About this project

First Presentation video (THE GAME)

Gameplay video (Basic Rules, easy and fast game for everyone!):

Gameplay video (Pro Rules! Beware! Hardcore gamers only! ;)) :

Here are the game boxes you can get. See a full list of available rewards further down:

The heavy boxes (5-10 kg / 11-22 lbs) will be sent from Germany! So right up front we have a special stretchgoal for the US backers: if we get 200 backers from the US you save $20, with 500 US backers you save $30 because we can take advantage of bulk shipping rates and send a container from Hamburg to Raleigh. Please send us an email if you are pledging from the United States and we will keep a running total of US Backers. When we reach our goal, we will contact you and let you either add more items to your order or you can change your pledge amount. If we do not reach our goal and you must cancel your pledge due to the shipping costs, we will understand. We hope to have more moderate shipping costs to the US in the future.

Hi to all you gamers out there!

18 years ago my brother and I formed the IDEENSCHMIEDE Paul&Paul (short "IPP").
We create illustrations for boardgames and computer games and we produce comics. www.ipp-world.com
Since we are hardcore gamers, we wanted to invent our own games. Now after 8 years of intense work, here is....

KiCKeT!

What does the media say about the game?

"...No matter whether it’s Tipp-Kick for the kitchen table, table football in the local bar, or Fifa 13 for Playstation: all the popular football simulations have one thing in common – they are played with hands, not feet. A creative brain from Neu-Bottenbroich wants to change all that. With a revolutionary invention he wants to put the football playing world back on its feet: KiCKeT..." (original German article by Joachim Roehrig)

"Action-Strategie für Gartenkicker [...]
...Die Jungs basteln schon seit einigen Jahren an ihrem großen Traum, die ultimative Fussballsimulation zu kreieren. [...] Bei KiCKeT! treffen also Tipp-Kick, FIFA 13, Bundesliga-Manager und echtes Ballgefühl aufeinander." (Libero Doc Abstracto für Tric Trac)

THE GAME

It is a turn based game where you have time to think like a coach about the movement of your figures and can play the ball with your foot like a player on the field. It is like an oversize tabletop soccer game, but with shooting and passing like in real soccer!

You push the figures with the tip of your foot over the ground to make them "run" to a position you like.

With my first action I send one of my figures forward...
With my first action I send one of my figures forward...
...with my second action I could pass the ball, but since the way is clear I rather take the long shot at the goal.
...with my second action I could pass the ball, but since the way is clear I rather take the long shot at the goal.

On one side we wanted to make KiCKeT! an intuitive experience for casual gamers, who just want to kick the ball while having a party...

...and on the other side we wanted this game to be the best soccer simulation ever. So if you like, you can play KiCKeT! very fast and easy or use our pro rules (real soccer) and become a soccer expert! You can play it with as many figures and friends as you like, and even give your figures individual talents like "ball control", "sprint", "passing" and more.

Saturday the 23rd of February we beta tested the game in the public again with improved rules.

Risks and challenges

Since we are producing this game mainly in Germany, we would like to apologize in advance for the high shipping costs. As the game is made out of wood, even a basic set weighs close to 12 pounds. Luckily, we are able to keep the overall size of the box to a minimum due to our telescoping goals.
One of our challenges will be to move from producing prototype sets to producing custom game sets for all of our customers. The game has a lot of parts and accessories, but we did not want to give the various pieces to different producers due to past bad experiences and the logistics with getting everything back in time to ship out. We are confident that the experience we have gained while producing the prototypes has given us the know how to produce sets faster and more effectively.

The heavy boxes (5-10 kg / 11-22 lbs) will be sent from Germany!
So right up front we have a special stretchgoal for the US backers: if we get 300 backers from the US you save $15, with 1000 US backers you save $25 because we can take advantage of bulk shipping rates and send a container from Hamburg to Raleigh.
Please send us an email if you are pledging from the United States and we will keep a running total of US Backers. When we reach our goal, we will contact you and let you either add more items to your order or you can change your pledge amount. If we do not reach our goal and you must cancel your pledge due to the shipping costs, we will understand.
We hope to have more moderate shipping costs to the US in the future.
