MAYAN DEATH ROBOTS: The best party game has arrived before the end of the world year!

– Alien killer robots blow everything to hell in furious versus battles, out now on PC via Steam –
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico – It’s not the end of the world, it’s a beginning of a new one. A world in which the Mayan Death Robots blow great big holes in the lush landscape of Latin America in the name of alien televisual entertainment. As the Belgian soothsayers at Sileni Studios predicted, the full force of the killer alien robots has been unleashed today, with Mayan Death Robots available now for PC via Steam priced 14.99 € plus a 10% discount for the first week.

Get it here now:

A remarkable recent discovery in the jungles of Central America has inspired a short documentary film about the Mayan Death Robots phenomenon, which explains the chaos these mechanical aliens unleashed when they invaded our majestic planet.

Take a look at the micro-documentary (new trailer) right here:


Yes the Mayan Death Robots are here, using heavy arms to shake the gods from their eternal sleep, irritating the hell out of Spanish conquistadors, and generally smashing everything to hell, including each other. Choose your robot and launch into explosive one-on-one versus battles against friends in local multiplayer, or go head to head with the alien robot AI. It’s PvP, but not as we know it. The chaos keeps coming with both opponents taking their turns simultaneously for a maximum of Maya madness every time.

“We designed this game to be most fun played with a friend in local multiplayer, so I really recommend you do that if you can,” said Karel Crombecq, solo code wonk at Sileni Studios. “You can play against the AI and have a great time, but you’ll get the experience we wanted to give if you concentrate on knocking the crap out of a friend within close cursing distance. Enjoy!”

Published by Soedesco, Mayan Death Robots is out today for PC via Steam. The game is coming to consoles at a later date.

About Mayan Death Robots
Mayan Death Robots reinvents the artillery genre in a Mayan setting that’s been invaded by alien killing machines. Pick a robot from the roster and enter the arena to destroy your opponent’s power core. Aim your weapon before the timer runs out, but don’t be distracted by the pretty scenery: when the rockets start flying, you already need to plan your next move! Will you choose to move your robot to a better vantage point, or will you build defenses to keep your opponent from landing a killing blow?

Mayan Death Robots won the “Best Game in Show – Audience Choice Award” at Casual Connect Eastern Europe 2014 in Belgrade.

About Sileni Studios
Sileni Studios was founded in 2012 by Karel Crombecq, who left his computer science research job at the university to pursue his childhood dream of making games. Knowing that he had the drawing skills of a toddler, he recruited Erwin Heylen, who takes care of the graphical side of things. Together, they aim to bring life to the crazy ideas that spring from their minds.
