A lot of it showing the decay of a society long gone as you play a solitary worker drone who has been labeled by the robot society as a malfunctioning unit. As such, you have been banished from your home as you make your way around this new location trying to survive.

Equipped with the ability to control other machines, our hero must use all the tools at his disposal to rebuild himself and find out if any intelligent life remains. He must explore the desolate, disintegrating maze-like terrain, overcome the harsh environment, and take control of deadly antagonistic automatons in order to discover the mysteries of the world and the origins of its only remaining city.

As the only surviving city of a long-dead world, Endeavour City has for centuries existed as a robot utopia, following a strict set of rules and processes in an effort to maintain its perfection; a perfect world where imperfections must not remain. To all its inhabitants, the city under a great glass dome is as it was from the start, but something in the crumbling towers and overgrown roadways seems off to one, malfunctioning robot. With his former family turned against him, he must navigate the land beyond the domed city, overcome the treacherous challenges that face him, and seek help for his much-loved home.

Set in a vibrant hand-drawn avant-garde retrofuturistic environment, Retro Machina draws inspiration from the works of science fiction's foremost authors, Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. Players are invited to explore four diverse biomes, each with their own unique aesthetic and vicious bosses.
