Big Match Striker gets Cauliflower ear: dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip’s new single kicks off ‘in game’ music player in new free-to-play downloadable football game

Press Release   •   Oct 15, 2010 11:53 BST

Supermassive Games™ today unveils ‘Does It Offend You, Yeah’s?’s slamming, electro-rave remix of the incredible new dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip hit single ‘Cauliflower’ as the opening track on Big Match Striker (www.bigmatchonline.com).

With the added functionality of the in-game ‘Big Tunes’ music player, Big Match Striker players can stream and buy tracks from Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best Recordings - one of the UK’s most highly respected and fastest-growing indie record labels - without leaving the game.

Boasting the perfect soundtrack to accompany the fast-paced game play, players can listen to a feast of different music, including hip hop duo dub and big beat maestros Dub Pistols, electro wizards Grand National and much-hyped Lucky Elephant, plus many more top-class contemporary artists. The game is updated with a new track from Sunday Best Recordings each month, keeping players up to date with the latest releases from the label.                                         

Big Match Striker challenges players to combine all the skills of chairman, manager, player and fan, resulting in an innovative game that blends football management strategy with animated trivia game play.

Geraint Orchard-Bungay, Supermassive Games™ Online Publishing Director, said: “We set out to create a unique, superior experience for Big Match Striker players. With the ‘Big Tunes’ player and undisputed quality of the Sunday Best soundtrack, this is a different class of free to play game.”
