[ RELEASED ] Football Game - OUT NOW
« on: 12 Apr 2017, 13:35 »
Hey guys,

Football Game is out now! Check out the AGS forum page here.

 

What's the story?

East Bend, Purchase County. 1987.
You are Tommy. A local high school footballing hero, the town of East Bend is your playground.
It's game night for the Purchase County Turbines and your sweetheart is waiting in the bleachers.
Join Tommy for a night that you won't forget. Something is amiss...

What are the features?

- An old school point and click adventure game aesthetic, with the puzzles and dialog interactions familiar to the genre
- A cast of odd characters, including friends, foes, teachers, and an unbalanced mother
- A twisted experimental narrative, with approximately 40 minutes to an hour of gameplay, depending on the player
- Original soundtrack by Jupiter-C (These guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JedkB5-VV6M)

 

Inspiration?

Old school point and click adventures from the 1980s, 1980s American culture, the music and films of David Lynch

Check out the trailer for Football Game on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/_G0tSe6ARbE

Thanks!
Shaun

Anything with an inspiration from Mr. Lynch, especially in your capable hands, must be awesome!

Oh, this looks tantalising! The graphical style reminds me of 'another world'. Very nice :)

I like what I see so far! And that title is totally misleading :-D

I love strong Americana themes in video games. You've got my vote on Steam! There's something about a protagonist in a varsity jacket. You know it's gonna be interesting.

Stoked to hear the work of the band you got to do the soundtrack. I'm a big soundtrack guy, and I really enjoy when traditional songwriters tackle video game soundtracks. I was huge, HUGE fan of Jim Guthrie's work on Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. And to see that evolve into his work on Planet Coaster was something else, though I guess that soundtrack was actually a collaboration with somebody named JJ Ipsen.

Thanks so much for those nice comments and Greenlight votes :)

We've been working hard on Football Game and it's almost finished! If anyone would like to help me with testing (the game is around 40 mins to and hour in length) please let me know, it would be hugely appreciated! Hoping to release around Valentines day.

The game has come along way, new screenshots and a new trailer will be up soon :)

Nice game. Maybe there is room in the future for deluxe version with voices?
