DefyU is a free-to-play fantasy football game that adds gaming and social elements, featuring addictive mini-games, a mysterious roulette, and destructive boosters. Altogether taking you through a fully immersive and interactive journey like never before. 

Navigate through DefyU’s kingdom and explore the different regions of the world, all of which promise glory and demise. While fantasy sports strategy lies at the heart of this adventure, adrenaline and betrayal are also part of the challenge. Choose your allies well, and keep a close eye on your so-called friends. If you fail, your ego will be shattered to pieces, if you succeed, you will have made a name for yourself where countless others have failed to do so.

DefyU is being built for Android and iOS. At your fingertips will be some of the greatest leagues, such as LaLigaPremier League and Champions League with access to some of the world's best players such as Messi, Cristiano, and Neymar.  

Not a football/soccer fan? Don't worry we plan to incorporate a variety of sports down the road such as NFL, NBA and Cricket. 

What are you waiting for? Join our 100K strong community to keep up with latest football news, funny memes and the latest happenings with DefyU. 

 

 

“The social game that crosses reality and fictionCNN

 1. Join the first free to play fantasy game with daily and season long contests that offers prizes and experiences. 

2. Build your squad by selecting the 11 professional football stars you think will perform bestDefyU's algorithm, converts micro-moments such as an assist or goal into real-time points, earning you points based on the real-life performance of the football stars you selected. 

3. The fun doesn't end after you create your team like it does in every other fantasy sports game. We believe the fun only begins after you create your team. Train your players during the week by winning mini-games, spinning the mysterious roulette, and ultimately getting your hands on boosters that increase your chances of winning your fantasy league. 

 

 

 

MINI-GAMES.Your destiny is in your hands, winning the mini-games supply you with boosters that may be applied to your fantasy league players. Think of it as training your team to improve your chances of winning the league. We’ve revamped classic mythical games and gave them a football touch. In addition to revamping classics, we've developed some of our very own unique and highly addictive mini-games. 

 

MYSTERY ROULETTE. Up for an unpredictable adventure? You will have a chance at spinning the mystery roulette and earning a booster, once every 24 hours.

BOOSTERS. What to do with the boosters you earn through mini-games and the mysterious roulette? Betray your league mates by launching "attack" boosters in their direction, weakening their chances of winning the league. The vicious "bomb " booster for instance, red cards one of the 11 squad members belonging to your league mate. The "thief" booster, steals money from one your league mate's budget. Watch your back and get your hands on immunity boosters such as the "shield" booster which blocks your "supposed" friends from attacking you. Not all boosters are destructive, some increase your spending salary and others allow special moves. Boosters may be used within private leagues formed by you and your friends.

PRIZES & EXPERIENCES. Top the leaderboard and get your hands on awesome prizes and experiences such as a PS4, an iPhone X, or a meet and greet with a professional athlete. Prizes and experiences are given in DefyU leagues, not private leagues.

NEWSFEED. One of your players scored a goal? You believe it was an unfair yellow card? You won your league? Imagine a feed where you and your friends post freely all day long on all things football related.

CHAT. You no longer have to use a third party communication tool to keep up with your league mates. DefyU's in-app chat is the ultimate channel for trash talking with your league mates.

ADVANCED STATISTICS. DefyU has integrated advanced statistics on real-time of teams and players, all of which we believe to be an essential part of building your ultimate squad.

 

 

We hope the 34059392 man hours that have gone into uniquely designing and producing each and every reward are to your liking!

Want to add additional items to your pack? Not to worry, you don't need to buy multiple packs. You can add items by simply "managing your pledge" and increasing the amount by the add on price of the item below. We’re handling add-ons through BackerKit, so all you need to do is add up the total cost of the add-ons you want and increase your pledge amount by that much. Shortly after the campaign ends, we will send out a BackerKit survey and you’ll be able to tell us which add-ons you want on there, along with your shipping info.

 

  

 

A game without its players is dust. Early on, we learned the importance of building a community. We have spent the last 10 months creating editorial football content related to the latest happenings, funny memes, and DefyU game content. Join our community and never miss a beat!

It all began during Roman's first week of work at BlackRock in New York City, when he decided to start playing daily fantasy sports in order to make friends with his new co-workers. Just like your typical sports junkie, he  would spend hours creating the "ultimate" roster every single week, with the objective of winning money. Roman did not quite understand how the main incentive of the game was to win money, when in reality, every single one of his co-workers was losing money, including himself.

At the same time, he realized that the main element that kept him and his co-workers engaged was the social aspect, the interaction. It was that very moment when Roman quit his job, recruited his tribe and set fourth the mission to finally make fantasy sports fun, interactive and rewarding.

 

 

Up until now, we have been operating with a very limited budget, surviving off of personal savings. To be able to finish DefyU in a reasonable amount of time and survive the costs that come with it, we have decided to ask you, our backers, for help. We’ve set a target goal of $10K that will help us finalize the last bits of the development and allow us to release the game in time. The more money we raise, the smoother the ride. This means more things that we could include, and a better, more polished final product. Any additional money raised will go towards development.

 

 

DefyU is being developed by DefyU Technologies. We're a young, energetic, 11-person international team driven by our passion for video games and sports. We've accumulated countless hours of playtime in games such as FIFA, Civilaztion, Final Fantasy, Football Manager, and many others. Having been part of the community as players as well as content creators, we feel we’re in a unique position to use this experience to further evolve the sports gaming experience. 

 

Risks and challenges

With game development, delay is always a possibility. However we’ve been at it for the last year, and the funds raised will allow us to accelerate development.
