OLRmageddon

After taking a month hiatus (because running this compo is so exhausting), we return to our regularly scheduled ghost town! Captain Hypocrite won last time for the 3rd time in a ROW, and he gives us our new theme:



Yes, Wir Sind Die Roboter! Or, We Are the Robots for us English speakers. Any game with a robot (or android) as the protagonist is fair for the compo this month. HOWEVER, there is one catch to this: NO MEGA MAN GAMES! Looks like you'll have to get your robotic jollies somewhere else this time!

And our bonus:



What robot competition would be complete without some robot voices? Use any type of robot voice in your mix, and you earn those delectable two extra points. Voice samples (that is, audio clips either featuring a robot voice or manipulated to sound like a robot) are allowed, so don't fret if you can't work autotune or a Speak & Spell!

Arrow Mixing begins when you read this.
Exclamation Mixing ends on October 27th at 11:59 PM EST (8:59 PM for the PST-ers).
Arrow Voting begins as soon as the songs are uploaded to the site.
Exclamation Voting ends on October 31st at 11:59 PM EST.
dump truck Rinse & repeat.

bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzt

'Speaking' of Speak & Spell (hurr hurr), I just remembered this free sample library: Speak & Spell by Soniccouture.

i actually compiled Software Automatic Mouth (1980 Mac application) and got it to accept input through IRC (i.e. "!sam i am a faggot") and output through ventrilo ( Nintendo! I AM A FAGGOT Nintendo! ).

i am that ready for this.

I would consider them eligible; however, Captain Hypocrite told me he might not be around for a few days, so proceed with caution (aka have a back-up ready in case cyborgs are, in fact, not eligible) until he returns.

As voice samples are allowed, may I presume that Vocaloid is totally kosher for the bonus?

I dunno what Vocaloid is, but everything that sounds like a robot voice is eligible.

Vocaloid is a singing synthesizer, most notably used for anime songs. It sounds more akin to an autotuned voice, depending on the range, but theoretically it is a robot voice, since speech is being generated by something electrical rather than human.

I'm not a fan of Vocaloid, but if anyone (not me) makes some insanely and hilariously impossible sounds with it that'd rock.
