Appeeling Personality (2018)
Appeeling Personality is a game where you enter an eating contest and leave with a banana as your date. As you become more hungry, you begin to hallucinate and faces appear on the very bananas you're meant to eat. This game was made in 72 hours for TOJam 2018.
The original idea, making a banana dating sim, was not actually meant to be final. When applying to be a part of TOJam, the application requires the game idea the team will make, but we didn’t know at the time what we were going to make, so we put down banana dating sim and decided that we would come up with something else at the game jam. However, when it was time to jam, we couldn’t come up with any ideas for a fun game, so we decided to default on our original idea.
In 3 days we created an odd, but entertaining visual novel that resulted in numerous online playthroughs on YouTube, including one playthrough that had over 500k views. The game even garnered enough attention to have an article on Kotaku written about it. Appeeling Personality has also been showcased at several events, like MCX, Bit Bazaar, and the TOJam arcade.
