despelote is a first-person exploration game about the universal language of soccer and the ways it can bring people together, or push them apart.

Run, pass, and play with dozens of charming, hand-drawn characters in a unique world inspired by the street parks of Quito, Ecuador.

The game consists of three “days,” with each one taking place at a different phase in the player’s life. As you get older, so do the characters in the world around you. Your interactions with them, as well as your relationship to soccer itself, change dramatically with time.
