Sportsfriends Release Date







A compendium of four joyfully fun local multiplayer games for Playstation 3 and home computers.

We're four game developers -- Douglas Wilson, Ramiro Corbetta, Bennett Foddy, and Noah Sasso -- joining forces to release Sportsfriends, a compendium of four highly acclaimed local multiplayer games:

Johann Sebastian Joust


Pole Riders

BariBari Ball

All four games are accessible, spectator-friendly, and deeply replayable. They already exist as playable prototypes, and have been exhibited around the world at festivals and parties. They've received a bunch of honors and awards, including three IndieCade awards and the Innovation Award at the 2012 Game Developers Choice Awards. Most importantly, we know they're super fun.

Sportsfriends takes some our favorite aspects of popular sports playful competition, performance, and spectatorship and makes those elements more palatable to a broader game-loving audience. You don't have to be a sports fan or even a fan of sports games to enjoy Sportsfriends.
