Independent game development studio Finish Line Games unveiled its new title, Robots at Midnight, during the 41st Annual Golden Joystick Awards. Set in an expansive 1980’s Cassette Futurist world, this Action-RPG features intense combat, satirical robots, giant mechanical monsters, and rich narrative discovered through exploration.

Robots at Midnight follows Zoe, a scrappy and unlikely hero, as she searches and battles her way through the world of Yob, uncovering its secrets. Once a luxury destination now in ruins, Yob is an uninviting place overrun by robots – some friendly and others dangerous, and many that have begun to evolve, evoking questions of what it means to be human

Developed by the same team that previously created popular indie games Skully, Maize, and Cel Damage HD, Robots at Midnight is a cosmic fantasy that features strategic, skill-based combat, fluid movements from climbing to dodging and flipping, risk-reward choices and RPG progression tied to character growth, and an evocative storyline that provokes introspection.

“The team is really excited to welcome people into this world we’ve been creating,” said Daniel Posner, CEO and co-founder of Finish Line Games. “We’re big fans of games that have combat that require persistence, which is where we first drew inspiration and then built this interconnected world filled with mechanical creatures, deep lore, humor, and characters that have heart and soul.”

Robots at Midnight is slated for release in 2024 on PC and Xbox Series X/S consoles, with other platforms to follow.
