I am making a visual novel I’m calling Whole Hog using ren’py. It’ll be made with Daz3d elements (currently using Gen1). There will be multiple sprites per weight stage for the main character to express “emotion” as well as the main supporting characters. I have several weight stages planned for our leading lady (and maybe some for her friends). I’m working on this like a scruffy looking nerf herder (Solo).
Here is a brief summary of the plot: A new job offer and a failed relationship send you from the East Coast of the USA to the West Coast where you move into an apartment and meet a nice neighbor girl, Danielle. After sparking some interest for a few weeks, you end up on a first date. You find out she has quite an appetite for many things (mainly food). From there the typical weight gain hi-jinks ensue.
The basic structure of the game will breakdown kind of like this; each new weight stage will have a “Big date/event” and between these events there will be day to day activities, going to the park, visiting the local bar, stopping at a bakery, checking out the beach, and hopefully more! (These four are “fleshed” out, pun intended).
Enough with that, let’s meet the cast!
Danielle: Our leading lady. She is the typical girl next door with a bit of a foodie streak and a tendency to gain weight.
Next we have Kim: Danielle’s long lost college roommate, who turns out to be a baker and her waistline has suffered because of it. Will she warn Danielle about the dangers of overindulging? Or help fatten her up as a revenge for the teasing she endured?!
(Can be found at the bakery.)
Next up Rachel: Typical athletic friend, always harping on Danielle for any tiny overindulgence! Will their relationship hold up under the weight?
(Can be found at the park.)
Tracy: Sassy brassy bartender who has no time for fools. Will free beer and extra food from a handsome new cook plump her up?!
(Can be found at the bar)
And rounding out the cast (somebody stop me!) is Cindy: A hefty honey from HR. Will there be a catfight between Cindy and Danielle? Maybe an eating contest for the heart of our hero? Time will tell!
The last main character: You!
No picture here, just look in a mirror or something.
I hope to have a working demo out by the end of the month! Also let me know if this is something you’d consider supporting on patreon.
(Since I’m a new member I could only post one picture so I went with the starting weight of our leading lady.)
Thanks all and hope to share more in the weeks ahead!
