Design Many Robots Finalists Revealed

The intriguing design contest organised by the Shoot Many Robots developers, Demiurge Studios, is nearing its close, and the finalists have now been revealed.  The contest sprang to life some time ago, and was spurred on by a raft of entries at PAX East where the game was devoured by robot-crunching gamers.  Demiurge’s wacky booth probably had something to with it too – they was the only team we saw wearing a kilt or viking helmet.

Entrants were asked to deign their own big bad robot that would be shot to shit, and could let their twisted imaginations run riot.  The winner would have the chance to not only be flown to the team’s headquarters in Boston, but also to have their robot villain appear in the game’s first DLC expansion.  Tasty.

“When we announced this contest during this year’s Game Developers Conference, we weren’t able to anticipate the outpouring of incredibly creative ideas we’d be seeing put into the project both on our forums and in-person during PAX East in Boston last month,” said Albert Reed, co-founder and studio director at Demiurge Studios. “We’ve spent the last month sifting through an enormous pile of blueprints and ‘Why didn’t we think of that?!’ concepts, and we’ve narrowed it down to five of our favorites.  We simply cannot wait to have the fans choose which robot will officially become part of our game’s first wave of downloadable content.”

So, now what?  Well, the fate of the contest is now in everyone else’s hands.  Demiurge have thrown open the voting to the gaming community and fans will be able to vote for their favourite metal harbinger of death.  Cast your votes here
