Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure Brings Quirky Mayhem To PS4
Betcha never thought you'd play a dodgeball game.
Of course, this has a twist or two but even so, the premise is dodgeball. And it looks like tons o' fun.
The game is Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure and as revealed over at the PlayStation Blog, it's a blend of dodgeball and fighting, where you "make use of everything from dodgeballs to jellyfish in order to eliminate your competitors." There's even a co-op story campaign and if you want to play solo, you can simply play with the AI. This title received the "Most Fun" award and came in 3rd overall at the Nordic Game Jam event, so new studio Reign Bros is understandably excited. And here's another interesting twist:
"For instance, players may take control of various hazardous events after elimination from the round. Apart from giving eliminated players something to do between rounds, this is an encouragement for them to intervene with the balance of the action. Whether players opt to chase revenge on their nemesis or target the leading player, this influence often leads to wonderfully personal player interactions."
We don't yet know when Stikbold! will arrive but we assume it'll be sooner rather than later. Check it out:
