In this bizarre new video game you can play as a pigeon attending an all-pigeon high school and trying to find love, and it will be available for Playstation 4 later this month.
Video games have always been a little bizarre, but every now and then a new game comes along that shocks critics and fans alike. According to a report from Engadget, a new game where you date pigeons called “Hatoful Boyfriend” has been taking the gaming world by storm.
The pigeon dating game was first released on Steam, but now it is making a leap to consoles and will be available for Playstation 4 and Vita on July 21st.
The game may seem confusing at first, but it’s really a variation on a simple version of the average dating simulator, in which a protagonist goes around meeting new people until one of them falls in love with the character. If you’re not under the age of 16, this can become boring relatively quickly.
“Hatoful Boyfriend” offers a fresh perspective on this tired paradigm by replacing the human characters with pigeons. The pigeons attend an all-pigeon high school that’s filled with pigeon teachers, staff, and students.
People looking to try out the new pigeon-themed dating game can play it on Playstation 4 for the first time now, complete with many new additions to the original version of the game. New features include a brand new ending scenario and an alternative post-apocalyptic world that players can navigate.
Video games probably won’t be getting less weird any time soon. Embrace “Hatoful Boyfriend,” and bring a pigeon love story into your life when the official version drops later this month.
