Prior to forming Robust Games, Adam was an Artist at Chucklefish, working on titles such as Starbound and Wargroove, and Joseph was a software developer with a focus on Unity apps and full-stack web applications for educational games.
When will Loco Motive release?
Loco Motive is scheduled to roll into a platform near you, Summer 2022.
What platforms will Loco Motive be available on?
Loco Motive is currently planned to launch on PC, Mac, and Nintendo Switch.
What languages will Loco Motive be playable in?
We can't confirm localisation plans at the moment, but we’ll be closely watching wishlist data and player feedback to evaluate which languages the community are most interested in!
What are the origins of Loco Motive?
Loco Motive originally started as a 2 week game jam ‘proof-of-concept’ as part of AdvXJam 2020 on itch.io. Adam and Joseph enjoyed working on the game jam so much they decided to take the concept and turn it into something much bigger!
