[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Will Fight for Food – Extra Hunger Edition’

Will Fight For Food

This time the spotlight will be shining on Will Fight for Food, a RPG brawler about eating food, lots of food, because… why not? Nah, it’s actually the story of a wrestler, eager to get back on his feet by any means necessary. Let’s see if we can’t help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo.

Will Fight for Food is a Role Playing Brawler where you control Jared, a wrestler whose career took a nosedive after losing in the biggest tournament of his life. Decide how and if he finds his feet in a city where the specter of the Whateville Fighting Federation looms over everything.

Whateville? Nice. Cheese points right there, although that obviously isn’t enough to get it greenlit, so what else there? Well, it’s an odd mix of point ‘n’ click, RPG and beat ’em up, but at the same time, one that works, and quite well at that! That said, if Jared – its protagonist – is going to get anywhere, there’ll have to be some asskicking and name taking in his not-so-distant future. Or you just solve the problems with bribery, charm, wit – whatever works, right? Wrong. Put on that mask, use those WFF skills to get your hands dirty, and show them who’s boss! Keep in mind however, that only the ‘standard’ version is currently available. According to the developer, the “Extra Hunger Edition of the game will be better in every way”. We won’t know if that holds true until it has escaped Greenlight limbo though, as only then will the improved version be released.

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Will Fight for Food – Extra Hunger Edition still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s been out for a while (since April, 2012), so lack of availability is certainly not the reason. If you haven’t done so already, might I recommend visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!

Will Fight for Food is available for Windows (and Linux, from Desura) from a wealth of places, all of which are listed on the official website, priced at $5 / €3.83 / £3.20 and without any DRM.
