The Manual

The full-color manual is available for those looking for additional tips and tricks!

Origin Story

Inspired by rolling and throwing in Super Smash Brothers, Judo captures the spirit of sports games from the early days of video games with modern game mechanics. The game features tight 1-on-1 fighting, but it's also a great 4-player party game. We were inspired by the positive reception at PAX Prime this past year, and we're excited to bring you along for the ride!

Previous Experience

While this is our first digital game Kickstarter, we've had multiple successful Kickstarter projects in the past couple of years. We've both worked on a number of digital games professionally; since founding Laboratory we've develop a few games on our own:

The Strongest is the best toilet game in existence. You punch things, and it's incredibly fun.

Province is a two player euro-style board game you can play in 10-20 minutes. It's a robust implementation of our hit boardgame.

Risks and challenges

While Laboratory has found the most success developing board games, Sam and Clayton both come from a digital games background. Before starting Laboratory, they worked on digital games professionally.

We have a work-in-progress version of the game, and we've show it at PAX Prime. We don't foresee any specific challenges in completing the game on time.
