Hello everybody, I’m Mark McGinley and I’m the Senior Producer on what we believe will be the ultimate darts experience on any games console, Top Darts. The development team at Devils Details have been fully immersing themselves in both the sport and the Move Controller for several months now. We believe they’ve come up with something that’s not only true to the real game thanks to the precision of the Move Controller, but which is also a great deal of fun.
The game’s controls have been specially designed to take advantage of the three dimensional depth and precision of the PlayStation Move and the interaction between player and dart is better than any darts game you’ve ever played before.
When bringing the sport to the PlayStation 3 we wanted to ensure that the game was not only a challenge that rewards practice, but also a great game to play with friends. Top Darts combines a mix of classic Dart games, like 501, Around The Clock and Cricket, with extensive League & Cup competition modes, as well as a large selection of varied game modes. If competing against your friends is more your thing Top Darts allows up to 8 players to battle it out across a range of competitive games and events specifically tailored to enhance the multiplayer experience.
As well as catering for fans of more traditional Dart games, the game also offers a little bit of something different with a range of frantic simultaneous play games. This allows two players to play at the same time offering a very different Darts experience that, as far as we’re aware, has never been seen before
We’ll go into plenty more depth on some of the new game types and modes you might not be familiar with in our next blog update.
Coming to you in full 1080p high definition goodness with the legendary commentary of Mr Sid Waddell we think we’ll be on target to bring the oche to your living room when Top Darts releases exclusively on the PlayStation Store this Christmas.
I’ll be back with more information about the game in the next few weeks, so if there’s anything you’d like me expand upon or discuss further in future blog posts then please just comment below.
