Remember that scene in the movie Dodgeball where the old guy says, “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball”? Playdius and the developers behind the new Strikers Edge took that to the next step. Rather than balls (or even wrenches), players take control of great warriors and chuck spears, shoot, arrows, and try to literally destroy their opponents.
Designed to deliver the ultimate “Dodgebrawl” battle experience, Strikers Edge features a roster of eight ancient warriors from different eras and civilizations ready to enter the fray. Dodge, take cover, aim and scorch the earth with devastating moves! When medieval fantasy meets dodgeball, only the top Striker will be victorious in online or local multiplayer battles.
In addition to online and local multiplayer battles, Strikers Edge also offers aspecial Twitch Mode exclusively for Steam users. Simply activate the streamer mode in the options, start the stream, and invite your audience to mess with your match by choosing from a variety of modifiers and perks that spice up the gameplay.
To celebrate the upcoming launch, two Twitch live streams will take place during Strikers Edge’s last Steam Open Beta session. Players will be invited to brawl the Fun Punch Games team, and the Beta testers’ win ratio will determine the release promotion on Steam!

I’m not going to lie, I’m not jazzed by the 8-bit graphics, but the game looks like a frantic and crazy good time, so I’m willing to give this one a solid shot regardless.
Look for this one January 30th on PS4 and Steam.
