In The Keep Podcast – #90 Mike Hermann (RetroMania Wrestling)

Mike Hermann is the founder of Retrosoft Studio & lead developer of RetroMania Wrestling, the epic sequel to the classic WrestleFest. The game features a cast of some of the best independent wrestlers  in the world & organizations like NWA & House of Hardcore including Colt Cabana, Zach Saber Jr, WARHORSE & Jeff Cobb as well as legends such as Tommy Dreamer, Stevie Richards & the Road Warriors. What really sets RetroMania apart from other recent wrestling games is its simplicity & focus on enjoyable arcade-style gameplay in contrast to the recent trend of simulation, harkening back to titles like WrestleMania 2000, No Mercy & the already mentioned WrestleFest.

Burning Bridges with Bridgeburner – #03 Major Arlene, James Paddock & Simpletonium

Bridgeburner is joined by fellow Doom modders Major Arlene, Simpletonium & #ThatMidiGuy Jimmy Paddock to discuss their various projects & probably also to stroke Jimmy’s ego… or hair. They probably also talk about Age of Hell, Adventures of Square & Technobox Anticolor Christ, if I were to hazard a guess.
