Preview: I AM PLAYR
Whilst games like Football Manager give budding managers a chance to shine, and the likes of FIFA and Pro Evolution let you try your skills on the pitch, it’s not often that gamers are given the chance to experience the life of a superstar player in its entirety. Step forward, I AM PLAYR.
Working with the likes of Nike and Red Bull (as well as others due to be announced soon), I AM PLAYR is a brand new social football game designed to let you live the superstar life of a professional player through his own eyes - all played through your Facebook profile.
Designed and developed by WeRInteractive in association with Big Balls Films, I AM PLAYR is being described as:
…the only football game to let you live the life of a superstar striker. It’s about the football… About honing your shooting skills and stepping onto the pitch to score the hat trick that takes your club to glory… And it’s about the fame… Step off the pitch and blow your money on girls, glamour, boy’s toys and big nights out with the lads. Play it right and you’ll have a shot at becoming the most valuable player out there. Get it wrong and you’ll find yourself back in the boot room picking the mud out of someone else’s studs..
The game itself is currently in its closed beta stage of development, with a release expected in the near future. You can register your interest in testing the game by simply heading to http://iamplayr.com/ and clicking on the link provided.
