I haven’t had much time to post recently, for a variety of reasons including work, a hurricane, and the holidays. Hopefully I’ll be able to correct that in the upcoming weeks.
In the meantime, I felt obligated to post about SportsFriends, a Kickstarter project that aims to bring some of the more popular indie sport-ish games to the market as a real consumer product.
The contents include J.S. Joust, a technology-assisted physical party game, Hokra, a kind of bare bones territory control game, and Super Pole Riders, an extension of Pole Riders by Bennet Foddy, of QWOP fame.
They’re all interesting projects, and whether you consider them sports or not, they’re often talked about in sports-ish terms by game designers, for a range of reasons. It looks like they may not make it, but I suppose you never know.
The kickstarter is available here.
