Re: Official 2018 FRC Teaser - FIRST POWER UP

Anyone happen to figure out the font used for the game logo yet? Working on some mock ups for something for our team.

Over to the left it looks almost like a diagram of a field element...

The whole "go into the basement and play an old video game covered with a tarp", even before the digitization, reminded me forcibly of Tron: Legacy. They should have had "Sweet Dreams" playing...

Also, no one's said it that I've noticed so far, but the music in the video sounded distinctly like the Donkey Kong/Mario series to my ear. I really hope we don't have these sounds and songs during the competition - around 1982, a Donkey Kong machine at a science fiction convention was turned up so absurdly loud for the whole weekend that I have never played a Donkey Kong or Mario game. Ever.

The image on the side of the video game cabinet and repeated on the poster that has been called as 2011 LogoMotion (LM11) doesn't really look like LM11 to me, because the ring is elevated about a radius above the polygons, and the rows of pegs in LM11 were about three radii apart. Until I got a good enough look at them to see that the rods extended above the shapes in the poster, I saw a FIRST take on Quidditch hoops. OBTW, I don't really see the rods extending through or above the hoops on the side of the cabinet, so Quidditch is not really out, is it? The game has a noble history going back a couple of centuries, and the games depicted in muggle/nomaj books and movies took place in the 1990s.

The button layout on the cabinet reminds me of Street Fighter...

I mostly looks like a generic "7x5" font, except for the "R". The first font I found with that "R" was the TI Calculator Font -- which has a different "W". I found a few other such fonts, 60's Scoreboard and digit 7x5, but haven't found one which matches both the "W" and the "R" yet.

This. Last year they had gears all over posters. This year its pixels.

Looks like it! Typed in POWER UP for a test and they look similar on a comparison. Thanks!

I'm just over here trying to think of a way an American football game piece could be crowbarred in to fit the theme.

You'll need to add a shadow to get it to look like the game logo, of course!

All I can think of is maybe footballs used as something like pac man power pellets? It's quite the stretch and has no basis on the teaser, however.

If you can't think of anything, search "Game Confirmed" on CD (search posts, not threads) for examples of truly bizarre ways to link things together that are entirely unrelated.

Re: Official 2018 FRC Teaser - FIRST POWER UP

I only ask for one thing:

When we hit the thirty seconds mark for the endgame, the whistle-blow noise is replace with a sound bite of Terry Crews' "POOOOOWWWWWEEEEEEEEEERRRRR".

Please. Someone make this a reality.
