The political satirical endless runner we made with Bloodline Games Ltd is finally out on Steam, & Itch.io. and has been featured on BBC Sunday Politics.
In Maybot Run you play as the British prime minister as she attempts to run, shoot, jump, and slide her way to dystopia. The game is tongue in cheek and filled with some ridiculous moments; from homeless-missiles, to brown Brexit bottoms, to Maggy Thatcher ridding in a dragster coffin there’s plenty to laugh at.

The anti-villain in the game is the leader of the ‘coalition of chaos’, Jeremy Corbyn. He’s created a load of ‘corbots’ and other dastardly devices in an attempt to prevent Maybot reaching dystopia. At the end of each stage he controls a huge robot boss which Maybot has to defeat using her champagne launcher and her guile.
Maggy Thatcher’s got some cool zombie wheels
Maybot Run is challenging requiring the player to learn the mechanics in order to progress. Collect wheat to power up your champagne blasters and make defeating the bosses easier, collect power ups to help your progress, and collect taxes to buy upgrades to make the next play through easier. There are loads of famous faces from ex British PMs who are playable characters to Donald Trump in his star spangled underpants who helps you out of ‘money pits’. The game also has loads of achievements, leader-boards and unlockable artwork. Maybot Run featured on BBC Sunday Politics along with Corbyn Run check out the video below.

Mini review from Astrid Johnsen of Indie Haven
The game is only £1.99 on Windows, Linux, and OSX. If you’ve got a couple of quid to spare and fancy a ridiculous rampage through political Britain with loads of stuff to unlock grab a copy of Maybot Run from Steam or Itch.io you’ll be laughing all the way to dystopia.
