Official Response: "Will there be a bloodless/censored version?"
Short answer: Kinda.

Long answer:
I will add the option to disable blood/fights ONLY in exhibition games and local-multiplayer, even though this partially defeats the purpose of the game and causes me unimaginable pain as an artist. These options will not apply to the story mode, which will contain violence (this shouldn't be a surprise). This is as far as I will go towards censoring the game. I don't know what the final version of the game will look like, so this is subject to change, and I can't promise other violent elements won't be added to the game.

I remember fights being great in Ice Hockey,,, do you have to remove those AND the blood?

I'm all for the violence and stuff... but in all honesty, from the trailer, it was a LITTLE over the top.

Maybe add a slider so we can have just a bit of blood (left side being none, and right side being guysers of blood everywhere)? Just an idea... But hey.. People love options, right?! :)

Looking forward to this game though! I've wanted a revised version of Ice Hockey since the original.

I will make them separate options, because turning off fights will actually alter the balance of the game a bit (makes enforcers a bit less valuable). I like the idea for a blood slider actually. :D

Thanks for the answer, Loren! I'm certainly keeping an eye on this project! :)

Not a problem at all! I always try to respond to every one :)

I'd love to have the blood slider too. Looking forward to some fights as well especially since you talked about the value of the enforcer which I agree with.

Great news! The blood slider is already implemented and working. You can turn the blood off, or turn it way up :D
Wow! awesome! :D Looking forward to trying it out

Thank you for the disable blood option. Btw, it's not about censoring the game for me, the reason I wanna turn it off is because I find it annoying. All you see is blood particles everywhere. I hope you will add that option in story mode as well or at least an option/slider to lower the amount of blood particles.

Anyway, I love Ice Hockey so I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this game! :)

Now when will we be able to play this game for real? :D

I`m with BumbleBeeTuna on this, the amount shown in the trailers is hyperbolic and appears to cause some cluttering. I don't need to have it removed, but I just don't appreciate gore for gore's sake, so I'll appreciate the option to reduce the amount of blood to something more "realistic" (for an arcade hockey game).

Well, actually I'm eagerly looking forward to playing this game, but not because of the violence. We've been waiting for a decent PC hockey game for too long, and I'm sure that this game is going to fill this void. I'm very happy that you are making this game, and I'm happy that there will be an option to turn the blood down. Thank you!

I'm all for violent games, but having blood like this seems like something that would have been cool circa 1992. I've always wanted a new NES Hockey, but the blood made it a swing and a miss.

There is a slider to disable blood, but I understand its not your cup of tea. Somewhat coincidentally, I sort of made this game as something that my childhood self would have wanted, and 1992 is just about the right year for that :D

I do feel confident saying there is more to the game than just a blood gimmick. I think the gameplay itself might surprise you :)
