The Dark Army

As many of you have noticed from the teaser that we released back at King of Trios weekend, several wrestlers from CHIKARA’s past will be returning for Rudo Resurrection. So far, the nine that we have discussed are:

-Jervis Cottonbelly
-Lance Steel
-Blind Rage
-Mister ZERO
-Sumie Sakai
-Private Eye
-Worker Ant
-ShareCropper (left out of the trailer, but was shown in last weeks concept sketch)

One of the above may or may not be in the final version of the game, so for those of you that like to speculate, here’s your opportunity. Might another wrestler from CHIKARA’s past take the place of one of the above? If so, who will be removed and who will be added? With CHIKARA’s rich cast of characters, it could be anyone…

Speaking of speculation, there has been much of it regarding the shadowy figures that fill out the above image. As shown earlier in the trailer, The Order of the Neo Solar Temple have constructed a cloning chamber as seen below:

Not only have The Order of the Neo Solar Temple found a way to resurrect these “deceased” wrestlers, but they also found a way to clone them. Now this certainly spells trouble for the Tecnicos, but thankfully the Colony (Fire Ant, Soldier Ant and Green Ant) will not be alone in their fight. Joining them will be the patriarch of CHIKARA, Lightning Mike Quackenbush!

You’re Sketching Me Out!

I know, I know what you’re all thinking, “Tell us something we don’t already know, or at least something that we can’t get on our own with a quick Google search!” We realize the news hasn’t been fast and furious yet but there is a reason for this; we are shrouding this project in secrecy. There are multiple reasons for doing so, the most important is that we really want to blow you away when do show you Rudo Resurrection. Here comes some more bad news: until we have a more polished game that is close to completion, we will not be showing it off. However, we do want to keep you in the loop and will be releasing information when the time is right. The production of a video game is much different than the booking a wrestling show. Most fans understand that a wrestling card is subject to change for a number of factors; injury, travel issues, miscommunication or someone could outright accept another booking without telling the other promoters. Whatever the reason, wrestling fans are usually very forgiving when it comes to changes in the card. Video Games on the other hand… well, the players aren’t quite as forgiving. If you promise feature X and feature Y and do not deliver them in the final version of the game, you typically get referred to as a liar and your integrity is called into question by the game playing community. We here at Rogue Brains have high hopes for this game and want to give you the best experience possible, so for now we will keep most of the features under our shroud of super secrecy. When we’ve locked them down and verified that they’ll be included we will absolutely let you know about them.

Now that we’ve given you a bit of insight into how we plan to release information about game mechanics, we will leave you with one little juicy tidbit of information. Below you will find a rough sketch of UltraMantis Black’s resurrected Dark Army. If you look hard enough, you will notice a ninth wrestler from CHIKARA’s past that was not included in the final version of the trailer. Even though he didn’t make the cut, he will be included in the game.

Next week, if things break right, we hope to have a little surprise for you. Check back next Thursday for more information. Thanks for reading!
