This is an idea I got from watching one of another game maker’s coding streams and a commenter mentioned a Victoria’s Secret selling chocolates, which I’m going to use as an excuse to finally learn Ren’py. I have no skill or proper equipment when it comes to the visual arts, but I can probably commission some static images depending on how far I’m able to go with this. Disclaimer: I’m thinking of letting the player do some really dark stuff in this game, with gory deaths and all.
The Euphoria Candy Factory Tour
Story: After receiving a special offer inside a box of luxurious chocolates, you have been chosen to participate in a rare factory tour of the Euphoria Candy and Chocolate Company at their central location in Cardiff, Wales, led by it’s eccentric CEO Ivanka Williams. The company itself is mostly known for their risque advertisements targeting women, focusing on the product’s use as a potent aphrodisiac. At the end of the factory tour, one of the six participants will be chosen based on their behavior during the tour to receive the grand prize: A lifetime supply of all Euphoria products. Throughout the tour, you as the main character can attempt to tip the odds in your favor by befriending and/or sabotaging the other contestants consisting of single, lonely young women (ie the sort of people who would spend most of their time eating Euphoria chocolates).
Gameplay: Basically an erotic Dating Sim/Visual Novel using the Ren’Py engine with elements of weight gain, various forms of inflation, transformation and plausibly deniable murder. Your choices throughout the tour can result in the other participants in either becoming deformed and incapacitated, falling in love with you, falling in love with you after becoming deformed or dying gruesomely. And because of the copious amounts of unhealthy food available, all the participants can be encouraged to gain weight throughout the tour.
