HuniePop: A Dating Puzzle RPG (Kickstarter)

HuniePop is a unique RPG experience for PC, Mac and Linux. It's a gameplay first approach that's part dating sim, part puzzle game, with RPG-like systems and a visual novel style presentation. HuniePop joins inspiring works like Dream C Club, Chobits, DOA Xtreme Beach Volleyball, Catherine and many of the wonderful dating sims out there in celebrating romance, beauty and sexuality.

It's an independent effort by a western developer (though our team is all around the world) for a western audience with the goal of breathing some new life into a genre that is greatly underrepresented both in the western market and the independent games scene. Personally, I believe dating sims can stand among the most beloved game genres out there today with the right level of passion and care!

The love goddess, being disappointed by the lack of romance in your life, decides to send Kyu, a magic love fairy, to help you out. Kyu profiles eight beautiful, eligible girls in town and after a few helpful tips, starts you on your quest for love...or lust.

This is an open ended dating sim that gives you the freedom to play how you want. You can spend your time with your favorite girl, building a strong connection and discovering more about her past, her personality, and her aspirations. Orrrr, you can invite a different girl to the bar every night and see what happens. We don't judge, we just try to make every play style as fun and rewarding as the next. :)

Image

At the core of the game is a deep time and resource management system. HuniePop has everything you would expect a fully featured dating sim to have. You can talk with the girls, give them gifts, show gestures of your affection...in fact, almost everything you can do in this game is done with a girl by your side; shopping, studying, working out and so on!

Image

Since every action you perform will consume time, you'll have to be strategic and cunning about how you plan each day to optimize your opportunities and get the most out of every minute. Each girl has preferences, interests and turn ons. So, for example, it might be unwise to take a yoga class with a girl who doesn't like to exercise. You aren't going to get much benefit and she will be unhappy. There are many factors that influence the results of a particular action so you'll have to think ahead and play smart!

Image

The puzzle stuff comes into play when you go out on dates with the girls. Each date is presented as a match-3 style puzzle where you have to earn enough affection, by matching heart tokens, before the end of the date. You'll collect different types of energy by matching talent, flirtation, romance and sexuality tokens and use that energy to perform special moves. People who have played Puzzle Quest will be familiar with this concept. You can learn new moves from the girls as your relationships strengthen and there are items and equippables that can help you out on dates as well!

Image

Some of the features you will enjoy in HuniePop include:

8 gorgeous girls each with their own tastes, personality and storyline. Choose your favorite one...or don't ;)
12 in-game locations each with their own activities. Attend a class on campus, play games at the carnival, go shopping at the mall or do some part time work for extra cash almost anywhere!
Beautiful hand painted environment art that have full day/night cycles.
Over 250 unique items (food, drinks, equipment, gifts) that you can purchase, unlock, collect and give as gifts.
Customize the girls' appearance with unlockable hairstyles, outfits, even shoes! The girls will usually dress up for special occasions and dates as well.
Characters with their own lives and schedules that also react to your decisions. Kyanna might miss her morning workout routine if she has to much drink the previous night!
An addicting match-3 style puzzle dating system with it's own unique twists including the ability to move any number of positions, upgradeable puzzle tokens and a variety of special moves.
A modest-budget game with big-budget value from a team of experienced and passionate creators. We are happy to go through great lengths to create breathtaking visuals, a brilliant soundtrack and ensure your gameplay experience is highly polished and throughly satisfying.

:lol:

I wouldn't pay more than the base amount, but it seems like a fun, casual way to pass some free time.

I was kind of ok with it until I loaded up the video and the girl said "hey boys, welcome to honey pop tee he he" and then I felt trolled, dirty and did an audible groan.

Looks good, the art while not great is charming and if it really capture what i love of date sims this project seems very promising, still cautious though since i havent see the MC yet so if he is named and have a set appereance the the whole project would be a waste of my money and time.

Mmmm. Will wait to support it.

I think the protagonist is faceless. ^^ There was something in the comments about also having a female POV that people could choose...

Pledged. I like puzzle games and I like dating sims, so it's a win-win.

Plus the art seems good, i hope is better than Shira Oka second chances that one failed in art and romance. It felt more like a "power of friendship" game rather than a love sim.

I doubt this game will reach it stretch goals, although the developer will try to get it on Steam and maybe there can do profit to ports (I want it on 3DS in my case)

HuniePop wrote:Jessie is a semi-famous adult film actress. After having her daughter Tiffany at the young age of 16, she got into the adult film business as a desperate measure to support her and her daughter in the absence of Tiffany's father who disappeared shortly after Jessie became pregnant. As it would turn out, she rather liked the money and attention that being a porn actress brought and decided to stick with it. Because Jessie wasn't really able to experience the carefree youthfulness of her late teens and twenties she never quite outgrew her wild side and tends to overcompensate for those lost years. She goes downtown almost every night to dance, flirt and drink. Deep down Jessie know's she has some growing up to do but isn't ready to let go of her lifestyle.


Waifu of the year.
