YOU'RE THE TRAINER
YOUR ROBOT IS THE FIGHTER
THE WORLD IS YOUR ARENA
WELCOME TO RAIVO
MACHINE LEARNING GAMIFIED
Think of Pokemon + Championship Manager + Dota Auto Chess!
Collect a team of robots. We call them Raivos. These are highly advanced creatures that are quick at learning. They start with no knowledge, so everything they learn, through advanced machine learning, they learn from you.
We've built an all-new AI toolset specifically for games in mind. When you train your Raivos, they don't just level up -- they actually learn from you and apply the new skills in practice during the game. Over time, they develop their own personality. Your Raivos will become your pets.
Compose your team, equip and train them, and enter them into an online arena for a match against Raivos trained by other players!
These robots are the smartest creatures ever seen in games. Combined with state of the art graphics, watching the robots fight it out is like watching an action movie, or the most intense eSports game.
Coming out to PC in 2021!
Later coming for iOS, Android, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch as well. Featuring cross-platform multiplayer so you can have your robots combat with the robots of your friends no matter which platform everyone uses!
Want to be among the first to try out Raivo? Click here to sign up now! The first lucky players will get to try the sneak peek version in Q2 2020, and more players will be added weekly.
RAIVO ALPHA COMING SOON TO STEAM
COLLECT THEM ALL
There is an ever expanding roster of Raivos available from two different manufacturers, each sporting their own unique abilities. We have bipedals, quadropods and antigrav Raivos to suit every desire. Some are small and agile, some are heavy with tons of capacity to carry equipment. Each Raivo requires different training strategy to get the most out of them.
There are a number of weapons and tools to connect, and of course you will need to train your robots how to use the add-ons.
DRESS THEM UP
Fighting skills are only part of the fun - your robots also need to look cool. Dress them up the way you want to show off their unique personalities. You can even customize their facial expressions!
Raivo is powered by UtopAI, a machine learning engine that makes it really easy to use powerful reinforcement learning algorithms in games.
Machine learning allows behaviors that are totally unique and based on training the player does. The robots will become pets with their own personality.
We have developed UtopAI for the purpose of being able to make this game, as there is nothing in the market that would meet our demands. UtopAI will be released for use by other game developers in 2021.
