Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football 2020 Arrives Today For $29.99

Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football 2020 is releasing digitally today on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $29.99. The indie team of Canuck Play and Spear Interactive have dedicated themselves to providing a video game for simulation football fans that is driven by community feedback. The 2020 game will feature numerous improvements, upgrades, and new features:

  • Unity Partnership – Unity experts enhanced the core infrastructure of the game, featuring improvements to the following areas: game performance (framerate), lighting system, player movement, object avoidance, and custom receiver animations.
  • Overhauled Gameplay Experience – New audio throughout the game, improved linemen interaction, open field running, tackle physics, defensive back coverages, QB animation speed, more tipped passes, faster handoffs, expanded AI, in-game stat overlays, new broadcast and gameplay camera angles.
  • Play Designer – For the first time in over 10 years, a full football play designer returns to consoles. Gamers can design both offensive and defensive plays. Implement standard playbook strategies with receiver route trees, read progressions, play action, run types, man and zone coverage, blitz packages, QB spy, and even set player motion.
  • Dynasty Mode 2.0 – Conference championships, player transfers, Juniors leaving for the draft, new Bowl games, updated depth chart screen, faster simulation engine, diverse playcalling (giving each team a new identity), enhanced accuracy in recruit generation (including height and weight), detailed recruit commitments and player suspensions, and much more!
  • Unrivaled Customization – Brand new “Customization Hub” to manage all your custom leagues, teams, and players. Choose from over 300 stock logos or create your own with our logo editor. All leagues are now available in Play Now & Season Mode including a new 32 team league structure.
  • Play as Legendary Quarterback Doug Flutie – throw a hail mary in Play Now, win a championship in Season Mode, or even design plays for Doug in our brand new play designer!
  • Custom Controls – Map your own buttons! Customize your on-field game controls to get a familiar feel or a brand new one.
  • Multiple Rule Sets & Field Sizes – Still the only game to feature multiple football rule sets! Choose from US Pro, Canadian or College Football rule sets. Field size and game ball will update according to your selection.

We will have our Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football 2020 review online within the next week or so.

  1. We are still waiting for Sony to push the game live through the store. The Xbox version was released late last night but it was a build from several weeks ago. We are also waiting on Xbox to push over our day one content update.
    We'll continue to update everybody once we have more news.

    Definitely interested. On my phone and my computer it comes up in store, but won't allow purchase.

    Yeah and if you look at other games released today, they are having the same issue. It appears like it's on Sony's end.

    Thanks for the update, Spear. I was just about to ask why it wasn't on the Sony store yet. Hopefully they get it fixed before I get off work today.
    I have both and Xbox One X and a PS4 pro. I usually get cross platform titles on Xbox One X cause it's a little more powerful and on most sports games delivers smoother framerates. Any reason to go with the PS4 instead? I want the smoothest possible experience. Thanks. Excited to see something new from a passionate team. No PC version in the works?

    PS4 will get the content updates instantly due to Sony's patch process. That would be the only main reason to choose PS4 over Xbox. I find the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro play pretty similar - maybe a slight edge to the X.
    Not sure if this is the spot for this, but I'm leaving it here until told otherwise. Some issues I noticed during my first game on PS4 as the Columbus Beavers with no edits:
    -Game locked on team select screen on my first attempt. Not sure if that's due to the duplicate team problem.
    -Columbus has 0 run plays in their offensive playbook.
    -When trying to choose an offensive play by formation, the cursor gets stuck in that category and can only be backed out of by pausing the game.
    -The replay doesn't seem to trigger with a push of the "X" button post-play. Also, the replay option showed for every play except my touchdowns.
    And this isn't a bug, but you've got to figure out a way to let us play using the broadcast cam instead of only spectating with it if possible. The game looks and feels much better from that perspective versus the classic view. Anyway, I look forward to messing around with it some more tonight. And THANK YOU for making the crowd sound more present this year and allowing for custom control mapping.
    Did you guys happen to fix the broken achievements for this year's version? I already signed a 5-star prospect and the achievement did not unlock.
    What is included in the " day one content" ?  I am playing on Xbox and my QB keeps throwing to receivers before I can press the button that I want. Then one time I pressed the button he just stood there holding the ball. Also on handoffs the QB will sometimes just spin in circles.  Also is there a way to chose the away team in play now? I can only change the home team. I am hoping these things get fixed with the update? As it is now its too frustrating to play but if I could at least throw to the player I want to receive the ball before my QB does it on his own. I just might have some fun with it.
    Just tried to play as Tampa, and they didn't have any running plays in their playbook. You also couldn't select offensive plays by formation.

    Aware of these and we're fixing them right now. Testing a patch that will be pushed to the PS4 soon.

    I just started my second game on PS4 and it got stuck staring at the sideline after the coin toss. Denver State vs. Salt Lake City.

    I just tried to start a new game with the same teams and it got stuck at the team select screen with the audio still playing.

    Try using a double tap lob pass or a touch pass by lightly pressing the receiver icon.

    We are aiming to have a patch released on the PS4 in the next couple of hours.

    The game will not allow me to select running plays! It freezes

    Well, I can see strides and the game is on the right track. My suggestion is spend the next year working on animations! Transitional animations with DB/WR interactions,etc..... the gameplay is more important than Dynasty, etc.... Just food for thought

    Thanks Spear but I can't double tap a lob pass or light touch the button because the QB throws the ball instantly before i even have a chance. Whats weird is the very first time I played for a few minutes just messing around with it, I was actually able to pass but now the QB does it before I get a chance. At least my running game is working OK except for once in awhile the QB animation hand off seems broken and the QB will spin in circles

    What team(s) are you using that have running plays? I want to try it out and compare it to last year.

    Version 1.04 just got installed on my PS4, FYI.

    Yeah, we are testing some things on the production environment at the moment. That's not the final patch.

    Good to know. So will it be 1.05 that PS4 users should be on the lookout for after the patch is finalized?

    1.05 or beyond. We can push patches to PS4 through their automatic cert process so that's why you may see multiple.

    First year buying Maximum Football.
    Glad that i discovered the series and developers.
    Do we know what's involved in the Xbox patch? Curious to what to look forward to when it drops. Also don't want to get my expectations too high or set to low for it. :)
    Just a few questions, trying to learn the game.
    I've started to learn a few things and it's increasing my enjoyment of the game.
    1. Is there a way to make a tackle? I've struggled a little. Is it just dive or run into the guy?
    2. Interceptions seem to be few and slim. Is that by design?
    I think if I learn how to play a little better defense, I'd enjoy it even more. Get some ownership in my defense performance.
    Glad to be a part of this community now. Excited to see the future and what they build upon.
    Thanks King of Kings. That’s unfortunate. Wonder why if they have a working broadcast cam they can’t make it  playable in that view.. Maybe that is patchable.

    What is the status of the XB1 content update?

    Microsoft did not push it during the day today. I do not think they push content updates over the weekend. It's looking more like Monday at this point.
    Unfortunately, we've been up to our neck in issues today on the PS4 side.

    It's a perplexing situation for us too. We did more QA testing this year than any other year. The game works the way it should on PS4 dev kits (run plays, Dynasty, no duplicating of teams). Yet when the game was pushed to retail PS4s, the problems arose.
    Regardless, we're working through the night to debug and get a fix out to you guys.

    So out of curiosity, are you always in a miserable mood, or do you save it for 3 man teams of indie developers who respond quicker and better than massive corporations? Relax and quit acting like it's the end of the world if something isn't perfect right off the bat. At least they're rushing things through for everyone.

    You have zero patience. And you stoop down low enough to rip on Indy Developers on launch day. Do you know the feeling of releasing a game and then people screaming at you, even though you have zero budget and minimal resources? Yes, these glitches are frustrating but they are getting resolved. There has been no game in history that has released without a glitch.
    Take it easy, man. Wait until they resolve the issue and then enjoy the masterpiece that they've worked up!

    And that will be that.
    UPDATE:
    We believe we have narrowed down the issue and will be doing some further testing. If all goes well we should have a new update for Sony in a couple of hours. Sony releases patches rather quickly once it's in their hands (hour or so)

    My friend get a life. Seriously if all you have time to do i is whine about a video game update, then for real find meaning in your life.
    These guys are trying as hard as they can I’m sure. I’m a computer tech myself, and sometimes these things happen. But you really need to figure out some making in your life instead of griping about a video game that will probably be fixed by tomorrow.

    He's been banned. Let's move on.
    I brought last year's game and decided to buy this one as well. Last year I couldn't get into it though after trying multiple times sadly. This year though so far so good. I can definitely see and feel the improvements especially thanks to the smooth frame rate. I've had a few stutters on Xbox but nothing too major.
    You all are doing a great job, just continue to listen to the community and you'll have my support I can say that much.

    Sleeping? Who has time for that? We are finishing off the last test build and should be able to start the update process. We are hoping to have the update live in a few hours.
    This will be PS4 Update 1.05
    Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    For those on PS4, you may be promoted to download 1.05 which will have run plays working. You will need to delete your old saved data from the settings of your console before loading this update.
    However, I suggest you sit tight and wait a couple of hours as we are just finishing 1.06 which will fix the team select issue in Dynasty.
    That would iron out the two major issues in PS4.

    Thank you to everyone that is working on and associated with this game. I know its a few years off from being a finished product but its refreshing to be able to communicate with the games producers and can see their genuine desire to fix whats wrong and listen to their customers. I will continue to support this in the upcoming years and everyone should be appreciative of your hard work. Please get some rest and sleep.
    Just watched an Xbox steam, no patch yet so the  running back and ab going in circles was still there. Gotta say much improved over last year. One major problem was the streamer was up 8 with 2 min left and the cpu didn’t use any timeouts at all a d just let him run the clock out. This hopefully can and will be patched up because that is a dealbreaker.  With that said the feedback from the developers is fantastic and refreshing to see.
    UPDATE- I think I figured out the problem of my QB throwing passes without me pressing a button.  If I am in shotgun and don't move my QB the computer will pick out a receiver and throw the ball. If I have a passing play like under center and I move my QB, it let's me be the one to pick out a receiver and I can throw the ball. I just wish you could turn off the computer taking over on passing plays but I guess I will judt have to remember to move my QB when he's in shotgun but it happens so fast sometimes.  There could at least be a little more od a delay before the computer takes over my QB

    Since the Xbox update won't happen until at least Monday, should we hold off on customizing until it drops, like the PS4 update?

    You SHOULD be okay to customize. I don't think we'll have the same issue that we had with the PS4. That was a Sony thing with how they compile their patches.
    Are there shareable rosters on the PS4 version? Also let’s say I edit the whole league and put in real team names. Is there a way on the PS4 version to share this with everybody or not? Thanks!

    There isn't a way to share in-game. You might be able to figure out how to share this if the console allows for file sharing with a USB or another means.
    Just want to thank everybody for their patience and support during launch weekend. Friday was a tough go but we're thankful Sony and Microsoft were able to get the content updates out quick.
    We are back in the office tomorrow to start working on our next content update. There is lots to review but one of the top priorities will be decreasing the run game effectiveness and improving bullet passes. Of course, we'll be looking at and fixing bugs that have been reported. But wanted to share that those will be two major gameplay improvements that we will look at.

    NO IT IS NOT

    But can we play with it??? :google:

    The University of Maine: Where the broadcast cam isn't playable. The bear out front should have told you!
    So I don't know if anyone else is noticing this or if it's just me, but it seems like the recruit interest doesn't match their statement if that makes sense when it comes to the dynasty portion of the game. I have a example here below. I really enjoy this style of recruiting, mostly cause I'm a nerd who likes learning about these players
    If I'm wrong on this someone please correct me though. But I feel like his statement should be something like "I want to get my degree because my parents instilled that in me" or something like that in this example since his interest in this category is "Elite".

    Still no available on the EU PlayStation store? Why? I really wanted to give it a try on this game.. so disappointed.. how can I buy It?

    Just create a U.S. account. I created a U.K. account so I could get access to games that came out there earlier than they did here. Also I can play them under my regular account once downloaded and installed , just make sure you buy the DLC from the same store if there ever is any.
