Following hot on the heels of Dino Dini’s return to the football genre, 16 bit super hero Jon Hare is back with a spiritual successor to the all time classic, Sensible Soccer.
Sociable Soccer will be developed, under Jon Hare’s guidance, by a new team of developers who have previously be involved in creating such as Max Payne, Alan Wake, Super Stardust Delta, and The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land.
The game will include over 500 National, Club and Custom teams with over 10,000 “researched player names”, whatever that means, and everything will be editable. As well as the classic top down view the game will also feature dynamic pitchside cameras, like the ones found in FIFA and PES.
“For years I have been planning the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer,” explained Jon. “Competing with FIFA and PES requires much more than just a remake, it needs a different take on football games altogether, blending the instant playability of yesteryear with the power of modern technology.”
The game will be released on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 around Christmas 2016 and you can back the project and get a copy of the game for as little as £12. The target for the Kickstarter is a very reasonable £300,000.
