What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are still developing game-depth key areas that will be included with the base full game. To finish developing the game, we want your contribution and feedback. With a reduced price in this early access stage, the game is currently fully playable and you can enjoy the available features: Tournament, League, Penalty Shootouts and Friendly Match modes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are working everyday to make Pixel Cup Soccer have the best features the community has asked for! The game has been re-engineered to work under our renewed Game Engine API+Unity Engine. The current development version now features an improved AI, new players with different hairstyles, more stadiums and Steam Remote Play Together. We are currently working on the Career Mode. When this mode is complete, the game will leave the early access stage and it will be released as full! The estimated time for development is approximately 3 months!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The main difference between Full vs Early you will appreciate is the development of a Career Mode: Start from zero, create an amateur team (using a fully customizable Team Editor), then play matches to gain experience and take your team to the top! Once the game is in a Full Release state, we are planning for periodic content updates and events, taking the chance to expand game mechanics beyond regular soccer gameplay. Needless to say that beyond these additions, we will read all your feedback and incorporate those features that we feel will improve the game, and that we are able to develop.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the game is a stable version where you can play friendly matches, competitions, and penalty kicks as Single Player, PvP, or PvP via Remote Play.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Once the game leaves the Early Access stage the price will be modified, as we want to make sure that the people who supported us early on are rewarded for doing so. Funds we raise after Full Release of the game will be largely destined towards game expansion and in support of the previously mentioned planned content updates.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our goal during the Early Access process is to have an active rapport with our users. Feel free to contact us with your feedback, suggestions, and ideas. We are always taking note of the player’s feedback to make Pixel Cup Soccer the best retro soccer game in the world!”

About This Game

Pixel Cup Soccer is a casual retro style soccer game, a great evolution from the previous edition. It's dynamic, arcade, with a fast paced gameplay, just the fun part of soccer! The game has great pixel art graphics like the games from the 90’s, evoking nostalgia.
It features great pixel art and soundtracks that evoke nostalgia of the glory days of the 80’s and 90’s arcade games.

Move, pass, and shoot the ball to victory! You will learn to play in one minute, but it takes much longer to master it. The simple controls enable a rich set of features such as charging and aiming your shots, directing your corner kicks and throw-ins, shooting lobs, slide tackles, and more.

Play single-player (player VS computer) or local multi-player (player VS player). With your support, we would like to add new features, a career mode, and eventually, why not, online multiplayer!
