• The 10th Year of Floorballmanager

    December 21, 2015 08:00

    Floorballmanager has been around since 2006 but never been released to the public nor the users that signed up to the beta version if we exclude the early alpha version that had 50 invited users during 2007. Unfortunately time flies and in June 2016 Floorballmanager celebrates its 10th year from when the game was founded and I started to develop the game because I thought that floorball should have its own fantasy manager game among the many that existed for football (soccer) and ice hockey. During 2011...

  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year - 2013 edition

    December 24, 2013 08:00

    Floorballmanager wish all beta testers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We expected and planned to release during this autumn but as you probably have seen it is still no release of the beta version. The reason is the same as previous years – we want to release the game when we can spend our time and love on Floorballmanager. Since previous estimates on release dates haven’t been successful we think that it is better that you know that we will release but today we don’t publish an...

  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year - 2012 edition

    December 24, 2012 07:00

    We at Floorballmanager want to wish all our upcoming beta testers and visitors a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! The last years have been too busy but as we wrote in the previous blog post, the estimated release date is still next fall around September or October 2013. We hope to increase the frequency of blog posts during the period between May and September next year to give more information and schedule for the beta release.

  • Summer and busy days

    July 17, 2012 14:42

    First of all, we regret that the Floorballmanager you all are waiting for isn’t released yet and even more that we are not ready for it either. The foremost reason is that we have been too busy with university studies and other projects during the previous fall and spring and at the same time missing the energy to give Floorballmanager the time on evenings and weekends the project require to be ready for release. The new target for the beta release is almost a year forward which mean we hope to invite yo...

  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year but no release in 2011

    December 24, 2011 21:42

    Many people mail us every week and ask when we should release the beta version of Floorballmanager or if it still is active and because of that we think that we should give all our visitors and beta testers the current information about Floorballmanager. The private beta which target all people that have signed up as a beta tester is not too far away and we’re missing 2-3 key components that we want to let our users try and evaluate. It’s not a problem because all depends on priority and the...

  • Inside the game: training

    June 07, 2011 08:00

    From today and until the release of the beta version of Floorballmanager we come to write short but detailed posts about some parts inside the game. Upon request we begin this series of posts with the training! Our philosophy of a good and a more challenging training system have more common with how the training work in the reality than other strategy manager games. In Floorballmanager every manager create at least one training program and specify the intensity of the training, which can be set between 1...

  • What's up with Floorballmanager?

    March 14, 2011 10:57

    Long time no see, or what should we say? The development of Floorballmanager have not been prioritized since the end of 2010 because of studies and too little spare time to other things (like develop for Floorballmanager). We receive a lot of emails who asks when we come to launch the beta and the best and honest answer is very simple. You can’t expect Floorballmanager before September 2011 and the plan today is to finish the last things under the upcoming summer. Do you have any questions? We alw...

    We at Floorballmanager wish you a merry christmas and happy new year. Beta version This fall and winter have been very busy for us in other areas and because of that the beta isn’t available at the end of this year. Instead we hope to be ready as fast as possible but we can’t say any date. We think it’s better to be open and transparent and describe the situation instead of hiding that the beta isn’t ready in the end of this year. The current status is that much things are ready ...

  • Floorball League demo released

    November 24, 2010 00:07

    No, it’s not Floorballmanager launch yet but today the team behind Floorball League released the demo of their floorball game. In the demo you take control of either Finland or Sweden and play one period like you did in the gameplay demo they previewed in the end of July. I’ve played a couple of matches of the demo and overall I think this is really awesome and in my view this is it what we can expect as a floorball game without a large game publisher behind the game studio like Electronic Arts. But wit...

  • Planning for the beta - Part 2

    November 03, 2010 19:02

    This is the second part of our blog serie about the upcoming beta of Floorballmanager. You can read the first part here. In this post we come to write about some parts we have decided to not enable because of the disabled official league which you can read about in the first part. Arena Economy is a large part of the game experience and a lot of things has a cost like player and employee salaries. You have also a cost for your club’s arena and of course you have also an income but only in the official le...

We also want to push for the beta release of our floorball collegues in Finland who develop the awesome floorball game Floorball League, also called FBL-Game. New training We have changed how the training work and the focus in this rewrite was to give you, the user a more realistic experience how the training actually is performed.

  • Announce new logotype

    April 05, 2010 19:19

    Today we are happy to announce our new logotype that come to add a new symbol to the existing logotype we are using today. Our primary goal with the updated logotype is to show that we are a floorball game and we think that a club badge with a floorball ball is a good way to do it. National teams We are also very happy about the high volume of people from countries other than Sweden. This open up the possibilities to interesting matches and tournaments between the national teams in the game with seniors...

  • Vi välkomnar finska och det nya året

    December 11, 2009 16:39

    Nu är det snart slut på 2009 och som de flesta säkert förstår kommer det inte bli någon lansering av beta versionen nu. Jag tycker det är tråkigt men jag får helt enkelt gilla läget när jag inte har haft den tid jag velat lägga ner på spelet. Jag får ofta mail där ni frågar när och om det blir lansering och svaret är att det kommer att lanseras men inte just nu och den bästa bortförklaringen är att jag precis har börjat studera på universitet. Det kräver sin tid och jag försöker jobba med spelet då och d...

  • Dags för en ny utvecklingshöst

    August 05, 2009 18:47

    Nu är det drygt fem månader senast vi skrev något här i bloggen och många har hört av sig sedan dess med frågor vilket vi tycker är roligt då det bevisar att ni, lika mycket som vi, verkligen vill ha ett bra managerspel för innebandy. Sedan mars har det hänt en hel del i spelet, en del nytt har tillkommit men större delen av tiden har gått åt till att finslipa och förändra befintliga saker. Exempelvis så var vi till en början väldigt nöjda med laguttagningen men efter att ha använt det i flera månader så...

  • Välkommen till FloorballManager

    March 15, 2009 20:55

    Först och främst vill jag välkomna dig till våran nya webbplats och blogg som du nu läser. Vår tanke är att skriva intressanta saker som rör utvecklingen av FloorballManager eller sådant som vi tror att ni besökare vill läsa om. Som de flesta vet så har vi varit igång sedan 2006 och sommaren 2007 lanserade vi den kanske inte allt för lyckade alphaversionen. Vi var helt enkelt för snabba att lansera det vilket vi nu har lärt oss och planerar nu att göra det lite annorlunda till betaversionen som ni säker...
