Second Hand: Frankie’s Revenge battles its way onto Steam Early Access today

From Press Release:

CLUJ-NAPOCA, ROMANIA (MAY 31, 2019) – Independent developer Rikodu invites rabid roboteers and murder-bot maestros worldwide to wreak mechanical mayhem in their newly released four-player co-op multiplayer action game, Second Hand: Frankie’s Revenge!

Available now for Windows PC via Steam, Frankie’s Revenge features bolts-to-the-wall action where players — solo or with allies locally or online — seek vengeance against an onslaught of alien-controlled robotic renegades by crafting their very own “Frankie” bots from junkyard scraps. Those who master the art of bolting together everyday items into trash-tacular warriors will dish out … Frankie’s revenge!

“It’s time to kick some trash,” said Rikodu’s Managing Director and Co-Founder Alexandru Palade. “Everyone here at Rikodu has worked hard to make Frankie’s Revenge as polished and fun as possible for today’s public launch. Players can finally live out their dream of being a killer fridge with a chainsaw arm and a disco ball for a head!”

He continued, “With such a solid foundation, we’re focused on expanding the game with new features and content while in Early Access, as well as working with the community to improve the game even further.”

The junkyard was once a peaceful place where humankind’s trash became more than just treasures to a forgotten few. Sentient machine Frankie called this place home — until the day THEY invaded. Cast aside and ready to rise from the ashes of the junkyard, B.A.M.F.-bot Frankie is out for revenge against the megalomaniacal aliens that threaten the world of machines.

In Frankie’s Revenge, players can build their own Frankie-bots piece-by-piece, customizing each component — body, head, legs, main weapon, and offhand weapons — to suit their playstyles. Some parts work well together naturally to achieve classic squad roles such as tank and support, affecting a Frankie’s overall health, energy, speed, and weight. Other combinations require a bit more creativity and finesse. With dozens of wacky parts and hundreds of combinations to choose from, friends can squad up and roll out across the vast junkyard to save Frankie’s home.

Key Features:

  • Robot Crushing Combat: Frankie brings the thunder through challenging, satisfying, top-down combat. Players must master unique part skills and devise strategies to survive the onslaught of vicious enemies such as Senior Cleaners, Foremen, Boilees, or big, bad bosses, Juicy Joe, and Le Kraque.

  • Customize Machines of Carnage: With dozens of parts to choose from, each with their own distinct look, attributes, and abilities, players create robot warriors to fit their own playstyle. Wack enemies with a tennis ball launcher, repair damage quickly with a defibrillator head, tank for the team with a boiler body — anything to become the ultimate gear-crunching bot.

  • Home is Where the Microprocessor is: Strategize in The Hideout, the player’s personal headquarters. Deck it out in the finest scraps and junkyard treasures to give it that homey feel, perfect for conjuring up the most oil-thirsty revenge plots.

  • Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Although the mass of mechanical meanies may seem daunting, local and online co-operative gameplay with up to four players helps cut them down to size with ease.

Second Hand: Frankie’s Revenge is available now on Windows PC through Steam Early Access for $15.99. Free upcoming content updates include new robot parts, emotes, a “revenge board” with challenges and rewards, and new game modes. For more information, please visit the official website here:
