The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #9: Hatoful Boyfriend

2 mins read
It’s that time of year again! The Christmas countdown is a tradition at Digitally Downloaded. Like the advent calendars filled with a chocolate each day, with our Christmas countdown we highlight a game each day that is perfect to help you get through the silly season.
Christmas is a time for family and friends, so it’s a good time of year to bust out the multiplayer games. It’s typically a time that people get some holidays, so it’s a good time to knock off some of those RPGs from the backlog.

More than anything else, it’s a good time for gaming. So grab a game or two from our little list and have yourself a Merry Christmas!

 The 24 Games Of Christmas
Day #9: Hatoful Boyfriend

(Read our review of the game here)

Our holiday highlights tend to be light-hearted multiplayer games or complex titles you wouldn’t regularly have time for. This one is more like a dare. For the uninitiated, Hatoful Boyfriend is a visual novel/dating sim about a human girl who attends a school for gifted pigeons. If it sounds ridiculous, that’s because it is.

Beneath the feathery exterior of oddity is a clever satire that pokes fun at anime and video game tropes alike…before hitting you with more oddity. It’s been around for many years as a PC release, but the PS4 version affords players the opportunity to easily fire it up on the big screen. Surely the thrill of trying to explain your hobbies to the friends and family that walk in on your avian pals is worth the price of admission alone.
