Idea for promoting this game via schools

Has anyone tried marketing this game at schools as well? I'm talking primary/early secondary level. (say 9-14) The AI editor is a great primer for AI programming and is incredibly easy to pick up. Plus the game is currently very cheap, which schools would love, and the kids will love the fact that a...

Re: Make Gladiabots FREE to play!

Fair enough. All I can say is that on android most of the highest grossing, most popular games with the largest user bases are free to play. Thats how they got so many downloads and users. Thanks all for sharing, and good luck on the full release. I look forward to it :) That may sound wrong, odd o...

Re: The main platform

I need to start getting complicated, I'm honestly amazed at how in depth some of those AI are. I'm still unlocking everything so I guess I'll have to be content at scrub tier for now as I expand my AI.

Re: Am I using the shotgun bot wrong or are they generally not very good?

I figured it was something like this: a high end tool that you need to work to make good. I love games Ike this: where you can grasp the basics in a very short time, but the higher level stuff takes a long while to get your head around (probably why I like dark souls, that and I'm a bit of a masochi...

Re: Le Elevator Pitch

I like the idea but it sounds like there's a base to the AI that you can't change. I'd like to convey the idea that you can be creative and do almost anything you want with it. How about design? As in: Gladiabots is a competitive strategy game in which you design the AI of your robot squad, with an...

Re: What kind of player are you?

My only programming experience before this game was a tiny amount of BASIC in high school and attempting to edit already made programmable block scripts in space engineers. I love the AI programming in this game though, it feels really intuitive. Especially the easy to understand rules it has (left...

Re: The main platform

........Dear lord! This explains why I just got my arse handed to me as soon as I went up from platinum league to diamond and straight back down to platinum again. Are all the top player's AI so intricate? I may need to spend a fair bit more time in the editor (I think my most complex AI only has ab...

Re: how far can an universal ai reach

.........Wow!

Here I was thinking "Am I putting too much into this AI?" When it had ten nodes. I did get bounced very firmly out of diamond league and back to platinum though.

Time to get complicated if I want to play in the big leagues..

Am I using the shotgun bot wrong or are they generally not very good?

I like the concept of the shotgun bot, a quick light bot with a powerful short-range weapon... The thing is: Whenever I use one it either dies super quickly and/or doesn't do much. The speed doesn't seem to help as I either let it run free and it gets torn apart by group fire or I try and have it st...

Re: Make Gladiabots FREE to play!

Actually most people hate the idea of free to play games. It's the very fact that very often it feels like you have to keep spending money and that you never get a complete game. The vast majority of free to play games only work because they exploit people (often refereed to by the companies as whal...

Re: Le Elevator Pitch

I'd say customize their behavior with an intuitive AI editor, rather than craft as crafting implies you're building it from the ground up, whilst customize would imply that there are limitations, but it still says that you'll have a lot of control over how you change it, also customize sounds less s...

Why do you mention "half the game"?

Re: Make Gladiabots FREE to play!

Personally I prefer the current method, If people have an issue with unlocking half the game by buying it, maybe switch the app name so it has (demo) or (trial version) on the free app and a paid for version. Not trying to blow smoke up the dev's bottom, but I respect the fact they haven't gone down...
