Insane Robots Lets Loose Crazy Card Battling Mechanics on the PlayStation 4

May 31, 2018Written by John Abrena

Playniac, an award winning games studio, has announced that Insane Robots will be heading over to the PlayStation 4.

Insane Robots was first conceptualized as a tabletop card game prototype, using a “pile of old business cards,” according to Playniac. They created a unique card battling game that captures what most players love about the genre while removing most of the elements players hate. These said hateful elements are expensive card expansions, time-consuming customization, farming, and a bar that excludes players who don’t buy more cards. By eliminating this stressful stuff, Playniac was then able to make a laser-focused battle deck. With only 22 tokens, the game is easy to learn and manage, but full of unexpected turns and a lot of strategic depth.

What they created is Insane Robots, a unique card battling game that is NOT a collectible card game.

Players must find a way to master the battle deck and develop their own strategies, and pit their honed skills against local, online, and single-player matches. The game features what they call Hacks and Glitches, which will greatly turn the tide of a game if used correctly.

Game features down below, courtesy of Playniac:

  • This is card battling HACKED with no costly expansions and time-consuming customization
  • Compete in intense local and online ranked 2P multiplayer battles
  • Experience the epic 15+ hour single-player campaign, overthrow the megalomaniacal Kernel and save robotkind

Insane Robots will be available on the PlayStation 4 on July 10, 2018. Preorders will be available soon on the PlayStation Store, as well as a Deluxe Pack with a 30% discount that also includes a Season Pass with six DLCs.
