Turn a pigeon into your boyfriend in this Hatoful Boyfriend remake for PC and Mac

Japanese pigeon dating sim Hatoful Boyfriend is coming to Windows PC and Mac this summer from Amateur Surgeon developer Mediatonic and publisher Devolver Digital.

The visual novel first launched as a limited release in 2011 before drawing in a loyal following of fans. Hatoful Boyfriend players take on the role of the only human in St. PigeoNation's prestigious school for birds where they can find a bird love interest while managing elective school classes.

"Our research shows that consumer fatigue for space marines and dragons is at an all-time high  gamers are ready for something new and fresh," said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. "Semi-realistic pigeon dating simulations are the next great frontier in video games."
