Super Blood Hockey released a new video for its public beta today. The game is a local multiplayer sprite based hockey game. The developer, Loren Lemcke, has been working on the project for a couple of months, and has finally released the beta to the public. While the game is free to play for now, once it is feature complete the developer intends on selling it on Steam. Check out the new trailer below.

The Good Ol’ Hockey Game

While the game is still only in beta, it is teeming with retro charm. Scoring a goal lights up the rink with red and blue disco lights while players celebrate. Flecks of blood fly from the bodies of checked players. Snow flies as as skaters make sharp turns on the ice. Super Blood Hockey captures the spirit of the best game you name.

Only two teams are available in the current build, Finland and Russia. Players can take control of one of four skaters. The team has a mixture of fat, medium, and skinny players which will have their own individual advantages in the future. Penalties are obsolete in this blood filled brawl on ice. Checking opponents with or without the puck is important to gaining the advantage and get the biscuit pass the goalie. The game has a simple control scheme, keeping players in the action.

Here is a list of features the developer is planning –

Individual player names, stats, bio’s, performance. E.g. a pool of unique players.
Different performance attributes, abilities, and such for different sized players (skinny, average, large).
Career Mode: Create and manage your own custom team, and follow their progress throughout multiple seasons and tournaments.
Multiplayer: Online mulitplayer, take your custom team online and play others.
Full suite of Stats, for both players and teams.
Instant replays.
More Teams, rinks, and other stuff.
Injuries.

The game is out in beta right now on Playfield.io. The game is set to release later this year on Steam.
