Questions from the Id
11:48 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

For the next three week's, the folks at Aspyr Media are continuing their contest to promote Otto Matic, their game of intergalactic robotic adventure. Be the first to correctly answer three questions about one of the ten sci-fi films most influential on Otto Matic creator Brian Greenstone's design of the game, and win cool stuff!


This week's questions concern the seminal 1956 classic, Forbidden Planet:

1. Which Shakespeare play is the basis of the film?


2. Which famous robot made his debut in Forbidden Planet?


3. What are Robby's thoughts on oxygen?

Submit your answers to newsletter@aspyr.com.


(If you don't know the answers to these questions off the top of your head, go rent a copy of this movie now. It may well be the greatest science fiction film ever made.)


Last week's winner was Steve Klein, who correctly answered these questions about Attack of the 50 Foot Woman:

Q: What was the working title for Attack of the 50 Foot Woman?

A: The Astounding Giant Woman.


Q: In the 1993 TV remake, which film is showing at the drive-in when Nancy goes on her rampage?

A: Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958).


Q: How tall was the 50-foot woman in centimeters?

A: 1524 cm.

Congratulations to Mr Klein, who wins (as will every winner for the next three weeks) "a copy of Otto Matic!!! plus some cool Aspyr stuff!!!"


Oh yeah. We just love stuff.
