Backyard Baseball 2001 online play returns October 10, 2021

As well as Backyard Football!



I still have my discs, but for them to run on current operating systems you need the ScummVM virtual machine.

There is also a spreadsheet that reveals each player's official 0-100 rating in every category, instead of the baseballs rating that might make two players appear otherwise identical:

I did try playing Backyard Soccer again recently, but besides it being too easy one thing is there isn't anything that can improve the graphics of these games (including framerate) because they are sprites, not polygons. That's too bad, because these games do run pretty choppy and they aren't the same as I remember in that regard since we didn't have games in 60 FPS at the time for the most part.

Maybe this is a step towards them eventually reviving the series. I loved the Backyard games.

Perhaps, but Humongous Entertainment became defunct after 2006. Anything that was made by anything but them was a sham in comparison.

I'd take sprite-based play again though, that's for sure!
