Rocket League is a little indie game that you may have heard about. It has a great story behind its development, and since its release last year, has taken the world by storm on the casual and esports front. Danny O’Dwyer, formerly of Gamespot set out to document the origin story of one of this generation’s best titles.
For those still unaware, and who have stupidly failed to pick up the game so far, Rocket League is a team based soccer-car mashup. Use your vehicles along with boosts and jump-flips to score goals and defend your own. it is immense fun, and hours just fly by while you laugh away and make squirming sounds throughout the action, as your shots just miss.
The first part of the documentary covers the history of Psyonix and Rocket League, including a good look at Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, its previous iteration, and the second installment will dive into the creation and launch of the game.
Danny O’Dwyer set up his on Patreon funded endeavor called Noclip, with the aim to make documentaries about our favourite games. The Story of Rocket League is his first production, and it will go live on October 31st and November 1st.
Meanwhile, you can pick up Rocket League on Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Just don’t do VR. Let’s keep our food down.
