Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Mechanibot » The Laser Update – Version 1.014

Hey Mechanibots, today’s update includes a highly requested feature: attack markers for lasers!

Better lasers for better lasering!

The laser attacks of the ice crystal enemies and the miniboss in Planet 2 are no longer unavoidable. They now display attack markers, giving you a chance to reposition your bots and Not Get Lasered. This brings these attacks in line with the behavior of other attacks in the game, creating a more consistent and reliable experience.

The full patch notes and details on other changes are down below. Thank you to everyone who provided the feedback for this update. As the only dev working on this project, your help is very appreciated!

And for the next update…

In other news, I am hard at work on Mechanibot’s first big update! As mentioned before, the main feature will be endless mode. Unlocked after beating the game, you’ll be able to build larger and stronger teams than you’d be able to otherwise. In addition, gameplay will be much faster, with no pause between rounds. It gets pretty hectic!

Introducing the mechanic robot class

We’ll also be getting five new robots and an entirely new class! The mechanic robots will assist the Mechanibot with keeping the team nice and healthy. Some provide straight healing, while others are more about damage mitigation. I’m excited to see the builds people come up with these new bots.

All right, until next time, I gotta get back to work! Please share the game if you like it, and please consider writing a review! It helps me a lot. The Steam algorithm loves reviews.
