Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Lunagames has unveiled their latest game Luna League Soccer, which will be made available for mobile devices and PC in the beginning of next year. The game is nearing completion, but Lunagames wishes to add extra features and turns to Kickstarter for additional investment. If the game is successfully funded, there are stretch goals in place that will add Mac, Linux and consoles as target platforms.
Luna League Soccer is an over-the-top game that takes inspiration from old arcade classics such as Nintendo World Cup (NES) and Mario Strikers (Gamecube). This game follows the basic rules of Soccer, but adds crazy power ups and magic attacks to the mix.
Players control one of 12 rivalling factions that are fighting for world domination. The game of Soccer is used as a means to overcome political stand-offs and avoid military conflict. Every two years there is a tournament that determines who will rule Luna for the next term.
"Luna League Soccer is our most ambitious project yet", said Jeroen Mol, Development Manager at Lunagames. "We have created a game that is already fun to play, but being able to implement some of our other ideas would be the cherry on the cake. We want to add story levels, online multiplayer and a tournament mode. Kickstarter enables the community to become part of this exciting project and we have developed amazing rewards for those who choose to back us".
Among the great selection of rewards available through the campaign, supporters can gain access to not only BETA playable code, but also the opportunity to pledge for an exclusive art-book, T-shirt and even have the chance to become part of the exclusive in-game All Star Backers team. This 13th faction will be especially designed after the likeness of Luna League Soccer's top three backers.

I have had a quick look of the press preview build of this (Android version) and I have to say that, though the controls aren't perfect, it's a lot of fun. Definitely one to watch!
