Roadmap for year 2010
We have set a target date for the first demo to the end of the January (31.1.2010). It means that all of you can get a first real touch how the game feels and where we stand with the player animations and controls at the moment. The demo will contain a free training mode and a simple penalty-shootout mode. Most of the advanced and cool features (like tricks) will however remain disabled, because they are still under heavy development.
Once all the animations are in place and we'll get the gameplay and graphics more polished, a gameplay demo will be released. It means that you can actually play a partial exhibition game and get familiar with the gameplay. The exact release date for the gameplay demo will be informed later, but at the moment it is scheduled to summer 2010.
Final version of the game will be released in December 2010. This will happen at the same time the WFC 2010 is held in Finland. The content of this version is still partially unclear but it will be decided on early February 2010, after the first demo.
We also had a successful meeting with IFF representatives & Finnish Salibandyliiga. We're happy to announce that with the help of IFF, we will be able to provide full license for all of the teams playing in WFC 2010.
While eagerly waiting for the first demo & gameplay videos, we would like to present you some new screenshots of the game. Most of the graphics have been recently replaced with new, better ones but we're still missing a lot of important things from here and there. Hopefully we're able to push at least some of them to the first demo.
Best Xmas wishes from the FBL development team!
