MIAMI, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Introducing SMASH BALL a high-speed action sports game for PC, console and mobile released by gaming titan Game Pill, who has worked with over 100+ game titles for brands like Viacom, Disney, Discovery Networks, Google and others. SMASH BALL can be played with or against friends in a 1v1 / 2v2 hybrid of arcade-style ping pong, using customizable mech athletes. Destroy your opponents: launch rockets, throw sticky bombs, and choose your parts to suit your play style. Manage your team, resources, and booster cards to retain sponsors, grow your fan base and win. SMASH BALL allows smaller streamers to stand out and allows players to compete daily in tournaments that take place in 20 minutes or less.

With iconic characters like Iron Man, Kung Fu Panda, Barbie, SpongeBob and countless others, Game Pill realizes the power of talent comes with great ideas, so they scour for the best art, programming and design talent. As a team, they conceptualize, test and execute on top line ideas and iterate based on data. Founded by dynamic duo, Mike and VP Mary Sorrenti, the game strives to help players feel like they are athletes, similar to an F1 driver or professional may feel daily.

Mike previously worked for Warner bros and Paramount moonlighting in order to make more creatively challenging content. After branching off into a non-traditional journey to game development and producing out of his spare bedroom, he set out to become the 'cirque du soleil' of games to inspire and entertain players.

Mike says, "We used games as an escape and we would like to bring that same feeling of wonder to those who play to touch them with our creativity. We are looking for help from the small fish and provide a new game to play, grow their audiences and support them with tournament prizes for their viewers."
Game Pill's studio develops games as work for hire and co-development as well as original IP.
