Robocraft Garage 1st Anniversary
Exactly 1 year ago on a fine night between a busy Monday and an exciting Tuesday, Robocraft Garage went live. On that day I couldn't even start to imagine seeing thousands of robots being submitted to the site. In fact I was not expecting much more than a few hundred players to share the Robocraft experience with because other active Robocraft fansites already existed. Now, 1 year later Robocraft Garage has more than 12500 published robots and over 7600 registered users!
The journey this far has been amazing which is all thanks to you Robocrafters! There are a few highlights I'd like to mention:
- 7th October website launch, this is what it looked like back then. It has changed quite a lot since then!
- 10th October the halloween 2014 contest started, with a lot of amazing creative robots adding an awesome amount of quality to the website early on.
- 15th December the winter 2014 kicked-off, which also received many cool robots.
- 29th December a (back then) popular Robocraft youtuber called "UnChainedLP" advertised the website, giving it a huge kick in traffic. Thank you UnChainedLP! You can check out his youtube channel here
- 30th May the tutorials section were added to the website.
- 9th June a visit to Freejam which was very interresting. We also streamed for a bit, can be seen here.
- 19th September Robocraft Garage moved to Amazon. Thank you Amazon for having such awesome and fast servers, adds a new level of quality to the site!
I want to thank Freejam for creating such an awesome game and all of you players, redditors, streamers, youtubers, facebook users and bloggers out there for all the support! Thank you!
