Sociable Soccer

Hey, this is looking great! I'm a huge footy/soccer fan here in the U.S. and I've probably purchased way too many games... but there's always room for one more!

Anyway, I have a couple questions too. This one obviously looks like there will be plenty of arcade action, but will there also be the ability to act as manager and just watch the matches play out (kind of like Soccer Player Manager 2016)? Also, will U.S.'s MLS be one of the leagues in the game?

Thanks!

Yes!

It should run @60 fps on my 6s Plus, too.

I am dying for a proper (not extremaly complicated) soccer sim which it is not Sega's.

Just a plain old fun with the right ammount of depth and not so much micromanagement.

Thank you for for your interest!

The original Sensible World of Soccer allowed you to let the computer play a match for you in "manager mode", so it should be possible over here as well. However, our manager features will be somewhat more limited in the first release. Ideally you'll be able to drop in and out of manager mode any time even during a match.

I *think* the MLS is in the game, but I'll confirm that later.

It runs @60 fps even on an iPhone 5, obviously not at the highest quality but fully playable with MFi, dual-touch screen controls and the wtf-I-can't-believe-this-works single touch mode.

Where do you think we traditionally picked our beta testers from at Mountain Sheep?

We'll let you know if we get around to running a public beta, but first we have to nail the publisher down. Meanwhile, we've been showing the game in playable form in a lot of places, even had several tournaments in game conferences. This week it's playable at Gamescom, in Cologne.

Glad my post made this thread bang, I'm really looking forward to this despite the fact Sunday almost made me give up football haha. Also great to see the developer here, if you're ever in England/London I'd love to preview this! Best of luck!
