CHIKARA: Action Arcade Wrestling (CAAW) is an evolution of wrestling arcade games from the 90’s! Developed in Unreal Engine 4, CAAW will feature:
  • fun, fast-paced arcade-style 2.5D action
  • detailed arena and wrestler edit mode
  • a simple 2-action-button control scheme, ideal for gamepad or keyboard
  • hundreds of unique animations
  • many different match types, including trios bouts
  • realistic cloth and rope physics
  • diverse weapons selection
  • the zany and colorful cast of characters from global cult phenomenon, CHIKARA!
Nothing is off limits!
Whether it's a simple drop toe hold, or a plasma blast to the face, CAAW gives users complete control over all the crazy action! Borrowing elements from both wrestling and fighting games, CAAW opens the wacky world of professional wrestling up even wider, granting the user power to employ not just traditional wrestling holds, but lasers, fireballs, rocket launchers and more!

Updates, Updates, Updates!
Professional wrestling games offer infinite possibilities! There are always more things to add. CAAW will continue to expand in the areas of match types, creation/mod tools, weapons, animations, roster, arenas, etc. We’re going to build a strong gameplay foundation first. Then from there… the sky’s the limit!

heard about this game on pro wrestling x steam forum. was interested in it till I watched the video of lightening and other magical powers. best of luck on whatever game you are making here. I was looking for a wrestling game.

@deathrow_nzl Those over-the-top moves are just grapple moves. So if you don't want any wrestlers to have them, you can just leave them out. Totally optional. However just so you know, as of this moment, I am re-naming one of those moves to "hocus pocus fairy mumble jumble"

It looks good.. I just hope they make all the magic fireballs and energy blasts optional in the gameplay so you can play it like a normal wrestling game without all this hocus pocus fairy mumble jumble
