WWF in Your House is a wrestling game developed by Acclaim Studios Salt Lake City (formerly Sculptured Software) and published by Acclaim Entertainment for the Sega Saturn, Sony Playstation, and PC platforms.
WWF in Your House is the follow up to WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game, which was developed by Sculptured Software, and published by Midway Entertainment the previous year.
Like its predecessor, WWF in Your House was heavily influenced by Midway's Mortal Kombat franchise. Departing from earlier 16-bit era WWF licensed games developed by Sculptured Software, such as WWF Royal Rumble and WWF Raw, WWF in Your House uses digitized sprites and focuses on fast paced, strike and combo based fighting, common to the fighting games at the time.
Unlike earlier titles which grounded the gameplay in "realistic" deliberately paced grappling and momentum based combat, the action in WWF in Your House is quick and over the top, with weapons appearing out of nowhere, characters morphing shape, and characters using lightening and fire attacks. Like other games in the fighting genre, WWF in Your House also features character-specific attacks and stages. For example, the British Bulldog's list of moves includes the Union Jack Attack and his stage appears to be in front of Buckingham Palace. In game commentary is provided by Vince McMahon and Mr. Perfect.
Acclaim Studios Salt Lake City would abandon the digitized sprite style for polygonal 3D models and over the top action for grapple based combat in its 1998 follow up title WWF War Zone.
