Review: Journey to Ultimate Fightdown!

Journey to: Ultimate Fightdown! is a Spring Thing 2021 work from Havilah McGinnis.

It’s a choice-based story where the player talks with other characters while they wait for their connection to be restored. Minor puzzles are involved in negotiating and trading items among the cast, which changes how the ending unfolds.

The story blends stock fantasy roles with recognizable Hollywood stereotypes to create entirely new personalities — and then it encourages the player to ask them what they think about each other.

I enjoyed how Fightdown! explored the relationships between its different characters.
