What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“A few words from Pablo Cerrutti, Art Director in Purple Tree.

"Football is definitely about teamwork. It doesn’t matter if you’re on the field or play it on console sitting with your friends on the couch. It is always about being together and just having fun. This is why we decided to hit Early Access on Steam. This is also a kind of teamwork, creating the game with other people who love football games. I do believe ’90s Football Stars can strongly benefit from such community feedback and I’m looking forward to getting to know what people think about our game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will soon share more detailed timeline with you. However, if all goes according to plan, we plan to release full version in first half of 2019.”

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

“The Early Access version of the game will include the following elements:

• 1 stadium with 5 weather conditions
• Three game modes: quick match, World Cup, International ranking
• Up to 4 players (offline matches)
• 6 languages: English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese and Polish
• 32 national teams

Full version will additionally contain:

• Gameplay adjustments based on Early Access community feedback
• 20+ additional teams
• online multi-player mode (up to 4 players)
• Locker mode - hire new managers, unlock unique balls, legendary snickers and jerseys
• Captain mode - Select your favorite player and focus on his characteristics and career in unique story mode.
• Unique footballers' hair-cuts from the '90s
• Vintage achievements to unlock

We will be releasing further details on in-game content to be added later on as the Early Access progresses.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment, this is an early beta version of the game in a good, stable condition. Of course, the game lacks some mechanics that will be added later on during early access and after the premiere.

One of the most important feature in this first version is the ability to play up to four players in offline multiplayer. Another cool feature already available is International Cup Mode - don’t forget to add points to your country on the International Ranking Mode too!”

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

“After the premiere the price will increase. We will let you know soon about our price policy.”

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

’90s Football Stars contains a deep analytic system that we will use to improve the gameplay. So, you will help us even if you just play the game! We are also open to hear from you about legendary managers and teams you would like to see later in the game. We are also very curious about your opinion on gameplay mechanics.

Just after we launch EA we will definitely create special topic at Steam forum to gather your feedback.”

“Purple Tree and Klabater want to take fans back to the glorious period of football when two-footed tackles were applauded, stadium atmospheres were buzzing and Sensible World of Soccer was the next big thing, with their upcoming game, ’90s Football Stars!”
The Xbox Hub

“'90s Football Stars is a extremely fast and dynamic game 2.5D, which takes place on small football pitches, and the judges completely don't notice to such irrelevant details as fouls or burned. Pure fun counts.”

“Escaping the usual and boring clichés seen way too often in recent football games, ’90s Football Stars boldly recalls the glory days of the genre, bringing back memories of cult classics like Sensible World of Soccer and International Superstar Soccer. All set in inspiringly bonkers atmosphere and retro art style of the ’90s.”
