Two roads diverged in a wood, and Iā€”

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

What is The Beautiful Game?

The Beautiful Game is an episodic, choice-based visual novel set in the unusual and fascinating world of women's professional football (soccer). It has a focus on storytelling, romance, humour, and drama.

This is not a football game. It's a coming-of-age story where professional sport is the backdrop. It's a fun, interesting, and slightly unusual attempt at a game.

The game's title is a fairly well-known nickname for the sport of association football.

The Story

You are a freshly graduated sports scientist who has landed a dream job at an elite women's football team. Following a sheltered upbringing in a small town, you are suddenly thrust into the bustling, glamorous, and competitive world that is Ocean City.

After a golden first few weeks in the job, you soon find yourself immersed in a whirlwind of high-stakes campaigns and corporate intrigue. As you navigate the dizzying world of elite sport, you will meet a diverse cast of characters ā€“ from seasoned executives to naive newcomers like yourself - both inside and outside of the bubble that is professional sport.

Amidst the drama and opportunity, you will form alliances, unknowingly create enemies, and learn valuable lessons about ambition, loyalty, and ultimately about yourself and what you are prepared to do to succeed.
