i really wanted to Addicted to You: A Dating Sim Dead by Daylight, released quietly on August 3 to be good. The asymmetrical online survival horror Dead by daylight first caught my attention between his bloody teeth in Mayand ever since I’ve been mesmerized by its uniquely ferocious killers, limping, determined survivors, and its devotion to metaphysical spookyness while cultivating multiplayer People like tea bags. As a product of dusk Generation, I’m a fan of crappy romance, and I thought a serial killer dating sim might be an interesting way to explore it why women and MichaelDouglas ever thirsty for a crappy romance. but Addicted to You is not at all interesting, thoughtful or very funny in terms of romance.

You’ll be washed up on Murderer’s Island with worms in your stomach and no memories in your head. In quick succession, you come across a skull buried in the sand, vomit, and come across four smaller ones Dead by daylight Killers: Trapper, The Wraith, The Huntress and The Spirit. Ironically, Trickster, the franchise’s killer K-pop star, is also on the island, but you can’t date him. Its presence is mostly eye candy and another frayed thread in an already weak and mangled plot.

So, you wash up on this island and wipe the vomit off your face just in time to meet some beefcake killers. Eventually you discover that you are also on a dating show and need to eliminate cute killers as you lose romantic interest in them. The two narrators, the talking spirit of the ocean and the standard narrator who gives you prompts, also incessantly and cryptically encourage you to make good choices and figure out why you’re on the island.

“I may be the only one who can help you right now,” Ocean says opaquely at one point, not acknowledging that the counselors, other narrators, and love interests are all also vocal about helping you with conflicting goals.

Great question.

But sure, I will accept help from the ocean. One problem: every time you hit a critical or intimate point in character dialogue and in your discovery of the island, it’s instantly punctuated by the blithely condescending narrators, two survivor camp advisers, or a slumberfest game mechanic like quick-time events interrupted and quiz.

The presence of quick-time events is related to the source game, where survivors must react quickly to their surroundings to stay alive. in the Addicted to You, but quick-time events are meaningless. You will occasionally be prompted to hit a “target” that appears on screen, e.g. B. a circular bullseye to impress Huntress with your ax skills. character icon to play Spin the Bottle, or Radio Stations to find something to help you fall asleep using a spinning object that you can stop with the spacebar. But aside from prompting dialogue about your performance and the narrator’s ramblings about your score, quick-time events mostly feel like uncreative ways to keep you from getting to the good stuff. The game’s quizzes feel the same way. My character, Jimothy, decided to go on a romantic date with The Wraith, but instead of a real romance, The Wraith gave me an educational quiz with three questions about constellations. Wraith, I don’t want to talk about Horologium, I want to see your nipples.

Addicted to You is way too confident to show nipples. The game is full of self-confidence. It wants to be crazy and optimistic desperate – it feels like the narrators are begging you every millisecond to understand that they know it’s a silly premise for a game b-but you’re kinda having fun, aren’t you? More than once, the narrators emphasize that they know the game isn’t perfect, but they order you to enjoy it anyway. Or “it’s still really cool when you have constructive feedback,” the narrator says literally, “the place to leave that is with a positive review because we all know that nobody gets negative reviews of games – erm – resorts like this reads.” Ha ha, they broke the fourth wall!

The narrators are afraid you’ll see through their repetitive, half-hearted banter, but they take their desperation to make them feel liked at every opportunity. Oh, you find these attractive killers attractive? Um, they’re literally killers, you idiot! Oh, it sounds like the two survivors are having sex somewhere on the island? Ew, don’t say that, sex is so gross! At one point, the narrator, who you talk to more often than any of the killers you’re supposed to woo, chides you for the way the game is set up.

“Just because we’ve talked a little bit about talking a little bit doesn’t make it an open invitation to smash the fourth wall every five seconds,” says the narrator. could have fooled me!

This game was such a big disappointment. At least it’s only a disappointment at $9.99, and buying it also gets you a Captured Heart charm and a new outfit for Survivor Jake Park Dead by daylight. For everything else, on a horny level, you’ll find sexy killers in Deviantart’s outrageous and hallowed URLs. Try at gameplay level sucker for love or Monster Prom for a horror dating sim that explores the strange, troubled relationship between love and fear with measured humor and heart. I thought it might add something of value to the fields of bizarre but funny dating sims that are burgeoning on the internet, but in short, Addicted to You is not something worth dying for.
