Tape to Tape is a roguelite hockey game “where every choice matters.” Your task is to create and manage the ultimate hockey team while using losses to your advantage. The game is said to combine “modern precision with fast-paced, 90s-inspired action,” and features “a unique battle system in the form of a balanced simcade hockey experience.” The campaign supports co-op multiplayer for up to four players locally or via Steam Remote Play. Tape to Tape will release this April for PC via Steam.

Tape to Tape is the first game to be published by Null Games, a new developer-friendly indie game publisher announced today by GitHub founder Chris Wanstrath. “Null is part of a new wave of indie game publishers that put developers first,” said Wanstrath.

“By partnering with developers and offering great terms, we believe they’ll make better games in a more sustainable way. At the end of the day, this is really all about the games. We’ve seen what the developer-unfriendly, crunch culture produces. It’s time to see what happens when you treat developers and gamers with respect.”

Players who try out the public Steam demo are encouraged to share their thoughts and footage with the official Tape to Tape Twitter account. Be sure to check back for more hockey video game news and updates.
