Romancing Flesh is a dark and twisted body horror kinetic visual novel that follows the story of two scientists who carry out illegal experimentation as they attempt to splice animals with plants.
Created for the Spooktober Visual Novel Jam, Romancing Flesh puts you in the role of a prisoner who’s locked up in a prison for “deviants”. The warden of the prison is a real piece of work, but he’s offered you a deal. He wants you to look over the case files of your cell-mate and see if there’s anything that they can nail him for before his release at midnight tonight. Do that and you’ll be able to walk free.
The case files of your cell-mate include audio recordings, pictures, letters and videos, and they all weave a dark tale of how a normal college graduate ended up locked up in a prison for deviants. A key part of the story is his relationship with Dr Petrov, a renowned scientist who partnered up with your cell-mate to try and create animal/plant hybrids. Sure, trees that produce meat would revolutionise meat production, but the pair cross many lines as their unethical experimentation lead them to create grotesque sentient abominations.
It’s a great little horror story with a nice cast of diabolical characters, a unique art style and a delightfully dark and twisted narrative. It turns out there are far worse things than slaughtering animals for meat!
