The first game from developer Pyrodactyl was Unrest, an adventure RPG set in ancient India that touched upon poverty, disease, and social and political change. So you’ll understand when I say that their latest game, Will Fight For Food: Super Actual Sellout: Game of the Hour, an RPG and brawler that stars a down on his luck wrestler (Jared Casey Dent) seeking revenge on the cartoon villains that betrayed him, is massively different. Even that title is a parody in and of itself.
So being such a huge tonal shift from their first title, Will Fight for Food is a huge risk. Plus, in addition to being marketed as a tongue-in-cheek fighting game, Pyrodactyl has also been keen to point out the fact that their game isn’t just punching, kicking and wish-upon-a-prayering as its dialogue system is quite rich too. But does the game deliver on all fronts or is it as hapless as Jared’s future prospects? Read our Will Fight for Food review to find out.
