Maximum Games announced today that Tyler: Model 005, about an adorable miniature robot set in the booming 1950s, will be available digitally on Xbox One and Steam on August 21. The game originally launched via Steam Early Access in February 2017.
Tyler: Model 005 had previously been on Kickstarter, but this was then suspended due to shifting their crowdfunding efforts to IndieGoGo and their flexible funding program where they could still fulfill any perks listed even without full funding, which Reversed Interactive thought was a better option for the long term.
Below is an overview of Tyler: Model 005 by Maximum Games via the press release.
Many years after being shut down, Tyler is accidentally powered up during the height of a thunderstorm. You set off with Tyler to discover why your creator is missing and what has happened to your home, which is now overrun with robot-sized rats, cockroaches, and spiders, Tyler is faced with a multitude of obstacles and puzzles as he makes his way through a web of mysteries.
With light as his power source, Tyler must avoid becoming engulfed in too much darkness or he risks losing power again. And because he is a minuscule robot, normal items take on a completely new dimension in Tyler’s world: for example, chairs, stairs, and bookshelves are giant impediments. It’s up to you to get Tyler through the maze!
Dozens of different enemies will stand in the way of your goal. Luckily, you are equipped with a variety of weapons, from your trusty bolt-blade to boxing gloves, cherry bombs and more. Wear a huge assortment of diverse outfits, from medieval helmets to pixelated eyeglasses, and collect objects that will upgrade your skill tree and help you on your journey.
