Hatoful Boyfriend...
what can I say
if you're achievement farming, it's quite quick due to the fast-forward function but very repetative
If you want to ♥♥♥♥ pigeons then it's perfect for you

It's weird to say, but this game is actually amazing!
The story is a lot deeper than it looks. I went into it thinking it was like an hours worth of cheap laughs based on the absurd premise. but I got sucked into the dark sutext, I kept wanting to learn more about HB's universe.
Give this game a try, I recommend it wholeheartedly.
I won't die happily until Hatoful Boyfriend is adapted into an anime. Fite me.

To be honest, I've spent a total of three hours playing this game and have only finished with a couple or few ending, but I'll put my chips down on the review.


It's an interesting game, enjoyable if you like anime style and texted based games.

Not much I can really say besides that.

Easily in my top three favorite bird-dating simulators of all time.

It's a pretty straightforward dating sim/visual novel until you beat the game with all the main characters; at that point, it changes into a kind of murder-mystery experience that fully explains the game's (ridiculous) plot.

Funny and goofy, but also at times surprisingly tender. Overall, worth buying on sale, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who isn't already a fan of visual novels.

If the utterly bizarre pigeon dating sim concept has drawn you to Hatoful Boyfriend, then rest assured that it delivers this in just as perfectly a bizarre way as you could have hoped. Just don't be surprised if you actually start really caring about the wellbeing of characters on offer here, or find yourself totally absorbed as the story reaches its suprisingly dramatic conclusion.

People laugh when I tell them to be careful when choosing the feathery object of their affections, lest they end up murdered for political reasons or as a head conserved in a lab jar.

They are weak.
They are fools.
They are the first to go.

(What an absolute masterpiece. Don't let anyone who's not played enough to get the BBL ending tell you otherwise.)

Do you like dating sims? No? Yes?

Well, that doesn't matter, because "Hatoful Boyfriend" is hilarious, and deserves a playthrough either way.

I know there's tons of reviews for this game already, so there's not much else I can say that everyone hasn't said before, but what I can say is that I walked in blind, and it ended up being one of my favorite games. It's a treasure with a surprising amount of (dark) meat hidden beneath its little avian heart.

You will get attached to the pidgeons. Even if they are popular otome game stereotypes, each one ends up having tons of heart. (Some much more than others--LOOKING AT YOU, CREEPY DOCTOR SHUU) My personal favorite routes were Ryouta and Nageki's, along with Yuuya. Still, there's something for everyone, with some of the routes becoming surprisingy poignant.

The translation, despite a few typos, is delightful, and the writing was very clearly done with love. Even if the art is quite literally stock photos of birds, don't let that dissaude you: It's actually a very well-made game.

The special route, the "Bad Boys' Love" Route, also deserves a mention, as it elevates the game from "fun gimmick" to "wow this is actually really well-done".

And for those who want more of the fun (and pain), the Christmas sequel, "Holiday Star", is a nice addition to the franchise. All in all, while I'd wait to get this game on sale in a combo pack with the sequel and some bonus material, it's worth a playthrough no matter what.

It's birdy-ful.

I brought this game as a joke, I started to play this game as a joke. I expected this game to be a joke. Pigeons flirting with me and me "falling in love" with them felt quite ♥♥♥♥ed up and soo ♥♥♥♥ing.... wrong...

I either ended up with a lump in my throat or seriously scared to sleep... ♥♥♥♥'s waay too dark

Made me feel so uneasy time to time. I can never look at birds the same again. Here I am pullling all-nighters in order to get a perfect achievement.

This game is definitely not for everyone.
