Rivals - New Indie Football Game Prototype Available To Play Now - Closed Alpha Could Be Released in April

Game developer, 26k has released a prototype for Rivals, a new Indie football game for PC. Ryan Kamins, one of the developers at 26k, who is also a lighting artist at Bungie, has a goal…

My goal for Rivals is to build a game that eventually plays like the legendary football games of the 8/16 bit era, improved with some modern touches that we couldn’t yet imagine back then.

Since the prototype was released, over 2 months ago, Ryan has posted a few developer logs on defense, kicking and the most recent, diving. The game even has roster editing for names, ratings, uniform colors and more! Things seem to be progressing very nicely.

26k has been and wants to continue receiving more feedback on the game. So make sure to download it here, play a few games and post your thoughts.

It could be arriving as a closed alpha on Steam in April. Check out some of the tweets below.

  1. Hey yall, developer for Rivals here. Huge thanks to Steve and everyone who checked out the game and downloaded the prototype! I've been working on the game steadily for the last 3 months and a lot of updates and improvements have been added to the game in that time.
    I'll be hanging out here if you have any questions about where the game is headed, game development in general, or any thoughts along the way. Feedback is appreciated as always!
    Thanks!
    Just wanted to share a couple of screenshots to show off some of the visual changes to Rivals from the last few weeks. Recently the field and stadium got a bit of a facelift:

    Along with that, I've updated the player model and improved their uniform and color options. A few familiar color schemes you might recognize built in the in-game editor:
