About

Luna League Soccer is an over-the-top soccer/football game that takes inspiration from old arcade classics such as Nintendo World Cup (NES) and Mario Strikers (Gamecube). This game follows the basic rules of Soccer, but adds crazy power ups and magic attacks to the mix. 

Luna League Soccer will be developed for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and PC/RT (Windows 8). If we manage to get successfully funded we have stretch goals in place that will add Steam (PC/MAC/LINUX) and consoles as target platforms. 


Luna League Soccer is a challenging arcade game that takes you to a galaxy far, far away. You play as one of 12 rivalling factions that are fighting for world domination using the game of soccer as a means to overcome political stand-offs and military conflict.

In the center of a galaxy far, far away lies a mythical planet named Luna, which is named after its two orbiting moons. The planet is ruled by 12 great tribes, each with their own unique powers and skill

Unlike other civilizations, these factions refrain from war to settle their differences. Instead they wait… Every two years when Luna’s two moons are aligned a magical whistle blows.

This is the start of an epic soccer tournament and the winning faction will dictate the planet’s course until the next championship!

Are you ready to score?

  • The Ice Barbarians live in the north
  • High up in the mountains the Monks reside
  • Sand people wander through the desert
  • An intricate system of subsurface tunnels houses the Mole people
  • Upper-class cities are ruled by the Steam Punkers
  • City Raiders have taken hold of the city’s dark alleys
  • An organised band of young homeless children, known as the Lost Boys have united across the globe
  • The wild seas have been conquered by the mighty Mariners
  • Luna’s outstretched forests listens to the Jungle Monkeys
  • Manic miners use gigantic remote controlled robots
  • Necromancers are everywhere and master dark powers
  • The Uknown are slowly but surely increasing their grip on the planet

The game is relatively easy to play and has a lot of tactical depth. We forced ourselves to give the user a simple, intuitive control system. On smartphones players can choose between analog controls or motion controls and we will also add controller support. On PC it is possible to play with keyboard or a controller. 

The core gameplay mechanics are based on real-world soccer rules, but the over-the-top moves and magical attacks give Luna League Soccer that nice arcadey feel. Think Mario Kart and you will have an idea on what we are trying to accomplish here.

Below you can find some early gameplay captures that will give you an idea on how the game will play.

HERO UNITS & SUPERGOALS
Each team has a leader / hero unit. This unit is more powerful than the other players and has special abilities that can help a faction to get ahead. When a character is magically charged (by successfully passing the ball to team members you will charge your magic ability), you can make a supergoal. These over-the-top attacks have been inspired by the Super Shots from Nintendo World Cup and the power-ups from Mario Strikers/Mario Kart.

PENALTY SHOOTOUT
If a match ends in a draw, there is a special penalty shootout in which players need to both defend their goal as well as take penalties to force a decision. Players select a corner by simply swiping the ball in that direction. The same goes for the keeper if you are defending. Time your kick properly and you may score a supergoal. Penalty Shootout will also be playable outside the main game as a separate game mode.

FIELD CHARACTERISTICS AND SPECIAL BALLS
Each faction has its own "home" playing field. These soccer arenas have hazardous or environmental properties that make the game extra challenging. Winds at the Mountain Temple field will influence the ball's direction, while the slippery Frozen Fields will make sprinting and passing more difficult. Inside the mines players can play matches on the Pyrite Pitch, but they should beware of big rolling boulders.

A wide range of special balls can be unlocked (no not the salty type), each having special powers:

  • FIREBALL: Egocentric players will disintegrate
  • BOMB BALL: This ball is kinda explosive
  • BEACH BALL: Nice, light and bouncy
  • BOWLING BALL: Fast, but heavy
  • WEIGHT BALL: Even heavier then the bowling ball, will topple other players
  • BIG BALL: Huge ball that makes scoring goals more difficult

STRATEGY

Players will earn points by winning matches. Once enough points have been gathered a team can level-up, which greatly improves the players' skill and ability. Before and during each match, players can set the formation to match offensive or defensive tactics.

Please help us with our project by either backing it with your hard-earned cash or by sharing the project amongst your friends.

If this Kickstarter's top tier rewards are successfully backed, an additional team will be created. This tribe will be based on the top three backer's appearance and personality. This special team will be exclusively playable by everyone who has backed the EARLY BIRD REWARDS or pledged €200 or above.

Risks and challenges

Drawing on our years of experience in game development and project management, we've assessed all the design and development tasks before launching the Kickstarter to make sure we are:

• Setting realistic and achievable goal values that will allow us to complete the base development tasks before working on "nice to have" and/or ambitious features.

• Reducing estimated costs and budgetary needs as much as possible to increase the value of your backer investment

• As clear and transparent about our intentions so you can be confident in the project from the get-go

You can read more about how we intend to spread the funds raised through Kickstarter.
