Tribble Sports is a fun, incredibly addictive, simple to play, impossible to put down mini sports game for the mobile platform.

Update #1: We pledge to be part of the Kicking It Forward project

We found this really cool project started by Brian Fargo of inXile entertainment that we can 100% get behind.

We have always been of the belief of giving back and paying it forward.

We proudly wear this badge!

On top of the 5% profits we pledge to give back to Kickstarter projects we pledge to give another 5% of our profits after 1 year of Tribble Sports being released to a charity cause to be determined!

========================================================

Tribble Sports is a multi-mini-sports game based on the story that the alien race called "Tribbles", from one of the greatest sci-fi series of all time which were introduced in the episode "The Trouble With Tribbles", have come to earth and began to multiply.  Since stopping the multiplying Tribbles is nearly impossible it was decided to replace everyday manufactured items with the Tribbles, the most common of which turned out to be sports balls.

Tribble Sports is a game that can laugh at itself. With stereotypical characters:

Crazy antics:

And some cute sounds and playful music. Check out more artwork at the bottom of this Kickstarter.

Tribble Sports plans to launch with two sports: Golf and Bowling.  Both sports are available to play in single and multiplayer modes.  Tribble Golf will be a 2D side scrolling game that uses a point and drag system to aim and determine how hard you hit the ball.  Multiplayer golf is playable with friends online and features the next turn going to the player with the ball furthest from the hole.  Tribble Bowling is a third person sport which uses a unique mechanic where the player must tilt the gaming device to turn or curve the ball down the lanes.  Multiplayer bowling will follow a traditional turn based style of play.  You will also be able to keep track of high scores and challenge the scores of your friends.

Every level you play in Tribble Sports is a random procedurally generated level. This means that you'll never play the same level twice unless you want to! That is where the endless fun comes into play; always having a new and challenging level in front of you.

The initial launch of Tribble Sports is planned for the iOS operating system with plans to expand to Android at first opportunity.  We currently have about 50% of the project completed and our goal is to launch a finished product by the San Diego Comic-Con where have procured booth space to answer questions and give demonstrations of the game.  Updates with additional sports are planned and may include sports such as tennis and volleyball.

Vortex Games, Inc. is a small self-funded indie game studio with an immense passion and drive for developing amazing games. With a few employees (friends) and the help of generous contractors they've successfully completed one game, Disoriented, and now has their sights on Tribble Sports.

We are extremely fortunate to be working with Miles Rinis, the owner of TribbleToys.com, and David Gerrold, the original creator of Tribbles. Both have been very supportive and helpful with getting us the rights to use the adorable furry balls in our game. We will be sharing a booth space with them at Comic-Con to showcase Tribble Sports in all of it's ridiculously entertaining glory.

Vortex Games is completely funded from our own pockets and with the little amount of time we have to spend working on the game it would take years. We want to hire a dedicated and brilliant programmer full-time to finish this project. The funding from this Kickstarter will also continue to be supplemented by our own funding so don't think we are trying to take the easy way out! We are in this together and we want to see this game built just as much as you do.

Every little bit you can give helps, even if it's just $1. Try out the demo below and we think you'll want to support us.

We hope you enjoy these additional images:


We believe in giving our fans something in return for their support and hopefully draw in new fans as well. As such we are allowing everyone to download an alpha demo of Tribble Sports which can be played on any Windows machine. This is a very early demo but even with this demo we have gotten such positive feedback that it still blows our minds.
