Thwack! Cricket Captain 2015 Released

For all your leather-on-willow needs

Summer is the season for noble, genteel sports like the Tour de France and cricket. Player may not smoke pipes while bowling or tuck a pint of stout behind their wicket (a classic display of confidence to intimidate the bowler, that) any longer, but cricket's still the sport for me.

If you fancy managing a team of fine gentlemen in their sporting endeavours, have a gander at Cricket Captain 2015 [official site], which came out last week.

The latest version of the long-running sim is the same at heart: take over managing a team, picking up players, coaching them, arranging plays, and so on - sports management stuff. Developers Childish Things this year have improved the 3D graphics for matches, added new leagues and teams from around the world, boshed in new stadiums, rolled out classic England vs. Australia scenarios, and plenty more. Its site has a list of all that's new if you're curious. It doesn't sound like a huge upgrade for folks who owned it before, but that's annualised sports games for you.

A launch discount makes it £17.09 on Steam until Wednesday, but developers Childish Things are selling Steam keys themselves for only £15.19 right now.

Here, have a launch trailer:
