Boyfriend Dungeon [Official Site] from Kitfox Games (Moon Hunters) promises a rather unusual action-RPG dungeon crawler, one where your weapons actually transform into 'beautiful people' you can take out for a date.

 Boyfriend Dungeon is an action-RPG dungeon crawler in which the weapons you use transform into beautiful people -- take them on dates to level them up and become more powerful together.

I will admit, I actually quite like the idea of this. They must really be onto something too, since it only arrived in my inbox a few hours ago and on Kickstarter they've already managed to hit their initial goal—crazy!

Features:

  • Date up to six weapons, from dancing swords to heart-piercing daggers
  • Generated action-combat dunj and challenges
  • Various combat styles. For example, hit hard and dodge quickly with the dagger, or take on crowds with Lasersaber
  • Inclusive, tasteful approach to gender and sexuality, including male, female, and non-binary romance
  • Take your weapon-babes on romantic outings, such as to the club or the beach

The best news, is that Kitfox will continue to support Linux gaming as it's listed rather clearly as a platform. It doesn't currently show Linux support on the Steam page though, hopefully they will mention that sometime later. 

Find it on Kickstarter.

Of course that's a thing

Well, that entire premise has me giggling.

Not much for dating games or dungeon crawlers, but something about the combination makes me want to buy it anyway.

Oh man and here I was thinking I 100% didn't want to play any dating sim ever...

Like Elemental Gelade but contrariwise?

Reminds me of this anime: http://www.crunchyroll.com/to-be-heroine . I think it's a eastern cultural/spiritual thing.

Yeah ... no.

Not my style but as a vanilla westerner i am amused by the idea.
