Gyrodisc Super League launches in Early Access on March 4th!

The 90s… Best remembered for the dawn of the internet civilization and MC Hammer’s trousers… But Valiant Interactive remember it differently. They recall a heyday of couch multi-player gaming where groups of like-minded individuals could gather around a heavily pixilated screen and scream at one another for almost no discernable reason.

We lived in a world where plumbers really saved princesses, hedgehogs broke the sound barrier on a daily basis and gaming with your friends was a chance for playful retribution for long-standing injustices - and pizza - in whatever order seemed convenient at the time.

Inspired by the legacy of games like Windjammers, Bomberman, Mariocart and many more, we have created Gyrodisc Super League - a lightning-fast futuristic sport that’s a blend of air hockey, tennis and volleyball. The rules are simple – Think Pong on Acid… Victory is seized by quick reactions and the sort of devious mind games that reveal the true nature of those people you used to call friends!


Features
  • Fast-paced local multiplayer: Compete with your friends in thrilling competitive versus matches for up to 4 players, or add AI opponents to get in some much needed solo training. We plan to add new game modes throughout early access, including an arcade style story mode, and mini games!
  • Singles and doubles gameplay: Take on your opponent solo in classic singles matches, or battle it out in teams of two in hectic doubles games, where a combination of individual skill and team tactics will win the day.
  • Choose your character: Choose between two unique player characters, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and a powerful signature throw. More player characters will be added throughout Early Access!
  • Choose your Arena: Select from 5 distinct court setups at launch, with their own arrangement of goals, score boosts and obstacles that change the layout of the Gyrodisc Super League Arena. New courts and arena environments will be added throughout Early Access, allowing you to mix and match the visual and gameplay style of your matches.


Gameplay
  • Using all the moves at your disposal is key to victory in Gyrodisc Super League!
  • Run, dive, catch and throw to keep the disc out of your goal and send it soaring towards your opponent’s. Lob the disc over your adversary’s head to catch them off guard.
  • Throw the disc the instant you catch it for a high-speed perfect return. Chain perfect returns together and the disc gets faster and faster!
  • Advanced moves including looping curved throws and wild special throws. - Use these tools together to wrong-foot your opponents and keep them guessing!
