Hatoful Boyfriend, the dating simulator for pigeons, gets ported to PC, Mac and Linux

Have you been sitting up their in your coop, cooing all lonely-like? Are you looking for some silken, dove-like pigeons to practice your moves on? Well never fear, Hatoful Boyfriend is here.

Or, I should say, will be here. August 22 specifically: that’s when the PC, Mac and Linux ports of Hatoful Boyfriend will become available on Steam.

If you haven’t run away screaming, closed the browser mutting “what on Earth did I just read” or begun headbutting the sharpest corner of your table, let me explain! You play as the only human – yes, human – attending the St. Pigeonations school for birds, where your character will attend classes, graphic novel-style, while you attempt to woo the heart of one of eight luscious pigeons.

I don’t know why anyone would need this simulator though. Pigeons often hassle and crap all over my things for free. If anything, I need a pigeon repellent simulator, like a take on Deer Hunter that’s sponsored by Mortein.

Anyway, the game will cost around US$10, although you can get a 10% discount if you preorder. And if you’re mentally deranged, you can buy the Collector’s Edition for US$15, which comes with the soundtrack, an original comic, exclusive wallpapers of Oko-san – that’s a bird – and the St. Pigeonations Yearbook.

Perhaps we should start a petition to force our dear leader to play this game. What do you say?

… So … gaming has officially gone too far.

 

spooler,

I don’t know, I know plenty of guys who go to bars to chase after birds. This is just the next logical step.

 

Yeah…..

*scratches head*

I think I’d rather play rock simulator or tree simulator 2013 treeloaded. :P

 

WTAF hahahaha

They should cross this with Goat Simulator

 

sathias,

I can see it now.. A sequel that has baby goats with wings and pigeon heads!

… Also, maybe everyone else already knows, or their too proud to ask, but… What’s “Hatoful”?… Hat’O’Ful? As in, likes hats? Is it a bird watching term? Something poorly translated?

 

nastywetsmear,

Hato is the Japanese word for pigeon. It’s actually a bit of Japanese wordplay, as in sounds a little like heartful. But with pigeon instead of heart.

 

Wait, no pun thread for this? I’d have thought y’all would be flocking to the opportunity.
