Baseball is weird and this game is no exception. Don't take it too seriously. Enjoy the show.

Really funny game! I included it in my Movie Game Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to take a look. :)

This was a lot of fun.
At first I didn't see what I was doing wrong, then I paid proper attention to the stats in relation to the question!  There were still a few odd questions tho (perhaps in-jokes?)
I've yet to actually see this film, but it's been on my To Watch list for years!
Congrats on a well polished entry - good luck! :D

Huh...

I don't get baseball, haven't seen the movie this is based on, and constantly feel like I'm doing horrible, but I keep winning eventhough I haven't a clue what I'm doing. And I love every minute of it! I would like to know how that artstyle was acheived, something with shaders I'm guessing.

Thanks for playing! One of the goals of the game was that people who don't know baseball could still find enjoyment in the gameplay, so we're glad to see so many non-baseball folks interact with our title!

As for the graphics, as stated in the entry we use Morph3D base human models. These are available through the Unity Asset Store. The models at highest quality have an incredibly large number of vertices, so instead of presenting them at the highest level of detail we use the lowest level available. This gives a more blocky feel to the character. Next, we wrote our own custom unlit vertex shaders that simple color the vertex with a solid color. We made materials for each component of the person (hair and body) and simply swapped out the provided materials from Morph3D with our own. This same strategy was used for non-human components like the table and background decorations.

Thanks again for playing! Hope we answered your questions.

Wasn't sure whether I would win or lose at first. Once I figured out how the game said "Yes, that was the right play," it was much better. I love the visuals.

Really neat game.  Surreal vibe, weird sense of humor.  I played it first then watched the clip from the movie, I think the way you used it as a starting point of inspiration was pretty brilliant.  Well done!

We had the option of either going with nothing but hard baseball stats (OBP, SLG, WAR, oRAR, etc.) or doing something more accessible to less sporty folks by making things surreal, and we chose the latter. :) Thank you for playing!

I was a little confused at first, but managed to win the second time, had a bit of a chuckle with some of the writing and some of the names - well done!
