Great news! Twin Robots will be available on WiiU eShop starting June 16. That’s… tomorrow!
It will be available on both the american & european stores. Check it out!
For this console release, I’ve partnered with Ratalaika Games. They’ve been an awesome travel companion and took care of everything, so I can definitely recommend them if you’re interested in getting your game published on console.
Hope you are all having fun playing Twin Robots!
I thought it would be cool to make some kind of contest to reward you for playing this game, and a 3D printed figurine of one of the robots came up as a nice prize! Some time ago I made one for myself, I hand painted it and it’s currently sitting on my desk:
Robot #1 – This one is mine!
So, I already got a new one 3D printed, and it’s still pure white. It’s about 9,7 cm / 3,8 inches tall:
Robot #2 – This one can be yours!
If you win, you’ll get to choose between the black or the white version of the robot and I’ll hand paint it myself. I can also leave it as is in case you want to paint it. International shipping is on me too, except for customs / border charges if any.
It’s been a while, but Twin Robots is finally available on Steam! Save 15% if you buy it now – Go get it!
What’s new on the Steam version? Well…
- Added background music
- Music & sound effects volume can be adjusted ingame
- Added steamworks support (achievements)
- Player name uses your Steam username by default. If you enter any other name once, then that’s the one that will be used by default from then on.
- Graphic enhancements (depth of field, distance fog, vsync option)
- Background is now lighter when lights go off, so the black bot can be seen better.
- More gamepads supported!
- Vibration support on Windows via XInput
- You no longer need 2 gamepads to unlock multiplayer mode: you can play local coop using a keyboard + 1 gamepad
- Added a game manual
I wanted to include the Android version as a free DLC but Valve refused to distribute an apk, so if you want it just get in touch and we’ll find a way

I’ve been gathering all type of analytics data since Twin Robots was first released back on December 21st, 2013. Now that a significant time has passed, let’s have a look at some of it!
There is quite a bit of content, so I’ve categorized it in a way that (I hope) makes a bit of sense. You can click on any item on the following list to jump to it.
On a day like today, on December 21st 2013, Twin Robots debuted on OUYA, the first platform where it was released. A year has passed since, so today seemed appropriate to finally look back and write a post mortem on the game. Bear with me as this is my first post mortem ever! It will focus on the development pre-launch, whereas on an upcoming post I’ll write about what happened after that.
Twin Robots has just been updated on ALL platforms where it’s available: Ouya, FireTV, AndroidTV, GameStick, Android(PlayStore), Windows, Mac, Linux.
This brings all the platforms up to date on features (desktop versions were slightly lagging behind in terms of updates as of lately, sorry for that!).
The main feature of this update (besides bug-fixing) is the switch to a self-hosted solution for the online leaderboards; now they are stored on my server and they load faster!
You can now play your favourite game on your GameStick!
Get it here or find it from your GameStick dashboard.
Twin Robots has been through a lot of updates lately!
This is the list of the latest changes, ordered by platform:
Do you have a Nvidia SHIELD? Are you planning to buy an AndroidTV device? Well then you should know that Twin Robots has just been released on both platforms!
The SHIELD, thanks to its Tegra 4 GPU, is capable of running the game at 60fps! This provides a smoother gameplay experience, and its great gamepad helps a lot too. All in all, this is now one of my favourite platforms where to enjoy the game. It will show up on TegraZone soon, but meanwhile you can grab it directly from Google Play.
AndroidTV has just been unveiled at Google I/O, and these little robots were so excited that jumped on board as soon as they heard about it. So, they will be waiting for you as soon as you get your new & shiny AndroidTV device. Just search for Twin Robots on the store!
