I grew up in a city the place some individuals hated the color inexperienced, as a result of they supported Rangers FC and inexperienced was related to their rivals, Celtic FC. They might smash inexperienced site visitors lights, inexperienced road cupboards, inexperienced store indicators…
I’m wondering what their response can be to Soccer Story, an “journey RPG” about enjoying football-ish sports activities in a lush, inexperienced, virtually Pokémon-like world.
Here is the announcement trailer. Strive to not smash your displays, Rangers followers:
“It has been a yr since The Calamity™ tore aside the very foundations of soccer as we all know it, and since then, Soccer Inc. has made dang nicely positive that not a soul has been allowed to even have a look at a soccer ball, not to mention kick it,” says the blurb on the official web site. Enter you, who has been chosen by “a magical soccer ball” to remind everybody why soccer is nice.
Banned or not, the trailer above reveals the protagonist enjoying in what appear like soccer matches, with tackles and photographs and all the pieces. It additionally reveals wave protection battles fought with a soccer, aiming mini-games, chatting with ghosts, turn-based fight, and loads else.
I like video games which take a sport and use it because the central mechanic for a special style of sport. The most well-liked current instance of that’s Golf Story on Change, whose builders are actually engaged on a extra expansive followup known as Sports activities Story. Soccer Story is unrelated to these video games and is developed by Not Tonight creators PanicBarn.
There isn’t any launch date for Soccer Story but, however you possibly can join a PC beta which is “coming very quickly”, and discover extra screenshots over on Steam.
