News – Stikbold! is Dodgeball like you’ve never seen before
Due this spring on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac is the very quirky Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure. The 70s inspired Dodgeball game is a crazy twist on the ball dodging game that has you duking it out in everything from a public park to an oil rig, which become even more dangerous with added hazards such as jellyfish and beehives. The game is definitely sounding a bit mad.
Stikbold! Features 18 characters, some of which are unlockable. The story mode is centered around the team of Bjorn and Jerome, who are described as some of the greatest Stikbold! players. The duo’s task is to save the Stikbold! championships, defeat the devil, and rescue women. It looks like it is going to be quite a busy time for the duo then. In the story mode, you’ll also take on everything from hippies, whales and skeletons, and will also come face-to-face with some hugely intimidating bosses. There’s over 45 challenges to test your skills with, and the mode can be played alone or with another player.
In other modes, Stikbold! can be played by up to four players locally, with the potential to also throw two AI players in, making for a total of six players. Even when you are knocked out in a match, you are able to influence the final result by becoming a hazard for the remaining players. Hazards include Sand Sharks and Angry Swans, amongst others, and believe me you really don’t want to get on the wrong side of an angry swan.
Finally, to fit the mood of the game, Stikbold! features a fully licensed 70s inspired soundtrack.
Stikbold! is developed by Danish development team Game Swing, and came about thanks to the Nordic Game Jam.
