dead in daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer game about torture, murder and unspeakable savagery and horror. But later this year he’ll experience a softer side of his personality in Hooked On You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim, which will let players play with four sexy psycho killers in the tropical paradise of Murderer’s Island.
For the record, this is not a joke. Behavior Interactive describes Hooked on You as “the first Dead by Daylight visual novel”, in which players will flirt with the Huntress, the Spirit, the Huntsman, and the Specter – with no licensed characters here, understandably – and meet their sweetest characters. , more sensitive sides. But while love may be in the air, it seems that copious blood spray remains a distinct possibility as well.
“Willing [players] find true love, forge friendships or get stabbed to death? Only they can decide,” said Behavior Interactive. “As the mystery unfolds, it’s their job to make sense of it all. What brought you here? Where did these Assassins come from? Why do they show so much interest? And, most importantly, if only one had to be chosen for love… who would it be?”
I’ll be honest, I feel like a round of Kissing/Marrying/Kill wouldn’t be my number one priority if I’m stuck on an island of lunatic killers, but I’m not a big fan of visual novels either, so it’s possible I’m not exactly in the spirit. of the thing.
While the game itself might not be a joke, it looks like its origins might be. Behavior Interactive said the decision to make Hooked On You came from a survey of fans, which in the best tradition of Boaty McBoatface said what they truth wanted from Dead by Daylight was a dating simulator. I won’t go so far as to say that Behavior Interactive called your bluff, but here we are.
Hooked On You is being developed by Psyop, the team that previously brought us I love you, Colonel Sanders! A good finger-licking dating simulator. In a normal world, this kind of reference might seem a little sideways, to say the least, but to our surprise, the sexy colonel turned out to be very good, though poor Fraser failed to dip his nuggets, if you know what I mean. It’s short, as you’d expect from what is at its core a novelty ad for fried chicken, “but it still manages to replicate the dating simulator formula incredibly well,” which bodes well for Hooked On You, as silly as underlying idea perhaps.
Hooked On You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim is out this summer on Steam, and if that sounds like your cup of stuff, you can find out more at hookedonyoudbd.com. And speaking of cups full of stuff, here’s one you can enlarge to poster size and hang on the wall while you wait.
