It’s time to talk about the corporations.
Here is an overview of the four active corporations in Mechadrones game world:
The Servotic Corporation is the oldest know corp. They were, on the 23th century, the first corporation that produced war robots with military purposes for the USP (United States of Panamerica). Those were different and not as lethal prototypes as the ones that they produce today, but a new era started with that.
Today, they are an old-fashioned corporation. All their models are a bit primitives with not too much firepower and low armor, but on the other side, they have augmented the hangars for Drones on their models and they are creating very powerful laser weapon for their arms designs.
The Tonkatsu is almost as old as the Servotic Corporation, but they followed a different way. At least until the Big-Robot-War times, when they created the MASP (Mechadrones Advanced Software Protocol) adding a lot possibilities to their models (war specialization included). That was the seed of the actual MEMO system. The MEMO allows the robots to have different Software Packs into their heads and incredible advanced and lethal movements.
The Tonkatsu Corporation designs have evolved into fast and agile robots, with good software support (their head designs have the highest capacity for Packs). Their main problem is that their robots have the lower armor of all the corporations.
Hengrove started in Eurasia as a Terrorist response to the war crimes committed by the Servotic and the Tonkatsu. They soon became what they fight against and created an enormous Megacorporation that has evolved to become the corp with the highest production of robots per year.
Their robot designs have the most destructive power, with great rocket launcher systems and heavy armor parts. Their main problem is that they have centered their efforts in improving their old designs, but they haven’t created modern weapons as laser or good support for drones and software. They don’t really care, they know they have the most destructive weapons.
It’s the youngest corporation of all. Their origin is not clear at all because they appeared so suddenly a century ago that there is not too much register of their movements. The corporation was directed (when there were humans) by a strange semi-religious cult that was very famous at that times.
Their model are very experimental and innovating. Their robots are the most versatile ones and their weapons have a high destruction power. Their main problem is that their best pieces require a high amount of energy to be used and don’t let too much space for drones.
