Just one more fight

And I’ll be history

Yes I will straight up

Leave your shit

And you’ll be the one who’s left

Missing me

-My Way, Limp Bizkit

___

You are a pro wrestler. One of the best there have ever been. You had a long lineage of wins and losses. Heartaches and achievements. All in all, you have a had a career worth looking back on.

But you have never reached the top of the mountain. You have never held the title that defined your promotions. And you want it so bad.

Still, it’s like they say. “The spirit’s willing. The body cannot.” You have been wrestling for so long and your body is telling you too long. Telling you it’s time to string up your boots and finally call it a day.

But not until you have won that title.

____

My Way is a game about obsession, burnout and the idea of work defining you. It’s about pushing yourself far beyond what you know you should be doing. It’s about the pain of reaching for the top. 

My Way is heavily inspired by pro wrestling of all sorts. But most of all, it’s inspired by Independent Wrestling. It’s where I have seen the most sheer passion and love for wrestling anywhere. Even too much.

This game was created as part of the Wretched & Alone Jam, a game jam organised to coincide with the release of the SRD for the Wretched & Alone system, based on Chris Bissette’s game The Wretched.

I'm going to try not to overstate this, but I really love this game. The storyline it has guided me through creating has really had some interesting ups and downs, as well as unexpected introspective moments for my character. I've sat down with this game roughly every other night, virtually rolling the dice and creating a blog entry. (I literally created a blog for my wrestler.) I actually reached a point the other night when I expected it to be over, but it turns out this guy still has legs on him. Where is this story going?

The 100d6 mechanic presents, essentially, a visual of the wrestler's sometimes slowly, sometimes, rapidly deteriorating health that can play a part in your stories. The prompts from each card, as mentioned above, create a fascinating path for your character as they make strides toward their goal. The two systems create an interesting dynamic as you try to leave things open for more things to come but also have to welcome the inevitable. 'Cause you never know - no you never know - when you're gonna go.

Went through it and it was a blast. The questions are really well thought, and using the 100d6 mechanics allow for some new things (adding dice).

I will go through this review in more depth (and in more french ^^) but it transpires a great love for the art of wrestling. Thanks. That was a story I wanted to experience ...

This is a heartfelt love poem to pro wrestling - with all its darker aspects - and I think if I played it I would cry. Well done.
