    The Robot Entertainment progress report

    In this weeks MMM blog update Justin talks us through the current status of the “12 things to expect” that Robot made for the year ahead back in February. Pleasingly it looks like Robot should surely score a grade A for their efforts so far this year. A vast majority of the goals have already been realised!

    One of the interesting tidbits in the blog post is word of exclusive content coming up in the official Robot newsletter some time soon:

    We haven’t sent out any exclusive looks just yet, but we’re planning to very soon. Make sure that you’re signed up for the Robot Newsletter to be the first to know when big news comes out!

    Make sure you are definitely signed up to the Robot newsletter to make sure you are kept in the loop. Missing out on goodies is never fun!

    There is also word of a super secret “Red Pod”:

    You already know about the Green, Yellow, Blue, and Orange Pods at Robot Entertainment. This year we’ll introduce you to the Red Pod. You may not know it yet, but some quiet progress has already been made with Red Pod. Unfortunately, that’s about all we can say about that right now. 😉

    Should be interesting to hear more about this when the time comes. Meanwhile, we can ponder on what mysteries this new pod will bring..

    Justin Korthof podcast interview with Seven Day Cooldown

    Robot Community Manager Justin “SixOkay” Korthof has popped up on the gaming podcast website Seven Day Cooldown. The hour long interview with Adam Crichton talks about a ton of stuff from both Orcs Must Die! and Hero Academy. The podcast includes details about the development of both games and what we can expect in the future. Plus some details about marketing and community management and all that goodness. Oh and our famous Hero Academy League gets a mention too :). There is also some funky intro music thrown into the mix for good measure.

    Robofan Spotlight – (Vvt76) Vince Van Tongeren

    Ever wonder who is putting up such high scores in OMD?  This week we decided to Spotlight OMD! expert player Vvt76. Vince has recently taken on the challenge of finishing Nightmare levels without barricades. Impossible you say?  Vvt76 has provided proof and a high scoring run that will blow your mind.

    We also found out that Vvt76 mixes some fresh beats on the side. We suggest listening to some of his house mixes while watching the amazing run. Here is a link to his music Intellectro and below is the 35 minute video. Enjoy!!!
