It's already been a week for boring, say-nothing-at-all 15 second teaser trailers, so it's nice to see a trailer for a video game that's interesting, funny, original and actually shows a video game being played by a human being.
That's an interesting thing in this day and age.
The game is VIDEOBALL, the latest game by Tim Rogers and Action Button. Tim's last game Ziggurat, on iOS, was pretty fantastic. It was a game I enjoyed a lot. VIDEOBALL is more of a same screen sports game, but it does seems to share a few elements with Ziggurat, mainly the ability to charge up an attack and BLAM, have that attack be stronger than a regular attack.
Disclosure: Tim Rogers has written for Kotaku before. Interestingly, he spent time writing reviews of actual sports games for Kotaku, which turned out to be some of my favourite Kotaku posts ever. It's interesting to see that Tim's mind was in this space whilst making a video game that mimics some elements of actual sport.
I think this game looks great and I can't wait to play it.
