No wonder rainbows make him cry.


[[WMG: It's a metaphor about growing up.]]
You see, the entire world of this game is fantastic. Unicorns, super-advanced robotics, fairies, dolphins out of water keeping you company, rainbows and happiness. This is the idealistic mind of a child, where the world is an amazing place with everything you could want. The game encourages you to achieve your dreams, and when we were young we had huge, fantastic dreams like becoming a superhero. ''This is impossible'' in the real world. So as we transverse this beautiful, idyllic world, we think of our old kiddy dreams until we inevitably fail. This makes us sad, like when we realised we could never achieve what we want to when we were young. So our dreams become smaller and more reasonable, and though we may never win the game due to it representing our childhood, we can and will reach our more realistic goals.

The fairy denizens of the SugarBowl world live in relative peace, but among them are cultists of a [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu-like]] EldritchAbomination that exists in a nightmarish [[PocketDimension parasite dimension]] which occupies the same physical space as their homeworld. These cultists have begun a dark ritual to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt unleash their master upon the universe.]] Desperate to prevent the creature from escaping, the fairies built two {{cyborg}} protectors: the Robot Unicorn (Ru) and the Heavy Metal Unicorn (Hem). Ru remained on the homeworld, while Hem was transported to the other dimension [[ClothingDamage (burning off his immaculate veneer]] and [[GameFace revealing his metal workings).]] The two have since gone about destroying the stars (dimensional anchors tethering the parasite universe to their own) from both sides of the portal, weakening the Abomination's tenuous grasp on the homeworld. Ru plays hopeful music to inspire the populace as she gathers fairy refugees, while Hem plays heavy metal to pump himself up and strike fear into the hearts of his tiny, fluttering opponents. Dolphins squeal to encourage Ru as she retakes the homeworld. Skeletal denizens of the parasite dimension scream in terror as they flee Hem's wrath.

[[WMG: The Robot Unicorn from the standard game and the one from the new Music/HeavyMetal HeavyMetal Edition are lovers.]]


The robot unicorn is a bizarre mix of masculine (mechanical, super-athletic) and feminine (magical, sparkly) traits. Perhaps it is all [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory a metaphor]] for a teenage boy who believes he was born in the wrong gender. All day, every day, he runs from persecution and death, wishing with all his might to become the woman he always dreamed of. He no longer wants to wear a disguise, and he refuses to feel shame. He will jump head-on into the ocean, taking all the help he can get and smashing all the obstacles in his way. Sadly, though, he will never biologically be a woman- '''he will fail.'''

[[WMG: The title is literal; we're seeing the attack of a robot unicorn.]]
The robot unicorn is, despite surface appearances, completely out of place in the fantastical world she-or-he has found him-or-herself in, a mechanical being in a world of pure fantasy. That is because the unicorn is actually an [[Film/{{Avatar}} avatar]] of a technological / science-based civilization that has encountered a world / universe that operates according to magical, fantasy-based rules and is trying to invade / exploit it. The unicorn is a robot probe disguised to blend in with its surroundings that has been sent there to harvest the fairies (and the valuable magical energy they generate) and destroy the stars that create the forcefield that prevents the invaders from landing ''en mass''.

[[WMG: There will be a "Deluxe" version of ''Evolution'' up for reatil/Steam download eventually]]
The developers will eventually develop a full downloadable of the game, with full HD polygonal graphics and massive SceneryPorn. This version will retain the RPGElements of the Facebook version of ''Evolution'' with even more {{Power-Up}}s. You can also switch between the "normal" version and "Heavy Metal" version at the press of a button.


Furthemore, the title of the song is Always, reinforcing the robot unicorn’s desire to live. Unfortunately, the song is performed by the group Erasure, root word being “erase,” reminding us of the fate of the world and its robot unicorn, fairy, and dolphin inhabitants.

*For every time someone wins the game, one (1) unicorn will be granted corporeal existence in our world.




to:

* The farther the unicorn gets, the better the wish comes true. You know, wish for more time for your terminally ill mother? If RU crashes at 589 points, then enjoy those 4 extra minutes. Wish for true love? If RU gets past 50,000 points, you will meet a really nice person somewhere in the next five years. Always remember, when making a wish, that it can never become perfectly true: at some point, life realities (the ground), loss of faith (falling down) or conflicting wishes (stars) will make short of the progress.



Because you look into the light and see that this is a great game. There can be no shame because even though the concept is pretty silly and ridiculous, you know you want to keep on playing. RUA always wants to be with you, make believe in you, and together you will play in harmony, harmony, oh love!

* Is RUA a ManipulativeBastard whose motive for keeping us playing is somehow connected to world dominion? Or [[IJustWantToHaveFriends is it just lonely]]?
