Description

Skorecery is a fast-paced local multiplayer sports-like set in a tournament of mystics. Players engage in a contest of reflexes and split-second decision-making to protect their runes and destroy their opponent’s. Different spells, modes, and curses force players to stay on their toes and face overcome new challenges every game!

History

Skorecery started out as a class project at Northeastern University. Probably the simplest way to boil down the inspiration was that we wanted to build a multiplayer game all about ricocheting shots. Bouncing shots off of walls and scoring goals. Capturing that cool factor of playing mini-golf when a ball bounces off a wall or rock and goes in. What if we had a game that was like that all the time? So we started sketching some ideas of what that would look like, and one million iterations later, here we are.
