LONDON, UK (May 12, 2021) — Today and developer Orbit Studio are thrilled to announce their retro-futuristic action-puzzle adventure Retro Machina is now available for Windows PC via Steam, Xbox, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch! Recently awarded “Best Brazilian Game” at BIG Festival, Retro Machina places players into the metal boots of a lonely worker drone cast out from his society for his malfunctions as he seeks to uncover the mysteries behind the robotic world in which he lives. Set out on a charming adventure to explore the bizarre and desolate lands outside of the shining — but increasingly difficult to maintain — Endeavor City.


nspired by the works of legendary science fiction authors like Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac “Three Laws of Robotics” Asimov, Retro Machina evokes feelings of nostalgia mixed with hope for the future in a charming, retro-futuristic aesthetic. For hundreds of years, the sprawling high-tech metropolis of Endeavor City has been dutifully maintained by a society of robots that follow a strict societal rule: no imperfections will be tolerated. One such worker drone begins to question the history of Endeavor, and upon being cast out, must explore mysterious, ruined lands beyond the glass dome that encompasses the city. Players will use their wits — and a few spare parts — to outsmart enemies, solve puzzles, and finally get the answers they seek.

Watch the Retro Machina Story trailer below:


Key Features:

  • Fight Your Own Battles...Or not: While you may not have the size or strength of a military robot, as a worker drone you have the ability to hack into the minds of your fellow robots and get them to do your dirty work
  • Use That STEM Degree: As a robot, it’s inevitable that systems will break down and repairs become necessary. Assemble a collection of spare parts and tools to fix yourself as well as upgrade your defensive and offensive capabilities
  • It’s Lloyd John Dunn’s World, You’re Just Living in It: A gorgeous and definitively retro-futuristic design permeates four beautiful biomes, ready to be explored. Each one filled with dangerous enemies, challenging bosses, and a bevy of clever puzzles and hidden secrets to discover
  • A Thrilling Mystery: Just who were the original inhabitants of Endeavor City, and what happened to them? Uncover the truth behind their disappearance and try to figure out a way to get them back — after all, who will fix the robots when everything breaks down?

Retro Machina is available now for Windows PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
