Description

Football, Tactics & Glory is a football management game for strategy lovers. 

The game reinvents the basics of the football management genre, making it appealing to everyone, not only the most hardcore football management aficionados.

As a result, it is deep enough to keep many players engrossed for hundreds of hours already. Football, Tactics & Glory skips the boring parts of football management games – all those endless tables, numbers, routine and micromanagement.

If you enjoy turn-based gameplay, strategy or tycoon games, you will love Football, Tactics & Glory.

History

By the end of 2011, the team decreased to 3 people: programmer, animator and game designer. So they decided to make something small but addictive. Andrey Kostyushko, the leader of Creoteam, had a dream to make football strategy which is “right”. Which gives feedback on every player’s decision, which does not overwhelm players with tonnes of useless spreadsheets, which allows developing a football team, which is deep and replayable, and finally, which allows winning stronger opponents by using smart tactics.

The development went hard as the team lacked the needed financing. There was even a year-long pause in the development. But after hard times, the team decided to release their game on Steam.

So at spring 2015 developers passed Steam Greenlight just in one month. And on June 1st the game was released on Steam Early Access under the name “Football Tactics”.

This decision allowed the devs continue development because players were happy with the game.

After the first year in Early Access, the game plays and looked like a finished product. It was already fun, polished and very addictive. The Steam reviews were Very Positive.

But developers continued working on the game, listening to players and releasing big content updates. Their goal is to turn Football Tactics from a good game to the great one.

With this in mind, they added best face editor made by an indie team. Because every footballer needed a personality. Then, after another year of work, they released a huge update which added new football classes, RPG levelling for footballers, and many other features which made the game even deeper.

Now the game is very close to what they think is a great game. So the developers plan to release the game by the end of Spring 2018. Before it, early in 2018 the changed the game’s name to “Football, Tactics & Glory” because it better described the game’s nature.

The players really helped with their feedback, localization, bug reports. It worth to mention that one of the players even wrote a song for Football Tactics.

The release is planned for June 1st – exactly three years after the Early Access release. All we need to do before the release is to redesign the interface.

Selected Reviews

    • “Football Tactics is the most captivating indie PC game I have played. In addition to the strategic gameplay and management aspects, the fact that games play out quickly helped keep me going “just one more turn.” In that way, it is very much like bigger strategy titles, like the aforementioned Civilization series. Plus, it is polished and charmingly animated, with easy to read menus and a very helpful tutorial.”
      – Caley Roark , Operation Sports

 

    • “Think Heroes of Might and Magic but with footballers instead of griffins…”
      – Alan Passingham, The Pixel Empire

 

  • “A real innovation: deeply addictive…”
