RGC 2012 Hackathon LogoLast week, we announced that ROBLOX Game Conference 2012 will feature an all-day Hackathon, where attendees can use their scripting and logic skills to come up with quick solutions to ROBLOX puzzles. We put the idea to practice on Friday afternoon, gathering eight ROBLOX developers for our own mock Hackathon. The winning developers, known on ROBLOX as “QuantumSama” and “HotThoth“, didn’t receive tangible prizes — actual RGC participants will — but a brief Friday evening of bragging rights.

The mock Hackathon gave us a chance to test several challenges, a timer and leaderboard system, and helped us see some ways we can make this event fun for ROBLOX users of many tiers. Watch this video for an inside look at our dry run on Friday, June 8th.
