DescriptionTNM Tournament Edition is a pro wrestling simulator in which users create different types of tournaments and follow along as the match engine simulates the tournament matches move for move, outputting the play-by-play in readable form.
Due to its full data compatibility with TNM 7 Second Edition wrestler export files, players can download thousands of real professional wrestlers from the 1970s through today. Alternatively they are able to import an existing TNM 7 Second Edition installation's databases during the setup procedure. They can also create their own wrestlers or use the pack of 16 Fantasy Wrestlers supplied with TNM Tournament Edition.
HistoryTNM Tournament Edition is the fifth distinct product in a formerly DOS-based line of wrestling simulators, spanning 25 years and 28 releases. It is the first product since 1995's TNM 5 to focus on tournament gameplay, the first major release since 2003's TNM 7 Second Edition and the first TNM simulator written entirely for the Windows operating system.
The video game I played most back then, a text-based wrestling simulator called TNM, upended everything I knew about gaming. I wanted results and story, not platforming Mario jumps and tedious Final Fantasy-style level-grinding, and TNM — now in its seventh iteration and still obsessively updated by its German creator, Oliver Copp — delivered the goods.-- Oliver Bateman, These Fans Created Fantasy Leagues That Don’t Need Actual Sports (MEL)
Even to this day, (TNM is) an unprecedented concept, and one that allowed for an even more unlimited set of possibilities.-- Marcus K. Dowling, We killed (video game) pro wrestling. We killed the teen dream. Deal with it. (Medium.com)
TNM 7 is the best wrestling simulator ever. With its seemingly endless options and an easy to use text based format, TNM 7 has garnered quite a few fans. However, for every fan of TNM 7 there is a person who absolutely despises the game. Most of the people that dislike the game come up with weak arguments like ''it sucks because it is made in DOS and it doesn't have graphics''.-- Here's your chance to be a wrestling god (GameFAQs)
