Usually, I'm completely ambivalent towards dating sims, but this one has got me really interested. As strange as this game might sound to some people, there's a huge market for it, and I have little doubt that it will sell like crazy. It appeals to oddballs such as myself that have an esoteric interest in fast food mascots, let's players on Youtube who are looking for the next quirky thing to make a video about, and the many people who just unironically enjoy playing dating sims. People can poke fun at the concept all they want, but I think it's brilliant, and will ultimately make a lot of money for KFC.

Is it me, or do almost all Western VNs nowadays try to be ironically self-aware in some way by starting off with a really absurd concept?

It would seem that this is actually sort of an offshoot of a previous KFC marketing gimmick.

The ones we hear about the most are defintely using absurd plots and are parodic in nature. There's almost an entire sub-genre where players are supposed to date wacky objects/items/characters/animals/etc., harking back to Hatoful Boyfriend (where you apparently date pigeon characters).
Though if you check more underground releases on lemmasoft/fuwanovel and stuff, there'll be more standard romance stuff, and also a bit of mystery/thriller/etc.

I have some good news for everyone to hear. It was just announced that the game will be 100% free. Now, none of you have an excuse not to play it.

"It's corporate viral marketing" is a really good reason not to play something.

Yeah, I get enough ironic silly garbage just visiting the internet and I'm already too big of a fat fuck to get persuaded to eat the KFC buffet while gaming.

I'm surprised Burger King doesn't have a dating sim with that king character. They already have cheesy joke games released for xbox 360.
