- Ludometrics Founder David Thomson
announced today that Bodycheck is coming to PlayStation Vita!
To quote: Hiya. I'm David, the de-facto Chief Person at Ludometrics, based in Glasgow, Scotland. The team here has been around for a long time in various forms, prior to teaming up again at Ludometrics; we originally made games for mobile phones way back last century, if you can imagine that.
Today, though, I'm here to tell you about Bodycheck, a game I've been waiting to make for quite a long time. Sometimes, as it's said, all you need is a little patience.
Bodycheck is a sports game for people who don't necessarily like sports. Personally, I'm a fan of sports. I can sports with the best of them. But I find most sports games of recent years lack a certain something-something. Perhaps they're not physical enough, or they manage not to capture the chaos of play, or sometimes they're just a bit ponderous.
Bodycheck will (hopefully) contain that certain something-something. I love reading about the origins of football in the Middle Ages, with 500 players per team and matches lasting days - and the ball was actually a pig's head.
We won't have that many players per team in the game, and matches will be a tad shorter, but punching, scratching, and general unnecessary roughness...
