The Weight Game Dating Sim!

Hello there! I just launched a patreon for a major project and one of my patrons recommended I share it here!

So I’ve just been calling it “The Weight Gain Dating Sim” (mainly because I didn’t know there were any others like this!)

Link is here: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=15994096
(Sorry about the patreon link on my first post, it’s just where most of the information is kept, including the earliest alpha version. Just scroll down to learn more about the game. I really don’t like the way patreon expects people to just sign up upfront without seeing anything first.)

You can see some of the concept art up there, as well as the alpha 0.1 version. There isn’t much to do yet, but I am planning to add a lot over the next 12 months or so.

It’s basically going to be exactly what it sounds like, a dating sim where the girls can gain weight!

My goal isn’t to just create pandering fetish content though, I want the game to explore the ins and outs of dating a girl as she gains weight. I’m planning on focusing on how the weight gain effects her (and whether or not she enjoys it)

The game will feature:

  • Skill Mechanics, Most are fairly standard, like fitness or charm, but a few are a bit more unique, like dancing skill, or video game skill.

  • A Cooking Mechanic, where the player can create food to give to their favourite girl, inviting her over for dinner, or just giving her something nice to snack on.

  • A Money System, pretty straightforward. Earn money at work, then spend it! You can choose how and where to spend your money, on gifts, on dates, maybe on yourself?

*Dynamic characters with lives outside of the player. I want this to be a dating sim where getting the girl isn’t inevitable, and, you don’t even need to “get” her at all! You can just be friends!

*A Weight Gain Mechanic. This is probably the main reason most people will play the game :stuck_out_tongue: Each of the characters can gain weight, in a variety of different ways! Feed your girl a lot of fattening food and watch her balloon up! (She may not be too happy about it though) Or have a frank and honest discussion about your fetish with her, and maybe she’ll indulge you? You could also change her mind subtly over time.
I also have some plans for some less realistic weight gain events, like curses, magic and weird sci-fi gadgets!

*An emphasis on transitioning from acquaintances to different sorts of relationships.

*A fun cast of characters, each with their own story!

*Special events and occurrences, such as dates!

And that’s pretty much it! I’ll be sharing info here every now and then, so please let me know what you think! I’m quite happy to receive feedback and opinions! (Just keep in mind that the game is at the absolute edge of functional at the moment, so almost all of the planned features aren’t in there yet! I’ve laid a lot of the groundwork for them though!)

I’ll add some screenshots as the game gets developed more. For now, check out the concept art on patreon! (it’s free to see for everyone!)

Certainly sounds promising. Will definitely need to keep an eye on this.

Definitively interesting. A WG date sim is one of those great ideas that haven’t been developed as much. Looking forward to what comes next!

Exciting! I hope to watch this become something more full fledged; it’s maybe not the most ideal comparison, but after seeing some of the behind the scenes for both Forks as well as Growth Academy, I’m a little dubious about a one-man band approach.
That said, you certainly seem to have a plan and the skill set, to say nothing of supporters. Fingers crossed this gets you more momentum.

Thanks!

And I think it’s perfectly reasonable to be a little worried about the one man band thing, it is a lot of work for a single person to do, I have tried to plan for that as best I can, some updates will be larger than others, giving me a little bit of a break every now and then.

Once I can afford it, I will be hiring more people to expand the scope of the project though, and to speed up progress on it. I can’t really afford to hire anyone right now though.

This seems like a very interesting… Project you’ve got going here I will be watching.

Very interesting. Do you need help with this project?

As I mentioned above, I don’t really like the idea of having people work with me on a project if I’m making money and they aren’t. At the same time, I don’t have the money to hire people right now.
That said, if you still wanted to volunteer, I’d be more than happy for the help!

Whoops! I pressed the wrong reply button! (I am still new to the forum)

I hope it’s not too much to ask, but would you be able to toss some screenshots up here? Doesn’t have to be anything huge.

The earliest alpha build is available as a sort of free demo, it doesn’t offer too much in the way of content though, it’s mostly just interacting with Emily, the player’s next door neighbour.
As a result, screenshots would be a little repetitive right now, but I’ll add some more once more characters are a part of the game.
The patreon page does have concept art of the characters as well, if that’s the sort of thing you’re looking for, so you can get a feel for the art style. :slight_smile:

Is this game going to be free to the public at all, or any time soon, my broke ass can’t wait to play the game. :slight_smile:

Please stop asking every creator for free things. It’s up to the creator if they want to release their work for free or not.

As much as I’d like to release a free version, unfortunately I can’t really afford too. I’m literally just one guy, and this project pays my bills!

Hopefully I can release some kind of demo version or an earlier version for people to at least try out at some point though!

Also I don’t know if you noticed, but the game was removed from being downloaded from the easydownload site.)

Yeah, it’s a month long link unfortunately. I’m currently looking into a better hosting service.

Have you tried Mega or Drive?
