Bot Colony is the first game to make intelligent English dialogue with the characters an integral part of gameplay. The major innovation of the game is the ability to ask a character a relevant question in your own words, or give a relevant command, and get a cogent response or have your command executed. You play as a robot cognition specialist called in by Nakagawa Corp. to investigate the disappearance of advanced robotic sensors enabling robots to feel smell, taste, and touch. Nakagawa’s arch-competitor, the Korean KHT, managed to infiltrate Nakawaga’s sanctuary in the remote Pacific island of Agrihan, in the Marianas. You must track down their spy before it is too late. That won’t be easy: Nakagawa is a test bed for intelligent robots to be deployed as advanced colonists on missions to Mars. It is inhabited mostly by robots - and you will have to interact with them to track down the spy.

Bot Colony can now be found here: Store.steampowered.com

You can check out the trailer and new investigation game play dev diary in the videos section.

Season One: Landfall is the initial Bot Colony core game featuring the Intruder and Arrival playable episodes, in addition to the pre-order and first access to Riot, this season’s third episode.

  • Intruder - The Nakagawa Robot Corp. requires your skills to investigate a potential case of espionage, but first the high-tech giant will test your sense of observation and situational awareness in the simulation of a crime scene. After you learn to interact effectively with robots using language and pass the multiple challenges of Intruder, Nakagawa will entrust you with the mission to track down the spy.
  • Arrival - As you land on the beautiful south Pacific island, you learn that something is amiss in Bot Colony. You'll need to use your skills to communicate with robots and get their help to overcome a life-threatening situation to proceed with your mission. Be prepared to hit the ground running and keep your eyes and ears open as you enter Nakagawa's world of corporate espionage and industrial terrorism.
  • Riot (available soon) - After swooping down on mutinous robots aboard a futuristic Hunter Bot aircraft, you land on an abandoned oil platform. There, you'll encounter robots operating under a new agenda, looking to purge any who question the mutiny. If you're caught, you'll have to prove that you're human in order to survive – by passing the Humanity Test. If you're incarcerated and turned into a human guinea pig, you'll have to find a way to escape.

We use the Havok Vision engine to run the game client side, which connects to our Natural Language Understanding server.

We should be putting up a game play trailer in August. We have some old tech demos on Youtube, but they were shot using our in house engine so they aren't as visually impressive.
