4 FULL-SIZED GAMES IN 1

Zach Gage @helvetica:

• Oh man unrelated, holy cow sportsfriends has an unbelievable amt. of content and then also secrets. It's sort of freaking me out

• Like. It's really 4 fullsized crazy replayable local multiplayer games. I dont think I realized what how crazy that is till I sat down w/ it




Sportsfriends is a collection of multiple games! Not dumb throwaway mini-games, but fully fledged, deeply competitive local multiplayer games.

Sportsfriends includes:

• Johann Sebastian Joust - award-winning face-to-face physical party game
• Super Pole Riders - ridiculous pole vault dueling game by the creator of QWOP
• Hokra - high-velocity, spectator-friendly 2v2 sports game
• BaraBariBall - retro-styled fighting game with a ball

Oh, and there are tons of secrets, including some pretty big ones...

MOVE NOT REQUIRED




Play with DualShock 4 or 3! You do not need a PlayStation Move to play Sportsfriends! We totally love the Move, and it's a perfect fit for J.S. Joust (on both PS3 and PS4), but you can also play J.S. Joust with the DS3 and DS4!

DualShock 4 is especially nice, as we use the LED and the speaker to help signal gameplay animation. You don't need a camera either. No Sportsfriends game makes use of the camera.

SHARE CONTROLLERS!

Don't own so many controllers? No problem! We've made it so you can play Hokra and Super Pole Riders by "sharing" a controller with your teammate or opponent.

When you share a controller, you use one analog stick and the other person uses the other stick.

That means you only need one controller to play Super Pole Riders, and two for Hokra! (Tip: 1v1 Hokra is super fun! Split your brain and control both players on your team.)

BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER THROUGH GAMEPLAY

Our favorite videogame memories involve playing with other people, together, in the same space. Think of Sportsfriends as an occasion to bring people together, both friends and strangers alike.

The Sportsfriends games are deliberately simple - no-frills multiplayer honed down to its raucous essentials. We wanted to make games that were spectator-friendly, accessible, and enjoyable for both hardcore gamers and non-gamers alike. We're really proud of the end result, and think you'll dig it too.
