Kaichu is an adorable pastel dating sim all about kaiju! You know, the unbelievably large monsters that terrorize cities and cause mass destruction like Godzilla and Mothra? Those are kaiju, and in Kaichu, you play as one name Gigachu. Only, your main focus isn’t destruction. You’re in search of a relationship, instead.
Gigachu will meet Kaichu’s 6 eligible kaiju and get to complete quiz-type interactions to determine their personalities and preferences. Each kaiju has their own storyline and romance obstacles to overcome. Gameplay is nonlinear, too, so explore the map in whatever order you wish. Visit 24 famous monuments as you go on dates and get to know them.
Don’t worry if you don’t speak any love languages, though, as kaiju are non-verbal. They communicate through a destructive courtship dance. Two news reporters will analyze, interpret, and report on these displays so that the player gets to know each kaiju. The military doesn’t exactly like the destructive display of love, though. They will even try to stop your pursuit of romance. Will you overcome the obstacles in Kaichu and find your true love?
SunnySide is an upcoming game published by Merge Games with a mix of farming and a dash of dating sim. The graphics are reminiscent of the Lake so it really has a relaxing vibe.

You’ll be totally self-sufficient when it comes to growing and cooking your own food and generating your own power. There will be no shipping boxes or other tedious tasks!
With that extra free time, you can really get to know the locals. Moreover, form friendships or romantic relationships, join groups, attend events, and more! With the use of technology, like your in-game smartphone, you can keep in touch with new friends, access online shopping, and store your favourite farm fresh recipes.
Coming Soon to Switch and Steam
The developers behind this beautiful farming JRPG plan to release it on PC and Switch in 2023, with PlayStation and Xbox to follow soon after. For now, you can Wishlist SunnySide on Steam here.

A particular dating sim/dungeon-crawler has caught the attention of gamers everywhere for its unique and questionable premise. Although, if you’re a fan of Anime, you’re probably not fazed in the slightest. During Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase yesterday (December 10th, 2019), the very same indie game by Kitfox Games (Mondo Museum) was announced to be coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2020! Behold, a game where you can literally fall in love with your weapons; Boyfriend Dungeon!
If you haven’t heard, Boyfriend Dungeon is all about choosing weapons to fight monsters with and then taking them out on dates to level up. Don’t worry, each weapon (total of 7) can transform into humanoids, and there’s one cat in case this wasn’t delightfully weird enough, all with various genders. Think Dream Daddy but the romantic partners aren’t daddies, they’re ‘stabbies’.
Your character is tasked with clearing the creatures in “the dunj” as their summer job and, during your down-time, why not take your weapons out for a stroll on the beach for a job well done and to get to know them better. As the developers like to put it: “A couple that slays together, stays together”. Below are the choices of heart-throbs, or rather heart-piercing, candidates!
Now hopefully we can all still look at our inanimate objects the same way again. Wonder if anyone thinks potatoes are cute? For more information on this “shack-and-slash” and to Wishlist it on Steam, go here!
