Somthing about a pair of great tits?

Are you tired of those boring love simulations that only care about people? Ever think that games need more birds and anime with incredibly dark endings? Then you should play Hatoful Boyfriend. Well only play the game if you want to laugh, if you want an actual game to play this one should be avoided.

page 12 birdHatoful Boyfriend revolves around you starting at a school and trying to find your one ‘true bird love’. I am not even kidding, you literally court birds. It probably wouldn’t be as bad if you also played as a bird, but you are a human and dating birds. This is an actual game someone made and you can play.

The mechanics are simple, everything is conversation based and you progress with which dialogue options you choose. This drives the storyline, and you get different endings depending on which options you choose. It is primarily a dating sim but has some incredibly dark endings. One of them involves a student being killed by a doctor and you get tricked into eating it, AND if that’s not enough, you then die to be preserved in a jar. It starts with lots of hearts and cuteness and then ends in death. I would love to meet the person who made this game because it is just so creepy.

For all its weirdness it is a hilarious game. It is definitely something you should play with your friends as you will get a lot of laughs out of it. However the one thing I cannot forgive is the bird puns, and they are bad puns at that. They swap “body” with “birdie” at every opportune moment which is just unforgivable. Definitely something to try just to experience something that is the equivalent of falling down the rabbit hole.
