Welcome everyone! I am Jhalem. I mostly like RPGMaker and interactive fiction. I dislike pornographic games. I am very unlikely to want to do fetish-based roleplay (I do not see why it would be fun) but I would love to have a friend where we roleplay out our friendship.
Why am I here? I just want to be around people who like fatness and weight gain. I also feel like this might be a safe community - I have found just about every website I used to like becoming filled with dangerous people. I would love to play a good game or story featuring fat characters and weight gain combined with romance, but I would prefer if it was not the focus of the game or story.
Also, I am making my own RPGMaker game. I have no idea if it should be posted on this website, but I am planning to and have made a few BBW/BHM/SSBBW/SSBHM-sized characters for the game. I am wondering whether to add weight gain to the main characters (who are not fat except maybe one who I forgot about designing until today) because the game is supposed to be a very serious commercial game, but there will be transformation elements if the player chooses the evil path. I might make transformation elements for the good path and neutral paths, too, but weight gain might just be a side effect of stat-increasing items.
With my game, I probably do not want any help and this is why I am being rather secretive. It is meant to be a very pure game and I am the only person I trust with having pure thoughts. However, if you want a character (basically all of them are supposed to be humans) designed after you, I might be able to fit them into the game. Model photos for character designs might be appreciated, but I know that men can’t take effective selfies.
If you want me to make something for you, that would probably help me get more focused on my own work and I would appreciate that. Music is not something that I can really make yet, but I am working on it. Pixel art is something that I can do, but it takes a lot of time, which means that it better be something worthwhile or small in pixel amount until I am skilled enough to draw quickly. If you want an idea to make your game better that is not catering solely to fetishes, I probably would be good for guiding game and storyline balance.
Welcome to the forums! If your game will have weight game then it will be welcome here i think
Even if it would not be necessary for my game to have weight gain elements, I have finally decided that I want to have the game include weight gain throughout. The game is supposed to run on a time-based system which means that it can be easy to have a weight gain progression used to mix the game up in a fun way. However, I am unsure if I should do it if it ends up taking the majority of my development time because the way that I am considering is very complex.
Basically, most healing items in my game are already food. I think that I should have a [health recovery - (damage output + damage taken)] algorithm that would determine how much weight is gained in a day. However, there would definitely be some methods of healing that should not be counted as weight gain. I really hope this is all possible in RPGMaker 2003 with some plugins because I plan on not using anything else and if it does not work, I will wait until my next game (which would be C++ based) to use the design. On my list of priorities, getting the game out with all of the custom art and thought-out text is significantly above having weight gain features.
Nice to meet you, and I don’t mean to be rude, but you said you could make things for people, like pixel art?
It’s good to see someone decided to going the cutesy romance route. So far we don’t have much of that here. Even my own game is basically all fetish-fuel.
Unfortunately, it is not really a romance game, I was just mentioning how it was my preference to play games like that. The game is more like a gorilla warfare situation and the weight gain would just be something to add to the way the game plays. There is some romance, which means that I probably should focus on creating some cute fat-based romance scenes when/if the weight gain features make it into the game. (I already have a scene in the game where the two main characters who are a lesbian couple are implied to be acting sexually.)
The protagonist side of the cast is essentially all-female and the antagonists are essentially all-male, just to give you a bit of an idea as to what type of games I lean towards. Also, the genre could essentially be considered urban fantasy/science fiction/slipstream and it takes place in modern times. Lastly, the main, main character is a struggling anti-hero (heavy on the anti).
Because of the main character’s goals, powers and/or knowledge, the weight gain will be able to happen without slowing down their journey in any way.
Playing a game where weight gain is a very small part might not seem worthwhile, but I will try to deliver on the fanservice as much as I comfortably can. Since I am part of this community, I would probably make a patch or new version of the game focusing on fanservice after releasing the game, if people were interested. Be warned that I am not a writer who does indirect descriptions well. The reason I work with RPGMaker is because it makes those descriptions less necessary. I have an extremely high amount of objects described in the game, but describing a scene in words is going to usually be pretty shallow. I focus more on something like battle sprites and attacks rather than making a scene sexy through description.
