About this project
3D MVP Lacrosse is a new 3D lacrosse game we're developing for iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices.
Its core gameplay puts you and a teammate against two defenders and a goalie in a series of quick single-player matches.
You can jump in to play a Pick-Up Match or create a player in Career Mode and compete for titles and trophies. Between matches you'll spend your winnings on new moves and stat-enhancing equipment, and play unique training challenges to improve skills like your endurance and accuracy. The game's controls are easy to use and are designed for mobile and tablet gameplay, with built-in support for game controllers.
We've been making some good progress but there's still a lot to be done, and we won't be able to finance the entire game on our own...
We have the skills to make this game, but completely self-funding it is too big a risk for a small studio like ours, which is why we came to Kickstarter. Your investment reduces our risk dramatically, and allows us to focus on creating something really fun that rewards everyone who pitched in to make it happen. Talk about teamwork!
But we only have 30 DAYS TO REACH OUR GOAL, or it won't happen!
So if you'd like to see this game, please help us with our campaign and tell your friends before time runs out!
If you love lacrosse and videogames, we want to make this game for you!
We think lacrosse is an amazing sport that still hasn't come close to reaching its full potential in videogames. With help from people like you, we're going to build a great game that brings all the fun and energy of real life lacrosse straight to your phones and mobile devices.
A success with this campaign is an instant win-win, because we get to make this game and you get to play it – but beyond that, it will prove that there is indeed a market, and provide us with the foundation for our next project: a full 10-on-10 lacrosse game based on the gameplay we're creating here.
To help us get there, please contribute, and then share this page with your teammates, coaches, friends and family, come find us on Facebook, tweet, blog and do whatever you can to get the word out about our campaign. We really appreciate it!
We've already got players and gamers of all ages on board to help us capture the thrill and excitement of real life lacrosse - and we can't wait to hear from you too!

We are Digital Steamworks
Digital Steamworks is a Maryland-based videogame company founded in 2003 by former teammates and game industry veterans from Atari, Hasbro and MicroProse.
We're a tight group of enthusiastic professionals who've been creating games together for over a decade, and as individuals for many years before that. As a collection of lacrosse fans and players from Maryland and Long Island, we've wanted to do a lacrosse game for years, but the idea hasn't gotten much traction with big name publishers due to supposed lack of market interest. So we thought we'd bring our project directly to the people.
We need your support to make this happen.
November - KICKSTARTED! Full development is underway, with core game components getting built as design details are hammered out.
February - ALPHA: By the Alpha build we'll have fully playable matches with animated and AI-driven teammates, defenders and goalies. Some challenges will be working and most systems will be in place to allow for a single playable path through the entire game.
April - BETA: When we hit Beta, every aspect of the game will be playable but bugs will still be present. The game will need polish and tuning, but all of its parts should be built and working together.
May - MASTER This is the finished 1.0 game that we'll submit to the App and Play Stores in May. It is a refined version of the Beta build, with all of its bad bugs squashed and needs addressed. It's looking good and ready to ship!
All contributors will receive their free download information prior to the launch date for their designated platform so they can be the first to check it out! Woohoo! Thanks for helping to make this happen!

Risks and challenges
Making a quality game is no small task, but we've all worked together for many years and are good at what we do. We use smart development practices, build with trusted technologies, and already have a good head start on this game. Over the years we've learned to avoid common mistakes, and while surprises can still happen, we solve problems as a team and have yet to let any obstacles stop us from reaching a project's goals. If this campaign gets funded, we know we're going to make a great lacrosse game that lacrosse fans and gamers are really going to enjoy.
Beyond fun, to be a real success in our eyes, this game needs to *feel* like lacrosse. So we're enlisting lacrosse players and gamers from middle school up to the pros in order to help make sure we really nail it. We'll also be working with teams of beta testers, fans and people like you that are interested in helping us get it right!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
