Backbreaker dev now working on ‘Icebreaker’ – BBC Report

NaturalMotion Games, the folks who brought you the enjoyable but slightly borked Backbreaker, are now working on Icebreaker, according to a BBC video profile.

If you watch the video profile (right here), you can see developers motion-capping hockey players, as well as the Icebreaker logo, projected very clearly on a developer’s work station.

Unfortunately, no official word has been passed on as to whether or not the game is real…but c’mon!

I’m all for realism in sports titles, and that’s why Backbreaker was pretty darn compelling. But, as a northerner, my love for hockey runs deep…and my $$ will follow.
