Soap’s got new robots, just in time for the apocalypse

579117e8ce592668e9eac76f159ac280506165055a75326cadd3a8e4862cdafa“The Zombie Apocalypse” is a phrase that’s so widely used these days it borders on the redundant. The sad truth is, most people have forgotten that there are other kinds of apocalypses! (Apocalypsi?)

Well, I’m not going to tell you which other apocalypse will take place in my forthcoming novel The Non-Zombie Apocalypse (pre-sales available now on Kickstarter!), but I will tell you that the unlikely hero of the book, Sophia “Soap” Lazarchek, is as ready as can be thanks to her handy helpers.

Soap is a robotics student, so, naturally, when things to pear-shaped, she calls upon her mechanized legions (all 10 of them) to wrestle the topsy-turvyness out of the world. She’s got a set of rough androids made to look like zombies, she’s got a small squadron of quad-copter attack drones, and, of course, she’s got her faithful helper Rusty, the mechanical scorpion-dog with a nerf-gun on his tail.

Together, they… well, I wish I could say they stood a chance, but, come on– they’re going against thousands of non-zombies. The odds are pretty slim. What’s Soap going to do?

Less than a week until the Kickstarter release of The Non-Zombie Apocalypse! And, in case you can’t wait, here’s a video of a Atlas, who is arguably the real-words most sophisticated android so far:
