Game: Must Love Robots
Type: Live Event
Location: Portland, OR
Date: July 17, 2009
If you have been playing Must Love Robots and attended the special press conference held by Carol Coldoil about the new Terms of Service at RobotFriendFinder.com, you were treated to a special announcement of one of the events at the upcoming ARGFest 2009: Robot Speed Dating!
That’s right, folks! Must Love Robots is going to be having a live event at ARGFest 2009 where you can try to win the heart of a special robot someone. It had already been announced that the creators of Must Love Robots would be in attendance, but the live event was a carefully kept secret. Of course, that didn’t keep some of the ARGFest Planning Committee members from taunting some of us about a super secret announcement.
There will be a sign-up soon where you can register for the Robot Speed Date. In the meantime, may I suggest you go and register for ARGFest 2009 or at the very least check out the T-Shirt Contest. I’m quite partial to the Must Love ARGFest shirt – and not just because I designed it. It’s because you really Must Love ARGFest and Robot and Fanboy are totally awesome.
I hope to see everyone, robots and humans alike, there.
Update: The Robot Speed Dating sign up is now available at RobotFriendFinder.com. You will have to first register at RFF and then request to be added to the Robot Dating Group in order to participate in the Robot Speed Dating event. And you know you want to. You don’t want to be the only one at ARGFest on Friday who doesn’t have a robot date. You’ll feel so left out.
Update 2: Robot Speed Dating was a huge success! Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun with it. You can see what happened via either the recording of the Ustream hosted by Remix Fiction or a shorter version featuring 011ie’s revelation about Chuck at MustLoveRobots.com
