The game that won our Jimmy Gem milk carton award, finally releases some news. It's coming out this spring for the PS3, PS Vita, and PC. No word on XBox or pricing.

Here's the full press release.

DIVEKICK TO DEBUT IN SPRING 2013
Iron Galaxy Studios announces plans to release the one true fighting game on numerous platforms

CHICAGO – January 22, 2013 –Iron Galaxy Studios is teaming up with One True Game Studios to release Divekick, a unique fighting game available in spring 2013 for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system and PC.

Initially developed as a parody of fighting games by Adam Heart, the Editor-in-Chief of Shoryuken.com, Divekick gained notoriety in the community for its surprising depth and lack of a control stick. Divekick’s two-button controls and precise timing soon made it a staple in competitions. Shortly after its debut to long lines at Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 8 in May 2012, Heart wanted to bring the game to a wider audience and launched a Kickstarter campaign in June 2012 to finish its PC release. The campaign reached its funding goal in less than one month.

After seeing the success of Divekick’s Kickstarter campaign and the excitement generated at fighting game tournaments, Iron Galaxy fell in love with the game and offered their assistance and development expertise (Street Fighter III: Online Edition, Marvel Vs. Capcom: Origins, Darkstalkers Resurrection) to bring Divekick to a broader audience and help realize its full potential. The fully-funded Kickstarter was cancelled, and the new collaboration has resulted in the game being equipped with GGPO-powered online support, a fully-fledged single-player campaign, and many other features.

“Once I played Divekick, I knew I had to steal it from its creator and reap the benefits for myself,” said Dave Lang, President of Iron Galaxy Studios.  ”I look forward to seeing Divekick Cyber Athletes on cereal boxes in the near future.”

One True Games Studios is led by fighting game experts including Adam “Keits” Heart. “Divekick is good at two things: teaching some of the basics of fighting game to players of any skill, and ending friendships. I partnered with Iron Galaxy because I know they love these things as much as I do.  They also gave me large burlap sacks filled with cash, which certainly didn’t hurt,” said Heart. ”This game was made by the community, for the community, to completely tear apart the community.”

Iron Galaxy began as a small team of industry veterans working out of their basements in 2008, and has grown into a fifty person technology powerhouse with studios in Chicago and Orlando. With multiple titles shipped across all current console, PC, and mobile hardware, our clients and partners rely on Iron Galaxy’s expertise and track record to execute their most trusted brands.

DiveKick gets a publisher and cancels the Kickstarter program. What does this mean for people who pledged money?

The DiveKick Kickstarter just reached the $30k goal recently, but has now been canceled. Why? Well because the game has been picked up by a publisher. No word on which publisher picked up the game or any new details on the release. All pre-orders have been canceled from the Kickstarter program and you will not be charged any money. However if you did pledge money, you're still going to be rewarded for being an early supporter. 

From OneTruGame:

One True Game Studios would like to thank everyone for their offer of support, but we have decided to close the Kickstarter despite reaching our funding goal. The reason for this is simple:  the spirit of Kickstarter is as a creative “last resort,” if there is no way to get your game funded, hit up Kickstarter to see if there’s enough community interest in funding it. Well, we are happy to inform you today that we've made a deal with a publisher to help us both finish and release Divekick to the masses! The finished game will be loaded with features and characters, and we are sure you'll be pleased with the result. Keep your eye on OneTrueGame.com for updates.


Though we will be canceling the Kickstarter, and thus will not be taking your money, we are going to make good on most of your offers to back us. Though we cannot honor game pre-orders or mail out T-shirts without taking money in, we do want each of the 800+ of you willing to back our game to be able to have some ownership in it. Check below to see your specific backer level and in what way we will honor it, and then check your Kickstarter Private Messages and reply to us to get us the details we request concerning your involvement with the project.

Pledge Level 1 - $10 – Though we cannot honor a pre-order, we would like to thank you all by letting you suggest a “Tip From Uncle Sensei” for our loading screen.

Pledge Level 2 - $25 – Because we are letting people who pledged $10 submit a Tip, we are going to let anyone who pledged $25 or more suggest up to 3 “Tips From Uncle Sensei”.

Pledge Level 3 - $50 – This one is the trickiest. No matter what your pledge level, if you want to get your hands on one of these shirts, we are going set up a shirt-pre-order form (just for the backer shirt, not the game) where you can still get one at a massively reduced price. We don't care about the profit here, so they will be around 15 dollars + shipping and handling. Though anyone will be able to order a shirt, no matter what their pledge level, those who pledged $50 or more will have their names added to the special thanks section of the game's credits.

Pledge Level 4 - $100 – We don't take a dime, but you guys are generous as hell, so we'll drop your names in the special thanks and upgrade you to the $200 reward and let you add your own color pallet to the character of your choice, and you'll get to name the color!

Pledge Level 5 - $200 - You guys are super generous! We'll let you choose and name three color pallets each for the three separate characters of your choice.

Pledge Level 6 - $300 - In addition to the above, you guys still get to appear in a new background in the game. We'll still need photos of you to work from, and you'll need to sign some paperwork, but everything is a go!

Pledge Level 7 - $3000 – We love you guys. We've already discussed your playable character additions, though we haven't announced who they are. Fear not. You can keep your cash and we'll make your awesome characters anyway. We'll be in touch as that process continues.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you all again, and we hope to Divekick with you shortly.

Welcome Uncle Sensei to the playable roster! Has DIVEKICK lost its "it factor" or should I say its "Kick-Factor?" This was something shocking and new ... months ago.

From DIVEKICK developers:

This is an image of Sensei from the New Angle Dojo stage (in Bel Air).  He lives there, but Dive and Kick have recently discovered that their Uncle may not own the dojo!  Is he squatting there?!  Is their esteemed Uncle, former 10 time world DiveKicking champion, homeless?!

You'll notice that Sensei has slippers on his hands.  He only wears these during times of meditation.  In combat, the same boots you see on his feet also appear on his hands.  Sensei is truly the man who took tournament DiveKicking to the next level for over a decade until his extremely salty retirement.  Will he have his revenge?  Will adverse possession laws help him legally acquire the New Angle Dojo?  Will he ever stop the over-sized weasel that keeps stealing his cigars?
