RPS@PAX 2023: We chat with the WrestleQuest devs about broken noses and busting RPG traditions

3, 2, 1, FIGHT!

Liam and I had a fun time chatting with the folks over at Mega Cat Studios about their upcoming wrestling RPG WrestleQuest last year at PAX West, and this time at PAX East we finally cornered them in the ring for a proper interview.

Watch below to learn about how the developers created their zero to hero story, how they're addressing myths and persaonl issues in the world of pro wresting, as well as sharing a story about how one of the team got their nose broken in a wrestling accident during development.

My main take away from the interview is how much of the RPG incorporates all aspects of wrestling, not just the ring fights we see on TV. Another interesting thing is that Mega Cat reached out to a handful of real-life wrestlers to ask for their permission to use their likeness in the game - not an easy feat to secure, I'm sure.

If you'd like to see more indie game spotlights like WrestleQuest, we have plenty of PAX East highlights. Keen for some Resident Evil-style horror? How about a teen highschool drama about dinosaurs? Or maybe a fast a furious platformer about escaping Hell with just a stapler? We've covered those games and more over on the RPS@PAX tag.
