Have you heard of Demiurge Studios, or maybe Shoot Many Robots? No?? Well, that’s okay. I am sure you’ve heard of games such as Bioshock, Brothers in Arms, Borderlands, and Mass Effect, to name a few. Founded in 2002, Demiurge Studios is one of the leading independent talents in the Boston area. Which, until recently, I found, is quite the hot spot for a good amount of the game development community.
These guys were always the guns for hire that helped companies, such as Electronic Arts, Epic Games, Gearbox Software, and THQ, create just some of the awesome games I listed above. If you are interested in the entire list of games they took part in, you can check it out at Wikipedia. It seems like Demiurge Studios has recently shifted their strategy a little and decided to release their very own original IP, Shoot Many Robots.
How did they think of this game, you ask? Well, the team meets on a regular basis and just throws some ideas around. One day, someone said that they wanted to make a game about shooting robots. After some tweaking, and in between project development, the team finally came up with what you are about to see.

So I am back from PAX East 2011. I had a lot of fun being there, it was nice to see all the new and upcoming stuff as well as some of the old. This year was the first year that PAX East 2011 was held at the Boston Convention and Exhibit Center. I was told that there were some 70 thousand people that registered, which makes it a huge success, but from what I saw, BCEC can hold a lot more than that, and supposedly there are plans to make it even bigger. The world on the street is that they want to make it even bigger than PAX West. I was even told that there is a rumor circulating around that PAX might even be heading to London. It seem like PAX wants to take over the world… well maybe not, but it does seem that they are trying to give the fans, or consumers the ability to go to these type of shows and see the latest and greatest unlike that of E3 which is more media oriented. Having said all of this, lets go ahead and get to the t-shirts, that we are going to be giving away!
