Nanobots is a point and click adventure game that lets you control six different robots as they race to save themselves from being turned into scrap metal by an evil professor. Players will only get to control one robot at a time, but can switch between them by clicking on the row of icons at the bottom of the screen.
The game includes a handy tutorial, while helpful suggestions on solving puzzles can be acquired by using Audbot to converse with other characters.
"I was really happy about people's reactions to the writing. I always get a little happy inside when someone says the writing was witty, or that this or that part made them laugh. I'm here to entertain, and the game speaks to that all the way through.
The Nanobots story is done, I think. I tied up everything with a nice big bow at the end and even threw in a bonus minigame. I might do one of those self-indulgent 'mention old game in new game' things, but only for the eyeroll value." - Erin
"It was fun to lend my programming skills to another one of Erin's creative game ideas. After having so much fun making Spooks together, she didn't even have to ask to get me on board for this.
Nanobots is wacky, cute, and challenging. What else do you need in an adventure game?" - Vince

About The IGF
UBM TechWeb (producer of Game Developer magazine, Gamasutra.com, and the Game Developers Conference) established the Independent Games Festival in 1998 to encourage innovation in game development and to recognize the best independent game developers.
The competition, now in its 13th year, awarded a total of nearly $50,000 in prizes to deserving indie creators in Main Competition and Student Competition categories at the IGF Awards Ceremony, held in March 2010 at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, as one of the highlights of the Game Developers Conference.
The Independent Games Festival will return in March 2011 at GDC in San Francisco - look for more information soon. [More information...]
