I like the idea, seems to be well thought out as well – will keep an eye on it.

The idea sounds awesome, and I like the look of it, but I would really like to see it in action.

Really good! Hoping to see more of it.

Bicentennial Man + I-Robot? I like it great concept and graphics! Very innovative! I don’t know if I can play, because of my bad pronounciation/accent but I’m really interested. I was surprised to see a very good game with a lot of potential today (lots of awful games downvoted). You made my day! UPVOTED!!!!! Hope you get the green light soon! Keep up the amazing work.

Looks very interesting. A peculiar setting, nice storytelling, consistent aesthetics. It seems to be shaping along very well on both design and execution, which is a rarity.

Very neat concept. I think this could be a very good game. Got my thumbs up. I’d like to play this one.

The older tech demo is thought provoking. I can tell it was on the old engine and the animations are placeholder, and everything’s very raw. But if you really pay attention to how Jimmy is answering questions in sequence, staying on topic, digging for clarity, retaining the information… you can totally see where this technology is going. The really fresh part is the idea of teaching the AI (all the ones you meet in the episodes) different things. It means that every player is going to have an island populated by different robots; the stuff the player teaches to them. Of course they’ll have their own intelligence and details relevant to what their purpose is in the game, but if players could fill them up with loads of extra details to respond to… from the ridiculous, to the most intricate facts and concepts… intriguing mate. I hope it saves ALL THAT STUFF and you can go back to other levels to mess around with the different AI you encountered and spoke with.

This is a very innovative approach. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

Agreed that some slightly prettier graphics would be nice, but I think the core communication with robots idea here is genius. Really looking forward to playing with this.

The idea of actually speaking to a game as part of player interaction is one that is long overdue for widespread use in the industry. I applaud you for taking the plunge and making it part of your game – I can’t wait to play it!

Quote “We went in all the way, because we believed that putting you in the game world, able to communicate with the characters using your own words , is very immersive and can change gaming.” Yes! You speak into a MIC and the characters do what you say. Up vote.

I absolutely love the story, Im am very excited for this game!

Looks very interesting, great art style…

Some ground breaking work. I will support developers willing to take the genre in a new direction rather than simply copying models that already exist.
Mister Chippy 26 Jul 2013 @ 12:54pm
This NEEDS to get on. It looks quite unique and amazing.
arteris 26 Jul 2013 @ 4:59pm
This is one of the most fascinating and unique projects I have seen in awhile. I would love to see a game like this on Steam.

The text associated with this game is really ambitious, really pulling from the brilliance of I, Robot; that you must learn to ask the right questions in order to proceed with the story. From taking a tale and turning it into a really engaging game, that’s a brilliant thing to pull from, and for that reason I’m interested.
