Announcing: Touch Football (aka Touch Soccer)

Hi Toucharcaders

I am happy to exclusiely announce the details of our next game, Touch Football - to be know as Touch Soccer in some territories.

It is a gesture based 1st person 5-a-side Football (Soccer) game, where the player flicks a ball around the pitch and uses swipeing or the accelerometer to run.

We are still working on nailing down the full spec, but we have got far enough with game to give you a video preview. Please be aware that this is work in progress - but we are happy to say that flicking the ball into the top corner, or in of the post is as satisfying as we hoped!

There's a better quality video here: http://www.apptheater.com/video/1118/Touch-Football

Otherwise here's the YouTube version ...

Cheers

Morgan

About the name: Freeverse has been releasing a series of sports games under the general title of Flick Sports (Flick Fishing, Flick Bowling, Flick NBA etc.) for a while now. I doubt that they can claim trademark on the word "flick," but you may want to find a different name to avoid confusion.

Looks like a cool game, by the way.
