One True Game Studio’s Divekick started off as a joke, a parody of the fighting game genre. But it seems to have become more than just that. Originally seeking funding from Kickstarter, One True Game Studio managed to find a publisher in Iron Galaxy Studios in July of last year and subsequently cancelled the Kickstarter campaign.
The idea behind Divekick is simple. There are only two buttons: one for diving (jumping) and one for kicking. If you press kick while standing, you’ll move backwards. That’s it! There’s no forward, back, ducking or blocking. The entire game is dependent on your positioning. Each hit ends the round and the first one to five wins the match.
So Divekick looks like it’s a lot of fun to play. One of those games that feels kind of stupid at first and then gets you hooked, making you obsessive trying to catch every nuance of the game.
Divekick is expected to hit PSN in Q3 of this year.
