Topics: Dating sims you won't believe actually exist | GamesRadar+
So you're going along, reading the description for Sweet Fuse , and everything seems to be on the up and up. The game is "a heart-felt blend of bomb-defusing action and death-defying romance" with puzzles to solve and people to date, all very typical of the genre. Then you hit this line, "Saki Inafune, niece to legendary game developer Keiji Inafune, cant wait to visit her uncles new theme park." Wait, hold on, hold the phone, is this Mega-Man-and-Resident-Evil auteur Keiji Inafune? Why yes, yes it is. Why is he and his fictional niece in this game? No idea.
Sadly - perhaps, even, tragically - because you are Keiji Inafune's makebelieve niece you can't date the man himself. In his stead, Sweet Fuse has a stable of hunky dudes to fill the game designer's shoes, including fighting game champ Kouta Meoshi and Ryuusei Mitarashi, male gigolo. Bomb defusing-antics are what await as you travel the park searching for your uncle and trying to rescue the other captured attendants. It's a ridiculous premise to be sure, but I'm sure deep down we all secretly pine for immortality via dating sim - or is that just me?
PacaPlus begins the way most dating sims end. Saeki Kazuma, just your normal highschool student, has a good life, good friends, and a loving relationship with his girlfriend, Izumi Yukari. However, things take a turn for the weird when, after a fun day at the Alpaca Kingdom, Kazuma awakes to find his girlfriend transformed into a fluffy, flirtatious alpaca. Maybe. No one else seems to notice Yukari's wild 'n wooly exterior. Kazuma must discover the secrets of Yukari's alpacalization, or learn to love her fuzzy new form.
