Robot Comics Wins!

Well done to Robot Comics in winning this award – I’m expecting big things from them this year!

Robot Comics’ Robot 13 app was awarded yesterday the Digital Innovation Award at Digital World Book New York.

Robot Comics was the only European company in competition, and the only company nominated twice when the longlist nominees were named for the Digital Book World Publishing Innovation Award.

Robot Comic’s Android and iPhone app Robot 13 – adapted from Blacklist Studios’ comic of the same name – was the winner in the Comics category. Other nominees in the same category included the Amazon Kindle bestseller Tumor,Disney’s Epic Mickey Digicomics, and the TallChair’s critically-acclaimedOperation: Ajax iPad app.

Robot 13 is no stranger to success. The Android version of the multi-platform app was previously featured by Google in the Android Market, reaching 200,000 downloads in a few weeks. It was the first comic book app featured by Google.

Created by Thomas Hall and Daniel Bradford, Robot 13 is an amnesiac robot who battles mythic monsters. Robot Comics brought Robot 13 to mobile devices using cross-platform software that combined frame-by-frame animation, transition effects, and vibration to create a unique reading experience.

“Daniel and I strive to make our comics as good and entertaining as possible. We are humbled by the attention Robot 13 has received and thankful to the Digital Book Awards for recognizing our efforts.”

–Thomas Hall, writer, Robot 13

“As Robot 13 is a labor of love, the Digital Book Awards is a true honor. It is exhilarating to see your creations come to life, especially in an exciting digital format. We are grateful for all those that helped along the way.”

–Daniel Bradford, artist, Robot 13

Released in early 2010, Robot 13 was one of the 200 apps that Robot Media produced the past year. “Mobile devices provide new storytelling possibilities where experience and content go hand in hand,” states Robot Media’s founder,Hermés Piqué. “Robot 13 was one of our first releases that explored this and our goal is to continue to explore it further. 2011 will be an exciting year for digital content!”
