Gladihaters features an interesting fusion of fighting, strategy and management as you become the warden of a prison and clone criminals to use them in fight arenas.
In Gladihaters you are a prison warden who has just one year to win the Prison of the Year Award or be forced to resign. You do this by managing your prison, hiring the optimal employees for each department, researching technology and… cloning criminals and making them fight for you in bloody arena battles.
You’ll start your Gladihaters fighting empire with a selection of standard prisoners, but as you progress you’ll be able to clone your best fighters and even buy patented formulas to clone historical criminal characters. During fights you give your fighters commands and they respond according to their AI and personality. If they manage to survive through 100 fights then they’ll even win their freedom!
It’s an interesting concept that looks set to offer a nice mixture of strategy, brutal combat and dark humor. Playtesting starts in October so sign up now to be one of the first into the arena.
