The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is partnering with indie game developer Frozen Codebase to bring its “Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.” brand of modern roller derby to the virtual world, with its own video game.
“We have long thought the sport was begging to be immortalized in game form, especially considering not everyone is willing to take the risks we do on the flat track. Now everyone can be a rollergirl — all of the fun, with none of the bruises!” said “Mercy Less” the derby association’s PR chair.
“We’re confident this game will create a whole new segment of roller derby fanatics,” said “Crackerjack,” the president of WFTDA.
Frozen Codebase sponsors the roller derby association and tow of its Wisconsin-based teams: the Milwaukee BrewCity Bruisers and the Madison Mad Rollin’ Dolls
“We’ve become totally immersed in this culture” said Frozen Codebase president Ben Geisler. “It’s real, it’s punk, it’s action and attitude and it’s begging to become an exciting, action-packed video game!”
This should rank up there with the new video games for bull riding and competitive eating.
