Rust and Garry’s Mod developer Facepunch Studios has released a video for an early prototype game titled Deuce.
Deuce is described as “tennis crossed with Street Fighter”, and includes a short video showing the basic gameplay. Think of it as tennis with a few “special moves”, such as:
- Ice (freezes opponent on returning the ball)
- Tornado (Sends the ball flying in a random direction)
- Teleport (Switches the ball position mid flight)
You can get the full details on their developer blog, but there is still a long way to go. They are hoping to release weekly updates, but keep in mind this is just a prototype and not yet an officially planned release.
As a fan of sports games that turn basic sports concepts up to 11, such as NFL Blitz and MLB Slugfest, I’m actually pretty interested to see if this ever pans out.
