Head on over to Ivy’s site to download and enjoy the goodness! Groovy Greg set out to make robots that could love. He created six nanobots: Hotbot, Brainbot, Tallbot, Audbot, Strongbot, and Chembot.

Ever since releasing the game, people have been demanding a sequel. I personally wanted to see something completely new and original from Erin, and it seems like she’s […]
