8bit football game

Hi All,

We are working on an upcoming soccer game called Super Goal Run...

Super Goal Run will be an 8bit, side-scrolling football game for PC, Mac, iOS and Android. It is inspired by the 8bit era of computer games and some famous 8bit-style football games.

( we also have a kickstarter campaign for the game here )

The game it-self will be split into two parts. An RPG-style career sub-game and a first-person action sub-game.

In the career sub-game you will take part in contract negotiations, respond to transfer offers and develop your skill-set through training and challenge mini-games.

In the first-person action sub-game you will play in matches where your aim will be to score as many goals as possible, defend your goal, win the ball back when you lose it and successfully complete tricks.

How well you play in matches will affect your career. In addition how well you plan your career will affect your performances in matches. Things like getting a new contract, being transferred to a better team, winning promotion or silverware all hinge on good choices inside and outside of matches.

We also plan to have a five tier league system in the game world, where you start off as an amateur and work your way up to the top league, before going on to play in continental and world championships for your country of choice.

Don't understand. It's a sport game, but in the trailer, I only see that the character talk, talk,talk... why?

Finally, a retro-looking soccer game. I hope this to turn out good.

This isn't a football game, as such... It's a bunch of mini games with not-so-much-retro graphics.

That'd be my guess.

@Andre - the trailer is a shortened version of the kickstarter video with just the text/explanation part. The kickstarter video is longer and has less talking.

@dzkdes - Thanks. Even if we don't get funded we will continue to work on the concept in our spare time to hopefully get it fully developed one day...

Primoz - yeah the art is 8bit/pixel, not really retro. The game is football though with a match, pitch, defenders and goalkeepers. Have you played New Star Soccer? You spend alot of time reading text and its exciting We will have very little text though.
