Tennis Elbow Manager 2 Beta + Tennis Elbow 4 Pre-order

Tennis Elbow Manager 2 Beta

After 8 months in Early version on, Tennis Elbow Manager 2 Beta is released ! (still on Mana Games' website, it'll come in a while on Steam)

The state of the game is changed to Beta because now all the important new features are implemented in the game. However it still misses some polish and some secondary features that may come later on.

I'll keep fixing the bugs reported during the next few months while I'll be busy porting the game to the Unity engine. The version 1.0 will come shortly after it's done.

The main new features added since the release of the Early version are the 3D matches, with real-time coaching, and the possibility to play yourself the 3D matches both in the World Tour and in the newly added Training Club free mode.

The TEM2 3D matches let you test the new ball, court, strike & player physics of TE4, as it's all implemented in TEM2 !

Players physics may change a bit, but the rest is very close to the final results, except for tuning, of course.

The AI is also greatly improved, but more will be done, especially as only the Pro-10 difficulty has been tuned, and not for the gameplay but for the realism.

So the gameplay of TE4 will be more refined and less raw than what you can find in TEM2, but be careful though : after a couple of hours of play, you may have some trouble to come back to the old TE2013..! ;-)

And if you had missed the previous newsletter, here the main new features since TEM1 :
  • Men Tour starts in 1973 & Women Tour in 1983
  • Fictional years are generated in real-time, so each playthrough sees different top players in the future
  • Junior players, management and training
  • New menu design
  • Olympics
  • Better injury handling (eg: can go on playing with the risk to get more injured)
  • Training Schedule (can save a training schedule & reapply it)

You can download & play the demo now :

And it's 20% off till November 28th : .
