Nimbatus is a really fun game that mixes in building drones (autonomous or otherwise) and now you can try it free, using the Nimbatus - Drone Creator that just released.
With the full game of Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor releasing on May 14, this is a good move. It's long been since demos were commonplace, so this gives you at least a good idea of what to expect from it. Expect a lot too, it's crazy. I've seen some truly exceptional creations with it. From massive ships that build smaller ships, to almighty long worms that shoot lasers from all sides. The possibilities are huge.
- Over 75 physically simulated parts to construct your drones
- Procedural weapon system and tech tree
- Autonomous drone programming using logic and sensor parts
- 8 Tutorials to learn the basics of drone engineering
Once you've built them and played around a bit, if you decide you like the game and pick up the full version you're able to import them into it.
Try out the Nimbatus - Drone Creator on Steam now. As for the full game that's in Early Access and launching on May 14 that's up on Humble Store and Steam. If you try it out and build something cool, they're also running a competition. Find more details on that here.
