Tao City lives and breaths New Baseball. Merchandising and Advertising that proclaims their loyalties to the sport and the celebrity players are everywhere. Statues of great legend players line the entrances to the city where they’re idolized and sanctified.
The year is 2172. The Corporation is the big brother of the city and the inventor of artificial gravity into the game. The Corporation basically owns and operates New Baseball, the teams and the players. However, there’s not much the public can do about it – or they’ll lose their beloved sport.
Early development concept. I wanted to create a city that was futuristic, nostalgic (1930′s baseball), and a city that was obsessed with the sport of New Baseball.
