I don’t know about you, but I (Robin Ek, TGG) have been watching the TV-show “Robot Wars” for years. I have also found a liking to game series such as “Twisted Metal” and “Wipeout”. So, why did I bring all of this up? It’s because Not A Company’s upcoming splitscreen arcade arena combat game “Hoverloop” (for Xbox One and PC) made me think about a combo of “Wipeout”, “Robot Wars” and “Twisted Metal”. Furthermore, “Hoverloop” made me remember the good old days when I and my brothers used to play games in the split screen mode (“Super Mario Kart”, “Wipeout”, “Twisted Metal” with others). Well, I think you get the idea.

I really like the idea of customizable drones, and “Hoverloop” offers that and much more (like 10 playable game modes on release, for example).

So, what is “Hoverloop” all about then? And what does the game has to offer? Well, this would be the basic idea and concept behind “Hoverloop”:

“You will have access to an array of customizable drones, each with it’s own unique ability like Teleport, Deathray or Shield.  Fight against or work together with friends in splitscreen/online multiplayer. If you would rather go solo, that’s also possible, with AI-Bots in a variety of game modes.

So, the essence of the game:
– Select and customize your drone, choose wisely as each drone has its own unique ability.
– Add Splitscreen players to your game or choose to combat AI-Bots.
– Pick your game mode, there will be a range of 10 game modes to choose from!
– Select your favorite Arena.
– Game On!” – Not A Company

The split screen feature made me think about the old-school days when I used to play games together with my brothers on the PS1.

 

As good as that may sound though, there is a catch to all of this, and that would be the fact that “Hoverloop” needs to collect 15,000 Euros on Kickstarter in-order to become a reality. Even so, things are still looking rather good for Not A Company at the moment, as their game has already raised about 1,000 Euros with 27 days left on the Kickstarter campaign to go. It’s also worth pointing out that “Hoverloop” has already been greenlited on Steam Greenlight. So I take it that there is a market for a game of this kind. In other words, there is a good chance for “Hoverloop” to be funded on time =) And “if” that’s the case, then the idea would be to release for Xbox One and PC in January next year.

So I wish Not A Company the best of luck with everything, and if you want to see “Hoverloop” in-action. Then you can watch the “Games Modes” video down below.
