Ubisoft and Demiurge Studios Shoot Many Robots Together

Demiurge Studios re-announces its upcoming “four-player co-op run-n-gun side-scrolling RPG shooter,” Shoot Many Robots, now with Ubisoft riding shotgun as the game’s official publisher.

“Ubisoft is excited to be working with Demiurge Studios on the release of Shoot Many Robots,” said Adam Novickas, director of marketing at Ubisoft. “Ubisoft is focused on providing players with a strong and diverse portfolio of digital titles, and Demiurge is set to bring another amazing game to the digital space with Shoot Many Robots.”

P. Walter Tugnut, first name “Pickles” (but don’t you dare call him that!), is the drunken (and apparently constipated) star of Shoot Many Robots, a side-scrolling shooter that, get this, involves shooting a fuckton of robots.

Stocked up on beer and an arsenal of customizable weapons, players will blast their way through killer robots run amok from a killer robot factory, by themselves or with up to three anti-robot friends. Demiurge has confirmed two main play modes for Shoot Many Robots. In Traversal mode, players will progress through robot-filled levels in a linear fashion, whereas in Survival mode players will fight to survive for as long as possible against wave after wave of robot attackers. Sounds straightforward enough.

Shoot Many Robots brings extreme robot carnage to PC, PSN and XBLA in 2012. But if you’re heading out to PAX Prime in Seattle this coming weekend (August 26–28), drop on by the Ubisoft booth for an early chance to shoot many robots in person.
