A new title designed and directed by Jon Hare, Sociable Soccer, has arrived on Kickstarter, aiming to obtain £300,000 in funding. Jon Hare stated, “A community of approximately 20 million fans worldwide have played the soccer games I have designed. I’m thrilled to return to the genre and look forward to delivering a game which once again raises the bar (for) the soccer videogames.”
Sociable Soccer will feature arcade-style soccer games with online multiplayer, customizable player avatars, and clan-based online leagues. Featuring over 500 National, Club, and Custom teams with more than 10,000 named players, gamers will be able to play online whenever they want in an endless series of matches.
“For years I have been planning the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer. Competing with FIFA and Pro Evo 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,” said Hare.
Set to release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in late 2016, those who contribute will be able to obtain an exclusive early access beta for the PC, name in credits, and even the chance to jump into a Finnish ice lake with Jon Hare and the Sociable Soccer team.
