We’re excited to reveal the first playable character in Word Fighter: J.D.! The awesome portrait of J.D. you see above was created by the super-talented Raf Salazar from REGRBL. More will be revealed about J.D. in the future, but here is a rough synopsis of his background:
J.D. – “The Hero”
Growing up an orphan, J.D. had a very rough-and-tumble childhood. As a young boy, he was caught stealing a book from a shop by an old scholar. This scholar, however, decided to take the young boy under his wing, to teach him discipline and hard work through the art of word fighting. Now, J.D. lives a spartan lifestyle, and he gets by where he can. He fights only when he needs to.
We will reveal more characters and game screenshots as we get closer to GDC. Stay tuned!
