Independent developer Demiurge Studios, which has contributed to a number of titles like Bioshock and Borderlands, announced its first game based on an original IP: Shoot Many Robots, a "Robot Murder Simulator" coming to digital download platforms for consoles next year.

The company hasn't revealed much about the game outside of this live-action teaser trailer, but it says Shoot Many Robots will deliver "an onslaught of innovative cross-genre action that will have multiple players working together to fight through an intense and chaotic robot uprising."

"We’ve worked on a ton of amazing projects over the last few years, but we knew it was finally time to bring our own original creation to life," sys Demiurge Studios' co-founder and studio director Albert Reed.

He adds, "Our team is proud to be pouring every ounce of sweat, smoke, shrapnel, chainsaw grease and raw manpower we have into this project. Get ready – robots are the new zombies, and we can’t wait to show you why."
