Description

Clone Drone in the Danger Zone is a third person sword fighter where any part of your body can be sliced off. With your mind downloaded into a robot gladiator, you must survive the sinister trials of the arena.

History

The game is the first release from Doborog Games. It was created by solo Indie Developer Erik Rydeman, a veteran of Playfish, Popcap and EA Mobile. The team has since grown to 3 people working full time on the game. The Open Alpha first launched on Itch.io, followed by a Steam release six months later. It has seen regular updates, to the delight of fans and YouTubers.

Features

  • Epic Voxel Dismemberment: In addition to looking cool, the ability to cut off body parts is central to the gameplay. Jumping on one leg is a common occurrence. Large enemies need to be cut down to size before a fatal blow can be delivered.
  • Sharp Sword Combat: Combat is fast and intense, putting great emphasis on movement, timing and positioning. You are never safe, as any blow can instantly kill or dismember.
  • Entertaining Commentary: With over 10000 spoken words, Commentatron and Analysis-Bot provide a running commentary of your performance and react to your activities.
