The developers interview Chainsaw Warrior's original creator - Stephen Hand!

22 února 2014

Hi there, I'm Tomas Rawlings, the designer and propducer of trhe digital version and I'm really pleased to say that I got the opportunity to interview the original creator of the 1987 boardgame, Stephen Hand. Here's an excerp:

Tomas: Some have said that Chainsaw Warrior is like a first-person shooter as a boardgame - it pre-dates Doom by 6 years - how does this assertion fit your view of the game?

Stephen: Of course the FPS label didn’t exist in 1986 but you only have to look at the game to see that’s exactly what it is. The paradigm videogamers are now so familiar with: first person involvement, arming the character, exploring a deadly environment, the Boss villain, the BFG, the distribution and diversity of enemies, fight after bloody fight against horrific creatures, even the transition from day to night -- Chainsaw Warrior is practically the template. A number of people in the industry have commented that the influence of Chainsaw Warrior has long gone unrecognised. ... I am actually very wary of suggesting influence when the reality may well be coincidence; precedence and similarity do not equal imitation. But if you simply locate Chainsaw Warrior in a timeline of games, it’s pretty suggestive. I think in my Designer’s Notes I called it a video game without electricity.

The interviews are on Board Game Geek:


Thanks!

Chainsaw Warrior from Games Workshop is the classic nail-biting game for one strong-nerved player! It's the year 2032 and spatial warping has opened a hole into another dimension in the midst of the old municipal buildings at the heart of Manhattan. Bizarre and dangerous creatures are flooding into our dimension, intent on destruction. Behind their actions is a controlling intelligence known as 'Darkness', who intends to drag New York back into the warp – destroying it utterly!

Air strikes, ground assaults and WMDs have all failed to stop the swarming forces from beyond. All that remains is a single hope: a shadowy ex-special forces soldier, enhanced for combat and known only as 'Chainsaw Warrior'. Equipped with all the latest high-tech armaments, he must battle his way through to the trans-dimensional ground-zero and defeat Darkness. Not only are there swarms of zombies, mutants, traps, Chaos Agents and other twisted denizens between him and Darkness, time is the enemy too! Only an hour remains to save New York before it is torn from our world forever.

First published as a solo boardgame in 1987, it has been updated, translated and re-engineered for the digital generation. In Chainsaw Warrior it's just you against both the clock and a tide of evil! Can you prevail where all others have failed? You only have 60 minutes to save New York!

Chainsaw Warrior is the digital treatment to a 1987 solitary style board game. Yes, you read that right, board game & solitary style together. Amazing, I know. Leave it to the fine folks at Games Workshop, known world wide for making table top games, to invent such a thing.


30 Second Review

+ Very challenging!

+ Stats sheet, dice, character customization through random rolls.

+ Each game is a unique experience due to the randomness of the dice and cards.

- Solitary style game that may get repetitive and boring over time.

- Can reach the end, but it may be impossible to kill the boss even if you do.

One of the first Games Workshop board games of the same name, this single player card and dice based game faithully recreates the experience in the digital world.

Drenched in 80s sci-fi design pathos, Chainsaw Warrior drips in macho macheesmo and over the top mutated baddies.

Gameplay is based off rolls of the dice, and drawing of cards consisting of "Traps", "Enemy" and "Empty". Each drawing of a card will subtract 30 seconds from the timer. It's a simple mechanic that's easy to grasp and makes for some truly random game sessions. Controls are simple, sounds and graphics are passable, and the UI presents everything on screen that is needed in a clear and easy to read format.

Staying true to the original , it can be quite challenging and depending on the luck of the draw, you could be restarting within the first few minutes. Not for those who will be frustrated easily with "unfair" losses and bad luck. Those looking for something unique, and a decent time waster that you can hop in and play for a few quick sessions should consider this a go.

Single player card game where you dig through two 54 card decks on a time limit to defeat the very uniquely named big bad, "Darkness". Most card games have enough randomization because of the shuffling of cards, luck of the draw, and so forth, but for some reason Chainsaw Warrior feels the need to add die rolls to almost every action, including stats during character creation. On Hard difficulty the game can be over before its even begun because of bad die rolls for stats or bad card draws for equipment (because you're only allowed to chose catagory, not specific items). [Quick anecdote: Mark Rosewater at WotC noted that the main reason the Star Wars CCG failed was because fans hated having to roll dice for everything in a card game.]

Even if you perfectly pick your loadout and get decent stats, many cards in the play decks have incredibly gamebreaking abilities. For example, one card makes you reshuffle all the cards in the deck and start over, another will break your sole win condition weapon, and another will make you lose several turns (randomly decided how many, of course). The most frustrating part is these cards might as well say "You Lose!"... but they just tease you into playing an unwinnable game. Many cards also have stat debuffs (zombie venom or radiation) that stack over time and are difficult to remove, providing yet another way for you to lose the game.

Of course, being a cheap, direct iOS port also brings a slew of other issues. A touch screen interface with gigantic oversized buttons, "click-click-click to play" gameplay, and worst of all, savescumming. The decks are shuffled at the start of the game and are never reshuffled unless you trigger a certain trap. While this is realistic, it makes for bad video game gameplay. To put it simply, you can save the game every card and reload if you make a huge mistake or if you want to redo a fight (even the end boss!). This removed all of the challenge and distilled the game down into simple die rolls and restarts. While it is ignorable, you will still probably restart the game when you pull one of the previously mentioned "almost game-ending" cards.

Chainsaw Warrior was probably a lot more fun to play sitting on the couch on a weekend afternoon but is a huge headache in its poorly ported video game form. Only recommended for nostalgic value or for owners of the original game.

Very Good game. Never played the original physical game, but i'd imagine that this would do it great justice.

Its ridiculously hard, even on easy difficultly the entire mechanic of the game is there to screw you over, its fun but irritating, frustrating and sometimes downright hilarious when it all goes wrong in just a few turns (especially when you've had some really lucky rolls whilst creating your characters stats)

Ive not finished the game yet (even on easy) but i can imagine that it would extremely satisfying to finally get through.

If you are a fan of the "Choose you own Adventure" books this will probably be something you'll enjoy.

Chainsaw Warrior is a game that is very challenging, and is not for everyone. For those that can get into Card and Dice based game play, then you will find this a fun and challenging treat. Based/Remade to resemble the 1987 board game, this game pits one cyber commando on a near impossible mission to wade through tons of traps, mutants, abominations and zombies until he meets and defeats his hardest foe yet, Darkness!

The game uses a simple D6 based rule system. One of the really neat features of the game is you start off by rolling your character stats and equipment options. The built in tutorial does an ok job of explaining everything, there where a few occasions where i was left wondering how the game decided on a certain number i had to meet or beat.

This game is no pushover, and sometimes a bad roll of the dice will just ruin you. For me, that's the fun in it, trying to bounce back from an already bad situation. Even though the odds are stacked against you, there are plenty of goodies and items to help you along your way. All items offer different perks and stat boosts, allowing you to approach the game in a few different ways. Sporting three difficulty modes, it helps oneself get used to how the game works and allows for you to experiment with weapon and item combinations.

Its a simple game at its core, but it has excellent replayability due to its hard difficulty curve and random encounters/events. Pick it up if you are into boardgames or looking for a challenge. The Doctor Approves.

This is a game which must sell entirely on nostalgia value.

I've never played the original - I bought it because I'm a fan of Games Workshop's non-core lines (Blood Bowl and Necromunda in particular are favorites), but I'd never even heard of this.

The game is a series of dice rolls with no real strategic decisions to be made. The largest amount of influence you have is to decide what gear you buy at the start of the game, after that a Choose Your Own Adventure novel allows more player agency. You get to decide whether to try to shoot before engaging in melee with enemies. That's the full sum of your available decisions in at least 90% of the average game.

I suppose if you are really bored it might be worth it at 50% off. Do not buy this expecting the Games Workshop magic, though. This is one of their earliest offerings and it shows.
