Football Game - Out now!
« on: 14 Feb 2018, 09:54 »
Hi guys!

Our latest game, Football Game, has been released on Steam! It's 20% off for the first week :) Football Game is also available on itch.io!

You can check out the game on Steam here!

Check out the trailer here.

 

A mysterious and atmospheric adventure game from the creators of A Date in the Park, Legend of Hand and Mudlarks.

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

Something is amiss...



Features
- A traditional point and click adventure game aesthetic with puzzles and dialogue interactions familiar to the genre.
- A cast of characters including friends, foes, teachers, and a concerned mother.
- A short, twisted narrative with approximately 45 minutes to an hour of gameplay, depending on the player.
- Original soundtrack by UK duo JUPITER-C, available on cassette April 6th - You can pre-order here!

Inspiration?
Traditional point and click adventure games from the '80s and '90s, the music and films of David Lynch, the uncanny.



Hope you like it :)

Thanks,
Shaun

Thanks Stupot :) The cassette will be available soon, they are just finalising the cover design. Will post here when it's available :) It's pretty exciting that there is going to be an actual physical object associated with one of our games!

Finished playing it, I noticed a typo:

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
In the code door scene, when the guy say the knocking code, one on the "Knock" is misspell as "Kock"

Other than that I'll leave my thoughts about the game on the review section.  ;)

Edit:
Oh and I also bought the soundtrack  8-)

Just wanted to say that I played through this and it's a really unique experience, I went into detail in my Steam review but I can't recommend it enough for fans of David Lynch or the 'melancholic horror' genre in general. It's super creepy without shoving excessive gore in your face, great work Shaun!
