    Hey guys

    I'm the Community Manager of Sociable Soccer and I'd like to hear all your feedback on our new game. If you haven't seen it, this is our latest video.



    Ask me anything and I'll try to answer as well as I can.

    Thanks!

    I thought the Kickstarter didn't reach its goal?

    @Andee They are one of our current priorities. Somebody else mentioned we must have been inspired by the current Chelsea keeper.

    @eightbitboy We aim to keep the feel of the original games by Jon when it comes to gameplay. ;)

    Jon cancelled it before it ended and decided to go with other options. I'm the latest addition to the team.

    You're externally condemned to only have the second-best footballer username on the forum I'm afraid.

    Haha thanks, I had to read up on your username to understand that. The dream is never unreachable. You know, that player was probably in SWOS. ;)

    I didn't see a single one of them fixing their nets for a start.

    Can you play in the top down view? The isometric view doesn't look the easiest to control.

    Yes you can, and of course it is easier for you if you've played Jon's previous games. The new view is for the younger and new audience.

    Quite looking forward to this. Be good to have an updated sensi to play online. Loved swos back in the day.

    Hope it's not a silly price when it launches.

    It looks slightly too close to me, although it's something I could get used to.

    Can I play as apples?

    I'd never play as oranges. Orange scum.

    I'll only play top down view when this game comes out. I hope there will be cup competitions and leagues involving other players :)

    Custom teams will be in. I'll add pears if I can. :D

    The online mode will feature 1vs1 create a room kind of mode, and 1vs1 quick play based on your favorite team, nationality and clan.

    About 1000 teams and 67 competitions in individual leagues/cups for those teams to take part in.

    As someone that will be playing the original tonight as part of a retro night with my mates (we still play Sensi every time, albeit the Megadrive version on a MAME cab), I think this looks great, apart from the keepers, but you've already said that's a priority.

    Looking like a day one purchase for me on Xbox One, this could be amazing multiplayer!

    So what game modes are we talking.

    Career and 1 vs 1 local and online?

    Will there be online tournaments you can create or enter?

    We'll have Single Player Mode, Multiplayer Mode, D.I.Y mode, Preset Competitions Mode, Player Avatar Career Mode and 1vs1 Online mode and Ladder online mode, to name a few. There will also be special online tournaments by invitation for those who have performed very well in the ladder mode.

    Career mode is a huge development process and will not be with us for this game. Gameplay and online is the main focus.

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but will one button control everything - pass, shoot etc?

    I know lots of people who are a little 'put-off' by the controls on games such as Fifa and Pro Evo.

    I'll also want the ability to create my own team of players with HILARIOUS names.

    FIFA has a two button mode.
