Tidying up some core gameplay this past week, the guys fixed the looping portion of the recently added Fisherman Suplex pin. And while they were focused on the finer details of the suplex family of moves they couldn’t help themselves and began discussing and designing all of the ways a suplex (or variations thereof) need to be prepped for proper mid-move collision detection.
Why? Because it needs to be possible at various points during a match to not just suplex an opponent in the ring, but you want the freedom to suplex from any position to any other reasonable position. And if there are any objects between your opponent and where you want them to land? Well then…that shit best be ready to BREAK, son! So far things are breaking apart just fine. And even flammable things are burning and breaking like they should be. Too hardcore? No such thing, Dorothy 😉
We’re all pretty stoked and proud of the Pro Wrestling X chapter in Patrick Hickey’s new book The Minds Behind the Games and early reviews for the game are also smelling what PWX is cooking,
“Hickey’s curiosity ultimately leads to the book’s most compelling chapter, which documents the development process of a game called Pro Wrestling X. This is a game that began as a dare on an Internet forum before it spent a decade running the brutal gauntlet of drama that comes with such an origin story. It’s the unrelenting perseverance of creator Dave Wishnowski that keeps the game alive through multiple tragedies — tragedies that would have shut down pretty much any other video game. It’s a crazy ride, and I’m definitely curious to learn more about Pro Wrestling X after having read about it.”
