The game, titled I Appreciate You Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Excellent Relationship Simulator (wow, that is far more of a mouthful than an Extra Crispy drumstick), is an official KFC products, according to a assertion they gave Polygon. It was made by Psyop, a sport developer that evidently specializes in accredited marketing and advertising. This isn’t the initially time KFC has produced overtures to the gaming world: see also, the KFC Gaming Twitter (“Finger Clickin’ Good”). I’m likely to guess the very same brains in the marketing division had been driving equally that and this video game.
In ILYCS!AFLGDS, you play a culinary pupil finding out together with the presumably shortly-to-be famed Colonel Sanders. The Colonel seems to be as beautiful and pleasant as ever and, in the grand tradition of relationship sims, you have the solution of wooing him — which you will simply because, you know, why pass up that variety of option? The game also has a collection of other courting sim staple figures, such as a doggy who’s apparently one of your culinary university professors.
The description on the Steam web page is extremely tongue-in-cheek, but however seems fairly incredible: “Several hours of perform-through… A magic formula ending! Shh!… Secret recipes! Double Shh!… Cooking battles… Struggle battles… 11 Herbs and Spices.”
In circumstance you essential much more enticement (which, let us be real in this article, you really don’t), the video game also capabilities positively drool-worthy illustrations of KFC‘s menu goods, with distinctive focus remaining paid out to the fried rooster.
Admittedly, when I initially read about this, my intellect right away conjured up a memory from my teenage a long time. Did anyone moreover me watch The Nanny? In that show, the titular character (played by Fran Drescher) is a person day out from marrying her paramour, when her mom Sylvia will come to fetch her for the compulsory 24 hour “bad luck” separation. When Fran protests that they have two additional minutes before the deadline, her mom states “There’s only 1 guy who can you should a woman in two minutes: Colonel Sanders.”
So the natural way, the to start with assumed when my editor slid this assignment around to my desk was, “Gee, I question if Sylvia was proper.”
I’m hoping not to analyze the point that, considerably from a basic avatar of a franchise, Colonel Harland Sanders was a actual man or woman who may possibly not be neat with his visage staying made use of this way have been he nevertheless amongst the dwelling. Although I suppose I really don’t come to feel as weird about it as I would for, say, a activity in which you date Wendy’s namesake, who is pretty significantly alive.
And hey, this isn’t the worst game-centered-all around-a-rapidly-food items-mascot to at any time exist… I suggest, Sneak King nevertheless exists.
According to the Steam site, the activity will be out there for absolutely free on September 24.
