in the far future mankind succeed in building the first artificial creatures from biological and electronical components. Unsurprisingly, one of the first applications is the usage as highly intelligent battle drone. These drones are called Bionics and do constantly improve their artificial brain, learn rapidly from all perceptions and grow a self-awareness.
One day, they decide to turn against their creators...
About the game:
Diabolus Ex Machina was inspired by the classic C64 game Paradroid with new game play elements like the camouflage function and the upcoming multiplayer mode. It does not mean to be a clone or remake.
However, the main goal is to eliminate all hostile Bionics either by killing or by taking them over. There are multiple Bionics classes which differ in power, indicated by different colors.
- Windows 7 / Vista, Linux
- 2+ core CPU
- 512 MB RAM
- 150 MB hard disk space
- Graphics card capable of OpenGL 2.0
I thankfully take any kind of feedback, but am especially interested in comments about gameplay, balance, difficulty and understandability.
