McDroid Lands on PS4 in Early 2016

Jakub Mikyska's Avatar Posted by CEO, Grip Games

Hi, this is Jakub from Grip Games and I’m back on PlayStation.Blog to show you our newest upcoming game — McDroid, which is coming to PS4 in early 2016 and combines action and tower defense genres. It’s developed by the super-creative team at Elefantopia.

McDroid

You’ll play as a cute little robot named — you guessed it — McDroid. He crash landed on an alien planet and has to defend against countless waves of enemies in order to slowly repair his ship and also heal the planet.

McDroid has two major distinctive features: one is its unique look, which is very colorful and stylized, and the other is mixing tower defense with action gameplay. Starting with the latter, you will be able to build various weapons, like lasers, rocket launchers or tesla cannons, and place them as stationary turrets or carry them on your back and use them as traditional weapons. This lets you have automatic weapons to protect one part of the level, while you take more personal approach to bug eradication elsewhere. You’ll need to plant and harvest resources (And protect them!), you’ll find blueprints and discover new weapons and you’ll also get side-kicks as you play to help you cover more places at once.

Visuals and the overall style of the game are also very important. The cute scenery can very quickly turn into a frantic blood-bath. While McDroid is approachable by all types of players, you can also expect a real challenge in the late levels as the hostile bugs will throw everything they have at you. But the game always keeps a quirky sense of humor and playfulness.

We’ll be launching McDroid in early 2016 so the release date is actually just around the corner. I will be around the comments section, so feel free to post any questions you have!
