I have been working on developing a table top strategy game involving giant robots and papercraft. The working title for this game is called Roller Prime, but the final version will likely be changed.
So as I’m working on this, I came to the realization that I need your help! Yes, you! You with the love of paper and/or robots and/or games!
What I need are robot characters for the game. The characters must be original, non-copyright characters that are not tied to any IP infringing existing media. They can be close or homage existing characters as well as parody them but let’s try not to get sued.
Your contest entry must include:
- a drawing or image of your character from multiple angles (front and back)
- a short 3-4 sentence bio
- a list and description of any special attacks/weapons or powers
- drawings or images of any weapons or items your character uses
Robots should be sentient, that is to say self-piloting. There will be a call for piloted mecha in the future. Robots may transform if you chose but are not required to do so.
All contestants will receive download access to the Beta version of the game once it’s released.
Third Place– (3) third place winners will be chosen to have their entry added to the game and converted into a chibi paper model miniature.
Second Place– (2) second place winners will be chosen to have their entry added to the game and converted into a chibi paper model miniature. They will also receive in the mail an assembled copy of their model printed on card stock and put together by me.
First Place– (1) first place winner will be chosen to have their entry added to the game and converted into a chibi paper model miniature. They will also receive in the mail a fully printed and assembled copy of the full game to include all characters, play mats, rules, cards and dice; all contained within a custom wooden box.
Contest Entries must be turned in no later than midnight February 28th and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of “Roller Prime Contest”.
All entries become the property of WuLongToys to be used solely for the game or promotional materials relating to the game. Contest open world wide, however, I will only pay for up to $10 shipping outside of the continental United States so the remainder of the shipping fee must be covered by the contest winner.
Good luck to everybody and get those entries going 😀
