Hatoful Boyfriend will let you date pigeons on Aug. 21

Admit it: you've given serious thought at least once to what it would be like to date a pigeon.

On Aug. 21 all your pigeon dating sim dreams will come true when Hatoful Boyfriend launches for Linux, Mac and Windows PC, publisher Devolver Digital announced today.

As the last human woman in the world, in Hatoful Boyfriend, you have no choice but to enroll yourself in pigeon high school and throw your search for true love literally to the birds.

In this revamped HD version of manga artist Hato Moa's 2011 original, developer Mediatonic — the folks behind Amateur Surgeon and Foul Play — sets players in a world overrun with pigeon hotties just waiting to be courted. The game is available to pre-order through Steam now at 10 percent off its $9.99 price tag.

Mediatonic's version also includes a new, exclusive scenario and ending designed by Moa himself.

Players also have the option to purchase the Hatoful Boyfriend Summer of Dove Collector's Edition, which features a copy of the game as well as a downloadable version of the soundtrack, a digital comic by Moa, wallpapers of one of the game's pigeon heartthrobs and a digital version of the in-game yearbook.
