The development of forthcoming football management sim Soccer Tycoon is progressing well, with the skeleton of the game now in place.
The player can take charge of a club from one of nine leading European nations (England, Spain, Germany, Italy, Portugal, France, Russia, Netherlands & Turkey). There are plans to add the Chinese League too later in development.
The game currently simulates 23 leagues and 20 domestic Cup competitions across these nine leagues, with realistic qualification for the Champions League and Europa League.
The next stage will be to integrate players and staff members (such as managers, scouts, physios, coaches etc) into the game. Then stadium development, a youth academy and the ability to sell your club and buy another (if desired) whilst increasing your personal wealth as a Soccer Tycoon will be worked in.
So in summary, the main aspects of the game will be:
• Buying and selling players
• Negotiating contracts/wages/transfer fees
• Hiring and firing staff, including managers
• Steering your club through multiple seasons to try and win trophies
• Developing and training youth players
• Developing your stadium
• Amassing your own personal wealth
The game is currently being developed for iOS only.
Screenshots of the progress so far are below. Bear in mind development is still at an early stage and no effort has yet been made on the aesthetics – the final product will look much sexier!
