You may remember a little cross-promotion we did a few months back with our friends over at Will Pwn 4 Food and their awesome in-development debut game called Dodgebots. The one that will let you chose between ‘Free to Play’ and ‘Pay to Play’ modes in a variety of fast-paced 3D arenas for real cash and prizes all from the comfort of your own home.
Well, time flies. The game has now officially launched over at willpwn4food.com!
Featuring art and design from former Nerd Bastards’ writer Blake Stevenson, a match/game in Dodgebots can last anywhere from several minutes in length to day long tournaments with multiple opponents all looking for that top spot. In an official press release from Will Pwn 4 Food’s Master Chief Executive Officer Ivan Lukianchuk described what gamers can expect from their debut title:
“We wanted a game that was simple and short, but that would provide an adrenaline packed experience that would make your heart pound and your hands shake. We combined the fast action dodging of Unreal Tournament with the insanity and instinct driven nature of sudden death Bomberman matches. What resulted is a game that allows players with the most skills to outlast those who can’t handle the pressure, and reap the resulting rewards.”
Playable across all major browsers with the Unity Webplayer, Dodgebots is one of those flagship titles that draws a player in and continues to bring the good times, much like Goldeneye did in the heyday of Nintendo 64 or Halo 4 currently does with the Xbox 360. A hybrid of our childhood love of robots and our mortal fear of dodge balls, geared towards those looking to get a little more out of their gaming experience in a fun and easy to learn game with tons of play-ability and enjoyment.
These Canucks from Waterloo, Ontario can and should be proud of all their success so far, they have a lot more coming their way.

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like a Wampa sucking off a Rancor and shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.
Artist Derek Hass has created this neato superhero art which lines up something from the characters costume and their civilian attire. Each piece has been given a nice little worn down vintage style simplistic design. If you’re a sucker for prints, you can buy the likes of Spider-Man, Wolverine, The Hulk, Batman and more by clicking here.
