I have quite a tricky conceptual problem: can management and fantasy be combined? I'd love to hear what you guys think.
Let's start from the beginning. I've tried both, and found them unsatisfactory eventually (the FM part took a decade or so, but that's a different story). Now I've decided to take things in my own hands and I'm trying to create simple games that combine the best parts of each one, or - in other words - create a bridge between gaming and what you see on the telly. Which are said best parts?
complex financial model
laws of supply and demand
realistic team selection
in-depth performance analysis
real-life results and career paths
The links are below in case you're interested in more details of my attempt to create such a game. But more importantly, I'd love to hear whether you see any conceptual problems. I suspect there are some I can't quite see.
My result so far:
