I love this idea and can't wait to check it out!
Doing The Job (Dark Match Edition)
A downloadable game
After 35 years in the business, "The Queen of Pain" Latisha Chains is hanging up the boots and retiring from professional wrestling. In her honor, Runnels County Wrestling has assembled a special 16-person invitational tournament to crown... THE QUEEN'S CUP CHAMPION.
You have all been booked to participate in this prestigious tournament. You have NOT been booked to WIN this tournament. This is a story about people who lose. This is NOT a story about losers.
Doing The Job is a Descended From The Queen game about a group of wrestlers booked to lose a prestigious tournament. Players will take turns answering questions about their experiences in the tournament, their feelings towards the other wrestlers, and how they view the person destined to win the Queen's Cup at the end of the night.
When all is said and done, it's up to you to decide: was the pain of losing (and the pain you put your body through) worth the experience of being here?
Dark Match Edition
This is an early access, art-free version of the game, currently in active development/playtesting. Some card text, designs, and art will change during development.
All profits from the game will go towards commissioning art to fill out the game's Champion Cards.
When the final game is ready for it, the price will increase to $20; anyone who bought the Dark Match edition will get the Main Event edition of the game for free, in their itch.io library.
In order to download this game you must purchase it at or above the minimum price of $10 USD. You will get access to the following files:
Support this game at or above a special price point to receive something exclusive.
If you buy the game at this price point, I can turn around and immediately commission a piece of art to use on one of the Champion Cards in the game.
In exchange, I'll let you do one of the following:
- Look through the game's Champion Cards, pick a wrestler, and describe what you think they look like to me. I'll then take your notes, and pass them to the artist as visual reference, ensuring your vision is canon within the world of Doing the Job.
- Add a wrestler of your own design to the game; this will either replace one of the Champion Cards in the deck, or add an additional one, your choice. Describe them to me, name them, and I'll hand that off to the artist, and your creation will live on in the deck forever.
Please note: I retain right-of-refusal on anything submitted through this reward tier.
