Heavy Element's game "Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball" launches Spring 2024. In the splash panel at the top of this page, we see the Dudelings logo as well as two characters from the game jumping through the air.


Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball is one of those rare, genre-defining titles that spawns many imitators, but has yet to be bested. The genre? The "Sportslike." Pit your Dudelings against each other in a frenetic battle for massive points in a way that vaguely resembles a real-world sport where you touch grass and stuff.

Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball delivers that fast, arcade sportslike action you crave.

Local vs.Local VS.

Taking cues from the games that inspired us as kids, Dudelings is a local multiplayer-optimized experience. You won't find any of the online-only DRM-laden shenanigans that AAA publishers foist on the gaming public. Nah dude. Two players. One TV. Head-to-head. On the sofa. Within punching distance of your opponent.

No lag, no ping, and no host getting an advantage...

Practice vs. AIPractice vs. AI

Dudelings includes a few AI competitors that can hold their own against even the most skilled players.

Not that fake GPT AI crap, either. Nah. This is the genuine article*.

The kind you can compete against and that doesn't lie to you.

Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball now available on Steam!

This isn't your dad's Pong... Or his foosball either. Maine's new media production company Heavy Element has released Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball for Steam Deck, Linux, and Windows PC on Steam and This genre-defining "Sportslike" throws players into the high-intensity world of athletics, but without the bumps, bruises, and baseless attacks on late night talk show hosts. Get the ball in the hole. That's what most sports boil down to, right? (We don't know. We're asking.) In this hyper-competitive game, up to two players use the dudelings on the field to jump and hit the ball into the opposing team's goals, hoop, or over the net. Bask in the glory of 16-bit-style victory. Wallow in the sadness of defeat. Or just punch the nearest dudeling to you because slapstick will always be funny. We don't care how you play the game, just as long as you're enjoying it.
