We’ve been pretty lucky in the world of mobile gaming to come across some truly excellent trailers over the years. There is the legendary 10 Balls 7 Cups trailer which is still the undisputed king in my book, and the Mad Skills Motocross/BMX series which has given us some truly awesome trailers as well. And I’m sure the list would go on, if I actually tried to think about it.
Anyhoo, today is a special day because we get to induct a new entry into the Greatest Trailers of All Time wing of the TouchArcade Hall of Fame. And when your video game is called Retired Men’s Nude Beach Volleyball League , you know you have to come correct with a good trailer. Thankfully, the game is the brain child of Will Brierly, the creator of Soda Drinker Pro, and Aaron Bleyaert, a generally funny person and also the host of Conan O’Brien’s “Clueless Gamer" series. Mash these two talented humans together, along with publisher Humble, and you get one extremely catchy and hilarious trailer for Retired Men’s Nude Beach Volleyball League. Feast your eyes upon it.
Ear worm alert, am I right? Love that tune. Retired Men’s Nude Beach Volleyball League is, yes, a volleyball video game, but its creators hope that it’s much more that. There’s a narrative tying it all together and, as anyone who has played Soda Drinker Pro would know, a bunch of other unexpected crazy stuff. While “silly" and “weird" are certainly good adjectives to describe the game, “heartfelt" might also be appropriate as Brierly and Bleyaert are hoping that the game will prompt those who play it to “give their grandparents or someone they love a hug and want to learn more about them." Yeah, be prepared to tear up a bit while playing the naked volleyball game.
Retired Men’s Nude Beach Volleyball League launches on PC today as a special bonus game for Humble Choice subscribers, and then this Friday it’ll be added to the Humble Trove selection of games as well. If PC gaming ain’t your thang, Brierly tells TouchArcade that he’s hoping the game will launch on additional platforms including mobile sometime down the line. I sure hope that ends up being the case because, I mean, Retired Men’s Nude Beach Volleyball League. Do I need to say anything more?
