Stickdown!

News


Our studio has been working hard at creating an accurate representation of the on-field action seen during Botaoshi. Above is the first teaser trailer for its localized name, Stickdown! Which we are happy to announce is also now available on Steam to wishlist.

We are hoping to make a very competitive niche sports game with as many different modes of play as possible. ranging from the standard ”career” or “campaign” in which players will travel around Japan (and ultimately, the world) competing for a title. And of course multiplayer where you control teams as the captain or play as individuals in an all out mess of a match. We think a zombie mode would be fun as well! Matches may be defensive only, some offensive, some both.

The screen will be adjustable in that last case so you can monitor your defensive and offensive teams (in the event they are both on the field). Defense-only games will come down to the stats of your captain and how you allocate men. This means you can shift them around the pole for better coverage in vulnerable places. Kick with the man on the pole etc. Squad unity plays a part in how long it can take for opposing team to “break through”.



Both sides can trigger a sort of “rage mode” which we can’t wait to show, it’s very dramatic! If you notice, in a lot of cases the initial surge of attackers have a very important role of infiltration and intimidation. If this is not done early it is the attackers job to regroup and so on. More info and screenshots coming soon.

Injuries can happen and the roster is divided by squads to make things easier to manage.

Thank you all for your interest!
