We truly live in the golden age of video games. The proliferation of dating sim aspects in games like Mass Effect, in addition to the rise in localization of romantic visual novels means that we have no shortage of glorious 2D surrogate boyfriends and girlfriends of all forms, be they fair… or fowl!
Due this autumn, Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star is the sequel to the cult game where you could date different birds. The entire thing is a comical affair, poking affectionate fun at anime and visual novel tropes, finding itself littering crumbs in the hearts of niche gamers everywhere. With a sequel announced, it’s an exciting time to be a bird-lover.
