Techland lets pets loose on the football pitch

Fresh from completing Pet Racer, an anarchic cartoon racing game featuring a variety of bizarre looking animals, Polish developers are back with Pet Soccer. Yes, we can reveal today that the Pets are set to become an entire franchise, and their latest excursion takes them on to the football pitch. Included are twelve pet teams - including dinosaurs, wild boars and other things you wouldn't really class as "pets" - each with their own strengths and weaknesses. We can only hope that their goal keepers don't take to marking their territory during half-time. As in Pet Racer, the animals won't always play fair, and you can count on the referee to turn a blind eye to any transgressions (or more likely to stand on the sideline goading you on). Throw in different pitches for each team, bizarre match commentary and a variety of inclement weather conditions to deal with, and you have a soccer game which is about as far from the FIFA series as you can get while still including a round ball somewhere in the proceedings. It's certainly an .. er .. interesting idea. Related Feature - Pet Soccer screenshots
