HuniePop is a unique RPG experience for PC, Mac and Linux. It's a gameplay first approach that's part dating sim, part puzzle game, with RPG-like systems and a visual novel style presentation. HuniePop joins inspiring works like Dream C Club, Chobits, DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball, Catherine and many of the wonderful dating sims out there in celebrating romance, beauty and sexuality.
It's an independent effort by a western developer (though our team is all around the world) for a western audience with the goal of breathing some new life into a genre that is greatly underrepresented both in the western market and the independent games scene. Personally, I believe dating sims can stand among the most beloved game genres out there today with the right level of passion and care!
At the core of the game is a deep time and resource management system. HuniePop has everything you would expect a fully featured dating sim to have. You can talk with the girls, give them gifts, show gestures of your affection...in fact, almost everything you can do in this game is done with a girl by your side; shopping, studying, working out and so on!
Since every action you perform will consume time, you'll have to be strategic and cunning about how you plan each day to optimize your opportunities and get the most out of every minute. Each girl has preferences, interests and turn ons. So, for example, it might be unwise to take a yoga class with a girl who doesn't like to exercise. You aren't going to get much benefit and she will be unhappy. There are many factors that influence the results of a particular action so you'll have to think ahead and play smart!
The puzzle stuff comes into play when you go out on dates with the girls. Each date is presented as a match-3 style puzzle where you have to earn enough affection, by matching heart tokens, before the end of the date. You'll collect different types of energy by matching talent, flirtation, romance and sexuality tokens and use that energy to perform special moves. People who have played Puzzle Quest will be familiar with this concept. You can learn new moves from the girls as your relationships strengthen and there are items and equippables that can help you out on dates as well!
Some of the features you will enjoy in HuniePop include:
Thanks to all of our awesome supporters on Kickstarter, HuniePop has received more than $20,000 in pledges and has been successfully funded! With more than a week to go, we're excited to see how many of our stretch goals we can knock down.
HuniePop is a fully featured dating sim blended with classic puzzle gameplay and enriched by deep RPG systems; for PC, Mac & Linux. We're very excited to be able to bring the fans the best dating puzzle game we can possibly make.
