I wrote the original Football Manager, Football Manager 2, Football Manager World Cup edition, and a few years ago, Footymax. All of them were Football Management games and yet, in each one, the gameplay was different. I sometimes think that I was trying to move too many steps at once between the early games, but I am inventive, and it sort of happens, naturally. It’s a question for me, what steps to take, what innovations really are worth it? I have seen some of the clones of the original Football Manager over the years, and most of them tried to keep the basics of the original game.
