The Polish studio Cat-astrophe Games studio has shared information that it is currently working on FoodBall, a game that combines sports, car racing and food. The game will be published by Gaming Factory S.A.
FoodBall will be released on Nintendo Switch and PC In the third quarter of 2020. The title will appear on Xbox One at a later date. The exact dates are yet to be announced. The publisher does not rule out releasing the title on other platforms.
The game offers, among other things, a story mode, different characters/vehicles, and extensive couch-style multiplayer mode.
The gameplay is based on principles similar to football - the ball is replaced with, e.g. tomato and instead of players, food trucks will be used to compete.
“FoodBall will offer an extensive story mode with comic-book inserts and each of the characters will have its own history and unique skills that will have a significant impact on the gameplay," says the CEO of Cat-astrophe Games, Paweł Wojciechowicz. "We attach special importance to local multiplayer modes (competition and cooperation) and good fun before one console/PC is one of our main objectives."
The story mode tells the stories of food truck owners who are trying to revolutionize the culinary world. Each of the 8 basic characters will have their specific and eccentric machine, unique recipes and skills (e.g. acceleration, freezing opponents and setting culinary traps). Playing each character will be a unique experience, and the right choice can have a decisive impact on the match.
As Paweł Wojciechowicz explains, FoodBall will also offer various pitches located in different parts of the world where there will be plenty of random events and specific obstacles. You will also be able to significantly change the appearance of the vehicles.
“Cat-astrophe Games studio is preparing a game that is the ideal proposition for those who like to have fun with family or friends in front of one console or computer. At the same time, however, players who prefer to play alone can also find many attractions. The mechanics itself will be based on the principle ‘Easy to play, hard to master’” says the CEO of Gaming Factory S.A., Mateusz Adamkiewicz.
