Fleshchild's title screen
Overview[edit | edit source]
Fleshchild is an English inspired/ex-Yume Nikki Fangame by Bleet, created in RPG Maker 2003.
The game stars Vis, a "fleshchild". (After getting the female or male brain, Vis becomes either Visi or Vice respectively.) You explore and collect effects and items to further mutate Vis and please Visceriph (Also known as Fleshmother or the "big eye thing") .
As of January 2018, this game has been cancelled.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The main objective of the game is finding body parts for Vis to absorb, and collecting effects. You explore the world and can save at "Fleshflowers"(flesh that looks like a flower/plant.) After exploring the real world and finding a body part, Fleshmother will call for you to return to the nexus, and you can dream about the day. Once you leave a dream, you cannot return, so it is advised to thoroughly explore each dream before leaving.
The game focuses on more linear exploration and puzzle-solving, usually finding an item/tool to unlock a new area or get another item. The dream portions of the game play similarly to a traditional fangame, with an emphasis on exploring and effect finding. Pressing SHIFT allows you to be in Puddle form, a flattened version of Vis that can sneak under doors.
Plot[edit | edit source]
The game starts off with Vis sleeping and Fleshmother watching over them. Fleshmother tells Vis that it is time for them to grow, and Vis breaks free of their "growth polyp" to begin the process.
After gaining a brain and the ability to read human language, you find out about multiple missing people with their body parts mutilated, possibly meaning there are other fleshchildren seeking body parts.
Items/Effects (Mutations)[edit | edit source]
Items can only be collected in the real world, and Mutations can only be collected in the dream world. Also, items can only be used in the real world, while Mutations can only be used in the dream world.
