Colonel Sanders is a Real Snack in Finger Lickin' Dating Sim

WTF?! Get ready to get your freak on with the Colonel. Colonel Sanders is looking for a business partner, and you might be able to fit the bill if you can impress him. It even introduced an inventive, if somewhat creepy, VR training game a couple of years ago. Let's hear it for video games, everybody.

KFC is rumored to be releasing a dating simulator as early as September 24th and we know some people who might be interested in dating the Colonel. In development from Psyop, a little studio probably best known for the endearing tweens-go-away-to-camp romp Camp W, the upcoming dating sim sees you - a lovelorn culinary student, lost in that work-a-day world of fry cookery - attempt to gain the affection of the beauteous Colonel in what looks like a combination between Cooking Mama and Hatoful Boyfriend.

A KFC dating sim has been announced. But my initial thought - that this was all a fun fan-made endeavour - is not true, as KFC itself is listed on the page as the game's publisher.

"Do you have what it takes to survive culinary school?" the description asks.

A trailer for I Love You, Colonel Sanders! reveals a Japanese anime style akin to other games in this genre. A Finger Lickin' Good Dating Simulator follows you, a promising culinary student, as you try to date your classmate, Colonel Sanders.

The developers were vague on how much content the game contains, only saying that there are "multiple hours of play-through".

KFC's concept is somewhat creepy, but then again, so was the VR training simulator. 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.
