Kick-off for the Pro Rugby Manager 2014 campaign on Kickstarter !

Paris, September 26, 2013 - Notice to fans of Rugby and sport management sims: Pro Rugby Manager 2014 debuts today on the Kickstarter crowd-funding platform!

After releasing two versions of Pro Rugby Manager (2004 and 2005), Cyanide rekindles its passion for the oval ball. The studio is now seeking finances for a brand new version of its sports management game via the crowd-sourced, fund-raising model.

As in previous editions of the game, the player will manage a professional rugby team. An extensive career mode offers numerous tasks such as facilities management, contract negotiations, training and squad selection. Tactical choices in matches will then decide whether the manager leads his team to the top of the table!

With recognised expertise in sport management sims (Pro Cycling Manager), Cyanide has chosen to seek backing for this new project via the Kickstarter platform. The game is part self-funded by the studio and the aim is that the community contribute the remainder of the finances. Fans will also be asked to provide input during development and testing, and to promote the game up to and beyond its release in the summer of 2014.
