Weigtht gain fighting game

Here is my idea: a 2D fighting game in which some cute fat girls (and maybe some boys to appeal to a broader audience, idk) fight each other to make the opponent fatter.

I’ve been thinking about how could I turn weight gain into a fun mechanic for a fighting game so I came up with this: each fight lasts a maximum of 3 rounds. When you win a round, your rival gets fatter. Once your opponent is bigger they won’t move as fast as before, but their defense and attack power will increase significantly. That will give them a nice advantage that may help them to make a comeback. Making the weight gain part this way instead of doing it in a more gradual way will make the characters easier to animate.

I want to make this game in the future, but for now I’m just designing the characters and writing the story. Anyway, before getting to really work on this project I’d like to know your thoughts. What do you think about the concept? What kind of characters would you want to see in this game? Do you know if there’s already a similar game out there?

Well, KazeCat is working on something similar with the MUGEN engine, but it’s mostly about furries.

and less about weight gain and more about them already being fat. too much farting as well

Also most of his characters are unappealing.

Just putting this out there @anthill33 and @onipuck

It’s totally okay to be uninterested in certain aspects of a project because they don’t appeal to specifically your interests, but don’t be fooled into thinking that others share your dislike.

Also please take care to make sure you don’t cross into rudeness or incivility . https://forum.weightgaming.com/faq#be-civil

What kind of setting are you going for? Is it mostly martial artists or is it something more fantasy with magic attacks weaved into the kicking and punching?

That’s a really good question. I think most of the characters will use magical kicks, punches and projectiles like the Hadouken from Street Fighter, but I also want to make some characters that use martial arts, boxing and wrestling techniques… and even characters with crazy, unrealistic fighting styles like a cute, sleepy girl who uses a heavy pillow as a weapon, for example. So a little bit of everything, really.

Here’s some ideas:

A pro wrestler similar to Zangief from Street Fighter
A pop diva who can stun foes via singing
A princess-type character who uses magical powers
A ninja girl that can use a Sangure=Passare-like technique almost identical to Kitana’s finisher from Mortal Kombat II
And more…

Thanks, I love these ideas! Certainly a big pro wrestler character with powerful grabs/throws and a quick ninja with crazy techniques like that sounds very interesting. I actually thought of including a princess-type character like that before, and the diva character sounds really fun to make. I’ll take these ideas into consideration.

You still thinking about this project?

Yes. It’s still in pre-production and I haven’t made much progress, but in a few days I will have much more free time and I’ll be able to work on this project properly.
