The game was going backwards after losing Spear and Josh to be honest.

The game was so far behind and in all reality, a 3D football game is just DOA without proper funding and team size, you can’t just have 1 guy doing it for 4 years. You gotta get others involved in the actual development in a scale of this size.

With EAs announcement of College Football, it was all but done.

I agree with everything BleedingRed said *above. I hate to hear it because I was rooting on the little guys here but I'm not surprised, especially after EA's announcement. But I do thank them for giving us something to try and support.*

Once Spear left, I was done.

This is a shame, but was inevitable. Wonder what bandwagon RM will jump on now

And then there was One. I was hoping that 2K would buy them out and build on the foundation. It was certainly a noble attempt at trying to bring something new. Ultimately , a noble attempt did nothing to quench my thirst for a good football game. The game would have great on Dreamcast, but as far as today's standards, It didn't meet it! Oh well

I agree it was a noble attempt. It showed promise and good ideas. I can deal with the lower graphics but the gameplay was atrocious and even the simulated stats and schedules were wonky.

I appreciate someone really cracking hard on trying to make something grass-roots in something as tough as sim sports, and it always sucks when anyone in game development loses their job or their studio.*

That said, these games were pretty terrible and fundamentally busted every which way, but it's actually a very good case study in showing how deeply difficult and complex making a game, period, even one as erronous as this. Looking at these games is a good way to appreciate how much work and manpower it takes to make a game of this scale, even one that couldn't match its ambition like Maximum Football. Best of luck to everyone involved going forward.
