We love a good tie-up and we’re pleased that we’ve been able to work with the legendary Bitmap Brothers on the DreadBall Xtreme Kickstarter to produce Weiss, a Speedball MVP based on the iconic Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe cover art.
NEW! Hector Weiss, Speedball MVP
DreadBall is the most popular sports game going, but it’s not the first to put players into a high-tech arena where violence is important as skill with a ball. Hector Weiss was a superstar Speedball player, a member of perennial underdog fan favourites Brutal Deluxe. He was at the peak of his game when the team’s Galactic Tour fell afoul of a deep-space anomaly that sucked him out of his cabin. As he blacked out, he thought it was all over, but he couldn’t have been more wrong. Waking up in a strange place where no one seemed to have heard of Speedball, he soon discovered the local equivalent and signed up to the first league available. DreadBall was everything he hoped for, a fitting showcase for his skill and showmanship. He just needed to find a vendor selling ice cream and it would be like he never left home…
Speedball is a fantastic sci-fi sports video game with origins dating back to the 80s, loved and revered by many, including our own Curis Webb, who has spent all of his time preparing for the Xtreme Kickstarter by playing it on his iPhone. If you want to give the latest version a go you can download Speedball 2 Evolution from the Apple App Store or Speedball 2 HD for PC on Steam!
There’s no stretch goal for this miniature, we’re simply making him available so that you can add him onto your pledge for $10, and he’ll come with rules and stats to use him in game. If you’ve got friends who just want the mini they can choose the Disorder level and just pick up the mini for $10!
Oh, and Frenzy backers get Weiss for free!
Please help us spread the word with this guy – tell everyone! Blogs, Facebook, Twitter… we want the world to know that Weiss is here on the DreadBall Xtreme Kickstarter!
