Otto Matic Movie Contest
3:57 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media let us know they're running a contest to publicize their upcoming 3D action/adventure game, Otto Matic.

Written by Pangea's Brian Greenstone, Otto Matic is inspired by classic (and not-so-classic) sci-fi movies of past decades. Aspyr recently asked Greenstone for a list of the top ten Otto Matic inspirational movies, and here they are:

1. The Day the Earth Stood Still

2. The Blob

3. Buck Rogers

4. The Brain from Planet Aros

5. THEM!

6. Forbidden Planet

7. The Green Slime

8. Attack of the 50ft. Woman

9. Earth vs. the Flying Saucers

10. Killer Klowns from Outer Space
Quite an eclectic mix, to say the least.

Each Tuesday until Otto Matic's release, Aspyr will ask three questions about one of Greenstone's inspirational movies. The first person to answer all three correctly by Friday will receive, according to Aspyr, an "Otto Matic prize" of undetermined nature.

This week's questions concern the 1950's classic, "The Day the Earth Stood Still":

1. "The Day the Earth Stood Still" was based on which short story?

2. Who was the actor who played Gort, the giant, menacing robot, and how tall was he?

3. What color was the UFO?

Submit your answers by e-mail to the contest link below, and remember, this week's answers are due by Friday, September 9, 2001, when the winner will be announced. (One submission per e-mail address.)
