Honey Rose: Underdog Fighter Extraordinaire is a life management simulation, presented as a visual novel with beat’em up segments.
The game is for PC, developed using Construct 2.
Enter a world of masked fighting, tenacious teachers, overbearing parents and steadfast friends in this hand drawn story… Honey Rose’s!
A game by Pehesse, with awesome music by Morusque.
This looks like a really fun game already. I love the idea of hybridizing visual novels with other types of gameplay. It’s a safe bet you’ll get my money. Please make this game available outside Steam though, GOG and direct buy would be great.
Thanks a lot! As far as the game’s availability, I understand completely and it’s my current plan. I’d love to be on Steam, but that’s completely in the air at this point, and that would only be as an alternative to direct DRM free purchases – so this is the most likely option for now 😀
What an awesome project. I’m a fan of both comic books/novels & hybrid games. I love the concept from a design stand-point alone. The visuals I’ve seen so far are pretty amazing and it looks to be the kind of games I hope to see more of out there in the game-o-shpere. 🙂
Please keep up the great work, I’ll be following on twitter and where possible I’ll help spread the word. I think people should design more creative games like this.
Thanks a lot!!
And you’re right, Twitter/Tumblr are the best place to follow the updates right now. This site will become more active as I near the finish line, but for now, it’s more of an information and redirection nexus!
I stumbled across this game on LSF and continued stalking you on here!
So far I think it looks amazing! Even though you use a comic style for a VN hybrid instead of the typical manga/anime style, I really love the visuals so far! They are full of details and reflect the many hours you must have spent on them!
I also very much like the brawler elements! For sure it isn’t common to combine that with a VN, but together with the stats raising, I am already very excited to try it out!
I wish you the best luck on this project and will be keeping an eye on it!
Wow, many thanks!
You’re right, comic aesthetics aren’t used a whole lot in VN space, which is a shame, so I’m doing my best to fill that niche 😀
I’m currently working on the last big missing mechanic from the prototype, and when it’s ready, I’m strongly considering releasing a demo for further testing and player feedback, so you might get a chance to try it for yourself sometime early next year!
Otherwise, well, watch this space for the release information, it’ll happen… eventually 😀
Saw your project on the c2 forums. Would be cool to link up to just discuss games. I’m Andrew of Notion Games. hit me up on twitter @notiongamesllc or @datboidrew
Thanks! Followed you on twitter, so we can talk there 🙂

I’m going to play your game for the first time, but I already know that’s gonna be awesome and you need to pursue this! I’m a big fan of comics (not so much of heroes comics but still) and this really reminds me of a lot of good comics and the artwork stands for itself, it’s amazing!
Oh, thank you very much 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy what you play! Good luck, and I wish you to have a great time alongside Honey 😀
Just wanted to stop and say that I started playing your game and all I can say is it’s pretty amazing, it’s fun and unique and the story is fun to play and I wish you the best of luck.
Thanks a lot! Very glad you like it, and even more that you stopped by to tell me so 😀 So, thanks!!
This game is fantastic! It’s sets a high bar for the VN field. The hand-drawn characters complete with animations- I’ve never seen that before, it was such a great addition to the game. Honey Rose is a really likeable narrator, and every character was fun and likeable as well. I hope you are doing well and know that your game is still entertaining and inspiring others!
Many thanks for your kind words, and for liking the game :-))
