ENAMEL PINS! Limited run by Indie Section

Hey Folks,

The team at produced a limited quantity run of custom designed enamel pins featuring Super Blood Hockey. It comes with a copy of the game and a bonus goodie as well!

Get yours here:

I am honored that Indie Section decided to include Super Blood Hockey in its collection. I have some of the pins myself, and I will say I am very pleased with how they turned out. They are of a good size and great quality.

I keep one on my disc golf bag!

One of the cool things about being a gamedev is that I can use my games to support cool projects that I believe in. The folks at Indie Section are making some cool stuff I am very happy to be able to play a part in it!

Bonus - Here is a special interview I gave about Super Blood Hockey:

Franchise Mode: Beta v1.5.3 - Bug Fixes + Balancing tweaks

Hi again folks,

Here is the latest build of the Franchise Mode. This one mostly contains bug fixes as well as some balancing and difficulty tweaks.

Note to Mac users: I have been having some issues with the Mac build. It seems the issue is related to something on the Steamworks side of things. I will be trying some new things with it over the next few days, if you have time, please give it a try and report your experience in the discussion forum.

UPDATE: The Mac port has been confirmed as working! :) Thanks to everyone who helped me get that issue sorted!

Thanks for the continued feedback!

  • Adjusted the effects the Robustness Stat had on injuries and such. Robustness is now a bit less effective at preventing injury.
  • Adjust the distribution of injury rates among players with Robustness 75+
  • Adjusted the rate at which the difficulty ramps up. Should get more difficult a little bit faster now.
  • Fixed a bug related to inmate death and task assignments.
  • Fixed a bug where the stats page wasn't properly tracking lifetime assists.
  • Fixed a bug where the trophies from one franchise would carry over into a new franchise.
  • Added more names to the credits.

CRUNCHY RETRO PIXELATED GORE! Experience brutality on ice like you've never witnessed before: blood splattering collisions, brain-scrambling head injuries, bloody vomiting spells and violent seizures.

MIND MELTING CHIPTUNE SOUNDTRACK! Enjoy the driving retro beats of an original soundtrack by chiptunist Shawn Daley.

4-PLAYER LOCAL MULTIPLAYER! Paint the ice with the blood of your friends!

GLOBAL SHOWDOWN! Take on the world in a global ice hockey tournament. Failure to secure victory for your nation could result in your execution.
