Tanksgiving Artbot Design Contest

tanksgiving_artbot_contest_On the fourth Thursday in November, our American cousins celebrate Thanksgiving; originally celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Nowadays it’s a time for getting together with family and friends, eating turkey (or vegetarian/vegan equivalent), pumpkin pie and playing copious amounts of Robocraft.

With Thanksgiving at the front of our minds, we thought long and hard about a suitable artbot contest.. What should it be? Thanksgiving food? Then we ran out of ideas and decided to play on the word Thanksgiving instead.

So for this week’s Artbot Design Contest we really want to see your ‘tanks’ (see what we did there?) From their origins in WWI to the super tanks of the future, we want you to create a tank and upload it to the Community Robot Factory (CRF). We are looking for ‘artbots’ and so don’t need to be ‘combat ready’. It can be historically accurate or way-out-there and wacky – as long as it’s a tank, we want to see it.

When designing your tanks, please ensure they have at least TWO tank tracks on them; designs with one or no tank track parts attached will not be accepted. Also, please ensure that your robot’s name starts with DB8 – this allows us to filter the submissions correctly. Again, any robot submissions whose name does not start with DB8 will be ignored and not considered.

Oh and before I forget… we have some other cool plans to celebrate Thanksgiving in Robocraft this week, so make sure you keep an eye out on Robocraftgame.com for details…

A special thanks to user Forged1212 for their awesome tank ‘GDI Marv’ that we used in the header image.
