  1. After 2 years of development, Puck off skated its way on steam on May 13th to bring its own brand of rough and tumble no rules hockey on the frozen pond, think of it as Rock the Rink and the World of Chel turned on its head. its physics-based no holds barred hits and contact on ice gameplay it has, that other indie games like hockey? and slapshot rebound sadly is missing. The downside is that currently there is no online multiplayer and it requires a controller in order to play. so, also no keyboard support yet but has a challenging single player mode and you can play with your friends on remote play with up to 4 players for co-op or versus. You can check it out for yourself here:
  2. So last year, the creator of this game himself, Jason Gauci, has emerged with a insightful retrospect of his work on threadpool: https://threadpool.cc/undead-hockey-club-0-0-2-89eecdb7a2b3
  3. So, after a few days later... Tape 2 tape kickstarter had been successful funded. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tapetotape/tape-to-tape/posts/3509541
  4. Tape to Tape a indie game that's part hockey, part RPG, has just landed a demo on steam, so far there is no keyboard support yet, so it can only be played with controllers only. The developers are also looking for testers to playtest the game. here is a link to try the demo out for yourself. You can also play with 4 people via remote play: The game is aiming for a December release date of this year, but they also have a Kickstarter coming up so watch that prelaunch space as well https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tapetotape/tape-to-tape
  5. Colorful graphics and exciting intro music yet primitive sound effects and the teams are all red and green shirts. and the players of every team are named after Canadian political figures at the time. but the gameplay is identical to Konami's blade of steel.
  6. Like another love letter to the blades of steel hockey game with some 3 on 3 action? Then watch this space for Light the lamp Hockey going for a late 2022 release on steam.
  7. Ready to drop the gloves again at the Bush hockey league of the 70s this time on the road? https://www.terminals.io/games/bush-hockey-league-switch/news/3596?fbclid=IwAR2nziGcWCATu0oJaFSpVL72tD8GoPa7Uuu_IvF8yTQVHbd7CItrntn0IUk
  8. despite 2021 being over, i hope to make a thread that list every indie hockey game in a new topic, even the ones i went over and newer ones that are oncoming or released.
  9. I like the ideas you think up, maybe we should also create a nhl 94 rom but it replaces the player models with the ones from kunio-kun hockey game or create a nes rom hack for the captain tsubasa (or tecmo cup soccer game) game that replaces soccer with hockey. Anyways, sometimes a total conversion hack rom always deserve a creative facelift make over.
  10. This rom certainly getting somewhere to looking like a unreleased SNK hockey game. i wonder how much of the sprite work of the on-ice gameplay can be edited. specifcally, the players and the face off screen animation.
  11. I have came across this game couple of times on steam, looks rough around the edges and there is no gameplay video, but I am sure it will most likely improve. Thanks.
  12. Its kind of like thinking of it as NHL2k before NHL2k was a thing on the era of consoles of the Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox ERA. Of course i understand the gameplay is a mix of other hockey games, it has that top to bottom camera view, identical scoreboard and presentation, and 95 faceoff like the NHL games and the fight system reminds me of the one used in Mario Lemieux Hockey (Super Slapshot) and Wayne Gretzky Hockey NHLPA All-Stars. clunky as it is. it has pretty good sprite design and animations even for bodychecking and shooting, decent puck physics, nice sound effects, music, and including play-by-play commentary audio which is a detail some hockey games not even NHL games on the Sega genesis or snes console era had (with the acceptation of blades of steel on the nes).
  13. Ice league Hockey is out on the app stores, free to download, try for yourself, its fun but don't expect it to play like super blood hockey. Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koalitygame.iceleaguehockey… iOS: https://testflight.apple.com/join/IDKlMSa6
  14. Tape 2 Tape is on steam, Wishlist here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1566200/Tape_to_Tape/
  15. Puckoff is now on steam aiming for a next year release date on may 13, 2022. Wishlist it here https://store.steampowered.com/app/1765990/PuckOFF/ and join their discord for further developments: https://discord.gg/q4sDV5HycV
  16. Spacy Hockey added, thought the development went dead in 2020, the game spacy hockey (formally known as space hockey) re-emerged this year in September 18th with a new website and screenshots and is aiming for a stream release. keep an eye out on that space.
  17. Thank you, even though canvas hockey, is not a game that's in development this year, as its already came out last year, but with the game constantly getting updates. I will add it the thread showcase never the less. its a pretty interesting hockey game.
  18. In 2018, a user by the name of Super Roboprotector, made a hacked rom for Blades of steel, and adds a violent twist to the game, turning hockey into deathhockey or Deathmatch Hockey. Now what i mean by that, is that it does more then change team colors and names of the 8 teams but overhauls the gameplay and the a.i. to live up to the premise of its name. The AI of your team mates and the CPU team are even more ruthless and will not hesitate to knock anyone in their path with a full check or hit. they will also start fights more often and when a fight does happen, the HP of the player is increased to 8 rather then 5 and the indicator is invisible. But this is where the "death match" part of the rom comes in, instead of the defeated player getting dragged to penalty box, the player is left there on the ice and remains knocked out completely with a team down a man and playing short for the rest of the period and with the fights being kicked up to 11, the carnage will to continue rise with more K.O'd players of both team littering the rink to the point of one team ending up with no one but a goalie. It just might make you question if you are even playing Blades of steel or a homebrewed Mutant league hockey for the NES. Luckily all Knocked players will only get up during period changes sometimes one or two guys might get up if a team lost all if not almost-all of its players. Imagine adding all this concept in any NHL rom that allows fighting (preferably NHLPA Hockey '93) Not at all convinced? well no need to worry heres some gameplay video from the very same romhacker himself playing for the Scorpions taking on the Sub-Zeros. And just for you, a patched rom for to play for your self, as always this rom is by Super Roboprotector https://www.romhacking.net/community/4595/ He also did another BOS hacked rom called the Goon mod WIll you survive Deathmatch Hockey? Deathmatch hockey (patched).nes
  19. Added to the thread, Thank you for mentioning this game. indiegame hockey seems to booming recently.
  20. Hockey heroes: Puck off: Goons: Legends of the Hockeyverse Pond Hockey Simulator '84 Ice League Hockey: Tape to Tape: Pc hockey league: Canvas Hockey: Spacy Hockey: VNHL 2022 Got any other current indie Hockey games in the making to add to this thread? share them here in this showcase.
  21. Well i ofcourse talk about how most of the teams player sprites have the similar colors not just the away always being red and white, but how some of the home teams colors have colors that are identical to each other and not don't really correspond with their colors in their team logos. now if we can get this hacked rom to change the colors of the away and home team uniforms, this would make MLH look more like a complete game. Also i still wonder if its possible to code a demo mode or cpu vs cpu in the selection screen so we can watch both teams battle each other for the puck for a full game.
  22. So looking at the home team colors in the main menu, i kind of see the problem with most of the team player colors in the game, more so then just the away team being the red and grey the whole time. Infact, most of teams seem to have colors that are the same or don't really match up with the colors of their team logos, i don't think mutant league football had this problem. in certain sense it kind of made me think, mlh was rushed and not in a 2010 EA way either. hopefully this hack with fix that, the unreleased amiga copy kind of did.
