Video game football is about to get yet another contender, this time with a decidedly specific bent as tongue twisting developer Nerjyzed Entertainment has announced Black College Football Experience or BCFx if the former grows to tiresome. The Unreal Engine 3 powered college football game brings together three historically black college and university conferences, including some 40 teams for "an incredibly fun football game for the whole family to play."
So what is the Black College Football Experience? As a lily white dude whose closest hands-on experience with such a thing was flipping past a FAMU game once, I'll have to wait for the PC release to find out. Based on the press release, it's apparently not only football, but halftime shows, too, as you'll "step into the boots of a drum major" for an interactive battle of the bands. Hey! I like rhythm games, too!
Far more details are available at the Nerjyzed site, but a handy press release follows.NERJYZED ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES BLACK COLLEGE FOOTBALL VIDEOGAME: BCFx
