“This year the focus was on building a brand new interface, streamlining game play and improving the game’s artificial intelligence”, said Shaun Sullivan, the game’s developer. “Many games in the sports management simulation genre have become overly complex, and approachable only to hard core enthusiasts. With this version PureSim will attract a wider audience while still improving on the feature set that enthusiasts demand”.
“PureSim is the ideal blend of playability and depth,” says noted sports game columnist Bill Harris. “Shaun also has a unique approach in that he allows users to tweak the underlying engine to an unprecedented degree. This is clearly the future of sports game design.”
“One of the aspects that really appeals to folks is starting a league, running it for many seasons and building a history of their own. PureSim 2004 has a greatly enhanced Almanac feature that tracks records by team, player season and even offers the ability to browse past issues of the games dynamically generated news stories.”, said Sullivan. “Of course, the game isn’t just about fictional baseball universes, some players like to play out real seasons from Baseball history and PureSim offers historical Baseball buffs the ability to play any season from 1900-2003”.
