Festive Artbot Contest


It’s that most wonderful time of the year. That time where we get together with family and friends, eat far too much, get subjected to endless rounds of charades with slightly tipsy elderly relatives while hoping to steal a few minutes of free time to play a few games of Robocraft.

If the thought of spending quality time with your family doesn’t get you into the Christmas spirit, we’ve got an Artbot Contest that surely will.

For this very special festive-themed Artbot contest, we want to see your best Robots based on one of the five categories below (the brief). All you need to do is create a Robot that fits in one of the categories and upload it to the Community Robot Factory (CRF). We’ll then pick our favourite five (along with two runners-up for each category) and award some prizes. We’ll also pick an overall ‘best in show’ Robot too and make that a ‘Featured Robot’ in the CRF.

The winner’s will be announced in a ‘very special’ festive-themed Live Robostream on Friday 23rd December.

A special thanks to both Robocrafters maelou2587 and E__tech for the Robots used in the header art above.

The Brief:

Design a festive-themed robot based on one of the following five categories:

  1. Santa’s Sleigh – Must use Ski movement parts
  2. Snowman/Snowwoman/Snowchild etc…
  3. Santa Claus / Mrs Santa Claus
  4. Festive Vignette (a small scene)
  5. Festive Horror (as suggested by Drognin)

Each robot uploaded must include the term ‘DB9’ at the start of the title, and the Robot description must include the category number eg: Cat 1, Cat 2 etc.

Failure to include both the DB9 term and the Category number will result in your submission being excluded.

The Prizes:

Five winners will be chosen; each will receive either one week of premium membership or 25 protonium crates (their choice). In addition to this, an overall winner’s robot will become a ‘Featured Robot’ in the CRF (Community Robot Factory).

As a special Xmas gift, both of the two runners-up in each of the five categories will receive a day of Premium too.
