You could totally be forgiven if you’ve never heard of Demiurge Studios. They’ve been around for a while, but up till now, they’ve always worked in partnerships with more established developers, like Bioware, Harmonix, or Gearbox. But with the release of Shoot Many Robots, they’re finally going solo and coming out strong with a brand new IP.
Shoot Many Robots, as you’ll see when you hit the jump to watch the trailer, is a sidescrolling action game, with an almost Contra-esque feel to it, that focuses on (you guessed it) blowing the hell out of robots. The style is looking great, and it already seems like a bucket of fun, especially in co-op.
Shoot Many Robots is planned for release this year on the ambiguously stated “digital download”. As soon as they tell us exactly what that means, we’ll be sure to let you know.
