About

For more information on Grudge Match : Street Basketball go to www.IndieSportsNetwork.com

Introducing the first game from Indie Sports Network - Grudge Match : Street Basketball. It’s Rucker Park, The Cage, Dyckman.... It’s street basketball with an attitude. It’s about taking over and building a reputation. Becoming a legend on and off the court.

It will play like an arcade game, but have the depth of hard science and real rewards. It will be easy and fun to play, but impossible to master. It’s demanding crowds; legendary players; one-of-a-kind signature moves; teamwork and individual battles; the triple threat & the pyramid of success. It’s more than just a game; it’s what you make it.

Grudge Match : Street Basketball will include all the resources of the Indie Sports Network, Indie Sports League, Indie Sports Market, and Indie Sports Gym/Lab - all focused on you as the player and co-creator. It's all about shining a spotlight on you and your mastery of street basketball and the competitive edge you develop in the Indie Sports Gym/Lab. 

The difference - play Grudge Match : Street Basketball and you'll develop your own legend on and off the court. Why relive someone else's story when you can build your own? Why play LeBron when you can beat LeBron with the help of your mentors - the great street legends and world renowned experts in the Hard Science of basketball. You'll see things you've never seen before as you gain a competitive edge while developing your "Basketball IQ."

Risks and challenges

As you all know, we’re not making widgets—video games are complex projects. Fortunately, we collectively have more than 50 years of experience in managing them - award-winning, successful games. It's not going to be easy and we're going to need your help as backers and co-creators. We are confident in our ability to provide our backers with a quality game.

The Grudge Match : Street Basketball schedule has been designed to maximize both planning (preproduction) and polishing. This extended preproduction period controls costs and increases quality because we’ll have a very well-defined product before production begins. Our target release date of December 2014 allows us 14 months for production and finalization.

You might wonder how we’ll be able to create Grudge Match : Street Basketball if it receives less funding than stellar titles like Wasteland 2 and Torment. First, the game is being developed using agile/lean development which makes it highly modular and scalable. This approach not only lets us increase game reactivity and replay-ability, but it also lets us keep the game's scope flexible. At our target funding, we’ll be able to deliver a complete and satisfying game and as funding increases above the target, Grudge Match will continue to grow in depth and size.
