While playing baseball, we spend a lot of time running the bases,” says Giammarco. “With our game, I wanted to focus on the other things that make a baseball game unique and fun.”
To this end, the gameplay is pretty different, as well. The first game in the series featured a lot of fast and casual gameplay. Players had to memorize some pretty obscure statistics and then execute basic baseball moves as quickly as possible. In our second game, we tried to make the game a bit more challenging with more precision and strategy.
Instead of taking a few minutes to memorize a bunch of stats, players now have to make a lot of smart decisions and try to get the highest average and RBI’s on their team, all while keeping a safe distance from the opposing team’s batters and runners.
For Giammarco, making the game more tactical was a good decision and will make it a lot more interesting for the players. For example, in baseball, it’s often the hitter’s job to strike out and force the pitcher to try and escape by taking an intentional walk. In baseball, there’s a lot more risk involved than in baseball cards, where every player has one hit and no RBIs.
In baseball, it’s all about putting the ball in play and hoping that your team can score enough runs to beat the other team. In the video game, we have to do the exact opposite – throw as many strikes as possible to force the opposing team to try to outscore us, so we have the opportunity to get more RBIs and better stats.
