The man behind Sensible World of Soccer returns with a new take on the arcade football game genre.
As well as SWoS Jon Hare was also behind Micropose Soccer, and his team at Finnish Studio Combo Breaker are bringing this seminal follow up to life. The game features over 1,000 club and international teams and gives them 67 trophies to kick balls into nets for. They’ll be full of players with names, close to what the real players are called, but, y’know, they wont be. The gameplay is reminiscent of the games of yesteryear with a fast pace and simple controls.
Currently the game’s due out on Steam, with the help from the Early Access community being put to use to ensure the game is ready to be launched on consoles, mobiles and later, VR systems.
Nick is an avid video game entusiast and has been since his mum first allowed him to play on the Atari 2600 she never touched. To this day he's had the pleasure of playing on a vast array of different gaming machines.
He's a recovering WoW-holic and when he's not playing games he's talking about games, reading about games, writing about games, watching videos about games, watching his son play games or chatting rubbish on Twitter.
A lover, not a fighter and an all round good guy (he would say that, he wrote this after all), he's happy to be here as part of GIAG.
