After the latest update of Fattening career i decided to give creating a game like that a go.
i used Virt a Mate to create the visuals and it was my first time using anything like this so some of the images might be a bit wonky. also the lighting of inside the house is not that great i only figured that out when i was on the 2nd setting and i didn’t want to redo those again maybe ill update those later.
here is a image of the 2 characters
like it says in the title this game is very short.
currently i have
- 2 girls which you can take out to eat and gain weight (both have 10 stages)
- the waitress (which is quite chunky)
despite that i created over 300 images already
the girls also change outfits every few stages
i also for this, i guess you could call it a demo, i increased the rate at which they gain weight because with there being no events yet it would have been a bit of a drag.
English is not my main language and im very bad with coming up and writing stories (even in my native language) so i appologize for any typos and weired wordings.
like i said in the beginning i got inspired by playing Fattening career which i hope everyone here has already played (if not do it ). you may noticed i used the same diner as in Bladerunes game. i tried to look for different spots but it turned out to be suprisingly hard to find free restaurant location assets.
im not 100% sure when i can continue working on this game but my plan was:
- add more girls (obviously)
- have 2 types of girls (girls you take out like the main 2 and girls you would visit while they are doing
something (like the waitress))
- add events between stages
maybe its just me but i find systems like week cycles and money a bit tideous as a player so i dont plan on adding anything like that
lastly if im going to continue working on this i need some feedback and especialy help in writing stories
im not sure how other creators are doing these kind of things but at the moment i cant pay anyone for this kind of work
anyway enough rambling
here is the game
I read your comments and i agree that the main problems of the game are repetitiveness and bad writing
while the first one will fix itself with time (i think) i cant do that much about the latter since i gave up trying to write good essays like 12 years ago in 5th grade…
Luckily Erronwolf reached out to me and offer to be a writer on the game
Together we have remade the introduction of the game and focus on the story of sarah and kalina for now
However before we continue we want to ask for some feedback as to how the “gameplay” should go in this game
We have currently 2 ideas floating around
do note that i plan on making story events whenever a character goes up a stage regardless of the below
The first is to make it so the characters have basicaly, with some minor exceptions, a story on rails forinstance kalina goes to location A then to locatio B followed by location C and goes to Stage 2 (or something like that) which might make the dialogs better overall since we know you have to have done the “dates” however at the cost of removing a lot of player choice
the 2nd option is to have the player pick a girl and then the location he wants to go with the girl kind of how it works right now but imagine it with more locations instead of just the diner (but still way better dialog compared to now) the drawback for this is that again it might be a bit repetitive since in this option the dialog for each location would probably only change every 2-3 stages. however this would give the players a lot more options and freedom for example if you want to go to the diner with kalina on stage 8 you can, but you might not be able with the other option. Another point towards this and probably the biggest imo when i add new locations in the future i can make it so even older girls can visit there with every stage which would not be possible with option 1.
vote on what you preffere here
I hope i got the pros and cons across.
so like i said we managed to rework the introduction now with actual writing wether or not that is good i’ll let you decide but i think its great!
only the intro changed the rest of the game is unchanged except some bug fixes
(i also fixed a bunch of spelling errors in the diner scenes but im sure there still a shit tone more)
you can download the update on Itch again.
Now some future stuff regardless outcome of the above:
- I have 3ish new locations planed a beach a bar and a Gym
- The beach and the bar would be similar to the diner
- The Gym would be a place you can go to and randomly encounter girls you have met that are trying to lose weight
- speaking of random encounters i plan on adding a “roam the house” feature where you randomly encounter the girls doing various things (I’ll include some spoiler images of what im talking about)
these would be just very short interaction intended to give some variance.
- obviously more girls to come but i want to get a good base down first
i think this is it for now have fun with the intro update and again feedback is wellcome
