The 'Jarvis Project' will bring arcade competitive gaming back!

Mon Jun 13, 2016 5:15 pm

As streaming on Twitch is becoming almost as common place as binging on Netflix, the most watched team games are becoming sports in their own right. Professional players come from very competitive communities, adding a whole new level of complexity and strategy to a game. Most of the work in the top e-sports games is done after launch, and they become “real” to the public once the community starts adding their contributions.

The games made by designers such as Eugene Jarvis were meant for public consumption and placed in very competitive environments. The fact that the purpose of local leaderboards was bragging rights introduced a whole new way of social interaction.


Rest of the blog post HERE.

One graphic element you'll see a lot in the game:

YES! Man.. I love that pitch.

I want Esports to become more than Dota and Counterstrike.. it's bound to happen and I'm so glad to see that you guys are attempting to be a part of it. Just awesome.. and smart.

Ehehe, we're still trying to find out the right balance between it being hard and being fair. We also try to invite playtesters of various skill levels just to have a better understanding of how the game feels for both beginners and veterans.

I believe it will be sometime in 2017, if enormous problems don't emerge.
