The Plan

RoBoats Legacy (what you're playing) is a demo for 'RoBoats' - released to allow players to experience a slice of what we are currently working on and help us develop the best possible product for release. The full version of RoBoats will include:

  • More maps and game-modes (including PvE for smaller groups/pairs)
  • Character and boat customisation 
  • Online multiplayer
  • Player progression (levels, coins, etc.) 
  • Achievements, challenges and events
  • Revamped visuals
  • Dynamic environments that affect gameplay
  • Developed story

All customisation and individual progression will be tied to the mobile companion app and can be taken with you wherever you go, making it the ultimate local party game.

Hello, just your average next-door gamer here, I would really like to play Roboats with my friends and all, but as of now the companion app is only available on iOS? We couldn't seem to find it on google play store, and the link roboats.io didn't work either (linked to open page). It would be great if you could direct us to somewhere to download the companion app on Android. Regardless, great game you have here and keep up the amazing work!
