Hatoful Boyfriend

#1 Post by teacup » Wed Nov 23, 2011 4:05 am

Has anyone heard about this otome game, Hatoful Boyfriend [はーとふる彼氏]? It's been all over tumblr lately.
Well, I just thought I'd let you guys know that it recently got translated into English.
Even if otome games aren't your thing, you might be interested when you find out the love interests aren't bishounen.
“Welcome to St. PigeoNation’s Institute, the most splendid and greatest academy of the pigeon, by the pigeon and for the pigeon.

At first, you felt anxious entering a classroom filled with pigeons’ eyes peering up at you. But as you enter your second year of high school, you’re getting used to your school life, and enjoying the peaceful days…right?

Soon, you start to feel emotions you’ve never experienced before…emotions that could even be called…love? The unexpected softness of a pigeon’s rhinophyma…

This is a heartwarming love story.”
That's right: your love interests are pigeons.
...It's interesting. That's all I can say. XD

Download it free here~!

It took me a couple educated guesses before I could find the correct download link. I was using Windows and got a bit lost after clicking the 'Win' button. But once you're on http://www.freem.ne.jp/game/win/g03372.html , look for the two links which say ゲームのダウンロードはココをクリック! (You'll see a tiny red arrow and a grey square just to the left.) Click one of them. You'll be directed to another page, and then prompted as to whether you want to download.

Why do I have this urge to give him a big hug?!
I'm really liking this game. Despite being somewhat joke-ish, it's still good.

Ah, sorry! I probably should have given instructions on how to download it. ^-^;

@Higurashikira
Heh heh, I felt the same way about that guy. I actually went for his path first [didn't make it, though XD]
And yeah, it is surprisingly enjoyable despite... well, despite the pigeons [lol!]

Haha, I found the download and patch fairly easily, and I gotta say, thank you so much for linking this game~~ xDD

I've played through most of the paths today, and they certainly weren't how I expected them to be. The humour was great too xDDD

And in the unzipped English Patch file, there is a readme, do just as the readme says. 8D

(And in case you are like me...) you need QuickTime to run the game.

Is this sort of thing going to become a trend? Because that would be amazing.

Pool's closed, there is no ren'ai game that can ever top this. Okosan is mai husbando
Forever Alone: Nerds the Gathering - A brotome game. (Nerdy Valentine's Day Card and small status update 2/14/14)
Night at the Hospital - Maiden voyage of Team Snugglebunny
Skylessia: Tale of the Boon - Epic fantasy whatsit, currently on hiatus.
Viking Pipsqueak Productions Blog (under construction)

I occasionally frequently draw other people's characters. Now offering delinquentization, medievalization, and cyborgification. Hit me up in PM if you want sprites for your KN or non-ren'ai VN.

EVEN IF THE TENDONS OF MY THUMBS TEAR INTO NOTHINGNESS, EVEN IF I GO NEARSIGHTED FROM STARING TOO HARD AT THE SCREEN, EVEN IF MY BODY IS CLOSE TO COLLAPSE FROM THE 72 HOURS I HAVE GONE WITHOUT FOOD! I WILL DEFEAT YOU!

I dunno, but I sure hope so :lol:

Tumblr finally convinced me to try it out in the end. And I am looking forward to the drama CDs with awesome seiyuu selection (like you can see when the characters are introduced in the game). And despite the odd idea of having bird sprites and birds romancing you/you romancing birds, it is really cute~

I do hope we someday might see an English translation patch for the full game. I'd be willing to pay the 500yen or something for that. With longer gameplay, more information and everything.

The one drawback from this game...I walk through the city, see doves AND GODDAMNIT CANNOT SEE THEM AS NORMAL DOVES AGAIN.
