ROBLOX (The Bloxy Awards)

Time to Start Submitting Your BLOXY Entries

BLOXYs 2014The BLOXY Awards are a veritable who’s-who of ROBLOX film-making — the premiere ROBLOX film event; our own version of the Oscars. Last month, we announced the 2014 BLOXY Awards and the four categories of submissions. Now, it’s time to start submitting your entries! Keep reading to find out how it works.

Submitting your BLOXY entry

  1. Upload your entry to YouTube
  2. Put [BLOXY 2014] in the video title
  3. Send your entry’s YouTube URL and your username to bloxys@roblox.com

Entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on May 26th, 2014. After the entry period, we’ll create galleries of eligible submissions for each category. Viewers will be able to vote by giving the videos a “thumbs up” on YouTube. We’ll find the top vote-getters (assuming they are of BLOXY-level quality) and choose the winners from that pool.

Winners, of course, will receive a virtual BLOXY Award and have their videos screened during Virtual BLOXcon 2014 in June!

The categories

Long-form Machinima: arguably the most celebrated of categories. Tell a story – any story you can dream up, from comedy to suspense to action – using the ROBLOX engine (or ROBLOX assets in 3D graphics software) as your visual medium. Build sets, hire actors, incorporate music, script action sequences, narrate with spoken dialog, etc. The sky is the limit. Go nuts. Length: 2-5 minutes.

Short-form Machinima: tell an original short story, convert a movie trailer into ROBLOX, write a bizarre comedy skit, or do something else entirely. The only rule is the short must be filmed within the ROBLOX engine (or using ROBLOX assets in 3D graphics software). Again, feel free to build sets, hire actors, incorporate music, script action sequences, narrate with spoken dialog, etc. Use your imagination. Length: 45-90 seconds.

Music video: create a music video for a song using ROBLOX as the visual medium. You can write your own original music (about anything, including ROBLOX) or make a music video for an existing song. This has the potential to be the coolest BLOXY category yet. Length: 1-4 minutes.

Major league (ROBLOX) gaming: record yourself playing ROBLOX and capture those epic streaks, unimaginable acrobatics, and high-octane moments of excitement. Take your most dramatic clips from any variety of games and edit them together with exciting music and whatever other effects you deem fitting as a montage that shows how cool ROBLOX gameplay is (and how skilled you are). Length: 30-60 seconds.

Minor details

If you’re looking for inspiration or just need an idea of what constitutes an award-winning entry, visit our YouTube channel. We have a playlist featuring all of last year’s BLOXY winners.

Good luck, film-makers!

LEGO CUUSOO is now LEGO Ideas

legonenen:

Interesting, :P
Can’t wait to start my own projects…

Originally posted on The Luprechaun:

On April 30th, LEGO CUUSOO’s beta period ended, and has now became LEGO Ideas:

Today we are happy to invite you to join LEGO Ideas; a continuation of the former LEGO CUUSOO experience, more closely integrated with the LEGO experience online.

In the fall of 2008, CUUSOO Systems and the LEGO Group teamed up to launch the LEGO CUUSOO crowdsourcing experiment. Initially, the site was only available in Japanese. But the promising results from the pilot led to the launch of the international LEGO CUUSOO beta site in the fall of 2011. The LEGO Group is very happy to announce that the partnership with CUUSOO Systems, has been such a success that we have decided to integrate the CUUSOO concept more closely into the LEGO experience called LEGO Ideas. We are grateful for the many years of collaboration and experimentation between our two companies and wish CUUSOO Systems continued success…

LEGO Minifigures Online Open Beta Starts in June

Open Beta Announced, By Funcom and on May/June LEGO magazine.

Originally posted on LEGO Universe News!:

Today, Funcom announced the new Open Beta for LEGO Minifigures Online. Currently, the game is in it’s Closed Beta phase with very few users (only the lucky few got in). In June, everyone (in certain regions of the world) can play LEGO Minifigures Online. Funcom even told a little bit about May/June’s LEGO Club Magazine. According to the post, LEGO Club members will receive a free minifigure (most likely in-game minifigure, but the post was a bit un-clear) and they will be able to vote on the minifigures everyone gets.

Remember, Reserrection day.

Remember this day, the day Jesus Christ rose from the grave. read the Ending chapters of Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John. and think about it…

Jesus Christ died for us, and then he arose as nobody else ever did. so much evil is in the world. everyone of us is at fault. I am glad that I know him, and that He is alive.

You might notice that the GUI is very similar to LEGO Universe’s. Especially in the health bar. ;) Although there was LEGO Universe music in the original trailer for LEGO Minifigures Online, it has all been replaced with new music made specifically for this game.

Also, don’t forget that you can still register for Closed Beta!

At last, an FPS where no one dies

Originally posted on Stopsecret Design:

Hi guys!

This game took me maybe four days in total. Whipped up a LAN fps ‘laser tag’ game. No blood, gore, death. When you lose all your ‘health’, your gun just says ‘gg’ (good game) and you can run around the map in a spectator mode. I tried to get it so that it could be played over more than LAN (using a server) but had a hard time with that.

Believe it or not, I work on small games like this a lot, but rarely post my progress online ;)
