Tabletop gaming and pro-wrestling collide! Hot off the launch of their Kickstarter, we speak to Steven Dalton & Dante Richardson, two of the developers of Micro Titans: Wrestling, a unique card & dice game capturing the magic and drama of professional wrestling. In the case of this first season of the game, MicroMania, the game is set in the 87-93 golden era of wrestling.
Steven is a video game programmer, life-long wrestling fan, and creator/vision holder to Micro Titans: Wrestling, who entrusted Dante (editor at Inside The Ropes magazine) and his wealth of pro-wrestling knowledge to help shape the game to fit the golden era vibe in aesthetic and gameplay.
We talk game mechanics – specifically how to emulate that pro-wrestling feel in a card & dice game. We see some of the beautiful game art by Carlos Aurelio. We even talk a little about how Joe Hendry had a major hand in game development
As mentioned, the Kickstarter for this project is LIVE and running until March 31st. You can make your pledge – did we mention Zak’s a huge tabletop geek? You know he pledged – at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/micro-titans/micromania/description.
Keep an eye on the Smark & Friends platform here on Love Wrestling. Steven was kind enough to send a prototype of the game, and we’ll be playing and unboxing very soon!
