Hi all! First time poster, but frequent browser. I’ll give a brief introduction: I’ve been writing smut and kink stuff for a fair few years now, and have been programming text adventures for a few weeks.
I’ve tried some of the games here and I love so many of them, but I’ve found it hard to find ones with the exact stuff I like AND in the way I like it. Clearly, I’m one fussy human. So I’ve decided to dive in and write one myself!
I’m part way through scripting one at the moment - a Twine game - but I wanted some advice as to where to go with it. I love the idea of unwilling expansion / weight gain, and the generally realistic dread that comes with it and the lack of control characters must feel.
So I’m presenting two options here, and whichever one people are most enthusiastic about: that’ll be my angle.
A game set in an old house (if it ain’t broke, right?) where they very slowly gain weight as they move between rooms and try to find their way out (with multiple playthroughs with different types of expansion available and specific flavourtext)
Another “if it ain’t broke” concept - taking the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory idea and running wild with it. The aim being to avoid various traps and escape in one piece, with temptations and bizarre events around every corner, lots of different shorter TFs and more various endings. I’ve seen a few of these knocking about, but I’d like to go a bit darker, a lot less willing, and make it more “escape room-y” than most I’ve seen.
So, hi! I hope you like one of (or both of) those. There’s nothing stopping me from doing both, but I’d like to dive into one and get a test version of whichever is most favoured ASAP as my forray into this format.
Ideas, feedback, critiques, things I could add, questions - all welcome! I’m happy to talk about what I’ve coded so far, too.
