Roboquest is a Borderlands-esque Roguelike

Published: August 26, 2020 1:07 PM /



Published and developed by RyseUp Studios, Roboquest is a FPS Roguelike with an art style that bears a striking similarity to the Borderlands series and is available on Steam's Early Access.

Roboquest is playable in solo or 2-player co-op where players take control of a hyper-mobile robot and fight robots and enemies that want you reduced into scrap metal. The game itself features randomly generated environments, so players will be able to keep running (or perhaps wheeling) through the game's levels over and over again. While doing so they'll also want to gather technology to make themselves stronger, such as upgrades, customization, and abilities for the character and the basecamp that they have available. These will stick with the player after they are defeated, so be sure to collect everything that is even remotely shiny.

The game has secrets for players to find as well, and players will be able to gain rewards to piece together a story involving a young Scavenger girl named Max, who teams up with an old Guardian robot in order to discover what's going on and why there's a ton of robots who want them dead.

If you're the type of player that demands Gamepad support for their gaming pleasure, fear not, as it is supported in this game. It's too bad that there isn't any local-coop play, though.

Roboquest is available on Steam's Early Access for $17.99. If you're interested in checking it out, click here. There's also a Discord if that's what you're into.
