TORONTO, CANADA – SEPTEMBER 25, 2019 – Independent developer & publisher Blue Isle Studios in partnership with Virtual Basement announced plans to release a new fantastical competitive sports game today, Broomstick League, coming soon to Steam Early Access. In Broomstick League, players take to the sky to compete against other would be wizards from around the world in a fast paced, high flying, trick shot scoring, all-out battle for supremacy of the skies.
The first hands on playable of Broomstick League will debut at TwitchCon 2019, September 27 – 29 in San Diego, CA.
In Broomstick League players divide into teams and zoom across massive arenas atop their trusty broomsticks in an effort to grab the magical orb, outmaneuver other players and score a goal. Equipped with a broomstick and wand, players must hone their flying skills and use magic to dodge enemies, defend their goal and make extraordinary plays. Players compete against friends online and use a combination of fast reflexes, teammate assists and magical spells in an effort to become the champion by scoring in one of the two goals on their opponents. Broomstick League features endless combos of plays with no two matches ever the same.
Broomstick League is all about winning, with the added variety and excitement of aerial competition via broomsticks and targeted spell casting. Use the blink spell to teleport into position and the blast spell to knock the ball out of your opponent’s hands. Well timed casting can make the difference between a buzzer beating goal or a soul crushing defeat.
