"Wrong Bet!" - an installation game for fighters and betters
Designed & developed by Brian S. Chung & gj lee.



Premieres at Come Out & Play Festival in New York City on July 12th, 2013.
Expect major updates to this page after this date.



Game Description:
"Wrong Bet!" is a simulation of underground fighting and betting.

Earn money throughout the night by placing bets on the winning fighters.

Run out of money? Jump in and start fighting! Best 2 of 3 rounds. Winner stays on. Earn extra money from win streaks.

For best results, "Wrong Bet!" should be played with as big a crowd as possible. Players drop in and out over the course of the night.



Betters cooperate because they want their fighter to win, but in the end, will themselves be competing against each other. The Betters are yelling all sorts of things at the Fighters in the center, forcing them to sort out who to listen to / who to filter out.

Make enough money and you can buy items from the in-game shop. Equip some of these items for a boost!
