How the silly Super Mega Baseball perfects pitching

Super Mega Baseball has a few fairly goofy sensibilities about it, but somehow, it manages to deliver one of the most mechanically satisfying takes on the sport I've ever played. I'm not alone in that observation — Polygon's resident sports games experts named it their favorite athletic title of the year. Of course, that's not Super Mega Baseball's only charm; you can also use it to turn your friends and co-workers into giant-headed infielders. You can also fulfill your lifelong dream of hitting the field with Scott Bakula, assuming that is, in fact, your lifelong dream.

Check out the Overview video above to see us play a few innings of Super Mega Baseball, and read our interview with the game's small development studio on how this arcade-style sports game got made.
