Want to win a cool collectors item from the Robot Team at RTX 2012? After all of the fun and interviews, the Robot team was kind enough to autograph a couple of my media credentials. The Pass was signed by Justin “Sixoay” Korthof-Community Manager, David Kubalak – Art Director, Nate “N8″ Stefan – Concept Artist, and Bart Tiongson -Concept Artist.
The guys swore that wearing the pass will add +10% damage to any Hero Academy units attack and increase you head shot percentage in OMD2. This may just be an urban myth, but it’s worth a try.
To win one just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a tweet to @kennygamer and say “enter me for the pass contest”. We will pick a winner at random.
We were able to catch up with the Robot Team at RTX 2012. We have a series of interviews to be released over the next few days. Here is a first look at Hero Academy :TF2 team in action.
I know the studio is named Robot Entertainment, but this is ridiculous. I’ve met a few of the developers when visiting the Robot Entertainment studios and they “seem” to be human. I’ve never seen cyborg parts, bolts protruding from a neck, or wires hanging out of a shirt sleeve. They have always looked human on the surface…………… until yesterday.
What changed yesterday? I watched a live streaming event of Orcs Must Die 2. During the session Robot revealed a new “Endless Mode” and other great additions to the upcoming orc slaying sequel. During the stream they showed fans new charms, new traps, a new skull system, new ragdoll effects, new animations, a new Co-op mode, new campaign, new defenses, new enemies, a new upgrade system, new skins, new chances for higher combos and tons more.
After it was over…… I concluded.
“It’s not humanly possible to make such a great game in just 299 days. These guys must be hybrid machines. It can’t be done by mere mortals!”
OMD was released last October and the Robot team has already made amazing progress. During this small development window, fans have also seen the release of Hero Academy. The popular iOS game has additionally published two very polished expansion teams and recently announced a PC version of the game that will be available on the Steam platform in early August 2012.
Is that all?……. Nope.
Last week Yodo1 revealed the launch of its first major title, which will be an adapted version of Robot Entertainment’s Hero Academy especially for the Chinese mobile market. This move will expose Hero Academy to a growing Chinese mobile market that is reportedly 180 million people strong.
So, while I’m at RTX this weekend getting footage of the new games and interviewing the developers. I will be looking for wires and other proof that the Robot guys are bionic creatures. Make sure that you check back in for details.
