning. But you know what? I love it. Now I have no fears doing what has to be done."

In Abatron, you have your enemies and your allies. However there are also neutral creatures that roam about the map, protecting their turf, and wondering what the hell you're doing on their planet. These critters can effect the game in a couple different ways. First, they are protecting resource points. And if you can get past them, you will be rewarded a nice bonus to your resource pool. (Of course, you'll also have to fend off your enemies from trying to reach it as well.)
These creatures don't wait in their homes though, they will be out and about, attacking anyone who gets too close. This adds another level of danger that will be hard to avoid.
Things are not all bad however. You can use the critters in your favor. For example: you see your enemies troops are on the move, and their headed your way. BUT, they're also running by a neutral creature spawn point. You could send a unit out real quick, attack the colony, and now your enemy has a horde of angry critters to deal with before they can reach you. Handy no?
Here's a before and after of stinger! Our first neutral creature in Abatron:
