Desperate Footballers

Do you remember a note I´ve posted weeks ago on how football simulators usually fail to reproduce human drama? Well, I´ve just learned from Greg Costikyan´s weblog that Santiago Siri has solved that problem already, with his game entitled Football Deluxe. It is a football management game where, according to their website, "you don't have to handle names with statistics, but Players with Feelings".

Santiago Siri, who is also working on a promising game called Utopia, is Argentinian and, as almost every South American, knows the role of emotions in football. The demo version will be available soon.

I'm not a huge football fan, but I'm interested in seeing Santi's work.

I am sure that, potentially, you could enjoy his game as much as I would enjoy a drama set around a sport like baseball, or American football.

And that's what should make it different.
