Wrestling simulators are still a thing. I remember playing them long ago back when text-based role-playing was cool and YouTube was little more than digital sperm. Anyway, a new wrestling management simulator called Total Extreme Wrestling 2016 has gone live from developers Grey Dog Software.
Blues spotted the news over on the official Grey Dog Software website, where they made it known that the wrestling sim is currently available. Not only that, but you can also get your hands on a free demo.
The demo will allow you to get in some game time with the sim and then proceed to upgrade to the full thing if it’s the sort of game that tickles your fancy enough to whittle down the dollar bills in your wallet.
As mentioned on the site, the game includes some brand new features as players take on the role of potentially becoming the next Vince McMahon or the next Paul Heyman…
“In the TEW series, you play the role of a wrestling promoter. It is up to you to try and lead your chosen company to the top of the industry, along the way dealing with prima donna superstars, wars and alliances with other wrestling companies, and the demands of TV corporations! Bigger and more packed with enhanced features than ever before, the game takes its extremely popular predecessor TEW2013 and adds over 500 new features and improvements, including many long-awaited additions requested by the fans themselves.”
Players will have to setup house shows, try to land a TV deal to get their show on the air, and try to put on good enough content to keep it on the air… opposite of TNA right now.
If players want to take it to the next step, they’ll have to budget wisely, spend big on budding superstars, and try hard to compete in the cutthroat business of building a wrestling promotion.
This sims have always been fun despite their lo-fi visual appeal. In the case of Total Extreme Wrestling 2016, the game carries a fairly hefty price tag of $34.95. Hopefully those 500 new features are worth it.
