About

IMPORTANT NOTE: For all information regarding DLC and the "Pay-what-you-like" remuneration model, please read the information below!

What the game is about:

Honey Rose: UFE tells the story of Red, a young university student with dreams of making it big at the masked fighting tournament.
She looks up to Big Blue, the current champion, and aims to meet her idol in the ring! However, she has a history of poor class attendance, and has repeatedly failed her latest classes.
This year, she made a deal with her parents: she’d either graduate, or they’d change towns. Unfortunately, the masked fighting tournament also takes place for the first time in the very town Red lives in... making it her one and only chance to make her dream come true!

Thankfully, that’s where you come in!

With your guidance, she needs to balance her studies with her training so she can bring home both the champion's belt, and her graduation.

The game is a life-management simulation, presented as a visual novel, with beat'em-up elements.
In short: some reading, a little fighting... and lots of planning!


Features:

  • A visual novel based around choice and reactivity! See how events unfold based on your decisions... or lack of commitment!
  • A sizeable cast of characters to encounter in dynamic events, with individual subplots to pursue!
  • Fight for your dreams in the ring, or to get back your suit from dastardly thugs in the street!
  • Plan ahead to make the most of the 6 months you have left until graduation!
  • Bring home the champion's belt if you can, but make sure to ace your tests as well! Can you really do both?


Pricing

The game uses a "pay-what-you-liked" remuneration model.

"Pay-what-you-liked" is a system designed after "pay-what-you-want", except you choose to support the game *after* having played it for yourself, and determined its personal value based on your own experience. It is designed to offer each player the most choice possible in how, when and why when considering whether to support the game or not.

Since Steam doesn't support "pay-what-you-liked" or "pay-what-you-want" remuneration systems, the DLC acts as a stand-in to offer multiple suggested tiers of support.

IMPORTANT NOTE: buying DLC stands in for supporting the game at the value of the suggested tier. It will NOT enhance or change your ingame experience, you will not be getting additional content other players can't access, as the aim for this system is for the game to be the same for everyone: ie, its most complete state right off the bat! That also means the game is NOT F2P/P2W: there is NO in-game economy that allows you to pay for additional content. The game is fully available for free from the minute you start playing it!

Honey Rose: Underdog Fighter Extraordinaire reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
In short: The experience was overall good, visually awesome, characters and universe were engaging but gameplay a bit frustrating. I recommand, keeping in mind it is a one-developer game with some flaws, but generous in content. - First, I am not a huge lifesim player, so I only have little experience with the genre. - Unique mood. I've found the game really, really beautiful, with generous animations that make the universe really engaging. Loved the character design very much! - Soundtrack was cool, maybe some weird sound emotes here and there, but that does the job putting the atmosphere. - While I still have made it through the game, I've found the gameplay a bit frustrating. It is mainly a problem of good ideas but average execution: some feedback that arent clear, some difficulty to build a strategy on the long run (sometimes hard to find the place where the character you want to talk to has gone, making you lose lots of ingame time) and the fi ghting mechanics are sadly a bit messy, making it difficult to perform the moves you want. It is really frustrating, because the setting and the mechanics ideas are great! -Writing is fine, and I've found the characters likeable. I wanted to know more about several of them, especially the fighters, so it is a good sign!

In Honey Rose: Underdog Fighter Extraordinaire We are a university with a secret passion: wrestling, and despite what our parents say or apart from how much it can harm our studies, we will continue in the ring struggling to become the Suburb champion. Train in secret in the typical low-death gym in the slums or go to college to get the race, if you do not fall asleep in class or at the last minute you decide to go out and train at the campus sports venue. In This game you have the last word regarding what our protagonist does, and therefore in how the story develops. I Don't usually play this kind of visual novels with the trite premise of "boy/student with secret life of superhero/any other activity that requires secret identity" but I have to say that Honey Rose has impressed me, the graphic section hand-drawn and The animation are very nice and the story is not bad, it is consistent and has good turns in the plot, in line with the decisions you take. Another aspect to highlight is the mix of genres in the video game, because for the most part is an interactive visual novel, but you also have to fight the fighting, and that is when it becomes a fighter; Not as complete as a game that belongs entirely to the genre (obviously) but also with well thought out and entertaining controls. Finally I would like to highlight that the game is free, but if you liked it (like me) you can pay the amount that you think fair buying some of the DLC, which are not such because they do not contribute anything, are simply to pay what you want for the game; Come on, that the developers have given, very bravely, an opportunity to the model "pay What You want" (Pay what you want) when virtually no one on Steam has done so, and therefore, deserve some congratulations, so what less to reward them for the Effort. You know, if you liked the game, do not hesitate to reward their generosity with what to pocket can afford.
