50°
3w ago - Divekick Creator Adam "Keits" Heart announced news today of a Divekick Addition Edition + on PS4, and also a new character incoming for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Divekick Addition Edition + has finally arrived on PS4! This update to Destructoid's 2013 Fighting Game of the Year is available now for just $9.99. But what is Divekick?

Divekick is the world's first two-button fighting game. It distills the essence of the fighting game genre into just two buttons with no d-pad directional movement.

Divekick's focused gameplay demonstrates how much depth a single move actually has, and introduces (or reinforces) skills fundamental to the genre: mind games, spacing, timing, and quick reactions.

Fans all over the world dove headfirst into Divekick last year and found a very simple to learn, but very difficult to master head to head competitive experience. In fact, weekly online tournaments are still happening to this very day! If you purchased Divekick for PS3 or PS Vita, fear not!

The Addition Edition + update is completely free and will be available to you shortly. You'll be able to enjoy GGPO-powered online cross play, allowing you to fight against players on the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. A world of competition awaits you.

Divetips: Divekick PS3 and PS Vita Strategies from EVO's Top 3

50°
66w ago - Divekick Creator Adam "Keits" Heart shared some Divekick PS3 and PS Vita divetips strategies with fans today from EVO's Top 3 below.

To quote: Divekick is out on PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday! By now, many of you are starting to realize just how deep and competitive this game really is.

Online ranked play is going to be filled with killers in no time, so to help you get a head start, we've compiled a few tips from the top 3 finishers at EVO 2013. Additionally, we've included a quick character bio for our final fighter, Kenny, to complement our first two roster updates.

5 Tips from EVO Champion Mean Saltine

1. Know your spacing. Every character in the game has a different angle on their divekick. It is critical that you know how close you can get to your opponent without getting kicked in the face. You know you are at the perfect range when you can react to an opponents attack with an attack of your own.

2. Be patient. It might seem natural to go crazy with your divekicks, but it is much more effective to wait for your opponent to make a mistake before you strike. Playing too aggressive is very dangerous against patient opponents!

3. Use your special moves. Every character has two special abilities in the game. Sometimes knowing when...

To quote: Divekick's roster continues to grow, and each new challenger is even more insane than the last.

The Baz

He joins the Divekicking league as a last resort, due to their incredibly low standards.

83w ago - Creator Adam "Keits" Heart has revealed the current Divekick character roster below with more coming, as follows:

Seeing a character is one thing. Playing as them is another. But really, what you want deep down, is to get to know each of the playable characters in a fighting game. What are their motivations, birthdates, likes and dislikes?

Without this knowledge, how can you form the emotional bond needed to find success in Divekick? As such, we've collected each of the presently known characters' bios for you - tune into [Register or Login to view links] every Monday at 9:00PM CST for new character and content reveals.

Dive

Health: 1,000 // Power: 1,000,000,000

Dive was raised in West Philadelphia with his fraternal twin brother, Kick. When trouble brewed at their local park, the boys' mother sent them to live with their Uncle Sensei in Bel Air to learn how to Divekick.

Dive strives to perfect the art of diving into the air, using his love of math to ensure that he is always at an angle that will lead him to victory. His massive study sessions and dedication to his schoolwork have left him with less time to focus on his kicking, however.

Date of Birth: 12/07/1988

Sony Announces Divekick: A Tale of Two Buttons for PSN and PS Vita

50°
86w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill has announced today that Divekick: A Tale of Two Buttons is coming for both PS3 via PSN and PS Vita consoles.

To quote: If you follow the fighting game community, you probably already know all about Divekick. If not, take a moment to read this intro post from Iron Galaxy to get up to speed.

Talk of Divekick at GDC last week was impossible to ignore, but how does it actually play? The game's minimalist design invites skepticism, but rest assured: this is a deeper, more addictive experience that you might imagine.

Divekick shrugs off the fighting game genre's longstanding barriers, creating a sleek, streamlined competitive experience - it's the primordial essence of what makes fighting games fun.

This is a game about outsmarting and outmaneuvering your opponent. Gone are complex input commands, phalangeal acrobatics, and superhuman timing windows. There are only two buttons: Dive and Kick. You won't be using the D-pad or analog stick. You can't block.

You can't even move... at least, not traditionally. To advance towards your opponent you tap Dive (a vertical leap), then Kick to propel your fighter feet-first.

A tap of the Kick button while on the ground results an evasive hop backward. Connecting...
