Very realistic football game Behold the Kickmen dribbles onto Steam in authentic and accurate way

Behold the Kickmen [official site], the arcade game about football, known in some parts of the world as British Football, has been released this day. It’s by Dan Marshall and Size Five Games, makers of The Swindle. Dan started working on the ball-kicker as part of a game jam but was whisked away by the locker room drama of it all until he finally ended…

Foolish football: Behold The Kickmen coming Thursday

If football is the biggest sport in England, pretending that you don't know anything about football comes a close second. Dan Marshall, the creator of The Swindle and the bad half of Ben & Dan, is a fan of the second. His Behold the Kickmen [official site] is an arcade kick 'em up which gets football gloriously wrong, and it's launching this Thursday. It'll run…

Behold The Kickmen adds ‘Speedball’ mode

It's not officially called Speedball mode because that might cause upsets down the line, but Dan Marshall's Behold the Kickmen [official site] now has a menu switch that turns it from a highly accurate football simulation into a highly accurate grim futuresport simulation. I say "highly accurate" with tongue in cheek as Kickmen is the project of Dan Marshall (he of Ben There Dan That…

Silly Football In The Swindle Dev’s Behold The Kickmen

Here's a curious thought experiment: what if football were played by human beings rather than sentient cars? How would they turbo boost? How would they even kick the ball? Dan Marshall - him what made The Swindle and is the mean half of Ben & Dan - has some ideas. He's making Behold the Kickmen, a game where football is played on a round pitch…

Ben But No Dan: The Often-Ending Story

"When's the new Ben & Dan game coming?" the crowd throbbing around Dan Marshall pleads. Something about the way his shirt is always unbuttoned, inevitably one button beyond appropriate, makes people assume he's in control. "You know, Son of Ben & Dan, or Revenge of the Balloon-Headed Mexican, or whatever it is, when oh when oh where oh why?" You don't need Dan. You probably…

Down The Tube: A Developer’s Guide To Television

You may have heard about last weekend's extraordinarily disastrous attempt to film and broadcast a Pepsi-sponsored game jam, called GAME_JAM. At enormous expense (rumours fly of around $400,000), a group of in-indies - the likes of Zoe Quinn, Davey Wreden, and Robin Arnott - and YouTubers were supposed to be taking part in a reality-show-cum-game-jam for four days, to be professionally filmed, edited and broadcast…

BAFTA Publicly Praises Size Five’s Privates

If your only exposure to Size Five's size five Privates is through this esteemed periodical, you may believe that it is little more more than a flimsy excuse for us to make jokes about willies. Not true. Last night, at the British Academy Children's Awards, Privates won in the 'Learning - Secondary' category. This involved beating off competition from the likes of erstwhile Naked Chef…

Adventures With Hitler: Zombie Cow Interview

The really very splendid Time Gentlemen, Please!, from indie developers Zombie Cow, has already seen Alec pronounce its glories in beautiful form. An genuinely hilarious game (oh, how woefully that word is applied to any game that isn't actively about the gruesome death of children - here it's used correctly), it deserves a lot of attention. So does the creator, one half of Zombie Cow,…

Gaming Made Me: The Return Of The Panel

It's been emotional. Now, over a week of frenzied nostalgia later, Gaming Made Me draws to a close with a final round-up of Developers and Journalists. From the former, Ed Stern, Brian Mitsoda, Annie Carlson, Dan Marshall and Simon Parkin. From the latter, LewieP and Simon Parkin. Oh no! Simon's dual-classed, the powergaming twink. Recollections... go!
