Festive Bird Fancying In Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star

Did you kiss a bird last night? It's okay, you can tell me. I know that you twitchers (and Twitchers, probably) have been camped out in your hides with your binoculars, keenly awaiting the arrival of Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star [official site]. You surely pounced on the bird dating sim as soon as it was released last night, so you don't need me to tell…

Festive Fancier: Hatoful Boyfriend – Holiday Star

There is no greater holiday romance than the one between George Michael and the wine glass he met last Christmas but for the pigeon fanciers among the RPS readership, Christmas might come early with the release of Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star [official site] on December 15th. It's a themed expandalone or semi-sequel rather than a DLC pack and the creator of the original game, Hato…

Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star Remaster Due In Autumn

You may have thought yourself an animal lover before, but Hatoful Boyfriend taught us to really love animals. The dating sim starring a human girl in a school for birds - actual, proper birds - fizzed with madcap charm, and it was grand when Mediatonic and Devolver Digital remastered it to introduce it to a larger audience. Now they've having a crack at the sequel,…

Hatoful Boyfriend review

At one point during the dating simulation game Hatoful Boyfriend, I found myself walking through a park with the guy I had a crush on as he confessed his profound grief over a lost love—how her absence had broken something deep in his heart that he might never be able to put back together. The catch, of course, is that he wasn’t a “guy” at…

Hatoful Boyfriend Spreads Its Wings

"So the joke is it's a dating simulator, but all the romance options are pigeons?" they'll ask, bewildered. "Yes. Only it's not really a joke. In fact, it got remade for a western audience because of how popular it was." you can now reply, smiling a little too wide. The world's most popular pigeon dating simulator Hatoful Boyfriend is now out in a form that doesn't…

HARDER FASTER PIGEONIER: Hatoful Boyfriend Remake

You didn't play Hatoful Boyfriend? You didn't? Look above these words. Behold your tragic error. Whether the playing-it-straight pigeon-based high school dating sim/ visual novel needs a remake I don't know. It was funny the first time and all that. But hell, better this than 90% of the kill-crazy bobbins that we're going to see pumped down the vid-tubes for most of next week.

Fancier Pigeons: Hatoful Boyfriend Has Flown The Coop

This could only be better if it was a secret game from Valve and Bioware, but there's very little proof that either of them have anything to do with Hatoful Boyfriend, a game about the complex relationships of pigeons in a boarding school. Haughty doves sneer at lowly sky-rats at St. Pigeonation Institute in this Japanese interactive novel. About pigeons. You might have tried the…

Bird Watching: The Pigeon Dating Sim

The words, I do not have them. Hatoful Boyfriend is a game about the lives, loves, classes and picnics of young, argumentative pigeons and their pigeon teachers at the world's only pigeon school. It's more a visual novel than a game, but you do get to make a few choices and increase your (human, pigeon-fancying) character's stats and... well, it's about dating pigeons. And going…
