Humble Weekly Bundle offers yet another excuse to try Hatoful Boyfriend

What do you mean you don’t want to play a romance game about pigeons? I don’t think you have fully grasped the concept, to be honest.


The latest Humble Weekly Bundle is getting a bit romantic, and is also a little confused. It’s called Valentines Day 2, even though we’re months from both Valentine’s Day and White Day. Also, the logo has ghosts on it. Is it possible they mean Halloween? I gotta admit, my feelings towards skeletons are – confused. I hear you can date one in Undertale and that is absolutely on my weekend schedule, yo.

Anyway, pay what you want for Asphyxia, Loren the Amazon Princess and the absolutely smashing Hatoful Boyfriend.

Cough up more than the average – $4.73 at time of writing – for The Royal Trap and Sakura Spirit.

Finally, an elegant $11 will net you WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.02 and TyranoBuilder Visual Novel Studio, allowing you to make your own dating sims, assuming you’re also a terrific designer, writer, artist and musician, or at least know some and can think up sexy characters. If you’re really keen you can pay $35 to receive a pair of “love pants” to wear while you play these. Dear oh dear.

Everything in the lower two tiers is available on Linux, Mac and PC for Steam or DRM-free, which is lovely. As ever you choose how your purchase price is split between organisers, develoeprs and charity, with Worldreader, Direct Relief and Rotary’s End Polio Now scheme benefitting.

12 months ago if you had asked me whether I wanted half a dozen romantic video games I would have laughed uproariously but ever since I gave Hatoful Boyfriend a try I have to admit I’m interested. No shame, friends; let’s all take advantage before time runs out.
