FoodBall combines a sports game with car racing. The gameplay is based on principles similar to soccer – the ball is replaced with, e.g. a tomato and instead of players will food trucks compete. The developers are preparing 3D graphics in pastel colors and an overhead view (isometric view).

The story mode tells the stories of food truck owners who try to revolutionize the culinary world. Each of the 8 basic characters will have their specific and eccentric machine, unique recipes and skills (e.g. acceleration, freezing opponents and setting culinary traps). The creators emphasize that in practice playing each character will be a unique experience, and the right choice can have a decisive impact on the match.

As Paweł Wojciechowicz explains, FoodBall will also offer a differentiated pitches located in different parts of the world in which there will be plenty of random events and specific obstacles. You will also be able to significantly change the appearance of the vehicles.

  • Local multiplayer mode (2 to 4 players);
  • Pastel graphic design;
  • Tournaments and expanded story mode;

Broken Lines have announced that Broken Lines, a narrative-driven tactics game set in an alternate World War II setting, will be released on Nintendo Switch in Q1 2020 in both Europe and North America.

Here’s some details:

Broken Lines, coming to Switch and Windows PC, is a narrative-driven tactics game where a group of soldiers ends up deep behind enemy lines after their plane crashes. In this alternate version of WWII, enemies are both mysterious military units and the soldiers’ own hopes and fears as they confront the mental and physical horrors of war during their struggle to return to friendly territory. Broken Lines combines a tactical-RPG playstyle with a “pause and play” format. This offers players more fluid and realistic gameplay with the action automatically pausing when new dangers appear, allowing the player to respond to the new tactical situation.

Broken Lines is a tactical combat game with a heavy focus on character and story that offers a fresh, accessible, and innovative approach to unit control. In the game, players manage a squad of soldiers fighting through Eastern European battlefields on a desperate mission to get back behind friendly lines. As the soldiers make their way through the war-torn landscape, their experiences will continually shape their personalities and their relationships with each other, building up a storyline that reveals the true impact of the horrors of war — and perhaps something more.
