1. General Questions back to top

1.1. What Does Warsow Mean? back to top

  • First of all, Warsow was a reference to Joy Division. They were a British post-punk band of late 70's and early 80's previously named Warsaw (with an A, as in the capital of Poland).
  • Warsow quickly turned into an acronym: Warriors of Alternate Reality - Slaughters Over the Web.
  • SoLomoNK wasn't totally satisfied by the acronym and during the ongoing development searched for a new one. One which would bring a real and strong message...
  • Finally, years after, a new acronym was born. One that matches perfectly with Warsow's spirit:
Warsow is the Art of Respect and Sportsmanship Over the Web

1.2. What are Warsow's Plans and Goals? back to top

1.4. What is Warsow's "Trix" System? back to top

2. Why did you choose celshading? back to top

  • We never wanted to follow nowadays realistic hype with ultra powered GFX
  • The idea too was to reduce violence content, letting the game being clearer for gamers, and more eyes-friendly for spectators
  • Jet Set Radio (Jet Grind Radio in US) opened a very interesting way, but we were inspired by and explored comics and SF. Why celshading would fit only to manga, after all?

3. Why limit wall jump to one per 1.5 seconds? back to top

  • In a land where everybody has super powers, there would be no super heroes
  • The key to good gameplay is a good balance of rewarding and frustration
