Professional Wrestling RPG: Day 230

Wrestling RPG concept by Robert Chapman

Alright, welcome to another #ThrowbackThursday. Today I’m not necessarily looking back at a classic game per se (though this image was greatly influenced by Tecmo World Wrestling on the NES), but rather I’m creating my own idea for an 8-bit professional wrestling role playing game. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this in a post on this website previously, but I definitely have shared my idea with my Patreon supporters.

A professional wrestling RPG is something I’ve been thinking about for a few weeks, and I just don’t think it exists. Think of a game where you create your ideal wrestling persona, take part in an epic over dramatic story-line, complete side quests, make friends and rivals, and make choices with dialogue options. Of course, the battles would be old-school Final Fantasy-esque.

I actually haven’t completely figured everything out, seeing as it’s not an actual game really. But I do love the idea and hell, I would definitely play something like this. It could even potentially be a free-to-play mobile game seeing as everything would be menu based. Perfect for touch screens I imagine.

So, that’s just a fun little project I’m working on. I still have to figure out how I’m going to draw the crowd, and what the battle menu will specifically look like.

Hope everyone’s having a fantastic Thursday!
