    At the time of writing it is our intention to launch a Kickstarter project for the FHG on the 15th of March 2013, for a 30 day backing period (Target tbc).

    On this thread we will keep you up to date on the rewards we will be offering as part of our kickstater campaign. We'll keep a full list of the brackets and rewards on this 1st posts with updates being added in the thread as and when they are arranged/confirmed.

    At the moment we are in the process of confirming our first external rewards with Uber Hockey , Akuma Hockey and possibly OBO.

    We will also be using this thread to explain what we'll be aiming to do with the funds we raise and what we can accomplish with our stretch goals should we achieve them.

    Are there any rewards you would like us to try and get? OBO key rings? A custom FHG evolution hockey stick?
    You let us know and we'll do our best to get it... but try to keep it realistic ;)

    The new OBO keyrings look good so that would be a nice prize I think. How much money do you need to gather during the kickstart and will the contributors get the finished game when it is done?

    Is there any progress on the player? Even though the models you have done are great it would be nice to see a player move around a little to get an idea on how good the graphics will be. I try to keep my expectations realistic but I see some people on here think it will be in the class of the recent fifa and nhl games.

    Player will be along shortly perhaps as early as the next couple of weeks. We kind of wanted to show the full goalie firstbut time is getting on... We'll see.

    Nearly all the backing brackets get the end result. Backing more will get beta access etc.

    Will it be like other kick starters with the different brackets, so what you get from donating is dependent on how much you donate???

    It will be exactly like that. We have yet to finalize the brackets but so far we have both Akuma and Uber t-shirts, stick grips and we are currently discussing doing some FHG hockey sticks. We will also be doing hoodies, copies of the game and early Beta access for the game and more to come.

    Hi Brandon,

    Effectively you will be invited to join our team at a motion capture facility/hockey pitch(if we are brave about the weather) to be rigged up with sensors and then asked to play out simple to more complex routines like individual skills, 1 on 1, positioning with an with out the ball. Drag flicking, hitting pushing slapping. Think of it as a training session but before you do any sequence you start in T pose.

    The data we capture will then be transferred to our models and used in the game. We have also invited a celebrity hockey player to join us in London, I can't release his name until we have confirmed he is available - but he may well be joining our E-motion backers in the same session. We may also model some of the player models on you as well that go in the game so we get a good mix of heights and faces.

    Hope that answers your questions if not fire away.

    Simon

    We've been working towards running our Kickstarter campaign for the past 4-5 months.

    If you have been following this project for any length of time you will have seen us regularly move back the date 4-5 times through April and May.

    The project has made lots of progress during this time but there always seems to be another good reason to wait. Ether it is Jamie Dwyer agreeing to be a model for our player model, or offers to help us out from members of the Happy Feet 2 rigging team.

    We are trying to enter talks with the FIH/KNHB regarding basing the full game on the 2014 World Cup. This would be a huge boost for us if we get a yes but we can't rush this and for the last 6 weeks that feels like that is what we have been doing.

    To that end we have decided to delay our campaign until the start of September. This will enable us to launch the campaign at the end of the Australian season and the start of the UK season, ensuring most of Europe is also actively playing competitive hockey!

    We expect to have a prototype to share with you through the Unity web player and we hope to have gained 1,000's more supporters on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

    We know this will be disappointing some of our fans but fear not - we will be running plenty of competitions and keeping you up to date with our progress!

    This will also enable us to get even more backing rewards organised ready for September!

    Kind Regards,
    The Field Hockey Game Team

    Project got cancelled half way through due to lack of interest! :(

    They have said they will learn from what happened and try again in 2014!
