I just cobbled this visual novel project together over the course of a few days while learning Renpy. I have wanted to make a visual novel for a long, long while quite honestly, and after playing a few from friends… I decided to bite the bullet and start learning how to make one myself. I am still learning Renpy, but the game so far is completely free of any bugs, and should hopefully at least give you the gist of what I am going for.
To give you the full scope of what I am aiming for this game to be, here is a list of features that I want to implement in the game as I keep working at it:
- Actual Art Assets and not just ref sheet cutouts of my OC’s
- Comprehensive weight gain system with calories, stomach capacity, weight gain powders and spells, etc.
- Branching story with multiple endings
- SFW and (optionally) NSFW intimate/sex scenes with both male and female characters
- Novel-length story
- A full monetary system with bills, a paycheck, and upgrades
- Knowledge system based off your chosen degree.
So, as you can see… I’m a bit ambitious here. However, this demo was written in 3 days while fighting off a cold on an engine I’ve never seen or used before. So… I have faith that I will be able to at least get some of that stuff implemented with time! I want to get it all in there too, and get it in there well; there will be no half-assing on this project. If something doesn’t work or isn’t coming out how I want it too, it won’t be added to the game… Period. So don’t expect anything half-baked.
This initial demo will be free, and will remain free for good. There will be a free build, but to support the game you can go to http://patreon.com/NewSaggingTon and get access to the most current build as well as behind the scenes sketches and concept artwork. There is also a Discord at http://discord.gg/PdvXUNN where you can talk to me and the artist and composer about the game. I am well aware that not everyone can afford to pay for a fetish game, so I want to make sure that everyone can at least experience this project as it grows and moves forward. This is a passion project for me at the moment too, so I will update as often as I can, but I do have a full-time life.
9-8-20: This is the final demo of the game, though there will be updates for art and music as assets get made! It has a full first day, with all the intros to the major characters I want to reveal for now as well as a setup for what is to come. There are now 5 degrees to pick from, each with their own planned perks and bonuses in the full game (Cooking degree makes it easier to make fattening foods, for example). The few scenes that I got feedback on about not being up to snuff I shored up and did some rewriting, there is some more new music in the game, and just in general things are more polished. I am also testing the relationship system out too, which is another thing I want to implement to unlock new routes of fattening later on in the game. Sorry for the delay in getting this out, my partner and I moved house a few weeks ago and getting everything packed, unpacked, and all of that was… Yeah, that was a stressful few weeks. I’m back at the keyboard though and raring to go, so more updates shall be happening soon!
Anyways! Here is a link, and let me know what you think! I also added in a Mac version as well, as that was something that was heavily requested!
-I am aware of the differing art styles and lack of clothing on the characters, the art is all from ref sheets of characters that I own. I have found an artist, but it will take time for them to get through all the characters and art assets of the game.
