The world-famous fried chicken chain KFC is launching a dating sim game where players can try to woo Colonel Sanders.

The game, titled “I Love You Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator,” is set to release on Steam on Sept. 24 for free, according to a representative from KFC via Polygon.


In the game, the player takes the role of a “promising culinary student” who is studying alongside several quirky characters, including a chef that is a corgi, and of course, Colonel Sanders.

In terms of features, “I Love You Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator” comes with cooking battles, “battle battles,” multiple endings and the potential to romance Colonel Sanders according to developer Psyop, SoraNews24 reported.

Without going into many details, the developer also added “11 herbs and spices” into the list of features.

Although the game seems to be influenced by anime-style art, “I Love You Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator” will only be available in English.
