Did you think you’d miss your dose of beautiful bird bonding? Not a chance – Mediatonic, the developers behind the surreal avian visual-novel, Hatoful Boyfriend, have announced a sequel: Holiday Star. With the help of Devolver Digital, they’ll be bringing the game to us this year, and this time we’re going on holiday.
“While we would have loved to create an all-new franchise with our friends at Mediatonic, investing $350,000 in bird motion capture gear limits our options,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.
“Hatoful Boyfriend fans will travel to fantastically styled worlds,” the press release explained. “Meet interesting new chickadees, find romance in elegantly designed winter wonderlands and a new mysterious watercolor world. Dust the snow off your wings and take flight with both familiar faces and new friends in extraordinary adventures hatched from the whimsical mind of the series creator Hato Moa and developer Mediatonic!”
Our Fraser gave the bird dating game a spin in his Hatoful Boyfriend review last year; “I came for the promise of pigeon romance, but I stayed for the surreal world these fowl reside in.”
Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star will be launching later this year. You should probably start working on your best pigeon chat-up lines.
