For anyone that is as old as I am, they may remember the Speedball series on the Amiga.
Well, today on Steam a new game called Steel Circus has entered Early Access, which bares a lot of resemblances to Speedball!
Steel Circus is the solar system’s largest sporting event. Players control one of several champions with unique abilities in competitive online matches. Throw, pass, tackle and dodge to score goals in a game where skill, team play, and tactical decision-making pave the road to victory!
The game is set in the year 2350. After a long period of open conflict and war, there is frail peace in the solar system. Every year the most powerful factions meet as the Solar Council behind closed doors to discuss politics while Champions, representatives of each Faction, compete against each other at the Steel Circus in front of roaring crowds.
Steel Circus is a gigantic spectacle every soul in the solar system is watching closely. Champions are celebrated heroes, beacons of hope and a demonstration of power as they clash in the arena
Before each match, you need to choose a champion to play. Each champion has a unique playstyle and two special skills.
Some champions are great at supporting their team with buffs and heals while others are brawling powerhouses or specialists in wearing their opponents down from afar.
