Baseball Mogul 2009
Enlight Interactive announced today that their award-winning product, Baseball Mogul 2009, had topped 120,000 units in sales. According to NPD Research, this figure makes Baseball Mogul 2009 the #1-selling PC baseball game for the third consecutive year.
"We target our games to the hardcore baseball fan, but also spend a great deal of time ensuring that Baseball Mogul is accessible to everyone," said Clay Dreslough, founder and president of Sports Mogul Inc. "It's great to see that our hard work has paid off, and that realistic baseball simulations are growing in popularity."
To celebrate this milestone, Sports Mogul is offering a deeply discounted "5-pack" of the CD-ROM version, so that fans can easily start a league or share Baseball Mogul with their friends: http://store.sportsmogul.com/
This year's version of Baseball Mogul includes all-new in-game Sound Effects, new interactive base-running, a new Start-Up Wizard, a new Depth Chart screen, and updated stats and rosters for the 2008 season.
Baseball Mogul is the first game ever to give the player full control of any baseball franchise from 1901 to 2008, while also adding the strategic option of playing each game pitch-by-pitch. To achieve this level of realism, Sports Mogul built a database tracking every season from 1901 to 2008, including individual pitch ratings and pitching styles for every pitcher that ever played.
This is the third year that Baseball Mogul is being distributed by Enlight Interactive 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 15 years and Enlight is our best partner ever. Baseball Mogul is a game that enlightens people -- it helps them enjoy and understand their favorite sport."
