Algo-bot receives another Kickstarter campaign
Some may recall that developer Fishing Cactus had previously attempted a Kickstarter for a 3D logic puzzle title, Algo-Bot. This Kickstarter failed, with the developers learning several lessons that they hope to leverage into a successful second attempt.
The game, which was successfully Greenlit on Steam, places you in control of a cheerful robot with a serious job, Algo. His job is to clear out the crates of toxic-waste from the factory floor. In order to do this, you need to create command combos, chaining instructions together so that he can get to the waste and remove it.
The game sounds simple, however if you want a high score you need to limit your number of commands. In addition, as you progress you will be able to access more challenging levels, more commands, and additional functions to direct not only Algo, but additional robot helpers.
The developers are asking for $40,000, and have stated that for every single donation to the campaign, they will give a copy of Algo-Bot to a school for use in their technology curriculum. If funding is successful, the game is scheduled for a December 2014 release on Windows, with additional stretch goals including Mac and Linux versions.
