Well, the Shop Bots have proven to be quite the challenge. They are a great lesson in modification. They’re giving me a “Coyote” complex; the Bots are my Road Runner. Always returning to the drawing board.
The Bots suffer a lot of abuse at the hands of our visitors. But that’s OK, we take it in stride. Its fun to see to see what broke or didn’t work with each specific Bot. The real challenge isn’t fixing the broken piece, its making sure that that specific piece doesn’t break again.
I’m gaining a better understanding of what “Tough Art” is. You really need to test everything because you never quite know how someone is going to play or interact with something you create.
The tougher the better.
