Prehistoric Artbot Competition

Get Your Robocraft Robot In Robocraft Royale

When the Robocraft Royale team set about creating their game, one of the things they wanted from the get-go was a close relationship with Robocraft and it’s amazing Robot creating community. The goal is to have a way of Robocraft players getting their Robot’s into Royale. As you’ll know if you’ve been following RR’s development journey it’s still very early days for the game and while there isn’t a magic “export my Robot to Royale” button, we are making improvements to the CRF which will allow you to participate in these collaborative competitions easier. We’ll reveal more on what those CRF improvements are soon™.

While we work on the improvements, it’s time to rollout a good old artbot competition where you could see your winning Robot featured in Robocraft Royale. Want to know how you can do this? Simply follow the brief (and read the rules) below.

The Brief:

The brief for this competition is simple, we want to see your crazy prehistoric-themed Robots; ones that you think would be fun to play in Robocraft Royale. You can build anything you want: a nimble velociraptor, squawking dodo, a terrifying flying pteranodon or a diplodocus the back of a pickup truck. It doesn’t have to be dinosaurs either – it could be a car inspired by your favourite prehistoric cartoon series or people from the neolithic era. The crazier and sillier, the better; we want players to laugh out loud when they discover your Robots on the Robocraft Royale map.

For this competition, we’re not not picking 5 winners and an overall winner; instead we’re going to pick our favourite ones and we’ll add them to Robocraft Royale in a future update. So, if we love 500 of your Robots, we will add 500 of them to the game (not at once mind you).

So, read the rules, create a robot, upload it to the CRF and ensure the name starts with RR01 – it’s that simple!

The Prizes:

Every Robot that we pick will be added to Robocraft Royale in a future update and the creator will be credited by name on the Robot’s stats pop-up.

In addition to having their prize-winning creaton added to Robocraft Royale, the creator of a winning robot will win one of the exclusive T-Rex Cosmetic Masks for use in Robocraft. These masks are super-special as they can only be obtained by purchasing Robocraft Royale on Steam (it’s out on Monday March 26th).
