What is this? This is Stray Robot's entry into the the TIGSource Sports Compo (originally started for FTJ). It's multiplayer async turn based 'ball sport' game where the turns are resolved simultaneously.

Explain yourself! We decided to take a sports game and completely abstract it into a series of player radii, vectors, and symbols. Removing the celebrity, the real time twitch element, complicated rules and controls, and all traditional sports imagery and reducing it down to a pure concentrated turn based tactical feast. Because underneath all the sponsors, bravado and idols, team sports have a true tactical core. While we haven't been able to nail it, this prototype shows some of the potential and displays real fun even with a basic implementation.
