Get SOCIABLE with SENSIBLE Jon at PLAY Expo Blackpool

Replay Events are incredibly pleased to announce that PLAY Expo Blackpool will be hosting the world’s first hands on session with Tower Studios’ Sociable Soccer.

Sensible Soccer and Sensible World of Soccer have been held up as some of the greatest football games since they first appeared in the 90s. Now developer Jon Hare is ready to show the world the recent reboot; Sociable Soccer.

jon-hareWe are delighted to give all of the attendees at PLAY Expo Blackpool a hands on sneak preview of Sociable Soccer. It really is the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer…super-fast football fun.” Jon Hare.

The game will be available to play at PLAY Expo Blackpool on both days, including tournaments for everyone to take part in. Players will go head to head in 3 minute matches with over 1000 teams to choose from. The finals will be overseen on stage by Jon himself.


As if this isn’t enough, Jon Hare will be joining us on Sunday to talk about everything from Sensible Software to Sociable Soccer and to answer your questions in a Q&A session. Jon needs no introduction and is one of the best known veterans of the video games industry.


Jon was one of the founders of Sensible Software in the 1980’s along with Chris Yates and they created a number of highly polished titles for the C64 including Parallax, Microprose Soccer and Wizball all featuring music by musician Martin Galway who joined the team in 1988. They continued to produce successful games during the 16 bit era and Mega Lo Mania, Cannon Fodder, WizKid and Sensible Soccer all achieved critical acclaim.

Sociable Soccer has been created by a team of developers who have worked on projects like Quantum Break, Max Payne, The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land and Minigore. Over 10,000 researched player names will be in the game, though all teams are edible allowing players to customise and create their ideal team to play with in online multiplayer mode and working their way through the clan-based leagues.
