Game designer and dragon enthusiast MB Saunders needs your help to complete his vision. His vision? To program and design a novel length dragon dating simulator in the same vein of dating sim classics like Jurassic Heart (you woo a dinosaur), Hatoful Boyfriend (you woo a pidgeon), and Creature to Koi Shiyo! – Kokonoe Kokoro – (you woo a female cricket thing in girls underwear). Saunders is reaching out for fundraising,having placed his project on Indiegogo.
The premise, as presented on the Indiegogo website, “You have been selected as one of the humans to travel to the world of dragons in a cultural exchange program. While you are only getting to know this strange, yet somewhat familiar land, it will be up to you and the friends you make to uncover a conspiracy that threatens this newly discovered world… and in the process, maybe even find love.”
Saunders’ campaign goes on to explain the features that will be offered by the yet to be named game. They include a robust script as deep and long as a novella. The story is to be written in the tone of a murder-mystery dramedy and feature 4 potential dragon suitors, 2 of each gender because dragon fuckers tend to be choosy people. But don’t get too enamored with the concept of this game just yet. Saunders is clear that this game, while emotionally intense, will not be sexually graphic in nature stating, “Depending on your choices, there will be plenty of sweet, saccharine dragon romance and some innuendo for good measure. However, there will be no explicit scenes…”
If you’re not on board for this fantasy crazy train then you might be wondering why anybody would want to make a dragon dating simulator? Well, because dragons are people too… what?
“We think dragons today are suffering from a substantial image problem. While popular media usually credits them as the amazing and powerful creatures they are, too often are they also depicted as being stereotypically evil or uncaring. Our aim is to show the world that dragons are people too. They think, speak, experience happiness and pain and can also be gentle and loving as well.” – from the Indiegogo page
The online fundraising campaigned started on November 13th and as of this article being written it still has 32 days left to reach it’s €8,000 goal, having only earned €145 thus far.
