Promotion Wars is a text-based Wrestling Booking Simulator by Adam Jennings (me!). From 2000 to 2002, it was widely considered to be the #1 game of its kind.
Wait, what is a text-based Wrestling Booking Simulator?
Know the British football management series, Football Manager? Turn the clock back to the late-90's / early 00's versions when it was known as Championship Manager, and you get the idea. No fancy 3D graphics or animations, just static screens, played with a mouse.
Now swap running a football club with running a wrestling promotion. Swap playing a weekly football match with booking a weekly wrestling show. Swap the transfer market with signing wrestlers to your promotion. Throw in contracts, morale, injuries, stats, moving from day to day... you get the picture.
Okay, so how do I play it and how much does it cost?
First, download it from right here. You download and install the game onto your Windows PC or laptop, then you download a Data Pack to play (that's what contains all the wrestlers and promotions, there are Data Packs that represent various eras of wrestling, or modern day - take your pick). Need help downloading and installing? Here's a step-by-step for new players.
The game is completely free. You get the full game, to keep forever, with no adverts or any catches.
So what is the 'Remastered Era' all about?
As I mentioned above, Promotion Wars was a popular game in the early 2000's. Then I stepped away from the game and it remained unchanged for about 16 years. In the Summer of 2021, I decided to start a long-term project to move the game forward again, making big changes and improvements on a step-by-step basis. The first release of the Remastered Era was the 21st Anniversary Edition, released on 7th October 2021. This version continues to be developed, with regular updates released every few months.
If you're enjoying the game, sign up free to the Promotion Wars Arena where you can download new Data Packs, letting you play games in various different eras like the 80's, 90's and 00's!
Thank you for checking out the game and keep checking for the latest updates!
