Otto Matic Enters Beta
8:19 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Otto Matic, the new sci-fi action game from the makers of such classics as Bugdom and Nanosaur, has entered beta testing and is on schedule to ship in early December (or late November if we're lucky). IMG spoke with Pangea Software's Brian Greenstone this morning, who offered some more interesting details:

All 10 levels are done and are beta. The only thing left to do is finish the art for some of the segue screens like the Win/Lose and level intros. We're almost a week ahead of schedule...and should be GM around Nov 9.
Greenstone went on to say that Otto Matic should have even more broader appeal than Bugdom, especially to hard-core gamers.
When I was playing it last night, it struck me that this game should have even broader appeal than Bugdom because Otto Matic has some hard-core elements on several of the levels. It's a unique mix, I think, of the cartoony g-rated style mixed with some pretty intense action in places.
Otto Matic will be published by Aspyr Media and is currently available for pre-order through Aspyr's web store. For more information on Otto Matic, be sure to check out our extensive preview.
