Description

Two boxy champions face off at the centre of a sumo wrestling ring, looking as though they were origami constructions folded from some ornate paper stock. As would any other sumo wrestlers, they crouch down, face off, tap the floor, then proceed to attempt to upset their opponent or push them out of the ring. But where sumotori are sturdy and solid, bands of muscle like iron beneath layers of weighty ballast, these would-be wrestlers are flimsy and uncertain, teetering with every movement and threatening to fall over at the slightest shuffle regardless of actions taken against them by the opponent.

Porrasturvat - Stair dismount helped to demonstrate just how far a little ragdoll physics could take a game... now two self-balancing rigs are used to uplift an entire sport.

Trivia

This game was gobsmackingly written to compete in the 96k game category at the Breakpoint 2007 demo competition, which it won. Because the demoscene is about nothing if not optimization, for purists a "bare bones" version was released weighing in at only 29k!
