Unsurprisingly, the Trukz.com "Most Awesome, Giant 8FT Robot in the World" competition proves rather popular

Dublin, Ireland

3rd December 2008

Due to a surge in demand in late November, Trukz has announced the extension of their Giant Robot Competition, which now has a new finish date of December 14th 2008.

With tens of thousands of drivers driving over 250 million in-game miles since the start of November, our competition has been extremely popular with players. With an unexpected surge in activity towards the end of the month, and the repeated requests for more time, we felt it only fair and reasonable to extend the competition for another two weeks. Having the chance to win an 8ft giant Optimus Prime made from scrap metal (and weighing a quarter of a ton) will do that sort of thing.

As someone will be getting a very big surprise in time for Christmas, the winner will be announced in-game on the 15th December 2008.

Trukz.com is the web’s favourite trucking RPG, allowing players to embark on a virtual career as a truck driver or logistics company owner. With tens of thousands of players playing every day, and a whole host of new features being added to the game throughout December including in-game achievements, Australia and an overhauled contract system, exciting times lie ahead for the Trukz community.

So if you want to have a chance to win the most awesome, 8ft robot in the world for warding off burglars, Decepticons or just to scare the bejesus out of everyone who visits your home, join the web’s favourite trucking game, free to play in your browser at Trukz.
