New Version Feature Spotlight #8 - Professional Boxing Manager

Professional Boxing Manager is a Knockout. Start the Count..1..2..3..4..5..6..7..

Featuring famous boxing brands from across the world helping to create an authentic experience

The core strategy behind this game was to not only make it bigger and better but also to make it much more realistic.
To aid this cause I solicited the involvement of boxing brands from the well known world famous down to new independent labels on the basis of helping create a fabulous and authentic experience making you, the boxing fans feel right at home!
So who's in? Yeah, like I'm ever going to reveal all of the brands involved here!
But to give you some idea of the scope of the massive and beautiful boxing game that will soon be in your hands, it includes major publications like the renowned Boxing Monthly and the awesome new Undisputed Magazine. Then there's world class equipment related brands such as Sugar Rays, AMPro and Rival to name a few. There are also great boxing forums and channels like Live Fight, Boxing Asylum, The Main Event Boxing Show, World Boxing News and many more.

The brands are interwoven into the fabric of the game so they can be experienced exactly how they are in the real world. For example you might get a message from an boxing equipment manufacturer offering you a glove wearing deal or you might see a boxing forum quote telling everyone how rubbish your stable is, lowering your fame.
Oh, So this is Advert City population me then?

No. I wish. Then I might actually be getting paid handsomely and using the funds to make me handsome! There are a couple of ads around but nothing too distracting. Also every brand appears on the ring mat in the 3d fight scene which is a pretty cool bit of screen time, no matter how majorly famous you may be.

Until next time...

Box On!

New Version Feature Spotlight #7 - Professional Boxing Manager

Professional Boxing Manager is a Knockout. Start the Count..

 Enjoy the thrill of achieving Amateur boxing glory and gaining recognition for your management excellence!  

Games should be fun right?
I was very conscious when making this game to ensure it doesn't feel like you are simply interfacing with a cold hard database, rather that you are making an impact on the boxing world and having fun doing it!

So, how is some fun to be had?
Well, fun is what you make it. What may be fun for one player may not be quite so entertaining for another! I know some players are already excited by the Amateur boxing career development aspect, whereas others would take more enjoyment from bringing back washed up a former champ. Whatever your idea of fun may be, I have devised interesting side plots to the main mission of boxing related getting, training, fighting and winning.

Firstly; it is my pleasure to announce...The Golden Games! That's right; since this game has Amateur boxing what it also needed was a massive World Championship Amateur Boxing knockout style Tournament! Every year the best 32 Amateurs in each weight class are drawn to compete in the Golden Games to decide who takes the gold and the glory! Maybe your hot prospect will round off a fantastic year of wins by scooping the title! Maybe after he’ll get big headed and try to dump you? Maybe he’ll add a few zeros to his contract if you tried to renegotiate? Maybe it’ll mean he starts higher in the rankings when he turns pro? Maybe you’ll have to wait to find out.
Secondly; if you're an awesome boxing manager you should be rewarded right? What are you expecting? Some sort of trophy? Alright then! The game is stacked with great unlock-able trophies for all manner of brilliant achievements, there's even an in-game trophy room where you can bask in their glory whenever you like! No, I will not be telling you what they all are! :0)
But; I want MORE fun! Give it to me now!
Whoah, easy Tiger! Ok, check this out. Guess what happens if you're the manager of the best Amateur boxers in your Country in each weight-class when the Golden games come around? That's right, by default YOU will become your own Countries International Boxing Team Manager! Neat huh? There should probably be an award trophy for that... ;0)

Until next time...
