Consume Me looks to put you in the shoes of a dieter, dealing with counting calories, the pressures to succeed, and your newfound, strange, hostile relationship with food.
In Consume Me, you will explore the personally-hostile, difficult world of dieting and eating disorder. Through a series of minigames and narrative events, you’ll help the character count calories, balance meals, or force down the foods they’re ‘supposed’ to be eating to meet their goals.
Although cute and humorous in places (and quite dark), the game delves into the constant battle that dieting can be, and the unhealthy effects this struggle can have. As players fight to get the right food in their bodies when it just doesn’t feel fair, or purposely harm themselves by overexercising or pushing themselves too hard to change their body shape, they’ll experience some of that pain that dieters go through.
Consume Me aims to offer a sobering look at the pain negative body image can cause, and the difficult battle dieters must fight against themselves.
Consume Me is currently in development, but you can follow its creation on Itch.io.
