We thank you for your support!
As we get closer to launch, we’ll be announcing more wrestlers that will be joining the game’s roster. From the entire team at Retrosoft Studios, we greatly appreciate your support and can’t wait to release even more information on the game, including the release date. We’re working on getting preorders live.
We've included an early preview of the game sprites for Warhorse. Remember, if your favorite wrestler didn't come out victorious in IndieMania, not all hope is lost. If the game has enough support once it launches, we'll be looking to do several wrestler DLC packs, one of which will be focused on some of the top participants from IndieMania!
