Hooked on you, the huntress

I feel like she will kill me if I don’t support her anyway.

It’s pretty mind-boggling to realize that this actually exists. Seeing the Behavior Interactive logo once the game starts makes you think it’s going to be a AAA effort, but you’ll quickly get the same kind of audio-visual treatment you’d get from your average amateur dating sim flooding the Steam market. Simple music, no voice acting, static images, manga style character portraits with wacky poses, those really cheap looking text boxes that resemble the default presets from RPG creator, and so. That said, I have to admit: hooked on you features some incredibly well-drawn characters, even if they’re completely ridiculous if you know their original counterparts.

You are here because you want to witness the insanity that is the plot in a dating sim where you get to get naughty with a bunch of demonic serial killers enjoying a summer vacation on an island. Despite the limited amount of interactivity this title offers, I have to admit that I had a lot more fun with this intentionally silly dating sim than I could have ever expected.

 Storyteller

I mean, the narrator is not lying. They are sexy.

It’s all about the level of humor and the quality of the writing. Hooked On You: A Dating Sim Dead By Daylight he knows he is foolish and makes the best of this situation. The killers are horny for you, the narrator speaks directly to you at all times, even the damn ocean is somehow self-aware and really passive aggressive with your decisions. Although the game is basically a bunch of text with occasional dialogue options to choose from, I was impressed by the sheer number of results available. Not only because of the number of eligible killers singles at your disposal, but also for the various endings you could get, depending on your actions. We are talking about dead by daylightafter all.

 Hooked on your corpse

However, you can’t get away with this particular rotten head.

There is not much more that needs to be said. hooked on you is exactly what it sounds like. One of the weirdest games I’ve played this year, but I certainly don’t regret tackling it.

Although hooked on you It’s mainly made up of static images, I have to admit that everything is very well drawn.

There is not much gameplay. Despite being a dating simulator, hooked on you it features only the bare minimum of interactivity, enough to generate a handful of different outcomes, and limited plays as a result.

No voice acting and very few sound effects. It’s just a bunch of catchy music. Not much catchy music, but catchy nonetheless.

Even though it looks and feels overly buff, I feel like this was one of the things he did hooked on you so lovely. It’s a good distraction for some games, even if it’s more than basic. The mere fact that it exists is already a joke in itself.
