Why 'bots and batteries? Because the Dokobots - a host of amicable alien robots stranded on Earth after a mysterious accident disabled their ship - require our help to complete their quest to map the known universe. Players can pick up both activated and unactivated bots, and with enough batteries they can boot one up.
Now the Dokobots are going to be mapping anything and everything - from the natural geography of Earth to the organisms that inhabit it to the diverse idiosyncrasies of human culture - so there are infinite possibilities as to what a robot can specialize in! We want players to let their imaginations run wild and create bot after bot that engages and interests other players.
After you activate a bot or pick up a Dokobot activated by someone else, it stays in the Guesthouse. This is where you can open up the Journal, see entries others have added, and post your own! A location entry marks a map with your current location, and a photo entry places the bot in the photo you take. You can resize and position the bot to fit the scene, and there's the option to add captions to either entry type. See an entry that's freaking awesome? Share it via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
For a quick and easy way to see which bots have been recently active, check out the NewsFeed, a list that updates whenever your bots are picked up by other players and when entries are added to their journals.
And the most exciting thing about this game? You can get all this fun for free! So that's the game Dokobots, we hope you'll find it to be as much of a blast as we do!
