    What is this?: A Dating Sim where you are a human attending a high school for pigeons. Your goal is to become romantically involved with one or more of these pigeons. I pray that there are no H-scenes. This is the full version. This is a completely blind LP.

    Why is this?: I wish I knew. Perhaps, to quote a Bioware Social user, “Humans are too boring.”

    When is this?: In the not so distant future...

    Down the rabbit hole we go.

    This game has character creation! With RPG elements like this, the game pleases old-school fans of the genre, despite romance-centric gameplay accessible to the mainstream audience. Hamburger Hepler's dream RPG has already been made, and it is called Hatoful Boyfriend.

    What do we want to name our character? It's probably meant to be a girl, but given that trannies are an integral part of the Codex, and it's already interspecies, male names are fine too. Some fine candidates:

    Hisao Nakai: Everyone's least favorite aspie cripple. I hear this game has bad ends, and he deserves them.

    Commander Shepard: Interspecies romance expert. If she can fuck a Turian, she can fuck a pigeon.

    Albert Tokaj: Are they really birds, or is it more Confinement Syndrome?

    Other name suggestions are welcome.

    Hatoful boyfriend is right up the codex'es alley. They're all a bunch of closeted weaboo faggots anyway. Be sure to show all of the paths that result in player death.

    Clearly, the characters last name should be Potato, thus ensuring a religious following from all the polish KKKodexians.

    Oh, it's a real game all right. It has it all.
    [edit]Bunch of spoilers removed[/edit]

    It's right up there with sengoku Rance. Except it has pigeons instead of vaginas.

    HATOFUL BOYFRIEND is the game bioware wish they were brave enough to make

    This is as real as it gets. 8 potential pigeon romance partners, 13 endings, everything one could ask for in a dating sim. Help me decide on a name for our hero/heroine, and you will see the full majesty and unparalleled emotional engagement this story produces.

    This game is amazing. One of the endings involves turn based combat, but I don't want to spoil anything. Are you going to let the Codex decide on the route?

    As for name: RK47 :smug:

    RK47 it is then. Since last name isn't used much I think, for now we are Ms. RK47 Majestic. I can change that retroactively if anyone has a better idea for the last name. It appears that there's a pretty large amount of text before the choices start up, so I'll try to get it out of the way as fast as possible. The Codex will of course dictate Ms. RK47's actions in her quest for sweet avian loving.

    Update incoming reasonably soon.

    [A lot of the stuff before the choices is pretty BSB, I hear it improves later on, depending on what path you take. For now, I'm going to just skip over some of the worst parts, replacing them with a short explanation of what happens.]

    [​IMG]

    It's already been a year since I ended my ordinary life and walked through these gates.
    I should probably say... This school is known for one thing in particular.
    This school is Japan's – no, the world's, greatest gathering-place for gifted birds.
    Birds who want to study the arts, the sciences, even sports all come to St. Pigeonation's.
    The teaching staff and student body are both made up of a diverse blend of birds of different backgrounds and species.
    I'm often asked why I chose to come here, despite not being a bird.
    It's a long story...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: Usually you'd have been ready for an hour by now, RK47! Overslept?

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]: Breakfast was a little hard to catch today... I can't relax without red meat inside.

    [​IMG]: Living as a hunter-gatherer sounds tough... I'd be happy to make you breakfast, you know.

    [​IMG]: I might take you up on that offer when starvation looms. Thanks, Ryouta! Oh! The bell already? Come on, we need to hurry to class!

    [​IMG]: Jeepers! No good being late on the first day!

    And so Ryouta pulled me along into the school. Today is the start of a new semester. I wonder what lies in store... It was all I could do to adjust to the atmosphere last year. Better make up for all that lost fun! Old faces, new faces... a strange thrill fills my heart as I look at the assembled birds.

    ED: The strange thrill of zoophilic lust.

    Oh! The teacher's here!

    [​IMG]

    ED: "Everybirdie" :retarded:.

    [The teacher falls asleep in the middle of his sentence. Ryouta tries to wake him up, because he's that annoyingly enthusiastic kid bird who even teachers hate.]


    [​IMG]

    I'd heard the rumors, but I hadn't expected him to fall asleep just like that...

    [​IMG]: Ah! I'm sorry... Isn't it a little warm in here? Which reminds me, we have a transfer student. Please, introduce yourself, Shirogane.

    [​IMG]

    ED: Well fuck you too.

    [​IMG]: Oh, well. I guess that's that.

    [​IMG]: Hey, hey, hey! That's no good!

    [​IMG]: But he doesn't want to introduce himself...


    [​IMG]: But we can't just let him break the rules like that, sir! The system will collapse, and we'll all turn into KULAKS AND DISSENTERS!

    ED: :hmmm:

    [​IMG]: …well, when you put it like that... could you at least say your name, Shirogane?

    [​IMG]: … Shirogane Le Bel Sakuya.

    [​IMG]

    Sakuya sits down, glaring daggers at Ryouta and me. I think this little bird is telling me there' going to be trouble down the line.

    [We go to the library and meet an antisocial mourning dove, who tries to ignore us as best he can.]
    [​IMG]

    [Not much happens, so RK47 leaves the library and its lone inhabitant, and goes back to the hallway, where she witnesses a little drama taking place.]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: Come on, Sakuya – what kind of thing is that to say to your own brother? After all these years!

    [​IMG]: My brother? You must be joking. You've never once been a brother to me. Please, don't try to talk to me again. I've no time for half-breeds. I'll be going, now.


    [​IMG]


    I hadn't meant to eavesdrop, but I think I just overheard something juicy! The ever popular trend-setter and ladies' man Sakazaki Yuuya is Sakuya's brother? I wonder what the story behind that is...


    [​IMG]: Hey.

    [​IMG]: !

    [​IMG]: You heard that whole thing, right? Are you a friend of Sakuya's?

    [​IMG]: I-I-I-I-I-I'm sorry! I didn't mean to listen in on you! \(^o^)/

    [​IMG]: Haha. No sweat. I try to stay sexy and suave in front of all you little ladies, but that there wasn't too cool.

    [​IMG]

    I've never talked to him before, but he's famous, or infamous, throughout the school. Everybirdie knows of him

    [​IMG]: You're RK47... right?

    [​IMG]: H-how did you...!?

    [​IMG]: I know everybirdie here. Besides, you're the only human. A single poppy in a field of rye. Did you say you were a friend of Sakuya's?

    [​IMG]: Not exactly... we had a rather ballistic introduction this morning. We're in the same calss. That's all. I'd never have thought that stuck-up aristocrat wannabe was your brother.

    [​IMG]: Aristocrat wannabe... he is an aristocrat, actually. The genuine article. In the flesh.

    He is!?

    [​IMG]: He's a bit of a pain, so good luck, mon amie. Adieu!

    He really is a noblebird... I've never heard anything like that about Yuuya, though. Probably a twisty business!

    [RK47 goes back to class, it finishes, and she looks for Ryouta, who is apparently in the infirmary. However, it seems to be empty.]

    I feel a little nervous poking around the empty room...

    [​IMG]: Woah, they've got all kinds of drugs in here! Ethylpar, tri-fe, rohypnol, lucio bezene... what do these even do?

    ???: Care to find out?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]: I'll feed you all sorts of things, if you want, Hmmm?

    [​IMG]: No, thank you!

    [​IMG]

    He's rather creepy in person, and has a bad reputation among the student body.

    Everybirdie knows that even just talking to him can bring you down with aspergers, psittacosis, or even worse things. And I never even heard him come in the door...
    ...a ninja doctor!?!?

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    And that is all I have time for now. Pretty unexciting so far, but I have faith in this game's ability to deliver. The music makes it a lot weirder, especially the fatass Doctor, who always has the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy as BGM.
