Go one step further than
the screenshots and watch video clips of the games in action! I've got my own
official "channel" at the site, where you can see montages of existing games and
previews of forthcoming ones. You may also like to post some clips of your own
to share your experiences in my games...
Although I can't accept fans as
"friends" on my own FaceBook page, this Facebook group is the next best thing and
allows players of the games to stay connected. Please note that it is
currently run by fans for fans and does not involve me personally...
My official Twitter account to fend off impostors. It's

The MPire Mall
The original and most enduring Wrestling MPire fansite
- which is full of
alternative graphics for everything from individual characters to entire
arenas. And if that
inspires you to have a go yourself, your contributions are welcome too.
There's also lots of lively discussion about my work and how to get the best
out of it...
MPire Mall FaceBook Group
Put a face to the names you'll find on the fan sites
courtesy of this FaceBook group dedicated to the modding community.
Their focus is primarily on the wrestling games and their own interpretations
of them. Fans of my original work should stick to
this fan page...
You won't see Wrestling MPire
2012 from me, but the modders at Wrestling MPire Creations have done
an impressive job of bringing the old universe up to date with lots of WWE
Wrestling MPire HD
This spin-off from the MPire Mall forums allows you
to effortlessly follow the progress that Simon Sayers is making on his own
Wrestling MPire HD mod. It's a stylistic homage to the original game
rather than a photo-realistic overhaul...
MPire Mall Wrestling
A fansite... of the MPire Mall fansite?! Or more
accurately, an inventive little e-Fed that takes the name and conducts lots of
matches under that banner - showing just how far modding can go. There are
lots of interesting new characters rendered in a modified graphical style, and
there are even TV-style videos of the action...
The Encore Mall
A worthy rival
to the original MPire Mall which offers more of the same in a different
format. Like any sensible shopper, peruse them both to make sure you have
everything you need. As the title suggests, this one seems to lean towards
Wrestling Encore rather than its later incarnations...
See where my iconic wrestling games rank in
Gaming Ring's huge database of EVERY one that ever existed! From the
biggest mainstream success to the smallest independent effort, they're all
featured here. There's also an opportunity to discuss the contributions to
this popular genre...
As the blissfully simple title dictates, this is
the ultimate warehouse for downloads of all kinds - from games to utilities.
Being the most popular, it's also the ultimate battleground for developers
competing for downloads! In that respect, many of my games can be found
reigning supreme as the most popular independent releases in their genre...
If it's independent games you want, look no further
than this fine collection of impressive releases. I'm normally embarrassed to
link to other independent efforts, but this website seeks out the cream of the
crop and presents them to you in a perfectly credible way. The games are also
supplemented by some encouraging articles about the independent scene
Originally a 2D-orientated language, Blitz
now offers the
best 3D game creation as well. It's what I used between
2002 and 2008 to make my 3D projects. The language and its editor are much easier
to work with than its Dark BASIC counterpart. However, it
definitely isn't as easy as they would have you believe. The work you put
into learning should pay off eventually though, as they even offer to
publish your better games. You can download a demo of either version from their site...
Another BASIC language, which focuses mainly on 3D games. The graphics tend to look better with this engine, but the abysmal editor
makes programming a nightmare. In any case, you can download a demo of the language
from their site and see for yourself...
DIV Games Studio
The official site of the product that I used to make most of my early 2D
games. The language itself is by far the easiest you'll find, but
there are a lot of limitations. Its graphical capabilities go no further
than the 16-bit consoles (as it only accepts 256 colours),
and the sound is of
equally poor quality. Worst of all is that the games run in DOS - so a lot of
modern computers have major problems. It may have
evolved since I last checked in though, so visit their site for the
In theory, this is the only system requirement that my
games have! Make sure you have the latest DirectX drivers installed
(and an operating system that supports them) and they'll increase your
chances of sailing the choppy seas of PC game compatibility...
The company that manages my
online publications. Their secure "wrapper" allows you to distribute trial
versions of a full game, which can then be activated on purchase. It's
potentially an effective sales method, but the added weight of the
business front-end can cause slowdown in some games. The team are friendly
and co-operative though; which is a refreshing change in this industry!
ZD Soft Game Recorder
The product I
use to record footage of my games, which is then posted at YouTube.
It's not as infuriatingly flawed as some of its freeware equivalents, and
there's a perfectly generous demo build that merely asks that you carry the
company's URL. You may need a strong computer to record games without causing
If you're suffering from
the DOS-based limitations of DIV Games Studio, help is at hand with
this collection of emulators and utilities. It's a little on the complex
side, but it's your only hope of getting those charming games of
yesteryear to work on Windows XP...

An incredibly useful and easy-to-use program (made
in Blitz no less), which converts any given image into an authentic
icon file. I used it to make many of the new icons for my own titles...
One Warrior Nation
Former wrestling legend, the Ultimate Warrior, has an electrifying web
presence where he channels his passion to inspire others. There's a nice
overlap with many of the philosophies you will have already been schooled in
here at MDickie.com...
The Yoga Of Jesus
Paramahansa Yogananda's celebrated book about the hidden meaning of Christ's
teachings, which inspired The You Testament...
