PLAY EXPO Manchester round up

This year’s last (announced) public screening is over and we got some new pics and a video for you guys. Hundreds of people turned up to play Sociable Soccer on three different formats. In total the show had about 16-17.000 visitors. We brought the latest build to the show and it was playable on PC, IOS and Android (GearVR). Unfortunately we had problems at the opening because of old drivers and some early visitors might have missed the opportunity to play the game – BIG SORRY FOR THAT.

Jon made a speech about his career on the first day and on the second day he played some songs on stage familiar to the fans. I arrived a bit late on the first day because I was in Luxembourg with my family to watch Sweden play. We won 1-0. Happy Happy despite the low score.

People were playing the game and enjoying it and the usual questions “When is the game out?” and “Where can I get this?” flowed over us constantly. The answer is that the game still doesn’t have an official release date. We’ve been saying it should be out Q1 2017 and we want that. But the delay with getting a publisher makes us think the game may be pushed forward. I will announce any changes as soon as we know.

People being sociable!

As usual we also arranged a tournament to finish of the event with. The winner walked away with a signed Jon Hare Cannon Fodder copy for Mega Drive.
