About this game

Humanity is enslaved by an AI… which is awesome, because we’re on the right side of the conflict. Exploit puny humans to extract power and build your own empire! You’ll have to keep track of them to make sure they don’t succumb to exhaustion and hunger… although the weakest ones can always be thrown to the Bioreactor.
In other words, this is a indie resource management sim with rogue-lite elements, dramatic plot, and an abundance of pop culture references. Also, humor. Slaughter has never been so fun!

Key features:
1) Humor as dark as your ex’s heart. Immerse yourself in the life of a merciless tyrant!!
2) Resource management on steroids. Think fast, to the point, and abandon pity!
3) Rogue-lite (Almost roguelike) Every walkthrough is unique due to randomly generated events. And every failure is fatal — you’ll have to start over!
4) Easy to learn, hard to master. It only takes a couple minutes to figure out the game’s mechanics, but using them optimally is no small feat!

Core gameplay consists of transporting puny humans between various facilities using mechanical claws. They rest in one of the facilities and work in all the others. Puny humans are to produce energy for us (which is leaking constantly), they also have to reproduce and feed themselves. You need to plan your strategy and tactics in advance and track all your humans so that they don't die of exhaustion. The foremost roguelike element is that you can't save the game - you have to start from scratch every time. Besides that, a random event happens after every five feedings in the form of a text quest. A correct choice may provide some bonus, an incorrect one - well, you'll see! Many of the modifiers that you get due to the random events change the game's look significantly.

In the second campaign besides resource management you get a totally new "raid" mechanic. Send your humans on expeditions around a procedurally generated map and earn resources without any limits. Come on, you have to find the Time Machine lost in the wastelands of 3k-land!

Much less complex than it looks, also less fun. The resources seem to never keep up with needs on normal mode no matter what choices are made unless you get lucky and choose correctly pn the random events. Campaign 1 is trivial on easy mode, but everything other than that seems to me dependent on the RNG, no skill or player choices make a difference if you get the less optimal random events. Campaign 2 seems unplayable. I regret this purchase.

While the gameplay is addictive and it's fun to learn the balance that is indeed hard to master and easy to miss small variables... Then they throw a game ending random card in the mix like "you can't feed your people anymore" and you throw your lot into the reactor to generate a tiny bit of energy as you die. You can't win on skill, which makes playing this not just hard, but undesirable to continue, knowing half an hour of flawless gameplay can be destroyed by a RNG.

Super cool concept and graphics. I loved the pixel art style (fits the mood super well). The interface and objective of the game is clear. It takes a couple playthroughs to find a good strategy to survive, but it's still really hard. I've played like 30 games at this point and I can still barely win. The feeding system is good, but use as much electricity, or lower the cost of upgrades. Other than that, a great game, one of my favorite mobile games of all time.
