  1. Fun story:
    I spent about an hour and a half talking to one of my teachers after school about Hatoful Boyfriend and how Anghel is just the best bird ever and how it’s more of a murder investigation VN disguised as a dating sim. Things happened…and I helped him buy a pigeon dating sim right then and there.

    I got a male teacher to buy a dating sim just by talking almost non-stop from like 3:30 to 5:00. Awesome.

    Also, Paul, have you gotten the sequel to Hatoful? Holiday Star? It’s set around Christmas time and I’m going to wait until next Christmas to play it. Though, I have tried the demo. It was really awesome, and crazy.

    Michael, there’s already a dating sim with kittens and bunnies as love interests. I played the demo, got frustrated with the gameplay, and stopped.

        1. Wow. I can just picture him saying
          “Now listen here kids. Just because my kind of shroom steriods help improve my athletic performance doesn’t mean it will help you. Im special person and you’re not, so don’t be an idiot and eat shrooms. Now, let’s a go!!

  2. First-person adventure games: Don’t forget about Myst, or that Portuguese mystery magic game that Christian played for “Speak American.”

    Second-person adventure games: Zork, Planetfall, Thy Dungeonman, etc. Someone is telling YOU what YOU are doing. YOU are being eaten by a lurking grue.
