Hatoful Boyfriend is a short, parody visual novel with a branching storyline and multiple endings. It features a human girl in second year of high school attending a prestigious St. Pigeonation's Institute, which before would only have birds. As the only human in the school the protagonist attempts to find love among the winged animals, similar to dating sims.

At first I was very annoyed how shallow the game seemed. Days went too fast like you weren't attending the school or trying to socialize with the characters you were supposed to fall in love it. You couldn't get to know the characters much deeper and there weren't many choices for practically anything. And even if it took me almost 10 hours to get all the endings, one storyline with one character doesn't last much longer than one hour so in that aspect I would call it a short game. I was annoyed because I thought HB had only received such a high fame status and a positive rating due to some YouTubers playing it. You know those games that just get famous because reasons and in reality there's not much meat in them? I was so sure Hatoful Boyfriend was one of them and so I started to feel resentment towards it.

That was until in my playthrough, the path I chose with the character I could relate the most, a sad plot twist happened. And it blew me away. I kept playing and thinking "Wait a minute. This game is supposed to be goofy and funny with its pigeons and bird references. This can't happen. This can't be sad. What is going on!?" And as I kept going and choosing different storylines and different characters to romance, more and more twists and turns were thrown at me. So many twists that they could put M. Night Shyamalan to shame.

And I started to realize everything was not so superficial as I thought it was. Presumably the creator first meant HB to be an April Fool's joke but it started to gain attention so she began to properly work on the game. And to quote her she wanted "to create something that seems ridiculous and crazy at first glance, but that once you look into the world, you would fall into the depth". This is what best describes Hatoful Boyfriend.

And so it is unfortunate the best part of the game only comes after playing halfway through. It is a special kind of ending which you can only unlock after going through multiple other endings. This Bad Boys Love ending, as it is called, differs by being much more lengthy than the others (about the length of one storyline with one character if not even more) and having a different protagonist. From there on out the game changes from a comedic, teenage school life to a full-on murder-mystery solving. That ending is what makes everything better by having many heartfelt and grim moments which can also make you like a character you didn't like before and vice versa. It was at that point when I started to enjoy myself.

Likewise there are bits and pieces of the whole plot sprinkled all over which you can only find if you go through everything. Alone they won't make much sense but once you find everything and put the pieces together, things start to take shape. That student ID card you found on the floor and handed to a teacher? You couldn't understand it at the time but in the next storyline you definitely would. Or the suspicious conversation between two individuals? The strange death of one gloomy student? Everything is linked somehow.

Of course not everything is perfect in the paradise. There is a huge saving/loading bug, the latter one negatively affecting me. I could save but I couldn't load my saves (evidently rendering saving pointless) so every time I started a new game I would have to play it through in one sitting. And some people have had trouble saving their games. It baffles me glitches so bad have been since the release yet nothing has been done to fix them.

Steam only allows you to either recommend or not recommend a game so I'm forced to pick one of them. I have very mixed feelings about Hatoful Boyfriend. In the end it surprised me in a good way but there are things which got in the way of me liking it too much. It is the first half which sets the whole game back for me. If it all had been something along the lines of the extended BBL ending with comedic reliefs in-between, I'm sure it would have been that much better. And though there is some deep content to find within, you have to keep digging quite a while to find it. In order to witness the conversations you couldn't see before and unlock rest of the endings, you have to repeat much of the gameplay you already went through. This repetitiveness is tiring and dull.

It isn't a bad game, but in my eyes it isn't so good to warrant a positive rating.

Pros:
- Storylines are intertwined cleverly
- Numerous great plot twists
- Second half of the game (aka BBL ending)

Cons:
- Save/load bug
- First half of the game (before BBL ending)
- Repetition of gameplay to get to good parts

Personal Rating: 3/5 - Mixed

I bought this game because I thought it was a funny bird dating simulator.

Well, yes, it was that but it took a dark turn quickly. Very quickly.

Tears have been shed.

Also this game offers cute birds, and in 1080p too. Did I mention their human portraits are cute too?

But knowing me I looked over those birds and went for the psycopathic doctor. <3

TL;DR: You date a bunch of birds but there's a much darker story behind that silly dating sim. Just do it.

The only con would be that the story's just the same thing over and over, that is if you're trying to get all the endings like me. But if you have a massive amount of patience, you'll love it.

10/10 just go get the game

WARNING! Based on forums, this game may trigger high level of depression called "Avatar Effect" play it on your own risk!

You think that birds are dumb primitive creatures? Not true! For example, pigeons are learning and teaching matematics and music, they have complex relationships with each other. I had problems with japanese names. As a mid-European kid, i fell far from the manga genre, grew up on american comics and though i have my own manga favourites, i was not able to get too close enough to the genre. I remember the great battles of Yu Yu Hakusho with Yusuke Urameshi and Kazuma Kuwabara, the midriff tearing brilliant humorous moments of Slayers with Lina Inverse and Gourry Gabriev, or DBZ's Shongoku, before it was banned from my country. But that's it.

I read about Hatoful Boyfriend on hungarian gaming sites, there are no animal pornography, and too much foolish detailed conversations bout it, as they told. The protagonist is a human girl, the other actors are mostly male pigeons, they have been introduced themselves early at the story. Many lives, many fates, player deciding what will happen next, there are silly and realistic, serious topics too, it depends on us what kind of ending we get. There are a lot, so the re-playability of the game is high, it is like visiting parallel dimensions. The characters are very well personalized and all different lovely fellas, i don't want to spolier anything so i better stop here.
The music is very great, reminding me for the music of early Sims games, relaxing, there are 1-2 rock tracks too, reflecting for the current topic's mood.
Locations are drawn, with bird photos, and some drawn manga characters if we enable them at start.

This product is not that i've imagined based on the media, it is much, much more! Comedy and tragedy, with big plot twists at the end.

Having completed this game, I am at loss for words.

Going into this game I expected some Japanese weirdness and a substantially well-written story. It didn't disappoint, quite the opposite actually. All good and well.

After doing all "routes" for completion's sake, the game unlocked a... well, to call it anything else than an "experience" wouldn't do it justice. I shouldn't say anything more about this except that it's good.

One of my friends recommended this game to me and I'm so glad they did.

My thoughts throughout the game:

In the beginning:
Hey look! A pigeon dating game, seems interesting. Pretty funny so far and I'm loving the puns.

In the middle:
Some crazy stuff has started happening o.o. Really odd things but still entertaining.

Towards the end and the end:
Holy ♥♥♥♥ I've been smacked in the face with the feels train TT^TT. That was one crazy emotional roller coaster.

The plot ended up being way deeper than I thought it would be, and way darker. Beautiful writing, great characters, so many feels. Definitely recommend this game!

Hatoful Boyfriend is a game about a girl who wants to smooch birds.

It is also so much more than that, but it is important that you go into Hatoful Boyfriend with at least the baseline expectation of pursuing human-on-bird smooching. And it is glorious.
Hatoful Boyfriend is a PC visual novel about dating pigeons

You play as the lone human enrolled at the St. Pigeonation's Institute, a prestigious high school catering to a diverse population of roughly human-sized sentient birds.

Your childhood best friend? A rock dove. Your maths teacher? A quail. The cool kid and resident school bad boy? A fantail pigeon who inexplicably also speaks in affected French on occasion.


Hatoful Boyfriend could have easily devolved into belabored bird jokes and puns for a cheap snicker, but instead opts for a surprisingly cohesive fiction and is all the more hilarious, heartwarming and disturbingly dark for it.


All of this is presented in the style of a visual novel as a parody of Japanese dating sim games.

That is to say, it offers a text-heavy branching storyline where the visuals mostly consist of a portrait of whichever character or characters you are talking to standing against some background scenery. It just so happens that in Hatoful Boyfriend, those character portraits are photographs of birds.

The thing is, it all actually kind of works.
Hatoful Boyfriend is a PC visual novel about dating pigeons


The absurd premise is treated with such absolute deadpan mundanity that it is hard not to be won over by its charm and sucked into the stories of your avian paramours.

And the writing, despite abundant typos, is quite good when it comes to fleshing out your feathered fellows into characters who are worthy of intrigue even if not always worthy of a young girl's affection.

Then things get weird. Yes, in a game about bird smooching, things had not yet gotten weird.

Hatoful Boyfriend is designed to be played multiple times, encouraging you to experiment with branching plot threads in order to see every bird's romantic conclusion.

Just as each subsequent playthrough starts to reach a Groundhog Day-like rhythm, Hatoful Boyfriend dives head first down a rabbit hole of plot that would make Hideo Kojima blush.

And while the sharp turn is unexpected, it is a turn that the game completely earns every step of the way thanks to the balanced tone of its writing.

Sadly, for all of Hatoful Boyfriend's character charm, the game struggles on a technical level. The typo-laden script has already been mentioned, but bears repeating because of the word jumbles that made it past Mediatonic and Devolver Digital's editors.

The crucial epilogue scene, for lack of a better term, also sees your ability to save the game limited to certain rooms without any explanation. It is still possible to save the game outside of these rooms, but loading a save file there causes the game to start up without dialog boxes and making progress impossible. There are no save issues during the main romance plotlines, though.

Yes, Hatoful Boyfriend is a dating game with a bird gimmick, and that alone will be enough to keep many players at arm's length. But to pigeonhole your time at the St. Pigeonation's Institute as a mere gimmick would be a grave misjudgment of a game that is far more delightful and unexpected than even its bizarre premise would suggest.

I'm gonna be frank, DON'T BUY THIS GAME. DO NOT. IT IS NOT A "CUTE SILLY BIRD DATING SIM". IT'S A TRAP. When you are done dating your birdie brides to be, the game will ask if you want to fulfill a promise. If you didn't heed my warning before, SHUT OFF THE GAME, unless you want to explain to whoever you're living with that you're crying about a video game where you fall in love with birds.

This game may seem just a bird date simulator made just to provoke intense laughs, but it isn't. It's true that Hatoful Boyfriend provides a lot of funny, silly and even non-sense jokes but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Actually, the game is a post apocalyptic story full of emotional traps. It includes 15 alternative endings and a true one. You can only play the true one after playing most of the others, but I suggest that you finish every other ending before tryin' the true one.

As the stories progress and you accomplish different endings, you'll learn a bit more about different characters. Their stories, their backgrounds, their aspirations and their wounds... They'll look just like real people and you'll start to love them. Bit by bit, the details of each bird story will form the background scenario for the true ending that's completely thrilling, gorgeous and unexpected. Get ready to shed a lot of tears.

I recomend this masterpiece to every Visual Novel fan. Believe me or not, this game is much more than it looks like.

I would not buy this game unless it is on sale. For me if i bought this at full price i would have payed $1 for every hour i played, but if you buy it on sale its $2.49 plus you can sell the trading cards to make it just $2.

This was my first dating sim / anime type game i played and i very much did enjoy it. The game does not have much freedom of choice sadly you will have a game over if you make too many wrong decisions. There is many endings and i enjoyed every single one of them and each ending you pursue is unique has funny and sometimes sad dialogue. You will have to skip through quite a bit dialogue for the first 10 minutes as its the same as before if you intend on getting another ending. 8/10 game stay until the end!
