Description

SpiritSphere is a local multiplayer game that draws inspiration from classics like Zelda and Windjammers and mashes it together with the nostalgic feel of playing air hockey at your local arcade. Challenge your friends to an exciting one-versus-one battle or train your skills against the computer in singleplayer mode.

History

SpiritSphere's concept came together by a series of circumstances. Aug 8, 2015 the GameboyJam (GBJAM) gamejam started, with the goal to create a game based on gameboy limitations in just 10 days. Eendhoorn's entry was a top-down rpg called Dungeon of Trials. Where players need to traverse through procedurally generated dungeon rooms, with the difficulty increasing with each room. One of the dungeon rooms contains a pong esque mini-game game. A few days after the jam I went to an arcade and played some air-hockey, it was great fun. The idea to grab the top-down rpg game and mash it up with air-hockey crossed my mind, and SpiritSphere was born!
