Publisher's Summary

Regan was a robotics scientist that caused the robot takeover of the world. When his last creation finally completes his plan to free himself, it destroys the world in the process. Destruction offers him a second chance to test his wits and cunning in another world. Now tasked with a goal that would upset the balance of a new world, Regan might be a bit more than the people of the world can handle. 

This is an alternative retelling of the first Dungeon Robotics book: Establish. All the characters have been altered slightly, and there are new characters. Only the initial chapters have a resemblance to the first book and quickly change paths to a darker side of things.

A great story in the same universe

This is a great story as long as you go into expecting something darker and imo for more mature listeners. If you have listened to the other series Dungeon Robotics dont go in expecting the same thing. This has a radically different tone, more realistic world build and is much faster paced. I really enjoyed the narrator's style as I feel he managed to set a darker atmosphere. I also think he did a pretty good job with the different characters voices without being too over the top.
Looking forward to the next one and keep up the good work

Really?

I'm used to fanfiction being made by fans. If Peed has enough time to work on this then how much actual effort is going into the main series? Finish one project before starting another please. Even if the plan is to have Regan vs. Regan(which I believe is a very stupid idea) then you can just have a fully powered dark Regan show up in the main... THEN release a "how he got here" series.

Edit: Also, the change in narrator was a bad move.

great story, HORRIBLE narration

I like this series better than the original robotics and would normally give it five stars. But this narrator managed to ruin it. He reads like a drunken shatner, emphasizng the beginning of every other word then dropping off at the end of the same word as if it's a question or something. On top of that he tries to dramatize the end of every sentence rather it needs it or not.... it's soooo bad. makes me want to punch my own ear listening to it.

Should have stuck with the same Narrator

I understand the change of narrators, a vaguely British or intellectual accent sounds more villainous. However, given that this is one of what I have to expect is a rare turn of pretty much literal author fan fiction I think going with the same narrator would have been a better move. I bet that this was released with a much smaller budget from the publisher than the 1st book was because it just sounds crazy to release an alternate timeline to your story before you finished it in any medium. But if this one does is good as it should then I really hope you swap back to the previous narrators.

For anyone looking for an actual analysis of the story itself without much spoilers it's a pretty faithful re-creation with the obvious caveat that everybody is more evil. I think the best way to look at it is the prime timeline is a world where creation is the primary force and this world is one where destruction is the primary force. How dark that makes our world seem by comparison is up to you to judge.
