Action Arcade Wrestling

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!
