2018 FRC Game Hint Released

Last year they had a steampunk band at worlds. Here is what it looks like at Houston this year...

Any Thoughts?


Note: To me it looks like classic sci fi, kind of like Metropolis. The sun behind its head gives an egyptian feel as well.


Edit: Juts a note, early on it had tentacles coming out of it.

Edit 2: Squonk is the name of the band. Here are a few more photos:

Dunno exactly what this might mean for the theme or gameplay, but an interesting observation about having a steampunk band last year. I think a sci-fi theme would be fun.

Re: 2018 FRC Game Hint Released

I think the most confusing part is the SQUONK in the middle of the construction. Like, what?

The statue in the background had tentacles. Squid have tentacles. What could this mean?

Re: 2018 FRC Game Hint Released

I think that this is an interesting observation, but just before finals was probably a bigger clue. Last year, the jazz funk band was all dressed in steampunk garb. This year, the same band was dressed as mad scientists with lab coats and frazzled hair wigs in pink and light blue.

The band playing at Einstein being scientist themes strikes me as more likely, haha. 2018 science lab theme confirmed
