I am totally not biased when I say this is the best Alloy animation out period..

And holie shit that sprite animation..


Seriously, seeing that intro made me feel like kid again, sitting cross-legged with a bowl of cereal, watching my Saturday morning cartoons. :*)



After you watch that killer ass intro play the damn game!!

I'm really Jonesin' for a Lorn fix..

Ive been playing their music for months now.


I want to make a playlist from NG


Are there any musicians on NG you like that hit that electronic, moody synthwave vibe?


But if anyone who links me to a song that really inspires me, will get a year sub to NG X]

Hot Damn! we got Robot Day in this year by the skin of Our synthetic membranes!

So without further ado


Art:

Winner: Robo-butcher

iu_827417_48551.webp

By PitiGameDev

"After losing multiple times due to those rogue robots, I think the scrap pile is starting to make sense. A nicely rendered piece that works good as a promo for the game!" -Syrupmasterz

"The rendering and set up is pretty good ngl" -DyingSun

"I enjoy the rustic 3d look this one has, along with it's doom-inspired posing.

It pairs for an awesome-looking piece of work."

-ProffessorDunce -


Honorable mentions:

RobotDay Figurine

Icon of Sin

Phillip


Game:

Winner Cross Strike

"Very well crafted and presented game, one that i see has potential to be a top tier arcade side scrolling shooter similar to its influence Mega Man. I want to see more." TheExtremeH

"Clearly takes influence from Megaman, and does good by this with a mostly linear gameplay experience with slight backtracking elements, that give the user a fun gameplay experience. Not bad at all." - ProffessorDunce

"A fun jump and shooter that was a blast to play! Lots of care went into the enemy and level design and the final boss was satisfying to beat, even after getting all the upgrades." - Syrupmasterz

"Well presented, crafted well, I see the potential." -TheExtremeH


Movie:

Winner The Transforming Tank-Bot

By Coco199X

"Another day, another crotch joke. I enjoyed this little short, and the 3d animation is pretty good too! They're packin' a lot more down there than what meets the eye." - ProffessorDunce 


Honorable Mentions:

Apoidea

"A cool project that was, unfortunately, a couple of days late for Robot Day. The action and the heart and soul of the project is all there though, so it just needs more in-betweens to smooth everything out, and we'd all love to see a remastered version someday!" - Syrupmasterz


Audio:

Winner

The theme of the Battlebots by Manvineo


"It might not be as metal as the 56k, but it's just as bumpin. The classic jungle drums paired with sick synths make this super nice on the ears." - ProffessorDunce

"Other songs had robotic synths or robotic elements, but with the robot effect vocals, lyrics and instrumental, BattleBots was Robot Day through and through." -SyrupMasterz


Honorable mention:

56k of Doom

"My personal favorite. It reminds me of old metal remixes I'd hear on internet videos so often years ago. The modem screeches make such an interesting use of the theme, and fit perfectly with the already pleasantly abrasive guitar." - ProffessorDunce


Comedy Audio:

Winner

Stop that

By Fersto, LuckyDee, SummerOlives, and VoicesByCorey


"Corey commits his first robot homicide" - TheDyingSun

"Even after listening to it multiple times, I still smile and chuckle as B0T and the Creator get fed up with R0. Would love to see a toon animated to this someday!" -SyrupMasterz

"The dialogue these two metal-made-meatheads prattle on about is an enjoyable back and forth. The voicework is crisp and high quality. 

Inclusion of a that's-what-she-said joke scores bonus points". - ProffessorDunce 


Honorable Mentions:

Nightmarish Bionic Giant Mechanical Spiders by Durinde


"Narration about spider-shaped amalgamations of flesh and cybernetics in an ad while pop music plays got some big laughs out of me. Well played. :P " - Syrupmasterz


Thanks again to everyone that joined, all of you were kicking the judges asses this year and making those choices even harder. Its always great to see what all of you come up with!


And of course, goes without saying, but we enjoyed all of the entries, not just the ones that won or were honorable mentions.

My favorites list got a whole lot bigger after all of the judging, and I'm looking forward to seeing what all gets followed up on, since a few different things had cliffhangers. :) -SyrupMasterz


This year Robotday almost didn't happen, so I wanted to thank @syrupmasterz and @tom for stepping up as PrizeMasters, as well as judging and for @thedyingsun, theextreamh, and proffessordunce, for all stepping up to judge and organize Robot day this year, it means a lot!


Ill be awarding 1 year subs, and getting addys in the DM for stickers and stuff.

Thanks!

Oh and I plan to have the next Robot day on our regularly scheduled day. The 26th August

See ya Next year!

I'm posting this to gauge interest.

Tom has gotten a request, or two for Robot Day... The contest and Collab Board on NG is pretty packed..

I'm in the middle of a gig so my time has been pretty locked down, and I'm no longer working for USPS so I'm not making that sweet Fed Money, and can't drop the usual 500+ it costs for prizes and stuff.


But I DO have some stickers, a Pico pin, and maybe even a 3D Print for first place?

and maybe @Tom could throw in 3 1 year subscriptons for the winners?

iu_768101_48551.webp

iu_768108_48551.webp

iu_768109_48551.webp

(the print I send will be a new print and not the one pictured..It will likely be a bit bigger)

Holla back in the replies. I know this Day usually has a small turnout, but I've always been okay with that, I just don't like not being able to give out decent prizes. But hey, if you're okay with what I can offer, maybe we can squeeze a Robot Day in before the years out?

I've been doing robot day for over a decade, it would definitely be a bit of a bummer to kill it now.


So what's the verdict?

Been kinda Quiet, but also busy so thats good.


I've been tapped to the VFx on this 2D Metroidvania indie game, so far it's been a blast..


https://twitter.com/CookieCutterDev/status/1557695611956346880?s=20&t=BZIE7xIINZj1xgot7k26ZQ


Check out some of the video clips on their main account and if you're feeling it wishlist that bad-boy on Steam

And if you're at PAXWest this month, sashay over to the CC booth and try it for yourself

Progress on the Alloy FNF mod has been slow.. I still got plenty of art to do, but the real bottleneck has been trying to find a reliable Coder. Hopefully, that may have changed recently., but only time will tell.


Other Good news I working with an incredibly gifted unity programmer that is getting his hands dirty working on the Alloy Arena2 Prototype.. Right now hes basically incorporating all new features and functions using temporary art from the original game, but once we get more time to work on that Ill have more to share.


In the meantime enjoy this Alloy update of Alloys FootTap from the Mod

Looking to commission either a haxflixel or a unity3D Coder to help us out with the Alloy FnF mod.. the final mod is still many months away but we are without a coder to get the basics implemented. bonus commission Cheddar if you know how to implement Texture Atlas Sprites, .. please DM me or link me to videos of mods you've worked on if you can, thanks again.


There have been some really good examples of the FNF engines out there being done in unity.. so if there is a unity programmer out there interested that would really open up what Id like to do with the mod in the long run.


serious inquiries in the comments please


UPDATE: Looks like we gott a Keeper! thanks everyone that Dm'd and offered to help, it was very much appreciated.

If interested, link me to some samples of your work..(in the art portal or elsewhere), and if it's a match I'll DM ya details and price. thanks!iu_654615_48551.webp
