This Wednesday we presented the third and final new character coming with Overdrive! He, or she, is called Jimmy and the LUX5000 or Amy and the LUX5000, depending on which side you play as. To see the full presentation on this new character, check out the Streamisho we did last Wednesday (the character demo starts at about 14:30):
As you can see, Jimmy & Amy and the LUX5000 are a powerful team that roll around the battlefield, shooting missiles and knocking enemies around. They also have what is possibly the cutest backstory for a team of kids and their killer robot:
Jimmy, Amy and the Lux-5000 Toddletron are a mighty team. They have won numerous fights in robobrawls held in the many arenas and slums of Circuit City on Calias. The twins love to crush enemies and cause mayhem with the LUX5000’s metal wrecking balls, which are basically two big rattles from their perspective. After each won fight Jimmy and Amy share a bottle of the finest Bovinian milk and watch cartoons before nap-time. Being big fans of the Awesomenauts they skipped the seasonal diaper league tournament and joined the team for some grown up fights.
Just like the previous two Overdrive characters, Jimmy & Amy and the LUX5000 are playable in Beta in the run up to the expansion’s release. And the Beta is still open for every owner of Awesomenauts! To get into the Beta, check out the instructions here.
