The Game

Will to comeback

You are Rocco Galliano, the new coach of Calchester Assembled football team.
This is your comeback as football coach after the abrupt ending of your coaching career seven years ago.
Manage your team, your uneasy life and try to win matches in this managerial and narrative game.
You have to lead and live within this universe, dealing with the weird lifestyles of your players and President Boris Aluminovitch, trying to win the Thiefa League championship at the helm of Calchester Assembled.


A foggy evening in Manchester Joy City,
chatting with your cat about your dramatic comeback as a football manager.am of five.

There is a slim chance that you can make it through a full season.
Corruption, crime, drugs and romance are all paths that you may take – for the better or worse.
This is the only football game where you may lose the championship and win the game!

Will your raucous shouts from the bench change the fate of the team? Will you find wiseness and karma leadership with the help of the Book of Changes?
Will your shady past reach back to you and make you crumble?

“Football Drama is strange but compelling, and even if I didn’t get all of it, it stuck with me.”

“Finally there's a football game that appeals to me, a sedentary man who likes a bit of soapy drama”

“It might be the football management game that I always wanted (...) A story, not a spreadsheet, y’know?”
