The Foundation of our Football Video Gameby calbert anderson on 07/29/16
Just to keep all of you apprised as to what we are shooting for in our development efforts of this football video game. Conceptually, I want this to be more of like the old strategical football board games back in the day with 3D moveable graphics. Although the game will be controller based, we also want to make it very “coach” centric for those who enjoy using their minds versus their stick skills.
Personally, I enjoy playing both types of games but I especially enjoy the challenge of out thinking someone. The cerebral side of football is something that tends to get lost in football video games these days. You have individuals out there who continually use various exploits and “money” plays just so they can dominate others on/offline but when those same individuals play against someone that out thinks them, someone who plays football in a realistic manner, they abruptly disconnect or flat out quit. I know, I have played against these individuals, which is why I do not choose to play online anymore.
This is why our game will have only one skill level. I don’t really know how this will work out but we are going to try it. If it doesn’t work we can always change it. Besides, I do not have a board of directors or “suits” to relegate what I can and cannot do. That’s the beauty of indie development. No Restrictions! There are a whole lot of folks out there who are rooting against us. I’m well aware of that. Those are the individuals who say they want change but do not want to lose their cushy benefits with the big companies to enforce it.
We will in fact, enforce change even if it’s to a smaller audience. For to plan and start something and put action to it, is way better than to just think about something, never take action and/or attempt to bring it to fruition. We are already 12 months into our development cycle for this video game. A lot of people didn’t think we would make it this far! Well, we are still here and still grinding! Our football game will be a very different experience than anything on today’s or yesterday’s market as many of you will soon see. It’s not all about the customizations, animations or even gameplay. Although those things are the foundation of our game, it’s much bigger than that. Stay tuned.
