Fantasy football in the mould of a familiar Mario title, Offside Legends approaches line for a Kickstarter campaign.
Another day this week and I’m writing about football titles again, but despite lacking the enthusiasm for the sport and the players, I do love a good football videogame.
The latest addition to the news this week is Offside Legends from Team Serpico (Twitter link) which is going to Kickstarter from the 18th of June.
More of a fantasy-themed party game, Offside Legends takes inspiration from Mario Strikers Charged, and the developer isn’t shy to quote the plumber as the main reference:
Some mechanics are being reinvented and some are being outright created from scratch – but we always keep in mind that the game should be fun, light-hearted and thrilling.Dmitry Minsky, co-founder and developer at Team Serpico
The Kickstarter campaign will use the donations towards the costs related to the production and development of the game.
Other features include:
- Fast-paced, fantasy-themed soccer-party game
- Teams based in fantasy characters such as King Arthur, Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, Alice in Wonderland…
- Inspired by Marion Strikers Charged
- New gameplay mechanics
- Coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC in 2021
An example of what to expect can be seen in the Offside Legends trailer below:
