A downloadable lumen game

Buy Now$10.00 USD or more


AUTOMATA is a rules-lite, robot role-playing game for two to five players.

You play as a team of robotic super heroes, sworn to protect the innocent. Diabolical villains threaten to take over the world with their hordes of mechanical monstrosities. Using your unique powers and abilities, you must work together to foil their dastardly plans.

This game is a homage to some of the movies, video games, and cartoons from our childhood, that still evoke fond memories in us today and helped to inspire our young imaginations.

Investing in the project provides you with instant access to the current version of the game, along with continued updates as we develop the game further. 

The current version contains:

- The cores rules

- 6 Playable Hero Models

- A d66 table of Upgrade Abilities

- A Starter Adventure

- 8 Enemy Types and rules to create your own


AUTOMATA is part of the Lux Collective and is current undergoing Itchfunding to fund its active development. 

Purchasing this version of the game will help us to invest in making it  the best we can make it.

Our goal is to raise $500, which will allow us to add further artwork, write extra content, develop tools, and to pay ourselves for our work.

AUTOMATA is currently planned for a digital release only.

We've created a digital character sheet for players to use whilst playing the game:

A picture of the digital character sheet for the game AUTOMATA. The sheet depicts a series of abilities that the play can use, as well as trackers for their stats, such as Health, Energy, and Sparks

This sheet lets you select a Model, your Upgrade Abilities, and keep track of your Health, Energy, and Spark. You can find it here: https://www.arcaneatlas.games/automata/character

Put it on while you play and you'll find plenty of bleeps and bloops to save the world too!
