Great game dear dev :P
Honey Rose - Underdog Fighter Extraordinaire
A downloadable game
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!
- 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?
- The setup available on this page will always be patched to the latest version available. If you want to download updates separately, please head here! Latest patch available: 22.214.171.124, dated November 13th 5PM CEST

Oh, many thanks, dear player :-D
XD You blocked me on steam for some reason.
Sorry, I didn’t know who that was and I assumed it was spam/a scam. I restrict access to my steam friendlist to irl known people only. What can I help you with?
Don't worry, anyway i don't need any help, i love your games, i'm just a big fan of yours and i just tried to know you better, that's all :P
Ha, I understand better now, many thanks :-) Well, sorry, I'm very private and cautious/reserved. I very much appreciate your enthusiasm though, and I hope you'll look forward to what I do next! If you aren't already, the best way to follow my updates is on twitter https://twitter.com/lavantdapres. I'm currently freelancing on a number of projects, but you might also be interested to know (if you don't already) that I've started working on a remake for this game: https://twitter.com/lavantdapres/status/1548662921856782338 It's just starting, so don't expect it anytime soon (and there's always the possibility it fails to take off), but it's "officially" started now, and I'm hoping to share more about it when there's really cool stuff to show (and hear) !
Has anyone had success running this on a Mac? Love this concept and everything about this game so much, I really want to be able to play it
Hey there! Thanks a lot for the interest :-) For Mac, I'd recommend direct browser play, as all other versions are Node Webkit exports and aren't Mac compatible AFAIK. All the info for browser play is here: http://pehesse.fr/honey/en/get-the-game/ or if you'd rather get to it now the game itself is http://pehesse.fr/honey/web !
