Battle Royale: For Your Heart! [Parody Dating Game] UPDATED

Battle Royale: For Your Heart! (BRFYH) is a battle royale themed romance parody game in development. This game is a critique on common visual novel and anime tropes, online gaming communities, and, of course, the ever-growing popularity of battle royale games.


After watching SamuraiStriker, world famous streamer and competitive battle royale player, invite gamers of all skill levels to join him in LegendEx Games' Fighter's Cup, you decide to enter the tournament to try and win the highly sought after mystery prize.



The only problem? You are a complete noob, mistakenly entered the duos tournament as a solo player, have to scramble to find a partner, and attempt to win the competition!
Image
Select your avatar, player voice, gamertag, and possible duo partner, as you venture into an expansive virtual world alongside a colorful cast of characters. It is up to you to decide how the game unfolds. Unlock hidden scenes, build a bond with your partner (or enemies!) and try to win the competition!

Image
The Full Game Will Feature:

6 romance routes with an option to remain solo
Selectable avatar with voice options
Partial voice acting
Interactive Map and Mini-Map
Battle Minigames
A story that changes based on your decisions!
Image
The Convention Demo Includes:
Selectable protagonist.
Four endings and three duo partner options
Partial voice acting.
A variety of dialogue choices.
Two original compositions/
Custom sprite art, UI, and CG.
Image
Date a diverse cast of characters with interesting backstories and attractive designs.


Player Characters: Choose your player's appearance, voice, and gamertag. You're a new player on the battle royale scene and don't know much about the game or virtual world. Navigate the routes in order to learn about the game mechanics, your partner, and the world around you.
    Parker: A possible partner and romance option if you choose to be the female main character. Parker considers himself an inexperienced player despite having played in a few unranked battle royale matches before. Parker is more concerned with creating a fun experience for himself and his partner than winning the tournament.
    Visual Novel Trope: Shonen Protagonist
    Online Gaming Persona: The Starry Eyed Noob

    Female Noob (???): The player is able to name this character. She becomes a romance option if you choose to be the male main character. She is very standoffish and defensive about her play style. The female noob is determined to prove her skills and that she shouldn’t be judged by her basic avatar.
    Visual Novel Trope: Tsundere
    Online Gaming Persona: Scorned Gamer Girl


    MidnightFighter: For the most part, Midnight takes a relaxed approach to life... though this doesn’t apply to certain things which he feels very strongly about. Sometimes he’ll slip up and remind you that he is indeed not “one of the young ones” but tries to hide this because he doesn’t want people to think that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.
    Visual Novel Trope: The Sensei
    Online Gaming Trope: The Veteran.

    TwinTails: TwinTails is a peppy, vibrant girl who lights up the room… until you do something she doesn’t like. Her happy-go-lucky persona drops and is replaced with a scary woman. Still, one can’t help but be enchanted by her...
    Visual Novel Trope: Magical Girl
    Online Gaming Trope: The Secret Weapon


    SamuraiStriker: Striker is a famous streamer. He started as a competitive player in esports but has long since watered down his content for his younger audience. Striker has a dual persona. On stream, he plays the part of a hero, trying to garner more attention and views. Off camera, he’s a little bit different. Which side will he show you?
    Visual Novel Trope: The Legendary Hero.
    Online Gaming Trope: The Streamer.

    HollyDay: Holly is a no-nonsense kind of woman. She’s focused on winning the battle royale and won’t let anything stop her. Being hyperfocused on the win leaves others thinking she has a chilly personality, but in reality, Holly is a caring and compassionate person. She just funnels that energy into being the best at what she does: winning battle royale games.
    Visual Novel Trope: Kuudere
    Online Gaming Trope: The Sweat.

    It sounds different! Different is good! I'm curious to find out more, the brief description has got me wondering more about the world that they all live in. :) I think it's cool that you can romance the gender you didn't pick? Don't think I've seen that done before! How will the fact that they look so similar be handled?!

    I don't think there are any specific tropes I would like to see added, though it'll be interesting to see how many you add!

    Winner winner, chicken dinner!

    This seems really promising! I'll definitely be following your development!
    I currently have my eye on SamuraiStriker. Please make him an egotistical idiot, please.

    Thanks for leaving a comment! We'll be releasing more information about the setting as well as more in depth descriptions for the characters as time goes on. As for dating the character you don't choose- we'll be utilizing voice acting as well as different tropes (and a few other quirks) to differentiate the two, but it is still being explored and expanded!

    Oh, SamuraiStriker, the biggest and most famous streamer in the LegendEx battle royale circuit will indeed have some egotistical tendencies! Thanks for leaving us a comment, and really excited that you'll be following development!

    The post is updated with new information and screenshots. Also, this is a screenshot from our newest (unreleased) build (if you partner with TwinTails!):

    The extended demo will be 60k words, adding so much more content! This is slated to release by the end of August.
