Dating sim Hatoful Boyfriend coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC

The English language remake of bird-dating simulator Hatoful Boyfriend is coming to PC, Mac and Linux via Steam on 21st August, publisher #DevolverDigital has announced.

It will usually be priced at £6.99, but early birds can get 10 per cent off if they pre-order it prior to #release.

Furthermore, there’s a wonderfully titled Hatoful Boyfriend Summer of Dove Collector’s Edition that comes with a digital soundtrack, exclusive digital comic from series creator Hato Moa, a digital St. Pigeonations 2014 Yearbook, and exclusive wallpapers. All this for £11.99.

For those unfamiliar with Hatoful Boyfriend, it puts players in the role of the only human girl in a school for male pigeons. Naturally, your heart’s aflutter.

This is, unequivocally, the best title screen ever.

Hatoful Boyfriend was originally a Japanese release, but its outlandish premise caught on and the English speaking world demanded it not be left out of this surreal creation. As such, developer Mediatonic (Amateur Surgeon, Foul Play) took it upon themselves to collaborate with Moa on a remake.

This won’t be a straight English language adaptation, however, as Moa has added an all new scenario along with a new ending.

“You nerds can keep your virtual reality headsets and your haptic feedback,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Pre-pubescent bird love games are the next big growth category.”

To get an idea of how Hatoful Boyfriend works, here’s a video of someone playing through the original release with English subtitles:
