A fighting game that has only two buttons — and that only has one-hit kills. A fighting game dreamed up as a joke but now targeted for the pro fighting scene. A game that will be playable on PC, PS3 or by two players on one PlayStation Vita. The is Divekick.
It’s no joke. Except when it is.
I played it at PAX East in Boston and you can watch what ensued in the video above.
I dare say that everyone should play this game. Think two buttons are too few? As Adam Heart from Iron Galaxy says, “I don’t think it’s about buttons. The idea that depth has to be layered behind complexity is false. If you look at the board game Go, it’s one of the most timeless, ageless board games. There’s one move in Go and that’s ‘place the token on the board somewhere.’ The fun part of a fighting game for me is controlling my opponent, not learning crazy combos.”
Sadly, these controllers are just for shows like PAX East.
