Update: I've finally linked the Steam retail page on this blog post! I'm keeping the IndieGameStand link at the bottom for right now 'cause I like IndieGameStand, but if you're looking for the Steam version of Sumo, the link's in the description.
Okay, I know this is long overdue, but here's the rundown on Sumo! Revise for the blog followers.
Sumo is not this:
What you're seeing there old Sumo! Revise, which was the alpha-alpha-alpha precursor to this:
Sumo Revise is a 2 - 8 local multiplayer fighting game (that is actually a party game). When I was a kid, I loved that competitive-yet-not multiplayer that one could find packaged with almost any game in the 64 - GameCube era. My brothers and I would spend a lot of time playing these kinda' broken, hilariously fun multiplayer experiences. The first Sumo! was made to relive that experience, and we had so much fun with the 6-hour project that I smoothed it out a bit and made the original Sumo! Revise (the screenshot at the top) so everyone could at least have a bit of fun with it.
Well. . .
I always liked Sumo! Revise a lot, but I could understand that the 37 FPS, the awful visuals, the strange glitches, and the horrible interface would be a huge down for other people. So, after Rubber Ducky, I started to revamp Sumo! Revise into a new Sumo! Revise:
So what is Sumo! anyway?
Sumo is a party game. This is meant as a fun, competitive-yet-not time with friends and, if I can say so myself, is a blast to play. I've spent a lot of time figuring out what rough edges needed to stay and what rough edges needed to go, so I think you'll find a quirky, eccentric-but-loveable sort of experience if you pick this one up.
Officially, Sumo (currently) has:
- Multitudes of Levels!
- Game Modes!
- Game Modifiers!
- Level Editor!
- Mode Editor!
- Mod Editor!
- Space Squid!
And the like. It's hard to put together a marketing list for Sumo! Revise because most of what makes it attractive is really going to come from sitting down and playing it with your friends.
Here's a few places you can find it:
