Dating sims, or relationship simulation role-playing games (RS-RPG), are a video game subgenre of simulation games, usually Japanese, with romantic elements.
They are also sometimes put under the category of neoromance.
The most common objective of dating sims is to date, usually choosing from among several characters, and to achieve a romantic relationship.
The term "dating sim" is also often used incorrectly in English as a generic term for romance-driven games (ren'ai games), a subject matter which is stereotypically associated with the visual novel genre.
The game wins points for not taking itself too seriously.Merui is harassed by a griefer named Alistair who steals a valuable item she thinks is rightfully hers.He tells her he’ll give it back to her if she can figure out his real-world identity.Still, if all you want is a game where you form a relationship with a kawaii animated boy (or girl), Pacthesis has probably made a game you’ll enjoy.My personal favorite is Chrono Days, which involves a fairly lackadaisical representation of time travel, along with some steampunk elements, robots, and magical living dolls.
