It’s been a while since the last post.

This post is to announce a new version of Freekick 3, the latest rewrite of my project of writing a soccer game. It doesn’t have fancy graphics (on the contrary, it’s very ugly), but it tries to provide a fun soccer game to play nevertheless.

This is actually the first announcement of Freekick 3. The previous announcement on the Freekick series was the announcement of Freekick 2. Here’s a short overview of the features.

- A few different game modes, including friendly games, knockouts, leagues, seasons and a mockup of a career mode.

- The team, league and player data is not included, but can be imported to Freekick 3 either from Sensible World of Soccer data files or, my favourite, from Wikipedia. By having a script to fetch all the data from Wikipedia it’s ensured that the data is relatively up-to-date and that there’s a fair amount of teams to play against.

- The AI is improved and may provide a nice challenge.

- You can either control the whole team in the match or choose to just control one player.

You can download Freekick 3 (source) from https://github.com/anttisalonen/freekick3. I’ll show a quick tour around Freekick 3.
