BIG BITE GAMES CHALLENGES THE PRESS AT GDC 2013 – JOIN US FOR AN EPIC LIVE TOURNAMENT AS SOCCORAMA APPROACHES LAUNCH

Copenhagen, Denmark – March 13 th, 2013 – The future of Facebook games has balls! Independent studio Big Bite Games is challenging GDC attendees to a match throughout the show. Think you can beat our CEO at his own game? Come by our stand at GDC Play, Kiosk 37, and compete in our live tournament. To make it fair (we don’t think anyone can beat us), we’ll draw prizes amongst all the participants at the end of the show.

Soccorama is the first 3D synchronous multiplayer football (that’s soccer for the Americans) game on Facebook. The game features fast-paced arcade gameplay, where gamers can play online against 1-to-19 opponents in the same match. Its unique manager side allows players to unfold their creativity by customizing the footballers’ appearance and influence match gameplay by tweaking their individual stats, creating custom formations and set pieces, as well as buying a variety of boost items. The game will launch on Facebook in the coming months and is currently in an Open Beta: http://apps.facebook.com/soccorama

“Since playing classics such as Sensible Soccer and Kickoff ages ago, we’ve always wanted to recreate that arcade feel. Games like FIFA and PES keep on pushing for more realism, but we are aiming for that quick football fix, in a game that’s easy to pick up - but difficult to master. We are gamers and football fans ourselves, and we’re trying to go back to the roots with a modern twist.” said Sebastian Warnez, Co-Founder and CEO of Big Bite Games. “We recently announced our partnership with Zynga and this is hugely important to us because we want the world to play Soccorama, a game we hope will change the way Facebook games are perceived. You won’t be seeing any payment walls in our game: it is and will always be free to play, for anyone willing to spend their time playing.”

We want to invite the press to come and try the game first hand - so come by our booth, say hi to the developers, and see if you have what it takes to be a football star! We will most likely be all over the place, with many meetings scheduled, so to make sure we meet, please reply back to this mail so we can book a slot. We’re more than happy to accommodate the press for interviews, preview accounts packed with cash, or just to have a chat about why American football just isn’t as cool as European football.
