Indie development team Rikodu is rolling out their multiplayer robotic combat title on Steam this May, Second Hand: Frankie’s Revenge. It arrives on May 28th, 2019, and players will craft their own makeshift Frankie bots, and begin a quest to cause a robotic, rebellious ruckus. Players will need to master the skill of bolting together scrap and send it into combat (solo or up to three allies locally/online), to slaughter alien-controlled robot renegades! Use whatever’s close to hand to build these robots, from Chainsaw arms, heavy fridge bodies, and so much more.
“We can’t wait to bring the gear-crushing carnage of Frankie’s Revenge to players,” said Rikodu’s Managing Director and Co-Founder Alexandru Palade. “We’re excited to see what kind of amazing creations players will come up with as they dive deep into Frankie’s junkyard that we will continue to expand with more modes and robot parts.”
“It’s been a long and exciting journey, but we’re all fired up about sharing the game with the world,” said Technical Director and Co-Founder, Radu Septimiu Cristea. “We’re sure fans of all skills and ages will have a blast building, experimenting with, and crushing robots while exploring the various stages and their secrets.”
- Robot Crushing Combat: Frankie brings the thunder through challenging, satisfying, top-down perspective combat. Players must master unique part skills and devise strategies to survive the onslaught of vicious enemies such as Senior Cleaners, Formen, Boilees, or big, bad bosses, Juicy Joe and Le Kraque.
- Customize Machines of Carnage: With dozens of parts to choose from, each with their own distinct look, attributes, and abilities, players can create a robot warrior to fit their own playstyle. Wack enemies with a tennis ball launcher, repair the damage quickly with a defibrillator head, tank for the team with a boiler body — anything to become the ultimate gear-crunching bot.
- Home is Where the Microprocessor is: Strategize in The Hideout, the player’s personal headquarters. Players can deck it out in the finest scraps and junkyard treasures to give it that homely feel, perfect for conjuring up the most oil-thirsty revenge plots.
- Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Although the mass of mechanical meanies may seem daunting, local and online co-operative gameplay with up to four players helps cut them down to size with ease.
