  • Spotlights, lasers, bombs, and other traps to sidestep
  • Tons of crafty gadgets to master
  • Short/medium/long game modes for play sessions of any size
  • Mysterious and fully-voiced storyline to gradually explain the game’s strange setting
  • Secrets to find, hidden content to unlock
  • Controller support
  • The year’s most exciting furniture-eating stealth game!
How this game got to Steam:

Not The Robots is developed by Eli Piilonen and David Carney, and published by tinyBuild. It is the result of a game incubation program at HouseOGames ran by tinyBuild managing partner Luke Burtis. We are incubating promising game projects and helping them become commercially successful!

About the developers:

David and Eli worked together for four years without ever meeting in person or even hearing each other’s voices – neither seems to fully understand why they didn’t just call or video conference each other. During this period, they released  seven Flash titles, including the Mochi Award-winning The Company of Myself. Not the Robots is both their first commercial release and their first 3D release. Currently they are participating in the  HouseOGames incubator program, living in a house in Seattle, WA with four other independent game developers.

Youtube monetization disclaimer:

With the recent silliness surrounding Youtube Let's Plays, we would like to confirm that you can record this game being played, post it on Youtube, monetize it, and do whatever you want. We promise we won't sue you. We want people to play our games, and share their experiences.

tinyBuild's soulless PR department

No, seriously, there are a lot of people working on this. Everyone at tinyBuild is involved, and both Eli and David are actively spreading the word. Think of this press release as an easy way to get all info about the game. 

Also, let us know if you'd like some keys for Not the Robots.
