Out of the Park Developments, developer of outstanding sports simulation games, is proud to announce that they are now offering Out of the Park Baseball 8, Metacritic's 2007 PC Game of the Year and their second-highest rated PC game of all time, for FREE! OOTP 8 is available for download here: http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/ootp8.
Out of the Park Baseball ("OOTP 8"), available for Windows and Mac, is the 2007 edition of OOTP Developments' award-winning baseball management simulation series, about which GameShark said, "Other games in the text-sim world cover certain aspects of the sport, but OOTP combines the best of those worlds - and then some - with a ridiculous amount of depth, options, and overall polish." The free version of OOTP 8 is fully-functional. There are no restricted features, the game never expires, and you can play unlimited seasons. It's free in the simplest sense of the word.
What is OOTP 8?
According to GameSpy, "If you have any interest in the guts of baseball, OOTP is simply a must-own product. It's a landmark achievement." In most fantasy baseball leagues, you draft players, and then you watch stats. Maybe you pull off a trade or two, but that's about it. With OOTP, you can create your own baseball world, and you handle everything a real general manager would: draft players, make trades, scour the waiver wire, scout players, sign free agents, and more. In addition, you have the option of controlling the day-to-day coaching duties as well: establish lineups, set depth charts, set the pitching rotation, and manage each game with OOTP's pitch-by-pitch engine. You can play OOTP using real Major League teams including full minor leagues (with Opening Day 2007 rosters), use any historical year in baseball from 1901-2006, or create your own completely fictional baseball league. OOTP even supports online leagues so you can have the ultimate challenge: managing against other human players!
