Switch Port: COMING IN APRIL! Xbox One and Playstation 4 to follow + Franchise Mode! + Price Increase

By popular demand, I am happy to announce that Super Blood Hockey will be launching on Nintendo Switch™ on a still-to-be-confirmed date in April, while the PS4™ and Xbox One™ versions will follow sometime in Q2 2019.

Watch the trailer:

I have teamed up with Digerati Distribution and Kittehface Software to make this a reality. Porting to all three consoles was a near impossible task to accomplish in a reasonable time frame by myself. It made more sense to give the project to talented and experienced professionals, which in turn would allow me to focus on things I am better at. If you are wondering, Digerati was the 9th highest rated publisher on Metacritic for the year 2018, so they have an established and proven track record of quality (

The Franchise Mode is now live! Create, recruit and manage your own custom team of inmates in a futuristic world of dystopic blood sports! You will also notice some small quality of life updates here and there to the rest of the game. For a full log of changes, I recommend reading through prior Franchise Mode announcements. You will also notice a rebranding of the games promotional assets to be consistent with the console ports.

Special thanks to every Beta Tester who helped me make the Franchise Mode happen! I honestly couldn’t have done it without all the amazing feedback and bug reports that you folks came up with.

PLEASE NOTE: One week from this posting there will be a price increase to match the added content. I didn’t want to raise the price immediately upon release of the Franchise mode because I wanted to give everyone a fair shake at the current base price. Those that have been following for a while will know that I originally planned to release the game for $15 US, but cut the price in half because I decided to cut the “Story Mode” from the game at the last minute (I rather disliked it). So instead I made the Franchise Mode to fill the desire for extra content. Now that I am confident in the amount of content in the game, I will reraise the price to the original slated price.

I will of course be offering many generous discounts and promotions the future as well :) So there will still be plenty of opportunities to grab your copy at a great price.
