Steampackets 2006

With growing interest in the Steampackets the committee have been searching for ideas for new merchanside. On the back of this, and after many months of speculation and development, the following media statement has finally been released:

“We are very proud to announce the release of the computer game ‘Steampackets 2006’, available on Sega Master System, Nintendo Entertainment System and Commodore 64. We are hoping to release the game on PC, once we can get the Super VGA graphics sorted out.

“Gamers will be given the opportunity to play as their favourite Steampacket, both past and present. With almost 30 players to choose from, ranging from fully kitted out Atkinson to barefoot Vootukuru, as well as a choice of 2 pitches, this game is packed with almost endless variety. Our graphic artists have worked meticulously to recreate in every detail Steampacket Park, down to the orange cones, unexpected potholes and grumpy groundskeepers. Likewise, gameplay has been made as realistic as possible, and gamers will be able to develop their player’s skills in kicking, trapping, tackling, swearing and wading. This is, in every way, a truly immersive experience.”

“We are very excited about this,” said President Adrian Dillon in a pool-side interview. “We have been hoping to tap into the nerd community for a while, and this seems to be our ticket on the cash cow. Price will initially be very high to suck in those people that have to buy new things as soon as they are released regardless of the price. Then it will suddenly become “Platinum” for no good reason, which means the price will drop to $20 or so, and then in about 12 months we expect to see it in the bargain bins next to expansion packs of Diablo 2 and any Playstation Portable game… That recorder’s not turned on is it?”

If you would like to have a virtual kick of the virtual ball, then virtually come down the virtual Steampacket Park on Virtual Tuesdays and Virtual Thursdays.”
