I loved the demo. The game is cute, funny, and has great d!ck names/substittutes. What else could a perverted ace ask for?
Dr. Frank's Build-A-Boyfriend (WIP)
A downloadable game
Build Your Own Customizable Boyfriend!
After being kicked out of both his PhD program (plant science) as well as medical school (Pathology), Dr. Frank had pretty much resolved himself to a life of solitude and science. That is, until a handsome stranger knocked on his door and swept him off his feet. Dominik seemed to be the perfect boyfriend- attentive, caring, and interested in Dr. Frank's work.
Maybe too interested.
Three months into the rainbow-colored relationship, Dominik runs off with Dr. Frank's lifelong research on resurrection to present at the annual prestigious Hindenberg University Conference, under his own name.
Livid, Dr. Frank decides the only course of action: Revenge.
Not only is Dr. Frank going to one-up Dominik's presentation by presenting the world's first artificial life form, but Dr. Frank is going to make said life form the world's hottest, most beautiful boyfriend.
Dr. Frank's Build-A-Boyfriend is a comedy BL visual-novel mixed with point-and-click adventure elements. The project began as a Yaoijam 2016 entry and is projected to be finished development
near the end of September end of December! [Update: 10/15/16]

i havent played it yet but i hope its ok!
Woo! I just finished the demo!
I clicked extras first, and I already knew I was in for a game I would enjoy a lot!
THE INTRO IS SOOO NICE, OOH I LOVE IT. The writing is a lot of fun and WOW the soundtrack is so enjoyable-- I loved every song so far. Each time a new song came on, I got hype!!!
The busts and backgrounds all feel very cohesive. I loved what the backgrounds tell us about Dr.Frank! All the SFX were perfect too, btw!
I think the only thing I'd say is that the text box is a bit overpowering. I honestly think it could be fixed with just lowering the opacity just a little bit? It's mostly noticeable in the beginning of the game, and when the full backgrounds are shown! I wanna see the goodies all the time! Just thought I'd mention.
Other than the text box, I thought all of the UI elements were great. Loved the lil skull and loved the build-a-boyfried box.
I also clicked don't click and I approve. Gonna fill out the survey right now but wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the game so far and how excited I am! Thanks so so much for releasing this dmo and good luck!
Oohh, good point. I'm pretty new to UI design and had tried to do some subtly transparency on the textbox, but I wasn't too happy with it. I'll try pushing the transparency even more at the bottom of the box and see what I can get!
And the full game will have some point and click elements to the backgrounds, so at the very least if I cant get the textbox looking nice, you'll be able to enjoy the backgrounds fully during those scenes. :)
Thank you so much for playing!!!
I yelled at my computer when the demo finished before I could see my boyfriend. Needless to say, you've done a fantastic job! I can't wait for the complete game to be out <3
Thank you so much!
And yes, haha. I felt bad for stopping the demo so short there, but I couldn't quite get the monster's sprite all coded in just yet in time for a Halloween release, so you'll get to see just what your boyfriend looks like in the full version! :D
Omg I can't wait to see my boyfriend!! He's a cutie with a green bowlcut!! :D
Hey, hey, I'm so glad you managed to finish the demo! It was really cute and hilarious and I can't wait to play the full version!
I really loved the art style for the opening, and I love the backgrounds, too. I hope you will consider making downloadable posters/postcards of the "Never Give Up" poster and the "Top Secret" plan diagram or something haha. I would love to have those to stick up somewhere!
Best of luck with the full version! I'm really looking forward to it!
AAHH I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
Omg, it would be fun to make a high quality mock up of the "Never Give Up" and "Top Secret" posters. Once I finish the full game, I'll think about making them for fun!
Thank you so much, and I still need to play Voeux, it looks so cool!
Just saying, I would totally buy "Dr. Frank's Weird Wall Hangings Postcard Set," if such a thing were to exist, haha.
And thank you! Please let me know what you think when you get around to playing it!
The new screenshots look great! Loving the options and such, haha!
Thank you! I'm excited to see what everyone's boyfriends end up looking like. :D And I'll have a playable demo of the first couple scenes here in a few days!

It's a work in progress, so you can't download it yet.
Hi! It's currently a WIP, but I'm working on getting out a demo of the first couple of scenes in the next few days! :D
So excited to play this!!
Excited for the full version of this!
