In a world inundated with dating apps, sims and romantic possibility, sometimes you just want to impale yourself on a sword. Kitfox Games’ Boyfriend Dungeon lets you have it all. The newest trailer for the fusion dungeon dating sim reveals a full cast of love interests ranging from a lasersaber to a cat, and you’ll be able to date (and fight with) all of them in 2019.
The game itself is a dungeon crawler. Players push through areas full of monsters in a mission to rescue weapons — cute, eligible weapons — who are trapped in the dungeon. There’s Valeria, a dagger who likes whiskey but dislikes ducks; Isaac, the epée who prefers the finer things in life like philosophy and haute cuisine; Seven, a lasersaber with a rad undercut who doesn’t like shallowness; Sawyer, a nonbinary glaive who likes social justice and video games; Sunder the talwar, whose flowing hair and ability to snatch a rose between his teeth illustrate his charms.
The cat silhouette that briefly flashed in the announcement trailer is named Pocket and turns into brass knuckles in the dungeon. While players can’t form a romantic connection with Pocket, they can form a close friendship with him, permitted they earn his trust.
Kitfox Games has established a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund completion of the game and the addition of Pocket, who is currently still in development. Currently, Boyfriend Dungeon is set to release in 2019 on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
