Drunken Robot Pornography is Press Released
Dejobaan recently announced Drunken Robot Pornography, and we were met with some fanfare. Over the past couple of days, Shack News, Blues News, and Indie Games Magazine picked up our story. We also received some love on Reddit, in both gamernews and IndieGaming, thanks to user DemanRisu.
We didn’t opt for full press-release distribution. Instead, we hit up most of the indie-friendly sites.

About a quarter posted our news, which is good, but we need to up our game!
Here’s the press release:
Dejobaan Games has announced development on Drunken Robot Pornography, a first-person shooter about demolishing titanic, flying robots, piece-by-piece. The award-winning studio has screenshots of the initial prototype at www.dejobaan.com/drunken.
In Drunken Robot Pornography (DRP): You’re a small, fleshy human with a jetpack and a gun, and your opponent is a robot centerfold that dwarfs a city block. The robot — called a Titan — tries to cut you apart with lasers and missiles powerful enough power to crumble the buildings you’re standing on. Pick off the Titan’s cannons, fry away its carbon fiber armor, target a joint, and tear off a claw, leaving it writhing. Your furious opponent spews raw plasma at you, so you shoot up a force field and duck behind it. Who will win? The crowd cheers your intimate-yet-deadly dance.
And if fighting giant robots isn’t enough, you can fashion your own multistory Titans to unleash on other players. Start with a skeleton of titanium girders, then mount pulse cannons and shielding over hard points. Add actuators so your Titan can flex its arms or tentacles, and jets for locomotion. Pick your materials carefully — an aluminum finish may be pretty, but graphene armor will better withstand attack. Finally, fuel it up with isopropanol for speed, methanol for strength, or ethanol, if you just want your Titan to end up really, really angry.
Having introduced a playable prototype to PAX East ’12 convention-goers to good effect, Dejobaan Games projects a 2012 PC/Mac launch.
