Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to form a community of passionate players who demand the best and suggest the best. So Steam Early Access seems like the perfect option. Super Arcade Football has a lot of scope; from different ways to play, different game modes, online tournaments and a detailed career mode to name a few, but we look forward to the steam community to name the rest.
We want to make a great football game and a great arcade game with the input from passionate players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are aiming to be in Early Access until 2018. We speculate the features that may take up most of the development time are the career mode and online features, as they are quite large beasts to tackle and demand a lot of iteration. However, all versions in Early Access and the final release will focus on intense fun.”

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

“Other than a good dollop of polish...features. Features spawned from the amazing suggestions of Steam users as well as our own ideas. Below we have listed what's in the game currently, but we have big plans for the upcoming career mode and the online multiplayer side. There’ll also be many many more teams, tournaments, modifiers and game types.

We’ll also have obliterated all the bugs that are probably nesting in the current version… hopefully.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Super Arcade Football has:
  • Gameplay Features

    You can play a standard match of football (without the offsides), which we think is quite fun. There are also different game types and match modifiers to really make the matches spicey!
    Change the duration, pitch type, as well as enabling any of our match modifiers such as falling meteorites, zorb mode, speed lines and many more!
  • Quick Match

    Where you can jump straight in and choose any team and setup any match type. You can play against the AI, or with any combination of human players (4 gamepads and 1 keyboard).

  • Tournaments

    Create your own custom leage, knockout or mixed tournament. Or choose from the current presets:
    World Cup
    Euro Cup
    Premier League
    Serie A
  • Edit / Create Teams

    SAF currently has 264 teams and 6,645 players! All are editable via our in game editor or by using an external spreadsheet program such as Excel. You can also create your own custom teams.

  • Online

    You can find and play other SAF players in our online matchmaking mode. Here you can play quick
    matches with players. You are also able to play with local guest players on your team.

  • Other bits and bobs

    We also have the other things you'd expect to see in any modern PC game such as customise controls, settings, and replays.

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features”

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

“We will be posting regular/weekly updates on the progress of the game as well as persistently asking the community how to make the best football game ever. We have a clear idea of what we want SAF to be, but we know that there is a big community out there in the gamer world whose great ideas and feedback we will not want to pass up.
We are super excited about opening up the workshop for people to upload their crazy custom game types, goals and custom teams. Our main platform for updates and discussions will be right here on Steam, but we will also be present on the usuals such as Twitter, Twitch and Reddit!”

BIG SAF Development Update!

Big Announcement :/

Hey guys, we have an important announcement to make this week, and it is in regards to the future of Super Arcade Football...

We've been talking it over, and we think that the current direction we are going with SAF is not the right one. In the past few months we have put too much focus on the whole 3D aspect of the game; Adding in the stadiums, crowd, new camera modes etc, and all this has made the game feel more like it is being geared towards a much bigger project, and one that would take many many months to complete. We feel this has detracted from the original vision we had of the game, which was more of a pure, simple arcade soccer experience. And so we want to return to this original concept.

Before the project balloons any further, and turns into something completely unmanageable, we have decided to scale down this new release. We've stripped out the things we think were not working to our liking (The crowd, stadium etc) and are now going to focus entirely on gameplay for the time-being. All features remain the same, you can still play online, create teams, play tournaments, export replays etc. It's mainly the visuals and controls that have been stripped back. This version also brings with it some much needed optimisations for loading times,frame rate performances, as well as bug fixes.

We're also going to take a break for a few months, as this was not an easy decision to make. After working on this project for so long (those of you who've been with us since the beginning know more than anyone how long it's been :steamsad:) we think we need a pause so we can come back to the project with fresh eyes.

We will of course leave the previous version of SAF on a different branch. If you wish to play that verision, you can access it by going to:

SuperArcadeFootball -> Properties -> BETAS and type in the code:

We really appreciate the support you guys have given us, seriously, and this is not a decision we take lightly. But ultimately we want to make a great game, and think this is best course of action for everyone.

It's not over, it's just half-time.

Speak soon.

That's right! As you might have noticed, SAF has been expanding into a much bigger project than originally anticipated, and we want this game to be amazing. But we could really do with an extra pair of hands!
