  • Captain Tsubasa
  • Final Fantasy Tactics
  • Bloodbowl
  • XCOM Enemy Unknown

Imagine the gameplay of Final Fantasy Tactics, mixed with atmospheric elements and action style of Captain Tsubasa, the excitement of figuring out what strategy to use in XCOM, with comedic tones and a thriving system like Bloodbowl; that's Soccer Legends.

What do we believe make Soccer Legends special? Let us break it down for you:

Soccer Legends is comprised of two elements, a classic manager of football with a few RPG elements, and a turn-based strategic game during the match. Similar to other games like XCOM, where resources could handle in a manager mode and then use it in battle mode.

On the field you will have the ability to move players around on the hexigon-based field and make use of over 50 skills to try and score goals. These skills include the obvious and necessary choices like dribble and shoot. You can purchase Strategy cards in the manager mode, to use in the field, which can affect things like a player's strength or an opponent's ability to use certain skills. Weather and crowd mood can also affect games, much like a real-life match.

Soccer Legends puts the fate of the entire club in the hands of the player. You'll be able to manage things like tactics and trades to hopefully keep your club toward the top of the standings. Balancing the payment of wages and fees is key. Bankrupt your club and you'll find yourself at a "game over" screen. Your success will take you to different teams throughout your career, to make real Soccer Legends team.

In the match, each manager will decide his tactics by moving players, using cards, and using more than 50 skills, to dribble, shot or make a catch.

NOTE: Our graphics belong to WIP pre-alpha version, and will be more polished and amazing. We're at 20% of development, please keep this in mind.

Full features include:

  • A TBS of soccer: hexagonal board game. Tactics and strategy will be an essential part of this game. 
  • RPG Components: create and customize players or teams, manage the economy, improve your player’s abilities, design the best team. 
  • Adapt your strategy to the events that can influence in the match, as the moral, the public, the injuries or the weather.
  • Strategic cards: each manager will have a collection of strategic cards that he can use to tip the scale in his favor at the matches.
  • Anime video game: Soccer Legends couples tactical turn-based gameplay with incredible action sequences in a unique style that reminds to the 90's anime series. 
  • +50 different skills to boost your team players.
  • Unique database: each game is different, with different players and teams.
  • Complex AI: able to get in serious trouble. Each player or teams have a unique behavior.
  • No micro-transactions: No in-game realm money purchases. You get the full game! DRM-Free and Steam Key.

Take a look to our expansions in the updates section!

When it comes to the art direction for Soccer Legends, we're inspired by the art from games like Dofus from Ankama Games or Inazuma Eleven from Level 5. Finally, we found our style with other games like Bastion or Old Republic.

We feel that for a game like this (and games in general), art should be a HUGE part of it and will give something a bit more extra special in addition to just "playing the game". We're gamers first, and artists second. So we are shooting for a great visual experience to accompany great gameplay.

We composing our soundtrack inspired in the melody of Captain Tsubasa and the epicness of Final Fantasy Tactics. The results have a unique style of composition. As the production continues, we'll upload more music. Soccer Legends will have a LOT of different abilities to use, and we will need a lot of unique and special sounds. Take a look our Souncloud to listen, press Play and tell us what you think!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

RISKS

This is our first commercial project undertaken by the company, and although we have made other games for mobile or for fun, the team is experienced in the gaming industry, film, entertainment or digital media. But as with any project, we are confident that we will go through some inconvenience.

OUR CHALLENGES AND OUR PLAN TO OVERCOME THEM

The first challenge will be to move all the mechanics of modern soccer to a strategy game, where players perform their actions by turn. Because soccer is continuous, unlike basketball or American football, cut the dynamism is a huge challenge, but poses a profound tactical mode and fed pure strategy.

We have experience on board games design and we'll translate it into the gameplay. We want introduce dynamism with a fast control of each player on the field, able to move along the field or use the extensive skill list, using floating popups that improve the managing of the game, simulating roll-dices and all the mathematic to leave only funny moments.

The game needs a large number of textures, animations, models and effects, so that we have a tough job ahead. Fortunately, our team is compound of experienced people on development flux and we are going to do our best.

Currently we use the UNITY powerful 3D graphics engine, and our team is experienced in it, and thanks to the C # programming language allows incredible freedom to implement and mechanical assets from scratch. Many games today are beginning to bear fruit with this engine and that have previously been published on Steam, as Wasteland 2 or Endless Space.

Sergio is able to design SFX and composing music to the game, but also we'll invest in hire a great composer / sound designer to cover this area and not fail to amaze during the game.

Since January 2013 we are investing our spare time to develop Soccer Legends while still in our full-time jobs. This is a dream project for all fans of strategy or soccer, we want to become true, thanks for your support, and you have surely become reality.

Thank you for visiting and for all the help that you may give us!

FAQ

  • The game will launches with English and Spanish, audio and text. And depending on the funding we'll add support to German, French and Japanese.

  • We're aiming for the game to be as close as possible to the console experience, so we're definitely testing out and making sure all the kinks are ironed in order to have full controller support. We'll be updating all this information as the project goes along.

    Last updated:
  • The closest to DRM Soccer Legends may have would be the use of Steam's service. We don't plan on including any methods of DRM in-game. We'll be looking into having it distributed in other services like GoG (which requires DRM-Free) and Desura too for people who want alternatives to Steam later on.
    We're well aware that DRM never really stops piracy and only hinders people who purchase the game, as well as being a waste of time and money for both parties. So, we'd like to stay away from the annoying methods we often see today like online authentication checks and such as much as possible. Hopefully, with users seeing the passion, effort, and content that is going into the creation of this game, we hope that piracy shouldn't be too much of an issue.
