The game was released in October 2017, says Adam Boyes, co-CEO of Iron Galaxy. “We were just thinking, talking about different types of competitive games and Royale games, and our co-CEO, Chelsey Glasgow, was like ‘We should be doing wrestling’,” he says. “And then the whole brainstorming session turned into what it would be like if you could suffocate someone from a 40 story building.”

The demonstration starts with a character creation screen. Iron Galaxy emphasizes that customization is essential in the game, with a huge range of body types, faces, costumes and accessories available for players to create their own monstrous or magnificent identity.

“Some of us took down our characters, like my shirtless chef: I’ve been playing him for three years now, you’re almost becoming that character,” he says. “And that’s what we’re really excited about. Because if you think of a lot of streamers, they have a character in the game. And we’re excited to see what kind of characters they’re going to build.”

The game moves to the pre-match lobby, the Battle Barge, where fighters test grappling hooks and worm. The barge transports players to their destination, Grapital City, ultimately pulling them into the clouds so they can parachute. A large area blocks a specific part of town, so you will fight in a different area of ​​the island each time: Boyes estimates that an average match is shorter than a typical battle royale game, 12 to 15 minutes .
