Some of you who like video games and often watch walkthroughs of games by popular You Tubers such as Pew Die Pie may be familiar with the games developed by Telltale Games, an independent American video game publisher and developer.
Among the popular games released by them are The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and The Wolf Among Us.
Company presidents, pop stars, samurai, and even chefs regularly show up as possible romantic prizes.
But the upcoming 90 Days of Love with You, or You-Koi, to use its abbreviated Japanese title, is shining the spotlight on a heretofore uncelebrated line of work for a dating sim: You Tube video personalities.
Video game magazines that I read regularly would cover Japanese imports and niche titles, but dating sims were merely a curiosity and nothing more. The games industry has grown exponentially and modern gamers are interested in titles beyond the scope of the action, shooting and role-playing genres.
The majority of dating simulation games usually has the player assuming the role of a male protagonist in the lead role, as he tries to win over the hearts of several beautiful girls.
Not all of us always enjoy games that are challenging as they can make us feel stressed when they are too difficult to complete.
There are times when we play games just because we want enjoyment and relaxation, or simply to temporarily escape the harsh reality of life.
All this is a huge boon for visual novels and dating simulation games, which would have lingered in obscurity outside of Japan, otherwise.
A bevy of 2D hotties are waiting for us to make the right move.
