Argentinian computer games publisher Evolution is developing a football management game that presents a "warts-and-all-version" of the beautiful game.

Football Deluxe players have to contend with fights on the training ground, financial problems and demanding fans as well as the team strategy decisions that are the mainstay of more conventional football management games. The game is currently undergoing testing and is likely to be released in Britain sometime next year, Ananova reports.

Future versions of Football Deluxe will incorporate bribery and drug-taking, reports Terra Noticias Populares via Ananova. Developer Santiago Siri, 21, said: "We thought it would be cool to include a bit of the Argentine temper. We made the game funnier. In the next edition I will include the possibility for club owners to buy off referees and footballers will be able to take drugs to enhance their performance."

A good start and with the further introduction of references to sexual shenanigans and tunnel bust-ups the developers will get even closer to representing English football. Screenshots and more information on Football Deluxe is available here. ®
