New PC Football Game?

Postby tomservo » Thu Oct 10, 2019 8:02 am

Hi all,

I'm probably not the first person to think of or mention this, but after seeing the new Maximum Football 2019 and realizing two things, that it was put together by 3 people, and that we have an amazing talent pool on this group, I mean I can't begin to imagine how people mod things like the rules in a game, or are able to layer different commentary and presentations.

Why not make a PC football game of our own? I'm actually dead serious about this. It would be non-licensed but completely moddable, not by downloading some patches or utilities, but everything would be officially supported in game. The seed money could be got through crowdfunding, kickstarter, etc. I think something like this is completely doable. The particulars like what people would run the project, the organization, responsibility for funds, etc. would have to be worked out, but I'm just throwing this out as an idea for now to see if there's interest before getting bogged down in details. Now maybe I'm dreaming and this is just my 5AM all-nighter talking and if it were that simple it would have been done already....

... or maybe not.

I would definitely support this, and back it financially with what I could afford, but I don't know how likely it is. Many of the talented developers on this forum would be too busy, I worry, to work on such a thing. Working on an indie game usually ends up burning you out something fierce. Additionally, I don't know if many of the people here with development experience have experience building 3D, or even 2D, games. 2D is bad enough, but 3D games are a whole different monster. As for my personal experience, my development is limited to a few small scripts and command line programs, and a few HTML pages. I'd be useless in the endeavor.

Also there is the issue of how to license all the NFL logos/teams/player data etc.....as I'm sure anything the NFL can get their greedy hands on they will sue just to get any bit of extra revenue they can......

It's a cool idea but may be more involved than we know in getting all the legal stuff out of the way....

He said in his post that it would be unlicensed. All fake teams.

Oh ok. Still it would be a massive undertaking to design a game from scratch. :lol:
