We are creating an immersive Pro football experience for OUYA, Android and iOS devices and we need YOUR help to make this game amazing!

Update #4

Here is how Gridiron Thunder has progressed since our last update a few days ago. As we promised, you are about to get an absolutely awesome, over-the-top, crazy fun football game for your OUYA. And when the required period of exclusivity ends, Gridiron Thunder will be available for all Android and iOS devices. And now that final NFL rosters are set and the NFL regular season is about to start, our good friends in the NFL are getting involved. Here is what Dezman Moses of the Kansas City Chiefs just said:

"I'm feeling this new football game @kickstarter. @gridironthunder http://bit.ly/gridironthunder" — Dezman Moses (@DezmanM) September 2, 2013

We have only shown you a very small portion of what Gridiron Thunder is about so far. There is so much more coming!!! We will update you as other elements become ready to unveil. We just might let you play Gridiron Football against some of our NFL players and personalities when we launch our online play!

Update #3

A few days ago, we posted a short video and explained that the foundation of the game was in place and that we would start to clean up the rough edges. Here are some things that show the progress we have made since our last post. We are very proud of our developers and the progress they are making. You are going to get an awesome football game!

Update #2

Here's a short video and some UI elements from where the game was last week. While the visuals are still rough, a significant amount of the groundwork for the game, such as the AI, UI, mechanics, physics, data loading and controls, is already done and in place. While most of this stuff is not visible (as any game developer knows), the key to a great game is a great foundation and this is where we focused our efforts.

During the next few weeks, we will clean up the rough edges that you now see and add local multiplayer, fantasy teams, and online multiplayer.

Update #1

Hey Friends,

Here's a Shout-out from Scott Fujita who is one of our most stalwart friends and supporters.

Many more Shout-Outs and updates about the game to follow.

We are creating a new Indie pro football game called Gridiron Thunder for the OUYA, other Android devices, Apple devices and Facebook, and we need YOUR SUPPORT!

Gridiron Thunder will offer much more than your typical sports game. It will be chock full of fantasy football elements, NFL players’ social media posts, and real-time sports news, scores and stats as well as an unbelievable football experience.

Gridiron Thunder is new and modern.

We are starting with a clean slate and we are incorporating all the fantasy football and social media elements that people have come to love. 

And by using modern game development methods we are developing the game quickly and we will release it this Fall, just in time for the excitement of the NFL season.

  • We are experienced game developers with strong track records of building great games . . .

  • We  work with NFL personalities who know sports . . ..

  • We have license rights to display real-time football news, scores, and stats, including play-by-play...

It's all About The Physics!
It's all About The Physics!

We grew up playing sports games.

And we are now going to build and deliver a killer football game.

And pro basketball and soccer games are next!




The initial release of Gridiron Thunder will be on September 15th, and we will then update the game each week with new features.

We want Gridiron Thunder to be the most immersive football experience out there and that's a tall order. One of the features that we are adding in is fantasy football. This won't be the regular fantasy football that you play with your friends and co-workers. Gridiron Thunder fantasy will allow you to actually play the game with your fantasy roster.

Pit Your Team Against The Best!

Additionally, we don't want you to be in the dark about what's happening in the real world while you're making a name for yourself as the baddest gunslinger in our game. That's why we are going to pipe in real-time news, stats, and scores into the game, so that while you are playing you'll stay up to date with the latest happenings in the football world. To make Gridiron Thunder even more immersive we will have live feeds coming into the game from some of your favorite pro football players' and personalities' social media accounts.

All of these features will be built into and around an eye-catching, easy to play, and extremely fun football experience that you can enjoy with your friends. 

A big factor in deciding what features to add will be hearing about what you guys want to see in Gridiron Thunder. You get to tell us. And we will listen.

It's an Indie game people!  It's about making it crazy fun for you to play.

It's going to be fast-paced and electric, and it will be continually evolving.

We want Gridiron Thunder to be the best football game experience possible.

And because OUYA will give us one dollar for every dollar that we raise on KickStarter, we get to deliver 2X the punch, if you support us.

More money means more action, more stadiums, more features, more polish, and more post-launch support for Gridiron Thunder!

More Money Means More Game For You!

Stretch Goals!

If you guys fund us over $100,000 we will license some sick tunes to go into the game.

If you guys fund us over $150,000 we will add more cheats and unlockable characters into the game.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

If Aliens take over the world and outlaw all fun then we are screwed.

As long as we can avoid that and other apocalyptic disasters (zombies, locusts, Justin Bieber) we'll be good.
