MAN vs VERIFIED is a top-down beat-em-up with a looping wave-based progression system. Enemies and powerups are introduced as the player reaches new Waves. After Wave 10, the player can enter into "NG+", where the enemies are more difficult, but allow for quicker buildup of Followers. The goal of the game is to reach 1,000,000 Followers in order to become verified.

Each wave has a set number of enemies to spawn, with the exception of Wave 10, which spawns enemies until Verified is defeated. Once all enemies in a wave are killed, the player upgrades his power, progressing to the next wave. When the player completes Wave 10, he is given a NG+ powerup, which loops the game back to Wave 1, but with more difficult enemies.
The player gains Follows for any damage done to enemies, whether through punches, RTs, or powerups. The player becomes verified once he reaches 1,000,000 followers.
For now, the game is only playable by MAN on his Twitch channel, as it chronicles his real-life struggle to become verified on Twitter. When he becomes verified, the game will be released to the general public.
