Robot Day July 18th & Game Jam? Jun. 24th, 2014 @ 02:21 PM Reply

Heads up, Robot Day has been moved to July 18th!

Three reasons:

1) I realized I won't be available on July 10th and
2) I announced it really late this year, so extra time is good.
3) July 19th is the Robot Film Festival featuring REAL robots, so we can kick off the weekend!

To celebrate Robot Day, make anything with a robot or cyborg theme; movies, games, art or music and upload it on Friday, July 18th. Would anyone in the Writing Forum be up for judging writing entries if we made a category for those? I have yet to formally announce prizes, there will be prizes though.

You are also welcome to put together a team of four and make a robot game with the theme of four, if you want to participate in both Robot Day and the Power of Four - you'll just have a tighter deadline for Po4.

Would you be available and ready to jam this weekend if we launched a Game Jam on Friday? Or should we plan a jam for July 11th instead? Pjorg suggested having a game jam soon so more people could form teams and potentially join Power of Four. Also we're long overdue for a game jam.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I recommend having the game jam ready for this weekend, because I think a lot of people are going to be busy working on stuff for robot day, po4, and madness day stuff. Plus, it'd be a great way to ease me back into a workflow. I just can't seem to force myself to work without an incentive like a gamejam.

Edited. Sorry, I missed some stuff.

I recommend having the game jam ready for this weekend, because I think a lot of people are going to be busy working on stuff for robot day, po4, and other stuff in July. There wouldn't be enough time in their schedule for another jam. Plus, it'd be a great way to ease me back into a workflow. I just can't seem to force myself to work without an incentive like a gamejam.

As unorganized as my Po4 team is right now, I think we'll pass on this jam even though we have a robot/cyborg theme. This weekend seems a bit short-noticed unless it's a weeklong jam.

Robot Day is being moved back! Great!

That gives me more time to work on August 2026.

Could I do a gameJam? *looks at docket*
I'm signed to two groups for Power of Four; working on a side project for Robot Day and one for Madness. Need to finish Voxelin, uGrounds and Sparkly...but...

Yea, sure why not?

Wonder if we can manage to get a Unity Programmer and a 3D artist together to get pumping on some real 3D content, since there isn't much? Depends on time frame as to if that's as feasible as good 2D content though...

So yea i already started something in a 80s/90s theme maybe for in a short clip/movie or game perhaps?
If anyone is up for it.. and if the 'sound' qualifies for 'robot day'.. here's some material clickthis
If it doesnt qualify i dont mind. the song gets done before the 18th anyway.

Tom Fulp used the word "jam" in the last part of his post more times than I cared to count

he's really intent on this game jam, jamming away at that magnificent jam

Actually now that I look around the 11th would be better, the FGL jam in Friday and I intend on doing both of them.

Tom, I'm thinking about submitting art for the Robot contest and it'll be my first contest.

Is there something I should put in the title, tags, or description to help you differentiate it?

YouTube should have a robot day on that date and show real robots.
