Pro Wrestling X has been a distant dream for Dave Wishnowski, the independent game developer who wanted more out of his wrestling videogame experience than what the big-budget titles were offering. Inspired by games like AKI's WWF No Mercy and Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 on the N64, Pro Wrestling X promised to deliver great impact, proper selling and fun competitive play like wrestling games are supposed to have, brother.
So finally, after almost 10 years of long development, fans can now get their hands on a copy of the new indie brawler. Pro Wrestling X: Uprising is a preview of sorts that allows people to purchase the game and play it, all while the game continues to be developed further as updates are offered rapidly.
It still has some rough edges, as the animations are in need of a reboot, but with the funding from this release, animations will be completely changed out in a future update.
