Final 48 hours for Breakaway Football on Kickstarter

Alright folks, we are approaching the finish line… or rather, time is running out and the finish line is way up there, in the distance, mocking us with its seeming unreachableness. However, whether we are able to sprint forward and break that metaphorical tape, or are left staring, forlorn, at the rear ends of so many successful Kickstarters before us, we are extremely grateful for the support you have shown us thus far. And either way, it is far from the finale for Breakaway Football!

We have learned a ton in the last 28 days, both about our game and our approach to funding, and plan to apply this knowledge to each in the future. These last couple days may be quite frantic or completely anti-climactic, but we feel the product will be much improved when (not “if”) it reaches you, dear readers. If that means re-launching this campaign next year, then so be it. The Uplink Underground is proud of this game, and look forward to making it properly for you all when the time is right.

So stay strong, friends of the revolution, as we make this final push toward that fateful day (noon on Friday, October 28th). We will continue to work to make this game, and all our endeavors, as entertaining as possible. And we hope that you will continue to come along for the ride…

Cheers, and thanks!

Kickstarter for Breakaway Football off to a great start

After one week, the Kickstarter campaign for Breakaway Football is around 25% funded! Definitely looking forward to delivering this game to all our amazing donors. Of course, we’ve got a long way to go and a long time to get there (23 more days!), so now is no time to rest on our laurels.

That said, we are extremely happy with the support we have received from all you good people who believe in our vision for this game, and beyond. And for those of you on the fence about backing this project, there is no time like the present to join. The revolution needs you!


Breakaway Football Kickstarter campaign is LIVE

Uplink Underground Games proudly announces the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to produce our very first board game: Breakaway Football. The culmination of 9 months of design, development, and testing, this endeavor is finally ready to take the gaming world by storm. We here at the Underground are convinced this is the finest football coaching simulator to ever hit the tabletop, and believe you will agree.

Take a look for yourself (demo video here). Combining strategic coaching decisions with the full range of real-world football outcomes, determined by a simple yet innovative game mechanic, Breakaway Football offers a fun, lively play experience for avid gamers and football fans alike. Casual gamers will enjoy the ease of play, while football purists will appreciate the attention to detail. And who amongst us wouldn’t enjoy the chance to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women….

Sorry, I got carried away… and maybe this game isn’t quite so dramatic as Conan might prefer, but it is one heck of a good time. So go forth and check out our campaign, share the good word with your friends, relatives, coworkers, neighbors, that guy at the coffee shop, the woman sitting next to you on the bus right now… whomever! We would greatly appreciate your support in bringing this game to life. We can’t do it without you, and are quite certain you will not regret it.

And remember, this is only the beginning. The Uplink Underground has many more entertaining and innovative plans in the works, and cannot wait to share them with the rest of the world. We hope you will come along for the ride. (Click HERE to pledge!)
