Football Drama: new trailer, inching closer to beta

We just published a new Football Drama trailer on Steam and Youtube.

In the last few months, we have improved Football Drama along several dimensions:

– Mechanics: The card element of the gameplay has been clarified and “card explanations” are always available. The “why” of success and failure of actions during matches is always available (as a big circle in the field) for more “technical” players, so adapting to more diverse styles of gameplay.

– Dialogues: More elements of the gameplay have become dialogues and hence have been expanded, like the “handshakegate” section and the press meetings. For all dialogues, we developed a set of tools for their direction (see this post: ) so that we added balloon styles, comic-styled layouts and even animations (see the I-Ching dialogue series).

– Matches: all parts of the matches have been improved with more animations and feedback. Goals have spectacular animations associated, cards rotate showing explanations… .

– Plot: the central part of the plot has been created, with several new dialogues and circumstances. All the plotting for and against the Thiefa League president (Septic Splatter) is in place.

What is missing is the bridge between the central part of the plot (around weeks 8-12 of the championship) and all the possible endings, some of which are ready and some not. Also we want to refine the opponent’ manager AI and personality, and make the recurring stages (like press meeting) less repetitive in contents. This is the last effort towards the game reaching beta stage which is hence quite close.

So add Football Drama to your Steam wishlist or subscribe to the release mail!
