In honor of their upcoming game and in preparation for the impending robot apocalypse, Boston-based Demiurge Studios is running a contest. You design a robot and enter said design into the contest and, if it wins, your robot will be brutally murdered in Shoot Many Robots.
More info on the Design Many Robots Contest from the press release:
Demiurge Studios, one of the largest and longest-running independent development studios in the Boston area, has launched an all-new contest for aspiring game designers and fans of the upcoming downloadable title, Shoot Many Robots. The online contest, dubbed ‘Design Many Robots,’ asks creators to design their own vision of mechanical terror to be shot full of lead in the upcoming project, vying for a chance to have their robot appear in the first expansion pack for Shoot Many Robots when it launches in 2011. Winners of the contest will also be given the chance to be flown to the Boston area to visit Demiurge Studios in person and watch their own robot creation come to life within the game.
“In the spirit of the Game Developer’s Conference this week, we wanted to kick-off this contest to give the next generation of designers a chance to appear in our first independently developed title,” said Albert Reed, co-founder and studio director at Demiurge Studios. “We hope to see it all. We’ve created a world chock full of chainsaw-wielding arachnid-bots, diesel-mechanical gorillas, and fire-breathing bull-dozers that exist in an industrial land full of oil, rust and spare parts. The door is open to add even more members to this motley crew, and we want to grow the robot army by letting our fans design and vote on who we should be blowing up next.”
Contest is only open to US residents.
