Dawn of the Robot Empire is a virtual reality action game for the HTC-Vive. It features innovative physics based gameplay that puts you in the action. The game gives the player a laser pistol to blast robots that can also be used as a melee weapon when they're up close. Additionally the player has a multi-tool that can morph between a staff and shield. The shield can be used to deflect projectiles and other attacks. The staff can be used to 'spear' enemies making them easier to hit with the laser pistol. Both the shield and staff can be used to physicsally interact with robots; either to knock them out or knock them off the game arena. The games use of simulation and physics allows you to play the game the way you want. At it's heart the game is a shooter / brawler and when played using the HTC-Vive and it's controllers is an experience that you can't find anywhere else.
