What is the current state of the game?
Calling the game a Beta is being very generous. There is still tons of work to do and it is arguably closer to being an Alpha. However, without focusing too much on terminology, this just means there will be tons of cool updates in the future.
Oh, and expect some bugs…
Where can I play the game?
The Beta can be found at https://playfield.io/superbloodhockey
. Using Playfield I can automatically distribute updates, hotfixes, bug fixes, etc. to everyone, without having to send tons of emails.
What do you have planned for the game?
I have the following planned*:
- Individual player names, stats, bio’s, performance. E.g. a pool of unique players
- Different performance attributes, abilities, and such for different sized players (skinny, average, large)
- Career Mode: Create and manage your own custom team, and follow their progress throughout multiple seasons and tournaments.
- Multiplayer: Online mulitplayer, take your custom team online and play others.
- Full suite of Stats, for both players and teams.
- Instant replays
- More Teams, rinks, and other stuff
- Plus your ideas! You should tell me what you want to see in the game!
*Not limited to, nor guaranteed (because plans change sometimes).
Will this game be free or cost money?
The game is free for now, but once it reaches a state of sufficient quality and enough features are present, it will eventually cost some money. Probably not too much though…
Can I stream the game / make youtube / Let’s play videos?
Yes, but all I ask is that you put in the title or video description somewhere indicating it is in “beta”, or even the build version if you want to get fancy. Oh, and you can monetize them too.
What can I do to help development of the game?
The best thing you can do for me is leave quality, useful feedback here: Official Super Blood Hockey Subreddit
I am not doing any pre-ordering stuff as of now, so hold on to your money for now. Tell a friend instead.
What controllers work with the game?
- Anything that is X-input compatible, e.g. Xbox 360 controller.
- Also, many controllers can emulate x-input: http://www.x360ce.com/
- I am not sure if the Steam controller works or not, I suppose it should, but I don’t have one.. So one of you will have to tell me.
- I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING A CONTROLLER
The game won't start, what do?
- Please ensure you have the XNA Runtime library installed:
- Please ensure you have .NET installed:
