Hatoful Boyfriend | Title Screen

The world renowned pigeon dating simulator Hatoful Boyfriend has finally been released on Steam, GOG.com, and Humble for Mac, Windows, and Linux. Originally released in 2011, in the game you play as the only human student at the prestigious St. PigeoNation school, a school for talented birds.

Like many dating sims, Hatoful Boyfriend has your character managing classes and studying while at the same time getting to know and wooing one of several potential love interests, except in this game the love interests are all photo-realistic birds. While the premise may sound silly, the game is famous for it’s deep story and well developed characters.
