Video Dev Diary #1 – Foosball 2012
As someone that has been a pretty avid Foosball player for years, I was skeptical when I saw this arrive in my email today. After watching the video though, and seeing that not only does it support Move, but that it’ll support 2 controllers is pretty intriguing. Check out the video for yourself. The full press release follows the video.
Foosball 2012 can be played either by using the DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller or by the PlayStation®Move motion controller. The PS Move controls are unique, allowing players to control the game as if they were controlling a real foosball table! Hold the PS Move motion controller in horizontal position and move it back and forth to shift the poles and twist to shoot.
“Thanks to the PS Move’s precision paired with zero lag, even the smallest motions of the controller are properly represented in the game, with the player being able to perfectly control the power of shots and the placement of his foosmen,” said Jakub Mikyska, CEO of Grip Games. “It is possible to play using only one PS Move – the player controls all the poles simultaneously, or the player can use two PS Move controllers at the same time, with each hand controlling a twist.”
For those, who do not have a PS Move motion controller, or simply don’t want to use it, the DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller is also supported. Initially, the left stick controls the movements of the poles and the ball and the right stick is used to shoot, giving the players a precise control over the direction and power of each shot. Three different control setups are available, from a more casual one to an expert controls, allowing everyone to choose their favorite.
Foosball 2012 will feature single and multiplayer modes along with Quick Match gameplay where up to four players can play simultaneously in a local match. The game supports both DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller and PS Move motion controller support for ultra-realistic foosball controls that will make players feel like they are controlling a real foosball table!
Between now and E3, Grip Games will be launching a series of developer diaries on their site and on their official Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/gripgames.
