ManagerSim, most likely a remake of the 1982 game Football Manager, was successfully funded on Kickstarter a little over a year ago. Since then, updates have been infrequent. After June of last year, the updates stopped all together until this month. In a new update, published on April 1st, the developer addresses the events of the last year… sort of.

The game ManagerSim seeks to revive has a surprisingly large fanbase for a sports game that first came out on the Commodore 64 and a few other home computers. As a result, ManagerSim was funded by 46 backers in spite of the campaign page being a little lackluster. From looking at the other updates, there’s never been a lot of explanation from the dev on what he’s working on. Which brings us to the latest update…

What the developer wanted to communicate with this short and cryptic update is unclear. Is this a simple thank you to supporters? A reminder that the project is still being worked on? A vague goodbye? Whatever the future of ManagerSim will be, this update doesn’t shed any light on it at all.

She gets too attached to characters, reads a lot of theories, and is easily startled by jump scares. Megan is most interested in games with a good story and atmosphere, and she leans towards sci-fi and fantasy genres.
