GameCity 8 turned somewhat zanier this year as we brought our tabletop card game, Insane Robots, to the Open Arcade. First-time gamers and veterans alike were invited to sit at picnic tables and try our prototype combat game, which has been steadily refined since doing the rounds during IndieCade 2013.
We ran games for up to 4 players using a variety of play modes, with home-made robot cupcakes going to the proud winners. Some games even took on a life of their own as repeat players began to teach newcomers. We were thrilled to see so many enjoy the game, and were grateful of the chance to test it at such a diverse and inclusive festival as GameCity.
