About

 Welcome! You have stepped through the doors of the

Constructing robots in a fully automated factory is quite a simple job, really. To be honest, it is such a bore that your abilities are hardly even challenged as the head of the robot assembly. Thus you make a bet with the other overseers at the robot assembly line: who can build the best robots the quickest? The loser will buy lunch oil for everyone. There IS the faint chance of someone falling down from the conveyor belts and getting scrapped. Fortunately, those unfortunate robots can be accounted for as collateral damage...

In Robot Factory, players will guide their robots in a maze-like factory floor, using conveyor belts that keep moving turn by turn. By playing programming cards, players will enhance the movement of their robot, in an effort to construct the most advanced and able robot. Gathering robot parts will make robots faster, stronger, and more skillful thus aiding you in your quest to construct the ultimate robot, remember the required assembly instructions must be kept in mind. Once a player has enough parts for assembly, they assemble them in the required area, and are awarded Victory Points. However, the players’ robo blocks may be pushed off the board, and they only have a limited number of “lives” – CPU's – to reboot themselves after falling. You want to gather all the parts, but so does everyone else.

Keep your processor cool and tires on the belt!

Be Aware, this game will knock your Robo Block Off!!

Risks and challenges

Our risks are very standard fare for a Kickstarter campaign, delays were they to come would most likely be due to scheduling times, and shipment times from getting a game from one side of the world to the other.

There should not be any delays in development, as the base game is very much done; there may be some changes in wordings, we will edit the rule book somewhat etc. but the core game is done. We will finalize the design on all achieved stretch goals and pledges after the campaign.

Robot Factory is our 6th game, so we are well informed about the printing process, file requirements, phases of manufacturing and speed bumps. This should provide a smooth print run, but alas human mistakes are possible. Some element may end up in the wrong place even after multiple checks; a forgotten outdated sentence in the rulebook; a mistaken file format causes emails to be bounced around for days… If we spot these early on, it’s no problem, but late realizations may cause the printing to be delayed. It goes without saying that we will be extremely vigilant in avoiding this scenario.

Because the base game is done, there is no risk in the funding. If this project passes, you WILL get the game. All the pledge-rewards need some time to finalize, or they might cause unexpected hiccups in the shipping costs, but we’re prepared to suffer a few losses in that regard.

We have long standing relationships with great manufacturing partners and the final product that you get will most definitely be of the highest quality!

TO SUM IT UP: Our risks stem mainly from unexpected human errors in the pre-production & manufacturing.
