2017 Steamworks

History : Graduates 2017 Steamworks

2017 – Steamworks

The game was announced January 7th, 2017 to FIRST Robotics Competition teams around the world. Our team huddled around the projector, as we counted down the hours, minutes, and seconds until the game was revealed. And then there was a slight delay.

STEAMWORKSSM is a steampunk-based game in which you team up with two other teams, to form an alliance of three. You go up against another alliance in a race to get your airship steamed up and ready to fly. The game is played by getting little balls into the generator to increase steam pressure in your airship, and giving gears to your airship operator to power up the propellers.
