Gaelic Football is coming to PC and consoles
Mojopin Studios have launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming video game All Star Gaelic Football. The campaign launched on 9th April 2018 and sees Gaelic Football come back to consoles for the first time in nearly 15 years.
All Star Gaelic Football will offer authentic gameplay, made by dedicated fans of Gaelic Football. Mojopin Studios have used state of the art motion capture technology to capture the movements of Monaghan’s Darren Hughes and Tyrone’s Mattie Donnelly to ensure authenticity and realistic animations are implemented in the game. Solo, bounce, kick, catch, tackle, fist-pass just like you see every week in county grounds up and down the island.
“When you play All Star Gaelic Football, I think you’ll immediately notice the time and care that has been put into the game feel just like the real sport”, said Technical Director Peadar McMahon. “We have put an emphasis on getting the gameplay right first and foremost, this is the most important part of the game, the frills can come down the line.”
Players will be able to compete in a number of single-player competitions, including League and Championship, or compete against others either locally, against friends, or online against other players. There will also be a comprehensive edit suite that will allow players to put their heroes, or their friends, in the game.
The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise money to help develop the game but also to raise awareness for the game. There are a number rewards available for backers of the Kickstarter campaign, from simply receiving the game to getting your name in the game, receiving a custom ASG Football jersey or getting an invitation to the launch party for All Star Gaelic Football. Backers of the game will be able to purchase the game for a special reduced price, exclusive to the Kickstarter campaign.
“We have a number of updates and announcements to make over the course of the campaign”, said McMahon. “There are exciting developments in the pipeline and with support from fans all over Ireland, and further afield, we aim to make them a reality. Without the fans support, this project can’t happen.”
