Jon Hare, creator of classic soccer series Sensible Soccer, is bringing its spiritual successor to modern consoles and PC with Sociable Soccer. It’s currently on Kickstarter and seeking £300,000 in funding – you can check out the Kickstarter trailer below:

Sociable Soccer will bring fast paced, arcade style football games up to date with online multiplayer mode, customisable player avatars, and clan based online leagues.

Sociable Soccer’s gameplay is designed to be smooth and fast, intuitively simple yet infinitely complex, featuring the same quick passing, precise aftertouch and bone crunching slide tackles that are a hallmark of all Jon Hare’s football games.

Sociable Soccer will offer a wide variety of camera viewpoints, including the zoomed-out, overhead viewpoints familiar to Sensible Soccer players and the dynamic pitchside cameras familiar to fans of FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. Along with a wide variety of control options, every player will quickly be able to tailor the game to their own preferences.

– In Sociable Soccer you choose your formation, select the starting eleven, make substitutions and control the whole team on the pitch at all times.”

I was a huge fan of the Sensible Soccer series, so I’ll definitely be backing Sociable Soccer. If it hits its target it’s expected release will be December 2016 on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. Interested in backing? Check out Sociable Soccer’s Kickstarter page through this link!
