Not The Robots

What is Not The Robots?  (from 2DArray)

You are a robot in an office building. You have to eat furniture and not get caught. A mysterious story unfolds. Not The Robots is this year’s most exciting Roguelike Stealth Furniture Eating Simulator.

Overview

Not The Robots is a software program developed by 2DArray. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named Not the Robots.exe. The setup package generally installs about 50 files and is usually about 290 MB (304,083,334 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 56% of users of Not The Robots come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
