About This Game

Jared Casey Dent was a wrestler in a down-and-out bloodstained middle American town. He lost his own tournament in disgrace and vanished into the night. Now he's back, and you must set his life straight using your own home blend of:
  • Brutal violence
  • Jared’s wavering, hamfisted brand of subtle persuasion
  • Side questing for loose change
  • Just doing stuff for the hell of it


Ridiculously Complicated Conversation System
The give-and-takes of social engineering do not come easily to Jared. You’ll have to carefully select body language, tone, and opinion if you want to get results. Alternately, pick bizarre options and watch NPCs get really confused.

Fast-Paced Brawling (aka, the easy way)
While the subtleties of speech and debate may be lost on Jared, beating people up comes pretty naturally. And if you go that route, you won't believe the people you'll have to put in the ground - the mob, nerds in power armor, the police, a TV superhero, and more!

A Narrative of Personal Redemption OR Punch Everyone
Wage war for the soul of Jared Dent, wanderer and troubled fellow, and choose his destiny over the course of one wild nonlinear night – or ignore all of that stuff and beat up approximately an entire town.

Inventory management
Acquire stuff. Use the stuff to make yourself hurt things or get less hurt by things.

The Most Accurate Portrayal of Nerds Ever
Move over, Big Bang Theory – we’ve got the most hilarious, tear-jerking, hamfistedly pandering depiction of Nerds™ in any art form EVER. Stereotypes you've grown used to, as fresh and accurate as they were in 1986!

Zero Typing-Based Victorian Romance Scenarios
Use your furious fingers and knowledge of period social mores to woo seven beautiful English debutantes in a game that isn’t this one. But – you can make that game within this game with mod support!

Ohmygoshohmygosh, I was super excited to play this game! The game hasn't let me down yet. The Steam videos made this game look entertaining, and I wasn't wrong - I found myself laughing while playing because it's my kind of humor. When I purchased this game, I wasn't expecting a whole lot, because it was only $5, but I am quite pleased.

The music is upbeat, and while I'm fighting I'm reminded of the 1970s Batman tv show. The graphics are basic but fun.
I haven't really paid much attention to the story line, if there is one, because I was having fun running around and beating up people.
The controls are easy to learn, but I struggled with lining myself up with the npc's in order to talk/beat them up. Other than that, I just smashed buttons - fun and easy!

For my $5, I would give this game a 7/10 from what I've seen so far.
Video footage will be posted on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/user/HiddenLevelStart

Update: I beat the game in a little over an hour. There's roughly 1 quest in each zone, and 6 zones total. Who you choose to beat up or help determines what rewards you get (which aren't important), what you write in your journal (a funny gimmick) and what happens to the npc's, but ultimately won't affect you. Short storyline, yet entertaining.

Is 84 minutes with a snack break thrown in worth $5?

WFfF reminds me of the flash games I used to play back in the early 2000's. As I remember them, they had a charming, if not minimalist art style, interesting or zany premises and usually did one or two things pretty well for what they were. I think that's a fair generalization of this game.

The game starts off as the player character, who is a professional wrestler, shows up drunk to work and is about to take a fall, giving up the championship belt to another wrestler. After a few clicks through the dialogue and it's now the future. The player character is homeless and goes around a city map bumping into his old friends/rivals from the glory days of wrestling in the WFF. Some are just as down on luck as the player character, others have become high ranking officials in the police department of even government. The player will then decide to talk or fight to solve these former wrestlers' problems.

Humor is a hard thing to capture in a game because humor is not universal. Something funny to someone can be an annoyance to the next. The humor in WFfF is zany and irreverent so I found myself smirking a couple times while playing the game. It's hit or miss but doesn't seem like it's trying too hard to be funny which is a good thing.

The humor serves the dialogue well and the highlight of the game is probably the dialogue system. In certain situations the player will have to convince characters to do things they may not want to do, a screen pops up displaying certain traits about the person the character is talking to and it's up to the player to decide how to tackle the situation. Adopting an agressive style, disagree with the character and do so in a snarky way and the person that needs the convincing may disapprove while assuming a different stance, agreeing with the person and being a little more to the point may be the required combination. It's definitely an interesting and organic way to handle dialogue and when it works, things go pretty smooth, when it doesn't work, I was forced to throw up my dukes and handle things through combat.

Combat is a little too simplistic for my liking, even in a game such as this. There are punches, kicks, and a shoulder charge with rapid pressing of these buttons stringing the attacks into a combo which changes the animation a little bit. My issues are the AI isn't that bright and the combat moves don't feel particularly wrestling-esque. AI will often close distance and get within melee range but since this game plays like an old beat 'em up, the characters can sometimes overlap on the x axis and instead of the computer trying to reposition itself, it will swing blindy over and over until the player moves the character around.

There's equipment in the game that changes stats such as damage and speed and the different stats do have a visible effect on how fast the character moves or the damage that they do but I only wish that there was a change to the appearance of the character too. I think it would be a little toucht hat goes a long way to show that the developer cared about the little things.

There's about 8 locations, a quest or two per map and one of those maps are unlocked once everything else has been solved. The graphics aren't that good with a lot of assets being reused and for some reason there are minigames of sorts that don't amount to anything and aren't very fun.

Oh I asked a question in the beginning and for me the answer is no. Those flash games were little time wasters that were occasionally fun but they were free and some of them were really well done with a bunch of little nuances throw in. Will Fight for Food has some good ideas but it doesn't seem much effort is put into the game to make those ideas shine.

Will Fight for Food: Super Actual Sellout: Game of the Hour is a game that speaks for itself.
That old idiom "What you see, is what you get." Stands true here. Will Fight for Food has a variety of interesting ideas that are all treated with a strange humor. One that you will either enjoy or find not so funny. If you find yourself on the latter. Then you will find many issues with the game. From the very simplistic combat, odd graphics and short gameplay. However if you can see the charm in the dialogue and perhaps embrace the over all strange dynamics and storyline. Will Fight for Food may just surprise you. Personally I found the idea of an open world, side scrolling, beat 'em up style game very intriguing. However you can play the entire game without punching anything at all. The story has many possible paths and outcomes. Do you help your friends or punch them in the face? It's all up to you. To sum, if your looking for a very action oriented game. This isn't it. On the other hand if your looking for a quirky, whimsical game that doesn't take itself too seriously. You might enjoy Will Fight for Food.

I did a Let's Play/First impressions on this game! Come check it out if ya like!
Big thanks to the developer for this great game!
Hope you enjoy.

Well this is a excellent gem of a game hidden under a strange game name which probably makes no sense.

This is not much of a rpg, its kinda semi rpg with more of arcade beat em up style with a few stats granted by items , Just to make any sense it's one of those Wrestling stories which means it will have everything thrown in including the kitchen sink for some cheap pops.(watch wwe etc).

Well without spoiling much its certainly simple playable game for multiple branching stories, the controls are very simple and you are not forced into anything a good stroll through game.

- Great humor , multiple choices , sub quests.
- Simple interface nothing complex easy to jump in.
- Decent music suits the game.
- Replayability.

- Strange title not sure it matches with what the game is about. Would have made more sense like : The rise and fall of WFF , or something like that mentioning it's a wrestling story so that people looking for those types jump in asap.
- Mods is empty ? i assume a workshop or something will be setup for different user made story ?

Overall i was surprised at what the game offered , nice achievement runs as well very well planned out.

Easily worth a purchase if you are looking to get during a sale.

WFfF is definitely a budget game, it feels like a flash game, and the combat and dialogue mechanics are shallow but ultimately it has enough charm to be worth playing. It helps that they are different ways to approach things and different endings as well. If the devs had more to work with this could have been real good, but as it is its a solid game worth the price.

Pretty much the best game £3.97/£4.79 can buy. Or whatever that is in your applicable currency. But it isn't actually.

Well, okay, it's a fun game I guess but there's better? But it's still a fun game. Y'know, like, provides entertainment and stuff. It's fun. To play. Play the game. Buy the game and play the game.

Punch everyone into a coma because moral boundaries are what wimps use to justify their dislike of being punched into a coma. Then replay the game since it's so short and try to go the pacifist route only to end up realising you still need to punch a fair few people anyway. The game is all about punching if I'm honest. Occasionally kicking. Punching is easier though. Shoulder bashing is also fun. There's pretty much no food involved. Or selling out, wrestling is fake afterall.

Did I convince you to buy the game yet? No? Time to bring out the big guns.

Will Fight For Food: Super Actual Sellout: Game of the Year: Colon is a game. Buy the game and play it. Please?

It's short, it's funny, it has combat mechanics to rival the mightiest flash Newgrounds has to offer and I don't regret purchasing it one bit. I just wish it was longer.

It also has really good music.

Graphics: Characters have wriggly cartoon lines and bold outlines. Reminiscent of a flip-book animation.

Music: Perfect. Sounds exactly like an arcade from the late 80s.

Dialogue: Snappy? Minimalist? Abrupt? I'm not sure how to describe this stuff. Certainly not ordinary, though.

Experience: Bizzare. Short. Kinda feels like you stuffed a roller coaster ride in your ear and whirled your brain around for a while.

Mechanics: Fighting is rudimentary, as in it consists of hitting the fight buttons. Another check in the arcade nostalgia checklist. Talking is convoluted because "social engineering [does not] come easily to Jared." (I seem to recall a previous version of this game where talking is convoluted because the game had a "revolutionary conversation system...")

Bottom Line: I...I like it? If the trailer makes you laugh, you will like the game. Look at that creepy half-head next to your health meter! I can see it being a very divisive experience, though.

Prooobably the best-written game I've played. Has a strong Archer feel to it.

The conversation mechanism is really interesting, but I'm not ashamed to admit that I beat up everyone in the game.

Honestly, it controls like a paraplegic, there's no gamepad support, it's got the production values of a 2004 Newgrounds flash game, the dialogue has weird sentence structures as well as grammatical errors and there was at least one bug I've found that halted progress with a side-quest....

But, I still loved it. The dialogue's hilarious and unique. The game just grows on you after ~20 minutes.

Full Disclosure : I got a key from the developer to review the game.

TL;DR : Looks fun and has a nice idea with the conversation minigame.

Good humour in places, with references I didn't get not detracting from the jokes I did get.
Conversation minigame is a nice mechanic.

Music can get wearing after a while.

It's a funny little game with great comedy, I love the visuals, as I am a fan of the simplistic cartoonish stle this game uses. Overall the way it plays is lovely, it's short, it's stupid (In a good way) And it's silly, I love i.

7.5/10 Would recommend.

TIL Wounded Viking warriors were given strong onion soup. After a few minutes someone would smell the wounds and if onions could be detected it meant that there were serious abdominal injuries and that death was inevitable.

This is a fairly clunky game with a moderately humorous interactive storyline, and some rudimentary combat stuff.

The graphics are pretty bad, low effort.

Most of the gameplay is so simple it could have been done in flash, in a web browser - the developers might have gotten more money from ad impressions if they went down that path.

There's not much that really qualifies this game as a PC game. It might do well on consoles where they like that kind of thing and have lower standards.

Comedy games are a funny thing. Sometimes more funny strange than funny haha. Will Fight for Food isn't a bad game, I just have mixed feelings about it. You play a washed up wrestler named Jared who is trying to get his life together by visiting all his former adversaries after a match gone wrong. The story is definitely unique. This is a light simple brawler / RPG adventure. Emphasis on the 'simple'. I think most or matter of fact the ONLY slightly complex part of this game is the conversation aspect.

You can fight just about anyone you see. Your fighting style is pretty straight forward punch, kick, rush. Sometimes Jared does a jump kick in between but there isn't much variation to it and every once and a while you'll pick up a random trinket that you can equip. Although with the exception of speed I don't feel like there's any noticeable difference in stats between items. Now the opponents you fight are all have the same move set and will attack you once you throw the first punch. Regular civilians will run away from you, or try. They pretty much just move a little ways away from you and whatever brawl you started. The violent approach is the most straightforward and the quickest way to beat the game. It honestly took me about 10 minutes to finish it.

The non-violent route is a bit more complex. Each major character you'll meet will have a problem and for karma points or perhaps nothing better to do you'll have to find a way to solve it. It's not 100% peaceful as a few solutions require you to fix the problem with your fist. But the parts I enjoyed most were where you would try to convince a character to do something by choosing the appropriate body language approach for their personality. It gave a hint of depth to the one dimensional characters / situations. The writing is pretty good. There's some tongue in cheek jokes and the script has it's moments. Total time to go through the non-violent approach is about 1 hour. Slightly longer if you seek out all 3 endings. For the price though I'd say pick it up on sale based on the content and playtime. It's not bad at what it does but it certainly could have done better.
