Baseball Mogul, one of the true pioneer baseball simulation games continues on. Clay Dreslough the original creator of Baseball Mogul seems to have ramped up the game offering by bringing another developer on staff named Connor Milliken.
The Sports Mogul company in recent years has been focused on making an NFL Football theme card game named Masters of the Gridion. Their kick-starter campaign reached its desired target and the production of the game for sale will be available.
Due to the mixed feelings about the performance of Baseball Mogul 2014, their company has provided a promo code to those who ordered that version with a discount on the 2015 version of Baseball Mogul. We at GM Games have not delved into if the sim engine speed and previous challenges have been corrected but if the effort of Connor is any indication, they have someone to help them move the game along and keep the franchise of Baseball Mogul and Football Mogul games flowing.
For SportMogul, it is nice to see they have the passion to keep the series going with some larger changes of significance but I think they need to tone down the ‘best game on the market’, ‘best baseball sim ever’ all over the game marketing, branding and website. It may be true to some that enjoy the flow of Baseball Mogul over something like OOTP or PureSim. People who grew up on Baseball Mogul will always appreciate what the game is, and the educated consumers in the simulation community will form their own opinions. Let’s hope in the end they are in agreement with what Sports Mogul Inc. is describing the game as.
