Upsilon Circuit is an exclusive single server online 8 player game for Linux, Mac and Windows PC created by none other than Robot Loves Kitty. Yes the people who brought you Legend of Dungeon (Linux, Mac and Windows PC) have been working diligently on a developing a new concept in gaming. A harsh almost relentless game type, when someone dies in Upsilon Circuit, they can never play again. So when you are chosen to play, the world watches, and everyone has a hand in your journey, both friend and foe. Upsilon Circuit is two games intertwined. But no pressure.
The Contestants (the players) have the adventure, while the Audience intervenes. Each Contestant explores the overworld and generated dungeons in search of the Dream Tech Crystals. They fight monsters, avoid traps, and compete with the opposing team. When the Contestant fights monsters or gets treasure, the EXP and other rewards go to the Audience. EXP is used collectively by the Audience to level up the Contestant’s Skill Tree. Simply put, the Audience is part dungeon master, part strategist, and part judge and jury. That same Audience can also send in helpful or dangerous items and even alter the world. Simply put, the Contestants play the game, but the Audience is dungeon master, strategist, judge & jury.
As the Contestant, you explore a massive world hunting “Dream Tech” Crystals. You fight monsters, avoid traps, and compete with the other team, all while desperately trying to stay alive.
Robot Loves Kitty will also be putting the title in the hands of the public for the first time ever, at PAX Prime!
