You have to

Interact in real time during matches and play strategic cards.

Each girl has a Battle Go tablet where she plays games to deal with mental problems.

(turn-based game on a chess-like board)

IN DEPTH

Roller Drama is both a narrative and a strategic real-time sports game about five girls playing Roller Derby in an oppressive and surveillance-based society. In Roller Drama you are the mentor and coach of a Roller Derby girl’s team of five (the standard in-game team of one jammer and four blockers).

You have to:
  • Live coach during matches (real-time gameplay);
  • Try to be a spiritual, existential guide for this problematic team in their life between matches;
  • Deal with psychological hurdles using the “Battle Go” (turn-based game on a chess-like board), playing as one of the girls in turn).

Daily life in the game’s world is not easy; political and environmental problems interfere with complex personal lives. The game’s universe is a slightly altered perspective on today’s world, with the same problems but... more explicit. It’s a dystopia that talks about our present (© Terry Gilliam).
