Goofballs is a physics-based local-multiplayer casually competitive soccer party game where players roll, dash, and ground pound to score goals. The game combines slapstick physics with arcade-style soccer and adds a twist: after a goal is scored, the ball, surface, and arena can change – during the game!
Play locally against friends or the A.I. in 1v1 and 4-player free-for-all matches. Players can choose from the preset Classic, Chaos, and Competitive game modes, or they can create their own unique gameplay experience in Custom mode. With 8 quirky ball types, 4 unique surface types, and a variety of unconventional arenas there are hundreds of possible combinations to play.
Development for Goofballs began in July 2019 when Yellow Card Studio, a team of 12 SMU Guildhall students, started the prototyping phase. Full production began in late August and the game was finished in early December.
