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

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
