Sociable Soccer Cancels Kickstarter, But Is Still Coming

Retro revival Kickstarters are interesting ways to find out quite how much people want an old game or genre to return, and how much they miss being young. Remember Sensible Soccer, yeah?

Sensible Soccer, Foot-to-ball And Me

[This was originally published in a slightly different form over at the Escapist under the title "Sensible Soccer: How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Ball". I'm republishing it under a different title, because that one won't fit into the terribly restrictive page-width of narrow-set RPS.

Kicking Off

Readers of increasing age will remember - possibly fondly - the Kick Off games. Top down hyper-speed football which everyone played until Sensible released Sensible Soccer (Except for some people who didn't and carried on claiming it's the superior game). Its creator Dino Dini has recently been involved in a little internet-fisticuffs over the state of his Wikipedia page, which basically included a revert-war and…
