AMAZINGLY Entertaining Game!

Feb/20/2012  By Bon Bon Bunny Top Reviewer: 2nd Verified Buyer

Loved it!

Keywords the reviewer selected :

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!

Once you go bird, nothing's absurd.

Feb/19/2013  By Tikka-san Top Reviewer: 12th Verified Buyer

Loved it!

When I picked up this game, it was out of sheer novelty. What's the harm in a bit of silly fluff, right?

Wrong. I thought I would be spending my time laughing my head off at a completely absurd spoof game. Instead I became completely wrapped up in the story so completely I could not help but take it seriously at all times.

The amount of depth in this game is incredible.
Every detail has a place and will eventually make sense if you really think about it. This has some of the most incredible and thorough writing I have come across in a dating-sim period. This, from a dating-sim... about birds.

I laughed, cried, smiled, raged, bawwed, and clutched my pillow in sheer-terror (this is not an exaggeration). A full range of emotions that I would be hard-pressed to squeeze out of a $60 video game... in a $5 one about birds!

You have no idea what you are in for. I will never look at birds in the same way again.

Most definitely the best $5 I have ever spent on a game. Most definitely worth much more than that.

I will absolutely be picking up the next one.
This game has turned me from a skeptic into a believer. I hope that the writer of this game continues to produce more quality works like this one.

I'm in love with pigeons!

May/29/2012  By Taters Top Reviewer: 27th Verified Buyer

Loved it!

It took me a long time to decide how I wanted to write this review. The largest problem is explaining how you can actually end up having feelings for pigeons, as you would a human. I don't just mean love either, I mean rage and fear as well. The key I believe is in the writing.

Imagine how people must have felt when Walt Disney first animated a mouse and showed it to a theatre full of people. They would have been amazed and confused that a drawing could move like that. Also, for those who had seen it, explaining that they had seen a drawing of a mouse walk like a man, would likely bring chuckles from those who had not seen the animation. Slowly though, as more and more people saw the animation and became excited to see more of the moving mouse, people began to rethink what the theatre experience could be.

While I don't want anyone to think I am expecting Hatoful Boyfriend to evolve into a huge dating game conglomerate in 50 years or so, I do believe that the author, Moa, has done something unexpectedly new. Initially an April Fool's joke, the idea of using pigeon photos as the love interests was laughable. What happened after that was what makes this game amazing. Most people depend on seeing a face with human-like features to determine emotions, but without any of those kinds of visual cues the player is forced to imagine those facial expressions. Much like when reading a novel, you are transported to another world in your imagination; Hatoful Boyfriend just takes it to the next level. The art doesn't dictate what the character is feeling, but the art still adds to the experience, filling in the blanks visually, for things that might be difficult for people to imagine (like what a partridge looks like, especially if you've never seen one). The emotional aspect of the characters remains up to the readers imagination, creating, in this reviewer's opinion, a richer experience.

Hatoful Boyfriend is a well-written game, which I can't suggest enough.

Not just a pigeon dating sim

Mar/12/2012  By Ashurei Top Reviewer: 36th Verified Buyer

Loved it!

Yes, there are pigeons. Yes, you are dating pigeons. Yes, you actually want to date pigeons.

But under that girly, heartful exterior lies a plot so deep that it will absolutely blow your mind and change how you view birds forever. Especially fat ones. With a story that can only be fully revealed after multiple plays, this game offers hours of entertainment and emotional rollercoasters. You will laugh, cry, soil your pants, and once it is over, all you'll be capable of saying is, "THIS. GAME."

The only criticism I have is the presence of the occasional spelling mistake. However, most will not find this distracting, especially when faced with such colourful characters and fantastic storywriting. Kudos to Nazerine for bringing this game to the English-speaking masses, and of course, Moa for creating this magic in the first place.

Buy this game. Show your support for BL (Birds Love). It is worth every cent!

Pigeon love is best love

Feb/22/2012  By peridotdotdot Top Reviewer: 8th Verified Buyer

Loved it!

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.

Dating pigeons

Jan/11/2013  By MayuUrwen Top Reviewer: 36th Verified Buyer

Well, when I read about this game, the first thought that crossed my mind was: No way. And when I saw how many people have played this game I couldn't believe it.

So, why not me? And I downloaded the demo. I didn't play that long, just like 5 minutes when I decided to buy it. It was crazy, but really funny. I laughed really hard when I was playing.

So, do I recommend this? Yeah, of course I do. It has a deep story and at the same time it's really incredible. At first you'll be like: A PIGEON IS TALKING TO MEEEEE WEIRD WEIRD WEIRD. But then, it gets better. A lot better.
