The ridiculously fun and chaotic minimalist sports game, #IDARB, is about to get even better. As if that was even possible, right?
The cool kids over at Skybound Games and Other Ocean have decided to bring Robert Kirkman’s acclaimed comic series The Walking Dead and Invincible to life in the only way they know how. Retro sports ball!
“We’re very excited to be partnered with Skybound for our first digital content offering,” said Mike Mika, Other Ocean director of development and #IDARB creator. “The team at our studio loves comics, and we are really excited to be working in these two rich universes. The Walking Dead and Invincible have given us great material from which to bring new and unique experiences to #IDARB. We think fans of both the comics and the game are really going to enjoy this.”
The digital add-on pack will include:
– Two all new arenas: an Invincible and a The Walking Dead Arena. Each arena adds new gameplay elements in the theme of the respective comic.
– All new The Walking Dead and Invincible teams, half-time games, and hashbombs!
– New announcer calls, theme music and sound effects specific to each new arena.
With #IDARB now having been downloaded by 1.8 million Xbox One users worldwide and having quickly gained its own esports community, the future looks good for this indie gem.
As of yet, there is no word on a release date, price or how many random exclamations of “CARL! STAY BACK!” and missing limbs there will be. More information is scheduled to be announced in the coming months.
