Honestly, I came into this game expecting it to be extremely weird, and it more than surpassed my expectations. I actually cried during my last play-through. Date the pigeons. Do it.

Over the years I have gained particular fondness for birds and their amazing ways of charming mankind. My favourite species are the tïts, particularly the Periparus rufonuchalis (Black-breasted tït), Sittiparus owstoni (Owston's tït), and the Poecile davidi (Père David's tït).

Finally with this game, I am able to fufill my dream of being able to interact and adore birds without even stepping out of my home!
5/7 would play again!

Only thing it's missing is a VR version for a full titillating experience.

You know for a jokey game it's actually really good. Lot's of content I got around 10.5 hours out of it. I get made fun of for playing it but it's really good give it a try.

This game is amazing. There is a really deep (and lenghty) ending if you complete all the achievements in game, which is well worth it.

My mom saw me crying at 3am with birds on my screen. My hunter-gatherer instincts did not prepare me for this.

Hatoful Boyfriend. A game that when I murmur its name in the cold wind of a winters morning - I almost hear a reply. When I play it i feel as though I, a small part of society and the world can actually achieve something greater than myself. This is what this game does; it comforts me, protects me, acknowledges me. It's like the older sister i never had.

Inspired by "Pigeon, the untold story" and the fantasy adaption of the manga "Hatsui Fantabolian" this game delves into the struggles of the kawaii female heroin <insert chosen name here>. She's in pursuit of senpai - the buff hot pigeon who's got all the girls interest. But will it be too much for him to bear?

Pros:
+Fantastic graphics
+Engaging subtitles
+A good plot

Cons:
-Senpai is often unattentive
-Pigeons can be overzealous at times
-No DLC

Overall this game is a breath of fresh air in the shoujo and reverse harem genre - giving its fanbase a new perspective on love, life and school in all of its glory.

Rapidly becoming obsessed with this game.

I expected a silly dating sim parody.

I got that, but so much more.

Serial killers. Biker chics. Fallen angels. RPG boss battles.

Oh. My.

Don't be fooled: this game is not hilarious. The first two runs are the most funny because of the concept; after that, it's still is a bit funny sometimes, but only because of the writing. You even forget it's a dating-sim, since it's not that focused on flirting.

However, don't let that repeal you! It is an amazing visual novel. If you get to the Bad Bird Love route (an alternative story you unlock by finishing the game with some key characters), you'll be rewarded with an intriguing and surprisingly emotional story. Seriously, the scenario of this route is one of the most memorable I've ever seen in a game. Scratch that: it's one of the most memorable, all art forms taken into account.

Oh, and also: Nageki for husbando.

Absolutely fantastic. You'll laugh, question your sanity, be delighted, then disturbed, shocked, and devastated. When it's over, you'll be so eager to spend more time with the game's characters you'll likely rush out to buy the "sequel," Holiday Star. And you will have made a good choice.

The game is a deep story that is hidden beneath the daily lifes of a human girl and her bird-classmates. If you're not sure about the game is worth for you, get it on a discount. Personally i think its worth if you need a story that doesnt take itself too seriously.
