In the recent past, Ubisoft’s many botched attempts at effective DRM have troubled the PC user, and many industry experts fear the worst for Shoot Many Robots. Demiurge Studio, however, is insistent the PC port will be up to the mark, telling Ars Technica “We'll do it right, or we won't do it.”
Ubisoft calls the game "a four-player co-op run-n-gun side-scrolling RPG shooter filled with tons of weapon and item customization." From what we’ve seen, the game might have a chance at some cult status, if the team couples an effective leaderboard with their Survival mode, co-op styles.
