Synopsis

Robot Pirates tells the story of a group of Robots who in order to survive
have to steal resources. This all started in the year 1900, Engineers attempted
to create robot experiments, however proven being too dangerous for the human
race, the robots were disposed.
The surviving robots wandered the cold and dangerous streets until they
venture the sea. Although a safer place, the sea lacks in resources, such as fuel
and new pieces, so the robots start to scavenge from commercial and authority
ships, turning the robots into pirates relying on corruption to serve their needs .
These outrageous actions were led by the Captain Hidalgo "Bolt", the older and
the leader of the Robots. With the help of his henchman “Metal Jaw” Gertie,
Captain “Bolt” holds the power among the robots. John "Rusty", a friendly and
rebellious robot pirate seeing this injustice challenges the Captain.
And so it begins the adventures and misadventures of John “Rusty” and
Company, as they venture the sea!
