BIG, Bad and Custom

Customize your anthrobots & exosuits with a vast array of armor. Build them big and beefy or light and nimble; it's your style! And of course, no brand is complete without customizable paint jobs, logos, and programmed battle taunts!
Once you've built your dream battle rig, finish it off by adding the perfect companion drone. They’ll provide data recording, scan analysis, and resource extraction. They also offer specific skills to use during combat. Armor repair, energy shields, advanced tracking, recon, and even stealth, pick one that's right for you!
You're not just fighting for bragging rights. Bounties are the heart and soul of Insula: Bounty Royale. Each opponent has a bounty on their head. Putting them in the ground means creds in your pocket and upgrades! Upgrade your base, bot, & your lifestyle! Be mindful of your notoriety, though. The more you take, the more you're worth, and the more others will want to add you to their trophy list!
Our arena designs are unique, they span massive spaces with just as much verticality as horizontal space. But don't fret, every combatant has their very own fully customizable flight rig! Combat is designed with fast-paced, acrobatic aerial maneuvering in mind!
Private Islands
Private customizable and upgradable base that provides story advancement and lore discovery through seamlessly integrated discoveries and achievements during the multiplayer arena matches, as well as a way to display your hard-earned achievements as part of the base decor


The floating island of Insula is both beautiful and extremely deadly. The various biomes that make up the islands' ecosystem are home to all manner of frightful beasts. These creatures may be territorial, short tempered, or flat out hungry... some just kill for sport.

The environment itself also poses it's own array of threats. There are no shortages of danger here on Insula. Happy trails settler!

Then there's the pyramid. No one knows what it is, or where it came from. But when that thing appeared... the whole place went to hell.

Adrian Martuneac
Lead Character Design

Ad is a curious creature, he enjoys creating non-existing things, some say he lives in a world of his own because he has a crazy imagination, others say he was born in the wrong dimension where robots, creatures and aliens aren’t as common so he’s slowly but surely trying to change that by bringing to life his creations at least in the game development world.

Lead Animator

SciFi comes forth from the land of Canada, wielding the powers of animating timing and spacing itself and as a long-time member of the FS Community! Her wit and artistic eye are as sharp as her laser swords, of which she has two, and dual-wields them just as skillfully. You’ll find her wearing multiple hats at once and collecting personal art projects like a Jawa collecting droid parts. SciFi’s ultimate goal is to brighten people’s day one smile at a time and maybe even a laugh through the art of… well, video games and art.
