Deepak Fights Robots is Epilepsy, If Epilepsy Were AWESOME

I doubt anyone has heard of Deepak Fights Robots until this weekend; the game came out way back in May to fanfare so minimal even I didn’t realize it existed. After winning Best Gameplay Design at the IndieCade Festival over the weekend though, I’m sure everyone will most certainly know of its absolutely bat-poop crazy existence.

Created by Tom Sennett, Deepak Fights Robots is a game you’ve probably already played before, but it differentiates itself with an aesthetic and gameplay elements that come straight from your wild, ecstasy-fueled dreams. From what I gathered in my time with it, you play as Deepak, and you have to fight robots. Simple, except the graphics are out of this world, and the power-ups you can garner aren’t exactly orthodox.

I don’t want to spoil the game at all; it’s one of those worlds you really need to enter blind. Purchase it here for the ridiculous price of $4.95, and be prepared for some insanity.
