Time to make it official. As seen here, I’m making a game where you work for three Queens of Country (one of the larger countries in Pending), cooking for them and gradually making them and some others fat. The programming has caused me an immense amount of psychological damage but I’ve finished the base. All I need to do now is write some gain and NPC interactions which is more interesting. I’ll paste the story explanation from my other post here:
"The setting for this one is that, after decades of war, three nations have united to bring it to an end. They each have one queen, and the three of them work together for the benefit of the country as a whole. Two generations have passed since the wars, so the current queens are the granddaughters of the original three. They and their ancestors have ushered in an era of plenty, where people can focus on production and innovation because there is no more war.
Your character will have been caught committing some crimes and offered to either be sold off as a slave or work for the queens. Working for them you’ll be doing background tasks until you get the attention of one of the queens. You’ll become her favorite, getting access to the kitchens and the other queens, and that’s your perfect chance to build a connection with them through food and just interacting with them. You’ll be able to feed them and a few other characters as you grow your bonds with them, and depending on the choices you make you’ll either end up as a close friend of the queens or maybe make them rely on you for everything. The choice will be yours."
The only changes I have to make to this, really, are that the MC will now officially be female and you’ll be able to name her. There will be three real endings (and one other ending). I have not implemented the potential for the MC herself to gain, but I twill if the game is well received and there is demand.
To be clear, the main game loop will be about making money to buy ingredients and learn recipes, talking to the Queens and bringing them whatever food they want.
I finally finished v0.8 of the game. This version allows you to fatten all three Queens all the way up, but does not have all the background characters developed yet. I can’t code for the life of me, and this is my first Twine project, so please let me know when you invariably find some bugs and I’ll try to fix them.
One thing to bear in mind is that the current inventory system only lets you have one of any item at a time, so don’t buy or make more because you’ll waste the money/ingredients. I’ll get around to fixing that eventually.
Anyway, here’s the game and now it has no more bugs (I hope). It ain’t very long, and it ain’t very pretty, but let me know what y’all think.
Mega version, if MediaFire doesn’t work for you: 526.4 KB file on MEGA
0.9 will include the two other characters you can feed, and should come out a few weeks after that.
Then more bug fixing.
Finally, I expect to have 1.0 out in a month or two, which will include the game endings.
If the game is well received and enough people say they want me to add MC weight gain, I’ll then work on that. There’s definitely space for it, since one of the queens could be a mutual feeder and there’s a couple of characters that could be straight feeders.
