Pickup!Pigeon love is best love

Back when I first played the demo, all I could think was "haha, pigeon boyfriends!" And then things got serious. There was plot. There was drama. And I fell in love with birds through it all.

And the complete edition? It brings all of that and more. The demo version left a lot of loose ends, which the full does a perfect job of tying together. This game is full of humor, but does a brilliant job of sobering up, especially once you start up the Hurtful side of things (and that route is so very aptly named). The characters are all unique and have amazing personalities, and the PC is probably one of the best (what with her hunter-gatherer instincts and such) - you'll definitely grow attached to them. The plot is like a roller coaster ride at times, and replaying the dating aspect after completing the Hurtful route just adds another level of depth to to the game, shedding new light on the birds. There's a certain complexity to this game that I never saw coming, and it was a joy to experience, even through all the dramatic feelings I had for the characters.

Can I really express how good this game is? Probably not. It's certainly unique, and it's definitely got enough content in it to be more than worth the money spent on it. Yeah, you're going to romance some birds - but really, it's the best love there is.

I haven't played through the full version yet, but I can already tell you that it has a lot more scenarios than the trial version. And the extra character, Angel, shows up as well!
I never expected to feel this way about pigeons, but the creator of this game has introduced me to an entirely new world.
The dialogue is amusing, the OST is great and you'll find the stories surprisingly compelling.
It's only 5 USD, and you'd be supporting more original ideas like this one. I'm very happy it got translated, and hoping to see HolidayStar get released in the future!

Pickup!AMAZINGLY Entertaining Game!

Okay, yes, the entire premise of this game is absolutely insane. But before you are even halfway done with your selected story arc, you will forget that the characters you're watching on the screen are pigeons.

There are hours and hours of replay value loaded into this game. Not only are there branches upon branches of story, but more options are unlocked at key decision points as you clear the game multiple times, opening the path for MORE endings!

Hatoful Boyfriend has hilarious and engaging dialogue. And somehow, simultaneously, a deeply engrossing, dark, and intense plot. The severity of the 'real' plot of the game is only made clearer as you play through the game multiple times and piece together parts you've learned from each branching storyline you complete.

In conclusion, the price for this level of entertainment is MORE than fair. This is a must-play for anyone with a sense of humor tilted toward the weird who also appreciate intense storytelling and memorable characters.

Carve it into your soul!
