Fledgling developer Pixel Rampage has managed to secure funding for Gridiron Heroes, an NES-style football game that will launch on Facebook in beta mode this April.
By From Inside Social Games
Gridiron Heroes is a football team-manager sim inspired by Tecmo Bowl. Players establish their own football franchise and handle almost every detail imaginable: choosing the team name and logo, managing the player roster and training athletes are only a few of the tasks that have to be accomplished. Ultimately, players will be placed into leagues with their friends and then start playing one another. Seasons last four weeks at a time, with each player getting to play one league game a day.
According to Pixel Rampage co-founder David Murray, those who backed the game will have character customization options available to them, but only while Gridiron Heroes's in beta. Other than that, there are no other immediate bonuses planned for backers, though these players will have extra content made available as the game expands.
"We reached out to our fans, because ultimately they will be the ones playing Gridiron Heroes," said Murray. "Letting them name players and create content for the game seemed like a fitting reward — something they'll really appreciate when they see the character named after themselves winning our version of the Super Bowl."
