I can't claim I fully understand what is going on yet, but I suspect this may be sheer brilliance:

Work In Progress Indie game, but you can download the current build to try it out.

Quick single player guide:

WASD + mouse to aim. A is jetpack. Right mouse or wheel to select weapons
Q/E to switch between units. Q&E to select your 'brain' (the shop)

You are a brain in a bunker, and must protect yourself by controlling units. Harvest gold with the digger weapon, and buy units (delivered by rocket to the specified point.

I've known about it since 2003 Smile.

It's also highly moddable, but the forums have a lot of... Unskilled people, so the mods forum is full of **** made in paint.

I had a hard time controling my unit. I really enjoy just flying the rocket around. Looking forward to the finished version.

Single player is pretty much flawed since you can just hammer it for the enemy brain every time. Need to try this against a real person!

Does it work on LAN? or just split screen?
This is destined for Lan sessions :]

But seems you cannot order stuff until you let kill your first robot isn't it?

I think this games not fast paced enough for me Razz I tried it out, becouse the gifs gave me hot and fuzzy feelings in special places but the game itself was not too great. One of those games i play for 5 minutes. What made this game so boring, was the control system. It was slow. I hate the fact that I have to move either slowly by foot, or carefully by jetpack. If this game was all acrobatic pink ninjas wallrunning and not chubby robots whos body parts break easier than a light bulp, the game would have me forever in its hands. But the way it is now, my opinion of the game is shortly, "...nah"

There's no LAN, which I admit is sad.

Q + E at the same time to select the brain (shop) Smile

I think most people are missing what this game is about - it's more like an RTS, it's not an arcade game. you need to harvest some gold and get some heavy ordnance out there!

If I had a setup like the guys developing this (projector, crazy Ghost-in-the-Shell esque link up for four players etc.) I'd bet I'd really enjoy this game, until then I'll have to mess around with the physics to tide me over.
