Hatoful Boyfriend. There are so many things that could be said about this game. I know half of the clan has been gifted this game, so I’m sure everyone has at least heard of it. I’m not quite sure where to start so here goes…
Basically the game starts on the first day of school at a bird academy which is advertised as “the World’s greatest gathering place for gifted birds”. Doh! Of course I sleep in on my first day of school, Jeepers! I assume I am a bird, and everyone seems to be boys so I must be too. I meet different bird school mates, and slowly learn their personalities. One of them is my bestie, one is a pretentious douche, and there are a few others. So the school day consists of going to different classes such as PE, music, or math, etc.
So I got to choose which class I wanted to attend first. I felt pretty jazzy and excited so I thought I would try out PE. While getting ready for class I am told that I can’t participate because they are flying for class. So am I not a bird then? Half bird?? ...which half? So after feeling defeated for not having wings, I end up going to math class where a half-breed…or non-breed belonged…
The next day I decided to try out PE again, just to seek some redemption. This time was awesome, and I even signed up for a marathon. I guess I ran the marathon during class, but I never find out how I finished.
So after a hostile encounter with a bird named Sakuya, I found out that I was, in fact, a disgusting human. No wonder people were mean to me. I was a single poppy in a field of rye. My friend was busy with a pudding cup where he described as ‘Dancing around on squished pudding’. Yea I didn’t understand it either. He must have a bird brain… *slaps knee*
So I continue to go to school as the game continues. I swam in gym, join the student council, and all of the other glorious things kids do in high school. I did find out I was a girl too. SO I am a human girl in a school full of boys. That makes total sense. Eventually I bomb my midterm in math, and I stand up to a bully for being mean. Someone even made the comment “beats other bird up like a real gangsta pigeon”. I was finally earning some street cred with these homies.
This concludes the game play for this review. I couldn’t stand to play anymore, and that’s pretty bad if it’s coming from me. So I would recommend everyone try this game out. I never did encounter anything relating to a boyfriend, but my best friend did give me a ride home on his pink scooter…
Anyway the game has some racism and sexist undertones. It lacked the ability to get to the point quickly, and all in all it was interesting.
