Hi folks!

A friend and I have recently unleashed our first ever video game on the unsuspecting citicens of the world. Hooray!


What's the game about?

RoboTraps is a Virtual Reality puzzler in which you're working as a small employee in a factory producing deadly traps. Your job is to make sure the robots working there don't accidentally destroy themselves, and if you do your job well, you'll be rewarded! With coffee mugs for your desk, encouraging(?) words, and promotions that don't do anything. Just like in real life.

Check out the trailer to see some gameplay (and witness the highly sensual voice acting by yours truly):


Features of the game include
  • silly robots
  • excentric humor (surprise)
  • 12 colorful levels made with Asper's arguably amazing (AAA) level design skills
  • rather mild movements to keep you from going dizzy
  • rewards and a tutorial
  • text & voice acting in both English and German


So how do I get this game of yours?

Being a VR game, RoboTraps is currently available for both your Android smartphone or the Oculus Rift.

In case you're not so sure whether your smartphone can keep up with the game, we're going to release a free demo of RoboTraps very soon (hopefully tomorrow). The free demo only has a fraction of the levels the full game has, but it's perfect to try out whether you're suited to work at an established company like Death Trap IncTM. Versions for the Vive, Daydream, IOS and others are currently being prepared.

Check our website, robotraps.com, or visit us at facebook to always stay updated on this. Or just, you know, post in and/or follow this thread.


But Asper, VR is sooo expensive! How could I ever afford it?

I hear you, high-end VR devices (like the Oculus Rift) aren't really something you just throw in your basket when shopping groceries. However, if you already own a smartphone, you could just get a cardboard and the Android version of the game. Cardboards are far more affordable, with decent ones being available already at around 5 bucks. So forget about roses and chocolate for Valentine's, there's nothing more romantic than working in a virtual monorail-cubicle and saving robots from buzz saws or flamethrowers.

Happy Valentine's, fds!
Some say this day is about money... But that's nonsense! In reality, it's about giving away free stuff to get yourself an advantage in the long run love! And because of this, I'd like to let you all know that RoboTraps now has a free demo version! It features the first 3 levels of the game and gives you a good impression about how the full version looks and feels. Get it here.



XOXO

If you have a fan card you want to be created, just post about it here! I'd love to take a look at it.

Aw  :)
That's very nice of you.

We now got a version for the HTC Vive, btw. Next in line: Steam VR Store and better Oculus Touch support.

This looks really cool! Unfortunately, I don't even have a phone, so VR is not going to be my thing for a while.

Here's the trailer for the Vive version of RoboTraps:



It's at the moment available over Viveport only, although as I type some company is checking my passport so I can push it to Steam VR.

If you happen to have a Viveport subscription, you can actually get RoboTraps for even less than its individual cost. Which, now that I think of it, means that I earn even less money from this... Ah well, it's the thought that matters, right? I'm really cutting me own throat with these prices!*

*This is a reference. No, not this! The text above with the asterisk behind it. THIS is a footnote. Duh!
