Exclamation TEW2013 Is Announced

I'm pleased to announce that we can now officially confirm that my next game for Grey Dog Software will be Total Extreme Wrestling 2013, the sixth game in the series.

The game has been in development since early this year and we are aiming to release it in December 2012; please note that this is only an estimated date, there's still a lot of work to be done on the project so it may get pushed into early 2013 if necessary.

As usual, the ever-popular Developer's Journal - a series of daily posts where I reveal what additions and improvements will be in TEW2013 - will be launched to lead-up to the release. The Journal is due to start in late August \ early September.

To whet your appetite, there is one piece of information that I will reveal now; people generally seem to feel that the jump from TEW2008 to TEW2010 was the biggest and best the series has had, featuring as it did over 200 new additions and improvements....I can confirm that TEW2013 already has over 200 further additions and improvements, and is on course to go well over 350.

--- Initial TEW2013 F.A.Q. ---

How much will it cost?

TEW2013 will be our usual price for a full game, $34.95, and will be secured by ELicense. (TEW2010 will subsequently be lowered in price post-release.)

Will there be a demo?

It will be the same method we always use - we will release a limited-time trial version one week before the official release so that people can get a look at all the improvements and eliminate any last minute bugs \ installation issues.

Is it written from scratch?

No; as with the previous versions, this is written on top of the previous iteration. This is better for everyone as it means I don't have to spend three months "reinventing the wheel" by writing the basics that already work perfectly well in their current form, and it means the "core" of the game has already been play-tested by thousands of users pretty extensively for several years! That isn't to say that the game will look like TEW2010, as the UI is getting a makeover.

What about my TEW2010 database that I've spent years working on?

Databases from the previous version can be easily upgraded to 2013.

Can I be a tester? Or be involved in the development?

Sorry, the development and testing teams are already finalised and hard at work.

Phenomenal news, I just knew a new TEW was on the way, I could feel it in my bones.

Can't wait for the journal.

All righty, guess it was a logical choice. Didn't play the last one much, but always interested in this kind of game so I'm pretty excited.

Amazing news, just getting exited by the prospect of the Dev. Journal. Really interested to see where you take the C -Verse as well after 3 years have passed, hope ZEN have survived

Great news of course! Can't wait for the release date, though I'm saddened that this of course means lengthy saves are going to come to their ultimate stopping point.

Yes!

So glad you opted for TEW 13, can't wait to see how the Cornellverse has developed.

Now I need to figure out exactly how the QoC story progresses.

Epic.

I'm not quite ready to be rid of 2010 though. Maybe in a year or so I'll surrender to the will of the masses and get it.

Expect me to do a trial diary

Will NOTBPW be fixed???

Will SWF stop jumping from Cult to National/International?

Will we get the abilities to transfer saves???

Fantastic news. Just a fresh interface and some minor imports from the WMMA series could make TEW a lot better than it already is (and it's great as it is - I still play it more than any other game I own), but I'm sure several all-new features will put it onto a whole other level of awesomeness.

Number 1 with a bullet on my list for Santa, Baby Jesus and every other gift-giving quasi-deity

Great news.

Although I have spent the last month trying to perfect my database...it'll all be good practice for TEW13.
