Dating Sim Games

Dating sim games also known as dating simulation games are a subgenre of neoromance and are video games designed by the Japenese companies. The genre of the game is also associated with a visual novel which is an anime themed video game with some live action. Although the two might have separate themes, however, the visual content of both are quite similar. The goal of the game is to date another character and create a romantic relationship with that character.

Dating sim games are romantic simulation games in which the player will have to romance their character in the midst of multiple challenges such as a fixed time limit or overcoming obstacles created by the other characters. These games usually involve a meter bar that could represent your relationship status or the progress of the game. This meter bar is fueled based on the decisions that your character makes in the game.

The course of the game follows a gamed based character that is surrounded by their possible love interests. In the entire game, the player who controls his/her role has to make his character set up an interesting chat with their would-be dates. This game is progressed by selecting correct dialogues that shoot up your love meter bar. The length of the game is fixed based on weeks, months or years. At the end of the game, the player will either win the game or lose it, depending on whether he has been successful in dating the other character. These games may involve explicit sexual dating details although the content might vary from company to company producing the game.
