Entry #160

Super Chibi Knight's Kickstarter is still truckin' along, we're trying to reach a stretch goal (or "stretch quest" as I like to call them) to add some cool stuff! Will you join the cause and push us a little closer?


Luis and I are still picking away at the wrestling game for Pico Day. You can check the progress here!

I'm starting to understand why there aren't very many good wrestling games out there... there's a lot going on and lots of simultaneous things that can interfere with each other (running, rope bouncing, turnbuckle climbing, being inside/outside the ring, picking up chairs, punching, grappling, slamming, air maneuvers etc.) Dealing with different sized characters grappling with each other is also a challenge!

If you have someone nearby (or two someones) bring them over and try playing all at once and see if anything breaks!

P1 - ARROWS + Numpad 0, Numpad Del, Numpad Enter

P2 - AWSD + Z + X + C

P3 - IJKL + , + . + /

WOW !!!!! Nice

BoMToons responds:

Did you play?

It feels very good, but I don't find a way to get out or in the ring, and it will be hard to play with three people in the same keyboard, maybe with tools like Joytokey or something similar.

BoMToons responds:

yeah, there's no way to leave or enter the ring yet... but soon!

We will have a singleplayer campaign with enemy AI I think, but I wanted to keep the option open to have up to 4 players too, just in case people want to use gamepads or something.

Pledged! :) And the Pico wrestling game looks really awesome so far!

BoMToons responds:

Thanks man, I really appreciate the pledge!

Hopefully we can actually finish the wrestling game in time for pico day.

Gook luck on the streeeetch!

And the wrestling game is shaping up well so far! I really like running and going off the ropes, makes me all excited to flying kick or clothesline some people.

BoMToons responds:


You're right, we should make one of the moves a clothesline for sure. Right now I have dash+punch = shoulder thrust, but clothesline would probably fit better there.

I'm mostly excited to see some of the larger wrestler sprites when Luis gets around to them.

Yep... ! It is very ... Authentic ! ;)

BoMToons responds:

ha ha, I hope that's a good thing!

Hot damn, everything is looking awesome! I hear you got Greenlit, which is cool! Welcome to the club :). The wrestling game is damn fine, looking forward to having a blast with the full version on Pico Day!

BoMToons responds:

Thanks, glad to finally join the elite club of greenlighters! Looking forward to your pico day game too!

looks pretty awesome!

BoMToons responds:

I hope it turns out that way!

About time someone made a wrestling Flash game! How do I get Vile in this!?!

BoMToons responds:

once we get the mechanics all sorted out, I'll hit you up for a sprite set :-)
