Trailer, VR & Events

Hi guys,

Yesterday we released this teaser trailer for the game. The meaning with this trailer is to show that football don’t need to be hard if you’re a novice, sure your opponent might score but you can always tackle him to the ground with a feeling of great satisfaction. And even if he scores a crucial goal games are over before you know it (3min). You don’t have to dwell about it, you can just challenge for another game.

We’ve also announced our VR mode which will work on systems which have VR support. We call it “Play as a God” mode. You’re this giant god walking through cities, stopping at stadions and controlling teams with your almighty powers. Sound fun? We hope so. It’s you who control the angle from which you see the game. No other advantages than that. Gameplay is not affected.

We got events coming up.
From now and two weeks on (22nd July – 7th August), the game, in its current Work In Progress form, will be available to play at the Science Museum in London. You’ll be able to play the two player mode and the VR mode. So stop by and try it out if you’re close. It’s £8 for adults.

We’re also heading to Gamescom between the 17th and 21st of August and then to Sensidays, but I’ll create a seperate post about that. Check out Sensidays here. http://sensidays2016.nl/

As always, stay sociable!

In the summertime…

So I’ve just been to France for the European Championships. I was in Nice and I saw Sweden lose to Belgium and go out in the group stage. We (I’m Swedish) really sucked against Ireland, played okay defensively against Italy and showed how we can play against Belgium despite losing 0-1. But really the start of our campaign was so weak we got what we deserved.

Picture and Preview
Before I left for France we released a new picture and linked to a preview of the game from Glasgow.

The image is actually built on Sweden scoring against England in the 1992 championships. And the player right of the keeper is based on a legend in my local club Helsingborgs IF.

“This was the best game I played at the show…. I feel this could be pure gold.” http://www.oneupgaming.co.uk/#!sociable-soccer-preview/syvu8

Mark those words from previewer David Cameron (don’t let the name scare you off). We hope to have similar quotes to thrive on as we go to Gamescom between the 17-21 of August.

So what’s going on at the office in Helsinki?
Jon was there last week and work on the basic game functions continue. There’s gonna be a Player Avatar Career mode where you pick a team and try to get that team to the ranking top. On the way you’ll unlock different goodies that help you out. Besides that we are in a month of sending out builds to publishers. We got some pretty good response and also we got a new mode which is in line with how the current gaming arena is changing right now. Expect an announcement about that soon.

Anything else?
There’s also the final from Glasgow where Declan Mcshane took a fine win to become the youngest winner from our European tour so far.

Expect some new announcements about the game and future events to come soon.
And as always. Stay Sociable
