Aspiring game designers and robot aficionados unite!
One of the most prominent independent game developers in the Boston area, Demiurge Studios, is getting ready to launch its newest downloadable game, Shoot Many Robots, but not without seeing a few of your ideas first.
Announced to implore budding concept artists to show off their skills, the contest "Design Many Robots" asks creative minds to sketch their own vision of the ultimate battle robot by April 4.
The most creative and all-around awesome entries will earn a free trip to Demiurge Studios to see their creations come to life--not literally, of course.
But the victorious robots do get to appear in an expansion pack of the game, which is set to launch later this year. Assemble the full details and rules at ShootManyRobots.com.
Planned as a digital download for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the title of the game sums up what it will essentially revolve around: shooting robots, and as many as possible. Details beyond the "run and gun" nature of the game, however, are hidden in Demiurge's holsters for now.
Apart from breaking and entering, this robot design contest has to be one of the easiest and most fun ways to get your foot in the door of a major game studio. I can only begin to imagine how many illustrations of Skynet minions are going to flood Demiurge's inbox for this contest. I'm going to guess many.
