Open Mic Night II: How I'd Build...

Post by Batgirl III »

A few years ago, one man's fantasy became a reality in a forum never seen before: Echoes of the Multiverse, a giant cross-game arena for discussion of games and geeky stuff. Now, newly built in that forum was this: Multiverse Kitchen! The motivation for spending his fortune to create Multiverse Kitchen was to encounter new original builds which could be called true artistic creations. Multiverse Kitchen is the arena where Iron Builders await the challenges from around the galaxy. The challengers have up to one month to tackle the theme challenge of the day. Using all their senses, skill, creativity, they are to prepare artistic builds never played before. And the challenger who wins will gain the people's ovation and fame forever... and choose the theme challenge for the next round of competition. Every battle, reputations are on the line in Multiverse Stadium, where master builders pit their artistic creations against each other. What inspiration does today's challenge bring? The heat will be on!

If my memory serves me correctly...

In 1982, legendary television producer Glen A. Larson created a series for NBC Television. This series followed the adventures of a modern-day crime fighter, Michael Knight, and his technologically advanced, artificially intelligent automobile, K.I.T.T. On a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

Iron Builders! Your theme challenge this month is to build me a character named Knight Rider!

ALLEZ BUILDS!

Quick question: We need to Build BOTH or just K.I.T.T?

Must it be the character from the show? Or just use the name as inspiration for something otherwise original?

MacynSnow's judging criteria were posted in the previous thread and I've reposted them below.

You'll have to decide for yourselves how closely you want to stick to the character as depicted on the television show or if you want to venture further afield. During the first Open Mic Night, we were challenged to make a character named Chicken Boo and I won with a fairly conservative straight adaptation of the character from Animaniacs, several of the other builders went for something a little more outlandish.

A)Originality of Build:
B)IPlayability:
C)Strength's of Build:
D)Weakness of Build:
E)Is it a Fun Build?:

Numbers go from 1-5(5 being Perfect, 1 being horrible)
Highest Number total wins(Can't judge your own Build)

Well, me & Hoid got our's done. I didn't do KITT cause, despite the fact it was a TALKING CAR, never was the focus of the show untill after Season One. And i was going for "Classic" Hoff at his peak of sexiness(before he tried singing and died on stage. You can't go back from that one).
