Today I thought I’d write a bit about an upcoming Amiga game called the 1980′s Football Manager. The reason is that the author, who is also the guy responsible for the AmigaPD website (I’ve written a post about it here) by the way, is getting close to finishing his project.
What I find particularly interesting is that the game is actually set to the 1980′s. This means that you’ll find lists of players from this wonderful era of football, references to films and pop bands, as well as old pictures of cars and stadiums. This will be fun!
The author has listed the features of the game on his website. I’ve included them below for you to read:
- 4 Skill Levels
- Messages from the Chairman
- Player Agents
- Pre-Match comments
- Game Commentary
- Half time team talks
- Post Match Interview
- Bank Loans
- Stadium Improvement
Interesting stuff, isn’t it? Looking forward to put some extra effort into the corruption part, since I’m not that good at football. Anyway, let’s have a look at some screenshots from the game:
Love the picture of that car. Fits the retro theme of the game perfectly. Here’s another picture, this time featuring the Police:
Here’s another one:
I’m really looking forward to see the final version of this game. I love the idea of basing such a sports game on the 1980′s. Maybe it’ll inspire others to do similar stuff in the future? For us that enjoys travelling back memory lane, such games are a bit more interesting than usual.
There is a lot more I could say about this game, but if you want to know more, I recommend you visit the official website of the game. It can be found here. There you’ll find tons of screenshots, videos and information. Before I’ll stop writing, here’s a small preview video (from December 2011) from the game. Enjoy!
Have a good weekend folks!
