A KFC dating sim has been announced. No, “KFC” is not some weird weeabo acronym — I’m literally talking about the fast-food chicken franchise. Titled I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator, players will be able to date the iconic mascot in an anime-styled game.
I Love You, Colonel Sanders! Seems Spicy
Promising 9 lovable characters and 11 herbs and spices, I Love You, Colonel Sanders! puts you in the shoes of a culinary school student. Colonel Sanders is looking for a business partner, and you might be able to fit the bill if you can impress him. Really impress him, and you’ll become something so much more wonderful.
The game says that it will have multiple hours of playtime, although it declines to give a specific number. There will also be “cooking battles” and “battle battles”; while the first bit seems to make sense considering the sentence, the second kind of battle seems awfully redundant.
Is This a Genuine KFC Dating Sim?
I Love You, Colonel Sanders! is developed by Psyop and published by KFC, at least according to Steam. I’m genuinely unsure if this is an elaborate hoax or a real game; none of KFC’s social media channels seem to mention anything about it at the time of writing.
Although a KFC dating sim may seem like a strange thing, fast-food marketing (and really, marketing in general) has been getting increasingly weird. A game like this is sure to generate buzz all on its own, nevermind the profits that can potentially be made from the game itself.
I’ve reached out to KFC and Psyop to find out more about this game, including whether or not this is a real thing. No price or firm release date has been announced; for now, you can add I Love You, Colonel Sanders! to your wishlist on Steam.
