The Laugh Out Loud Challenge and Celebrating National Robotics Week!

Happy Friday, RoboEngineers!

Last time, we unveiled two new and exciting parts, the Chatterbox and the Seat. This week, we’re announcing an exclusive Discord competition called the Laugh Out Loud Challenge!

What is National Robotics Week?

For those that don’t know, National Robotics Week is a week dedicated to inspiring students in robotics and STEM-related fields and sharing the excitement of robotics with all ages. It takes place from April 8th, 2023 till April 16th, 2023 and features tons of in-person and online events, including several FIRST regional competitions.

The Laugh Out Loud Challenge

To celebrate National Robotics Week, we wanted to do an event that not only showcased the fun of digital robotics but also highlighted our newest feature, the Chatterbox. Thus, the Laugh Out Loud Challenge was born! 

The objective of the challenge is simple. Players will have from April 8th, 2023 till April 23rd, 2023 at 11:59 PM to submit the funniest video or gif they can using the chatterbox feature. Additional rules include: 

  • You can interact with any human or group of humans. Feel free to either use humans from the sandbox or from the challenges. 
  • Submissions are limited to gifs or videos. To submit, you can either directly drop your video or gif into the #laugh-out-loud-challenge Discord channel or send a link to an unlisted video on YouTube. 
  • While you can edit clips, we ask that they be simple edits. No video/special effects are allowed because we want to keep things as true to the game as possible.

Prizes include an exclusive Discord title and a personal shoutout featuring your clip on RoboCo’s devblog and social media channels (which include Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube). Other players who compete will also have the opportunity to have their clips shared on our socials too. 

If you’re interested in participating, head over to our Discord and check out the additional details we’ve posted there. It’s also a great place to be in moments like this, as we typically announce upcoming features and events to them first. 😉

And that’s it for this week’s devblog! We hope you’re as excited for National Robotics Week as we are and can’t wait to see what funny moments you are capable of creating. Keep a look out for more cool updates coming soon!
