3D action platformer Protodroid DeLTA will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam and Humble Store on April 27, publisher Humble Games and developer Adam Kareem announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via its store pages:
Show the world the potential of AI in Protodroid DeLTA, a fast and fluid 3D action platformer set in a beautiful and hopeful solarpunk world, featuring a colorful cast of characters to meet and bosses to defeat.
Welcome to DeLTA’s World
In a vibrant vision of Earth’s future, the world-renowned roboticist Dr. Shelton has created one of the first Protodroids, a hyper-advanced android named DeLTA with near-human levels of intelligence. DeLTA was made to “be the change” that shows the world the promise of what AI can become—and so she sets out to prove to a skeptical world she’s more than “just a robot.”
However, when a gang of Vypers attacks Shelton’s lab, the doctor is forced to enable DeLTA’s combat subroutines and retrofit her with weapons systems for self-defense. After DeLTA successfully fends off the attackers, Dr. Shelton sets DeLTA on a new course: defend the region against the rising Vyper threat, earn the city’s trust and affection, and show the world the true promise of what AI can become.
