Top Down Soccer/Football game with SFML and BOX2D
« on: December 29, 2021, 03:18:54 am »
Hey! I wanted to share with you my project, it's a soccer game with total control. I've always felt that mainstream soccer games (FIFA, PES) lack control over what you do, meaning, where you kick is approximate, your passes are approximate, etc. Also I've never found a soccer game that really does what I want it to do. Natural Soccer is good but not exactly what I want. Sensible Soccer is great but very limited.

So... I decided to try to do it myself. After 18 months of developing this is the current state. There's a lot to improve but I think it's going in the direction I want. A lot (I mean a lot) of develompment went (and still goes) to the handling of the players, it's 80% done. Art is basic, a lot to do there. AI is basic also, I will re do it, I'm still learning about AI.

This is awesome, is there a demo to try, are you planning to release it on a platform like Steam ?

Thanks Sk, no demo yet, probably in the next few months there will be one. I'm planning on releasing it on Steam, yes. Hopefully sometime in 2022. You can follow news on twitter: @guido_ion

Wow, are you using 2D or 3D rendering?

I'm using 2D rendering, To simulate depth I calculate the height of the ball by code and I add the shadow accordingly and I added a simple shadow for the players.

Hi,

liked your video.
Just an idea to make the gameplay instantly more satisfying could be to trigger sounds for goals and missed goals / saves (from the player's perspective), e.g.,

https://www.videvo.net/royalty-free-sound-effects/goal/
Ambiance: "Soccer 18"
Goal: "Cheering Crowd 03" (or mix/vary multiple ones)
Miss: "Sweden Crowd"

Really like the ball sound effects already, though.

Of course, any other source could work, too :-)
