Game Description

Black Monday is a fast Arena Brawler for three to four players on a local screen. The focus is on action, timing and tactical Decision making. Over multiple rounds the question is: Who is be a millionaire.

In every round the players set their bets on another player or on themselves. In the arena they have to react quickly and take the right tactical move in order to manipulate the outcome of their own bet.


“Black Monday takes place in a far future, four concerns own the global economy. Entertainment and work are complete fused and as a result the Stakeholder Arenas were made on concerns rooftops. Large companies invest millions in the comerz-sport, while the gladiators fight over every electronic coin with bombs and modern technology. Can there be any cooperation in this world?”

Heartbeat from Black Monday


Since our last post we have been very busy working on our bachelor project Black Monday. We had to write a documentation and wanted to post every now and then about our progress, but you know how things can go... messy :) There was just too much to do, game design & writing the bachelor thesis / documentation aaaand having a life next to it.

But hey here we are: Black Monday

Black Monday is a collaborative bet and arena brawler. The players set bets on them self or their fellow players. They manipulate the outcome of their bet in an awesome arena battle. Even through losing the battle they can win the game and earn the most money to be the millionaire.
