Lemme first say thank you for letting me be here and also to address my ideas here. My name is Chris and I am just one guy with a huge wrestling game fetish. I throughly enjoy the AKI style wrestling games. Anyway allow me to get to the point here. This is a fan based, fan funded wrestling game project in hopes of bringing a wrestling game to all of us hardcore pro wrestling fans out there for the PC. This is "your" chance to help out in making a wrestling game for the PC. I value any and all input and suggestions and ideas.
Basically I literally have no idea on how to start making a wrestling game so if anyone is interested in contributing their ideas and help to make this game happen it would and could benefit us all who enjoy awesome wrestling games. If anyone here has a passion for wrestling games then your help/input would be greatly appreciated and encouraged.
I`m just gonna say I don`t plan on making any money off the game but as far as funding goes I could pay some people for their work (providing it met my approval) It would be great to have a demo out in say 6 months to a year.
Obviously the game will be made using the Unreal Engine. I guess we are going to need the following:
3. Coders (is that the same as programmers???)
I apologize if this post sounds ignorant (waiting to be flamed) but it is just an idea that I have. I am personally tired of the WWE Smackdown vs Raw games and am upset and disappointed us PC gamers don`t have much of a selection of wrestling games for the PC. If I am missing anything guys please feel free to correct or edit this thread.
Right now I am just looking for some help, the game would play/be like WWE No Mercy. I am not demanding anyone for help but whatever you could help/contribute towards the game would be fine. If we could get together maybe 6 wrestler models and some basic move animations and of course a decent wrestling ring and just accomplish a simple one on one match type that would be perfect!
The move animations to start with would be:
"regular grapple animation"
"punch receive animations"
"kick receive animations"
"bodyslam receive animation"
"suplex receive animation"
"irish whip execution animation"
"irish whip receive animation"
"clothesline receive animation"
"drop kick animation"
"drop kick receive animation"
"top rope climbing animation"
"top rope climbing down animation"
"top rope jumping off animation"
The above animations are just a standard example.
Like I said, if you help contribute towards this project you will have credit given with the making of the game and if applicable upon my approval I can provide limited funding for things that I am specifically looking for.
On a final note, maybe we could hold polls. One of the first polls would be to decide on what to call this intended wrestling game.
