Solecismic Software is an entertainment software company dedicated to producing cutting-edge career football simulations. We have three products available: Front Office Football, our professional football simulation, The College Years, our college football simulation, and Up and Down the River, a card game.
A career-play football simulation focuses on elements of the game you won't find in more traditional computer games. You'll still see the action unfold on the field, and in Front Office Football you can even call the plays. But you'll also build rosters, make trades, recruit from thousands of high schools, negotiate contracts and develop your school's academic reputation.
The games work together in forming an enjoyable simulated football experience. You can export seniors from The College Years into Front Office Football as draft-eligible rookies. The games work equally well on their own, as you'll find yourself making hundreds of decisions affecting every facet of your teams.
We invite you to try out the free demonstration versions of our games.
Front Office Football: The Card Game
Our new card game is now available for purchase. This is a GameCrafter project, and so it's more prototype quality than something done by a publisher. But it's a lot of fun, and it's finished. I enjoyed working on it, and I learned a lot about game publishing and design in the process. The product includes 564 cards. It's print-on-demand, which makes it rather expensive. So I'm offering it at my own cost, without profit. For those of you who have expressed interest in this game, it's my way of thanking you for your support all these years.
Front Office Football 2007
On October 27, 2006, we released Front Office Football 2007, a brand new version of our flagship product. The product is now available through our web store. An update to version 6.4 was released in October 2010.
Before ordering, we invite you to try a free demonstration version of the game.
In Front Office Football, you play the role of your favorite team's general manager. You determine your team's future through trading with opponents, negotiating contracts, bidding for free agents and building through the annual amateur draft.
You can also play the role of the armchair coach, setting game plans and depth charts, or even calling each play from an extensive playbook.
You can determine ticket prices and submit stadium construction plans for public approval. You can even move your team if the public won't properly support your franchise.
Front Office Football 2007 includes a multi-player career mode, allowing you to compete in a league with up to 31 other enthusiastic general managers.
The College Years
Our college football product, Front Office Football: The College Years, is also available for purchase. Both The College Years and Front Office Football 2007 are sold through an electronic download. Simply download the product, license it by paying though your credit card, and you're playing the game in minutes.
TCY received a 4-star review from Computer Gaming World in October of 2001, and was nominated for several Sports Game of the Year awards, including those chosen by Computer Gaming World and Computer Games Magazine. In September of 2004, we upgraded The College Years to version 1.3, which includes the 2004 college schedules and division realignments.
Please try the free demonstration version of The College Years.
In The College Years, you assume the role of the head coach of a major college football team. Each year, you'll recruit athletes from any of nearly 14,000 public high schools modeled in the game, train them and try to build a winning team in the challenging world of college football.
Long-term success in The College Years requires you to win championships, develop your school's academic reputation and build a profitable football program through alumni donations, television revenue and ticket sales.
The College Years is a text-based sports simulation aimed at fans who enjoy the numbers in sports as much as they enjoy the on-field action. The interface focuses on packing enormous amounts of data about each team and athlete into easily accessible lists and charts. The game simulation is depicted through play-by-play descriptions of the on-field action. Coaches can optionally view games through a graphical representation of a stadium scoreboard.
"Sports Simulations for the Twenty-First Century"
Solecismic Software was founded in 1998, and soon released Front Office Football, a simulation of professional football in America. The original game won several awards and was nominated for Computer Gaming World's Sports Game of the Year.
The sequels, EA Sports Front Office Football and Front Office Football 2001, brought new features and challenges to the series. Like their predecessor, both won an Editors' Choice Award from CGW and a 4 1/2-star review. These games were published by Electronic Arts.
Solecismic Software currently self-publishes both games, and released eight games in its first eleven years.
