Random: This Dating Game Is About Trying NOT To Get A Girlfriend, And That Could Change

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m constantly fend off suitors. I go to the pretzel shop and everyone starts throwing bread chat lines at me. I take a trip to the aquarium, and people are still trying to get into the octopus tanks to spell MARRY ME with the poor guy’s tentacles. It’s a real burden, guys.

Luckily, there’s a video game in the works that I can finally relate to: I just want to be single, an anti-dating game currently fundraising on Kickstarter. You play as Aya, a socially awkward, non-binary “anxious mess” (haha, same) who’s new in town and desperate to make friends…but she quickly discovers that her new haircut is just right. too goodand makes everyone fall in love with her.

There’s a single typing interface that you’ll need to use to talk to all the characters, and with that, it’s a anti-dating game, you’ll have to think hard about what the best thing to say would be…and then go in the complete opposite direction. You’ll also have to pay attention to other mechanics, like timing, tone, and even secret hidden dialogue options.

It’s currently fully funded for PC release, but one of Kickstarter’s lofty goals is a Switch port – if funding hits $80,000 in the next two weeks, it could be a reality!

OK, one last thing: you can pet the dog in this game. Here is the Kickstarter link!

Who is a good boy? You are!!! Yes you are! Oh Yes you are! Let us know in the comments.
