How much would you be prepared to pay to play for your Esports football team?

It’s April 2020.  Live sport isn’t happening right now and it will take a while before it gets back to pre-pandemic days. Esports is filling the void and will continue to become more popular even when live sport returns. If you’re male, between the ages of 12 and 25, and practice a lot you could become a top player in many of the most popular Esports games where dexterity and reaction times count.  If you’re outside this demographic you’ve virtually no chance in these games but you can be the best player in the game of Goalscorer – and you can represent your favourite team when playing the game too.  The game of Goalscorer isn’t on Esports platforms right now but we want it to be once we develop premium versions of the game. If you want to represent your favourite football team how much would you be prepared to pay? Would you pay more to be involved in specific tournaments? Learn how to play the game and let us know in the player...

Talking Point – Esports, loot boxes and The Strategy Game

Talking Point – Esports, loot boxes and The Strategy Game

If the Chess Channel on Twitch has well-over half a million followers it shows that games that could be viewed as having less appeal than games that simulate football or motor racing for example have a place within the Esports arena. The appeal of Goalscorer or other versions of The Strategy Game to Esports players and viewers could also be increased beyond its standard gameplay attributes in a number of other ways. One way would be to work with specific brands which have different characters that can be used in different premium versions of the game, but only successful players could unlock the top characters to use in that premium version. The Star Player counter could also have ‘loot box like functionality’ in theory but in practice this wouldn’t be suitable for games played by children.  The games industry knows that it’s only a matter of time before loot boxes are recognised as gambling even in jurisdictions where they aren’t banned or recognised as gambling now.  Rewarding the performance of the game player in premium versions of The Strategy Game to unlock special game counter characters doesn’t have to be tied to ‘loot-box like functionality’ and the innovative games publisher/investor will know...

Limited time to invest in Goalscorer!

Limited time to invest in Goalscorer!

Goalscorer, the football world’s strategy game and tutorials were first developed in Adobe Flash some years ago but the game stayed on the shelf as it was necessary for the game’s originator to focus on work outside of the games industry. As Adobe will no longer support Flash from the start of 2021 there’s now limited time to develop final versions of the game for web and mobile.  We want to develop free play and premium tournament versions of the game with better AI, better graphics, and games on different themes too (not just football). Can you help?  If so please email info@thestrategygame.net to let us know how you can help.  Whether you’re a developer, publisher or would just like to invest in the game, we want to work with you if you’ve taken the time to learn how to play the game and can see its potential.
