Description

Pixel Manager: Football 2020 Edition is a brand new football game, in old school pixels.
You will take the reins of a sleeping giant, on the verge of bankruptcy.
Can you lead it back to former glories, taking it back to the top-tier where it belongs?
You have 10 seasons to accomplish this goal!

History

Inspired by the classic management games of the 90's (The Manager, Kick Off Player Manager, Premier Manager), Pixel Manager: Football 2020 Edition drags the genre into modernity.

The project took about 2 years to be completed.
The game was in closed beta rather long: this allowed us to make sure that the gameplay works properly and that the user interface is attractive, making the game funny and enjoyable.
The closed beta also allowed us to fix some bugs thus leaving the retail version of the game very stable.

Pixel Manager: Football 2020 Edition was shown to the public for the first time at Gamescom 2019 in Cologne.
