Welcome to FrozenCherry.com! My name is James Romeo. I am a
Digital Artist and I currently live in Atlanta, GA. This site is home to the FrozenCherry
Hockey Team Management Game. I have been able to develop the project in my free
time with support from my good friends, family and fans. Thank you Mom, David,
Kevin, Bruce, Matt, Linda, Brian, Jeff and the many others who have touched my
life and this project along the way.
The vision for the FrozenCherry Hockey Team Management Game came to me in
August of 1999. At that time, I had been searching the web for a fantasy hockey
league that was based on fictional teams and fictional players that would develop
within a fictitious world. I found a roleplaying fantasy hockey league which was
a lot of fun but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. That is when I
decided to design my own fantasy hockey game.
I thought about the way I wanted to play this game from a hockey fan and game
player's perspective. Accessible through the web from any computer, automatic
updates, rosters that evolve season after season and simple statistics that
really make a difference. I didn't want playing this game to become a full time job. I
envisioned it as a lunch break league you can check up on once a day or once a
week and always get a lot of enjoyment and satisfaction from it.
In 2000, I had created a working version with a set of core features which are
still a part of the current design. After operation for 8 months and an active
membership of a great group of hockey fans, the league was regretfully taken offline.
I pursued a college education over the years that followed. The project took a back
seat because it was difficult to find free time between school and work. I can say
that the time I found to work on the hockey game has always been personally rewarding
and that has kept the project alive.
Everything from the database structure to the way games are simulated has been
redesigned or refined from the original concept. The interface and
graphics are new. There are more leagues and more teams to choose from. Almost
every aspect of the game is automated to ensure that the league is always
moving forward and stays updated daily. The game, as it is today, has been the result of
passion and perseverance so that hockey fans from around the world will be able
to share our love for the game in a fun and spirited world of fiction and fantasy.
Thank you once again for visiting FrozenCherry.com. Feel free to join the action!
I hope to see you in the game!
