At BraveYourself’s „Game of Drones“, football and drones clash.
Game of Drones is a minimalistic online indie game where two or four people defend their gate against the opponent drones and the ball.
It is done with a lot of love, high-tech and a team of two crazy developers.

Story behind the game:
Game of Drones was thought to be a very mini tiny Christmas hack only lasting two weeks. After playing a session of Rocket League, we did some drafts and concepts in the very cold and not so big appartment of Johannes Wolko in the center of Munich. Then suddenly we decided, we want to create a game just like Rocket League, but with drones and flying around. Should be done in two weeks or so. What a misjudgement.
In the following days after doing the Google Design Sprint for a week, the Designer Johannes C. Wolko and the Developer Max W. Aigner started immediately to design and develop the first prototypes with the Unity 3D Engine. The first versions of the drones were super difficult to navigate and looked really a lot more aweful than they do now.
it was almost impossible to control the drone with the first very indirect but physically correct drone control
In the second playable version, a couple of days later, we finally had a tiny networking multiplayer game with two drones that did not look too bad I would say. Also scoring a goal worked already.

Weeks and Weeks later after adding Steam Support, struggling with bugs and bad things, that could happen. We even received some job offers from big companies that we had to decline of course. After all that love and effort and watching Youtube videos of Jonas Tyroller, we finally came to this beautiful result (if you see room for improvement, please write us a message.
