Ever wanted to play a dating sim with horses? No? Neither had I. In the style of the infamous hatofuru pigeons I have created a game to rival all games. It is atrocious, full of your favourite outdated tumblr memes and makes approximately 0 sense.

My first beta test failed so if you note anything wrong, please tell me!

But I love you.

A horrific take on dating sims

“You’ve wandered into a nearly empty town that’s full of nothing but cute girls…who all want you. What could go wrong? Just watch.”

“But I love you.” is a visual novel/dating sim for PC, Mac, and Linux…or at least, it starts off that way.  

Once you get in town, the occupants all flock to you, intrigued by the stranded newcomer. At first, they try to help in their own little ways, but as they grow attached, they try to convince you to stay with them. Forever. That’s when you notice things are very, very wrong in this town, from the datable characters to the setting. Once the player starts to notice a trend of the girls starting to be slightly, well, nuts, it becomes a puzzle horror game. The game still features multiple endings like a dating sim, some of them romantic, some where nothing happens, and a few where the player is…dead. You also have the option of ignoring all of the bad stuff and pretending everything is a-ok to keep scoring with the ladies.

The game features cute girls (obviously) with hundreds of possible expressions, over forty possible endings, timed puzzles and scavenger hunts, an original soundtrack, and fantastic artwork. Features we would like to include: a choice between male or female playable character, full voice acting, downloadable event art, unlockable scenes, special minigames, and multiple languages.

Me to my child someday

Child: Mom there’s this person I like at school. How do I get them to like me back?

Me: Talk to them everyday.

Child: That’s…actually not a bad idea.

Me: What’s their favorite dish?

Child: What?

Me: You heard me. What’s their favorite dish?

Child: Um–

Me: *Whips out white board and starts making graphs* Figure it out, ‘cause you’re going to cook that shit everyday, and give it to them once a day.How good are you at cooking? Not very. Hmm. I guess just boil a thousand eggs and you’ll be okay. 

Child: Mom–

Me: Also, do you know what their favorite color is? Buy clothes in that color scheme and wear only those colors.

Child: But I don’t have money for that–

Me: Then go plant some fucking turnips! Jesus Christ do I have to spell everything out for you



It’s the end of NaNoRenO 2015, and the orc dating sim I’ve been working over the last month has had a huge swell of interest - thank you so much to everyone on Twitter, Tumblr and the LemmaSoft Forums for helping! As such, here’s an updated overview of the game, which includes when you can expect a playable version, what I’m aiming to achieve with the game - which finally has an official name, Tusks: The Orc Dating Sim!

What is Tusks?

Tusks is an upcoming dating sim/visual novel game begun during NaNoRenO 2015, where participants are challenged to make a visual novel in just 31 days during the month of March. Tusks will feature the player playing as a male orc forming a group with a number of other orcs as they travel across an anachronistic, semi-mythical Scotland, and can forge relationships with them ranging from friendship, romance, to something else entirely, defined by the player.

Along the way, you’ll meet Aed, a young human man; Brocgin, an orcish scholar; Cennedig, an older orc chief; Domnol, a courier, Ferdag, an orcish warrior; Ggorom, a selkie returning to his underwater home; Malgom, the group’s second chief, with an unusual ability; Ror, the group’s third chief, who manages most of the practical problems; and Sithig, a grise aesthete.

Why orcs?

Monsters are the eternal outsiders - and I think a lot of people who don’t mesh up quite well tend to empathise and relate to the monsters sometimes more than the heroes that tend to take center stage. For example, female artists and creators are exploring monsters through things like mermaid myths and cyborg feminism - comparatively, orcishness in its ugly, crass and troubled depictions holds the same kind of appeal to me. Orcs get cast as the Other to whatever values artists want to uphold, often through real-world tropes, stereotypes and narratives rooted in racism, misogyny, homophobia and more. Instead, I’d like to cast the orcs as the protagonists, and show that most of the things we tend to think about orcs tend to be reflective of the folk writing them.

Why a dating sim?

Because orcs can be hot! Or cute, or caring, or silly, or sweet, or sympathetic, or emotionally-heart-rending. Most games that feature orcs are RPGs and hack-and-slash games where orcs are hulking brutes amassing in a horde; I don’t think they have to be limited to just that - and that it can be fun playing against type!

What makes Tusks different from other dating sims?

With Tusks, I want to show diverse characters with body types and features that aren’t typically included in games, especially as romantic interests - round, stocky and fat bodies, with stretchmarks, body hair, facial hair, scars and piercings; with visible and invisible disabilities, with varying ages, with differing beliefs, educational backgrounds and attitudes!

I also want to make Tusks a little different from your regular visual novel, with game mechanics and dialogue systems that mean the player-character isn’t necessarily always the center of the universe - community’s important too!

Who is developing Tusks?

Just this meganerd, Mitch! I’m a game design graduate, game developer and GayGamer.net staff writer, and I’m interested in personal indie games, games with gay and queer characters and themes, and - obviously - orcs!

You can find more of my stuff over at my main site, on Twitter, or at my main tumblr account.

What are some of Tusks features?

  • NPC Autonomy: In many games, NPCs and Love Interests behave like machines that you just have to press the right buttons for in the right order, and you’ll be guaranteed to get what you want. In Tusks, you can choose to play using NPC Autonomy, which means NPCs may vote on group decisions, reject your advances, make their own suggestions for routes to take, and more; two players going through the game selecting the same options may not always get the same playthrough.
  • Diverse Relationships: With Tusks, I want to make it so that you’ll not only be able to pursue relationships with characters - you’ll be able to decide what kind of relationship you engage in. You and your partners will be able to decide if your relationship is platonic, romantic, monogamous or polyamorous. And, in keeping with orcish tradition, you’ll be able to decide on the terminology of your relationship: Brocgin may call you his boyfriend, but perhaps you think of Ferdag more as a Dom…
  • Queer Themes: My hope with Tusks is that queer players might find something relatable in the orcs, who are navigating a world that considers them outsiders but who charge on nonetheless to forge their own lives and relationships in the way they see best.
  • Optional protagonist dialogue: Some players prefer their characters to never have on-screen dialogue - others feel something is lacking without being able to read their character’s lines - in Tusks, you can choose which style you prefer for your own character. 
  • Optional NSFW content: You will be able to toggle adult scenes and dialogue in Tusks through the options menu.

Who is Tusks for?

Tusks is intended for anyone over the age of 18 (NSFW content is optional and can be toggled on/off), and will be of particular interest to those who dig orcs, Scottish mythology, character-driven storylines, and Bioware-like character dialogue. Additionally, where most visual novel games featuring male pairings tend to be written by and for women who are attracted to men, Tusks is by, for and about men who are attracted to men. That’s not to say others can’t enjoy it - just that I hope men who are attracted to men will find it especially relevant.

When will Tusks be released?

There is no release date set for Tusks as of yet, but a public playtest version of the game will be available during April 2015! If you’re interested in playtesting, keep an eye out for an announcement post during April for more information.
