Oldetime™ Sports, Inc., the premiere interactive, historical sports gaming experience creator, today announced its February 4, 2013, premiere and kickoff of the groundbreaking, prizefighting video game, Oldetime Knuckle Up Kickstarter Campaign.
The Oldetime Knuckle Up Kickstarter video recently received raving reviews during Oldetime's private screening at Brooklyn's legendary Gleason's Gym. "The enthusiasm amongst reviewers, boxing industry, and gaming community for our game has been amazingly overwhelming," says Oldetime CEO and Co-Founder Jean Borgella. "We can't wait to share the game and our Kickstarter incentives, ranging from Going the Distance (an exclusive complimentary pre-launch game download) to Knock Out (having a character made in a supporter's image), worldwide. We truly appreciate everyone's invaluable support."
Before there was Mixed Martial Arts or an Ultimate Fighting Championship, there was Bareknuckle boxing. No gloves, no enforcement, and plenty of blood! Set in the 16th through 19th century, Oldetime Knuckle Up pits gamers to square off in one-on-one matches. For the first time, players will experience the same brutal intensity and "no holds barred" rules under which historic fearless, tenacious, and bold to the core sparrers like Bareknuckle greats John L. Sullivan and Tom Cribb fought.
Each character is brought to life by authentic voiceover dialects, facial/body/personality back-stories, and a motion capture mixture of boxing, wrestling and mixed martial arts (without the kicking). Immediately you are thrown in the fray to raise and thrust your fists for money. Oldetime Knuckle Up, a pure game of skill, gives you a chance to beat or be beaten at the mercy of a spirited or unforgiving crowd, while enduring some of the most realistic and gruesome fighting conditions.
You must expect the unexpected! Your decisions not only change your fighting style, appearance, power, and speed, but also whether you encounter a quality or bribed handler, earn game perks, or win over a patron to cover your stakes toward becoming their hero - fighting for America, England and Australia championships. Putting on a good show for your spectators can be as important as winning your match. Are you ready to let your showmanship influence your rise to the gore and glory?
"From the conceptual and marketing phase to the media and PR campaigns, we have been lucky enough to be involved in the process leading up to this amazing launch," shared Oliver Cassagnol, SSAS® Enterprises LLC Director, Assistant General Counsel, "Even in its pre-BETA stage, the game combines strategy and action with realistic movement and stimulating graphics in a format unseen in the industry today. It should definitely be a Top Kickstarter Project."
