Baseball Mogul Is #1 For 2nd Straight Year
September 19, 2007 Sports Mogul Inc. announced today that their
award-winning product, Baseball Mogul 2008, has topped 115,000 units in
sales in just six months, breaking their sales record for the entire
year of 2006.
According to data from NPD Research, this makes Baseball Mogul 2008 the
#1-selling PC baseball game for the second straight year. This year's
Baseball Mogul was the first game ever to give the player full control
of any baseball franchise while also adding the strategic option of
playing each game one pitch at a time. To achieve this level of realism,
Sports Mogul built a database tracking every season from 1901 to 2007,
including individual pitch ratings and pitching styles for every pitcher.
"I can't say enough about how great our fans are," said Clay Dreslough,
founder and president of Sports Mogul Inc. "This company started twelve
years ago in my basement, with the idea of building games for sports
fans who care about strategy instead of reflexes. I never dreamed we
could become the #1 overall baseball game without the development budget
of a large publisher."
Baseball Mogul's second year in the top spot also marks the second year
the product was published by Enlight Software Ltd. (www.enlight.com ).
Dreslough credits much of the game's success to the efforts of the
Enlight team. "We've worked with several publishers over the past 12
years. Enlight is by far the best of the bunch. Baseball Mogul is a game
that enlightens people; it helps them enjoy and understand their
favorite sport. Enlight understands that type of game and how to portray
it to the thinking sports fan."
