Incredibly Flexible Football Game to Expand Matrix’s Strategy Lineup Matrix Games announced today that they have secured the rights to bring Maximum-Football (www.maximum-football.com) to the PC market.

Maximum-Football takes flexibility to a whole new level.  By allowing the players to select and change nearly every option of play, from Canadian vs. Professional USA rules to setting your own playbook for each team, Maximum-Football is the PC football fan’s dream come true.  Play or coach your team to victory in a fully customizable league system, draft free agents, and create the ultimate football team.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “We are proud to expand our line of games into a genre that has been silent on the PC market for far too long.  For those of you who don’t think football is a game of strategy, Maximum-Football will prove you wrong!”

Maximum-Football ships with full access to the database of players, plays, and more, allowing users to input their own information about any number of factors.  This means an avid Maximum-Football fan could use these tools for everything from casual play to matches with Fantasy Football teams!

David A. Winter, Lead Developer at Wintervalley, said, “By working with Matrix Games we hope to bring, not only fans of football, but fans of strategy as well to our game.  With their help we plan on building a strong community of a variety of people and begin revitalizing PC sports titles.”

Other features from the game include:

  • Player salary & basic contract information.
  • 16 individual ratings over and above things like height, weight and age.
  • Statistical categories for passing, rushing, receiving, special teams, defensive teams, etc…
  • User definable league structures allow for unlimited numbers of teams in 1 to 4 conferences with 1 to 4 divisions per conference.
  • Players can be created manually or automatically generated.
  • A free agent draft system.
  • Each team can have its own playbook.
  • Create and edit formations & plays for offense, defense and special teams.
  • Play routes are created via drawing command points and assigning scripted commands to each point. No longer are you restricted to selecting from half dozen hard coded routes.
  • Newly created routes can be saved to templates for use in other plays.
  • A quick preview mode allows you to watch player movement through the play.
  • A full practice mode allows you to take to the practice field and run your plays with or without a defense.
  • And MUCH more!

War in the West: Operation Torch gets a release date!

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Gary Grigsby’s War in the West is unprecedented in its historical depth, detail and scope among computer wargames that depict the entire Western Front of World War II both on land and in the air.  War in the West is a “monster game” by any measure, but retains the ease of play that made its predecessor, War in the East, a classic.

Nevertheless, 2by3 Games has not been resting on their laurels. The team was eager to add more material and many improvements to the game. The result of all these efforts is Operation Torch, a stunning expansion that covers not only the eponymous operation by the combined forces of the Western Allies against the Afrika Korps after El Alamein, but also much more!
