Armature Studio have launched its latest title, Fail Factory! Which is a lighthearted, humorous physics-based puzzle title that lets players try to manage an ever-escalating situation that inevitably runs out of control into a ludicrous failure.

The gameplay in Fail Factory! Involves the player working their way up the corporate ranks in a comical robot factory, trying to get the coveted award of ‘Star Employee’.
The title of the videogame comes into play as a chain of interacting errors as players attempt to manage various assembly lines in a series of mini-games. Players will work in assembly, sorting stations and quality assurance to try and assemble and control huge robots in a physics-based environments where any decision will inevitably lead to over-the-top, ludicrous failure. Users can also compete with other players for a high score on the online leaderboards
The title is filled with various satirical, quirky characters along with over 40 various mini-games in total, all rendered in distinctive bright and colourful cel-shaded graphics with an upbeat musical score created by composer Winifred Phillips.
