“TREX and Muscle Sam: A new Kickstart!” is the new installment in the “TREX and Muscle Sam” universe, born in 2009 with the game “TREX and Muscle Sam: Big Trouble in SPF” and deepened with the Italian comic series in 2010 comprised of 25 issues .
This new game is a reboot of the original adventure game. It will broaden the universe created in “Big Trouble in SPF” and the “TREX and Muscle Sam” comics, featuring a new story with both old and new characters.
It’s very hard to explain the plot of the game without making big spoilers, so the plot described in the teaser will be very synthetic:
Two failed tag team wrestlers, TREX and Muscle Sam, try to achieve success with unorthodox methods, but in the end who plays with fire gets burned!
The setting is a world where pro wrestling is real: the wrestlers are not acting, they’re actually the character they play and the storylines are real life.
The two protagonists, TREX and Muscle Sam, are the sons of two legends of the tag team wrestling working in the same company where their fathers had a fundamental role in its creation. Unlike their fathers, TREX and Sam are not very successful on the ring and don’t have many fans.
TREX is an egocentric maniac that tries desperately to achieve success, but is actually an insecure nerd on the inside. He’s Muscle Sam childhood friend and he’s one of the few people that can understand what he says.
Muscle Sam most distinctive tract is that he’s an anthropomorphic cat, but it’s not a weird occurrence in a world where everyone impersonates their gimmick. He’s not a very talkative guy, mostly because very few people can understand what he says. What Sam thinks is a mystery: sometimes he acts like a very brilliant person, sometimes like an instinctive animal.
