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

22 febrero 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!

A discrete but worthy adaptation of the great Workshop Company´s classic boardgame: easy to learn, hard to win.

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.

Awesome oldschool table top gaming but on the PC! Played this game when i was a kid and its exactly as fun a it was then. Graphics and animations are tidy and well put together and the gameplay just keeps attracting you back for more. If you're after a challenge and you like the tabletop dice rolling style of the game play all whilst you're pretending to save New York from a giant rift of the nasties as a badass super cyborg.... then this is for you. Beating the game on easy took me a good few hours... and it reckons the original game was played using the hard setting only.. £4 well spent! :)

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.
