Cat Daddy Founders Discuss Original Idea For WWE Supercard, Challenges Of Developing The Game

Of all the WWE mobile games, WWE Supercard has become the most popular game to play for fans.

WWE Supercard launched in 2014 and is now in its seventh season. The game sees fans collect cards of WWE superstars and legends that do battle against other players in various match types. It is developed by Cat Daddy and published by 2K Games.

Speaking to Pocket Gamer, Cat Daddy founders Harley Howe and Patrick Wilkinson discussed how the game came together.

"The original idea for WWE SuperCard was for it to be a companion app to the console game. But it became much more as we designed and iterated on the concept. It began feeling like its own title and had its own unique hooks and gameplay while appealing to the same core audience," said Howe. "Honestly, the most challenging thing about working with an IP is meeting fan expectations. With WWE SuperCard, for example, we created an out of the box collectible card game that appeals to WWE fans of all ages. There are millions of WWE fans encompassing multiple generations of fandom out there, so the sheer variety of fans is vast, complicated and fun to tackle. We want all Macho Man fans who remember his high-flying style and incredible promos to feel like they can jump into WWE SuperCard and play as their favourite guy in the same way that we want all the New Day, Roman Reigns and John Cena fans to be able to jump in and deliver spears, Attitude Adjustments, and bring down Money in the Bank briefcases."

Wilkinson added, "The challenge is figuring out how to offer a little bit of everything and yet bring that depth of the experience together, coherently, for everyone. Our engine is really robust and affords us the ability to create new content like modes or events or card tech quickly so we can assess its strengths. Plus, all of the developer team is constantly trying out new ideas for all types of players."

Fans can download WWE Supercard on iOS and Android systems.
