Robotslayer is an independently published graphic novel, for kids and adults alike, that is being simultaneously launched as a 60-page story and interactive iOS app, including interactive animations, sound effects and an exclusively-composed film-like musical score.
Robotslayer is now available to purchase from Amazon, the Dorking branch of Waterstones and in a number of independent comic shops, including Orbital Comics, Gosh Comics and Nobrow! In a world-first, the story is also being simultaneously released for the App Store, available in mid-December.
The app includes a shoot ‘em up game putting the player in the role of a Robotslayer, who must save Robotolis from Dr. Grububble’s robot army. Vince originally drew the Wossbot and Peggminator as potential shootable characters, but due to the development cycle, it’s more likely they’d feature in a proposed sequel.
Humans and robots lived in harmony and life in Robotolis was perfect until revenge-bent evil genius Dr. Ludwig Grububble built a personal army, enslaving the minds of the robot citizens. When his brother is captured, one boy must overcome his fears and save Robotolis. With his grandfather’s help, he must become... the Robotslayer.
To help promote Robotslayer, father of two and first-time author Vince (who, by day, is the co-owner of a company that designs and manufactures scientific instruments, including products used for stem cell research!) has created a number of robots from the story in real-life, including this 8 foot replica! If you’d like to win a signed hand-made copy of Robotslayer and a mini-replica of the robot, all you need to do is click this link and help us to name him.
The winner will be announced at the Robotslayer launch party at Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes in Shoreditch on the 11th December – all are welcome but tickets are first-come, first-served, please see more details here on Eventbrite.
