Re: 2012 Game?

Two goals - one on each alliance wall. Four loading stations - one in each corner. Three zones, horizontally across the field (blue side, middle, red side). Two robots in each zone - one red, one blue. Multiple smallish scoring objects - amount and size don't really matter, as long as there are lots and they're no bigger than a basketball and no smaller than a marble.

Once the game begins, the robots cannot go outside their zones. The scoring objects must go from the loading stations to the goals on the opposite side of the field, and each robot on the alliance must touch the scoring object for it to count.

Human players' roles similar to Aim High - they capture the scored objects and reintroduce them to the field through the loading stations.

Some of these ideas are eerily similar to the challenge I just gave my Introduction to Robotics class this morning... (This is a Mindstorms/Tetrix-based class).

Re: 2012 Game?

The olympics has sycnronized swimming. Obviously this will be what the GDC will replicate for the 2012 game. Water/synchronized game, anyone?

Re: 2012 Game?

Sounds cool and I like the idea, but in my opinion I don't believe GDC will create a water game.

is a post on Bill's Blog which leads to a Youtube video showing off a few of our parts. The kicker is that he misspells "peek" as "peak". Should we be concerned with this? or is this a typo?

"Peak" hinting at an incline of some sort and the "curtain" hinting at a relation to the video game called Portal "According to the Aperture Science Web site, Cave Johnson founded the company in 1953 for the sole purpose of making shower curtains for the U.S. military" (wikipedia.com) maybe some sort of shooting game like the 2006 game Aim High.

Re: 2012 Game?

I believe it will be a shooter game like 2006 except instead of a basketball type game, I think that it will be a football type game.

I say hockey with curling as the end game. I've heard that there were references to "heavy game pieces" in Bill's Blog. I assumed football at first, but I think hockey is a more viable option.

Re: 2012 Game?

Angry Robots.
Big Robots toss minibots at a wall to topple onto goals for points.
Bonus points if minibots make cute funny sounds.
