Mega Cat Studios is currently developing WrestleQuest, a new RPG adventure, featuring a licensed roster of iconic wrestling legends, for Skybound. This strategic investment continues Skybound’s efforts to expand its global publishing footprint and to partner with top game-making talent and creative teams.
“Mega Cat Studios is an incredibly ambitious and talented team of game developers that are dedicated to their craft, reimagining retro-style entertainment in exciting and innovative ways,” said David Alpert, CEO, Skybound Entertainment. “James Deighan and the Mega Cat team embody a culture of fandom, and this closely aligns with our efforts to put fans and creators first. Retro games deliver a massive nostalgic element, and after seeing the progress and creativity on WrestleQuest, we are extremely excited about working closely on the future growth of the studio.”
“We are excited to partner with Skybound Entertainment, a true leader that goes beyond games and spans the overall entertainment industry,” said James Deighan, Founder of Mega Cat Studios. “Skybound understood our vision early on and we have had a very successful relationship in developing WrestleQuest. We can’t wait to build upon that relationship to explore our creative development process with greater access to other Skybound IP and publisher resources.”

In WrestleQuest, players assume the role of a young wrestling hopeful, on his quest to become one of the all-time greats while he powerbombs, slams, and suplexes his way to the top. Inspired by icons like the legendary “Macho Man” Randy Savage, our hero must immerse himself in the world of professional wrestling, which will not only test his athleticism but his will and conscience too.
Players will meet and interact with a host of legends as they progress through their quest, including “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Booker T, Andre The Giant, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Diamond Dallas Page, Jeff Jarrett, and many more. With tons of side missions, bonus content, and much more, this is the ultimate main event that you won’t want to miss.
