Hardcore pigeon dating sim to be playable at E3
Yes, you read that title correct, Hatoful is indeed described as a “Hardcore pigeon dating sim” by developer Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital. These two have joined forces to remake the visual novel Hatoful Boyfriend for both PC and Mac this summer.
The game is playable at E3 2014 by appointment only, so if you want to try it out, you need to contact the developers as soon as possible.
For those wondering about the game, it places you in the role of the only human in St. PiigeoNation’s prestigious school for birds. You will encounter a large feathered cast of characters and choose a suitable love interest as you manage your school classes. “Follow your heart as you choose your path and go on romantic dates,” the developers state, “but be wary of fowl twists and turns along the way.”
Devolver Digital’s CFO, Fork Parker, stated, “Our research shows that consumer fatigue for space marines and dragons is at an all-time high – gamers are ready for something new and fresh. Semi-realistic pigeon dating simulations are the next great frontier in video games.”
Will you find a feathered love this summer?
