NEXT Robotics 2021 – OUTAGE!

Designed by alumni of the Mighty Mechanical Mustangs, who were the winners of the ROBOTICON Digital 2020 NEXT Game Design Challenge, the new game by alumni for alumni was demoed during ROBOTICON 2021 during the Alumni Day at AMRoC Fab Lab on October 16.

Here’s how Outage works:

Played on a 12×24 ft. field, in OUTAGE, two alliances will compete to power their battery. Each alliance will consist of two teams that will work together to collect and shoot volts to charge their battery. Teams will be able to increase the charging rate by taking possession of the boost plate in the center of the field. At the end of the match, teams will be able to climb the boost bar resulting in additional power.”  

But it’s still the Time of COVID and everyone has met with challenges, including our intrepid M3 alum.  So we’re doing a Outage Demo Day this year, and then will plan for a full game play experience in 2022.

Sign up for our Alumni Day at the link below, for an opportunity to drive around a partial Outage field, then spend the rest of the day enjoying an Alumni Social, with board and video game, food and refreshsments, and HADO AR game play all day long!
