People have tried to mix video games and sexy times together since computers were a thing, but they don't always mix so well.
Perhaps it's just as well that a lot of titles in Steam's dating sim genre don't take themselves all that seriously.
The PC is an open platform with tons of great development tools, making it ideal for small indie developers to target.
Steam on the other hand, has made digital distribution cost-effective, efficient, and accessible to a massive audience.
Or maybe I'm just underestimating the presence of some obscure fetishes out there.
Here are some of the most bizarre of the bunch, along with some user testimony about what these titles can teach us about love and life. You get to be the campaign manager for your chosen kitty candidate, and although the game promises six different hunky cats to woo, one of them is clearly a dog in disguise (looking at you, ROVER).
Cat President: A More Purrfect Union challenges the player to take on the role of 'an ordinary teenage girl' tasked with finding love, in a world where cats run the U. This game was released in August 2016, at the height of US election fever, so some of you might feel much less enthusiastic about politics right now (although the internet's love of cats is a year-round constant).
Here's what people have been saying: The Wonderpuss, despite the obvious cat-bias in their name, got into civil rights for dogs: You got Candy Crush all over my dating sim!
A bevy of 2D hotties are waiting for us to make the right move.I can't remember any other game that has tried so hard to make me dislike the leading girl than that game, haha. I'm gonna go with most people on this, optional romances are usually terrible.I mean, yeah, sure, she kind of had a good reason to be a moody bitch, but it certainly doesn't make her an endearing character. The Persona 3/4 series is probably the best at that though, with Persona 3 Portable's Fe MC story having the most payoff.I've already played through dragon age, harvest moon, mass effect and such so any other ones or hidden gems would be greatly appreciated.Genre doesn't matter Thanks duders for helping me not be bored And me! Although Naoto's relationship in P4 sucks because you are basically toying with her gender role. Persona 4 is great because of the time it takes to build the relationships.
