You play as Chizuru, who disguises herself as a man to travel to the capital of Kyoto in search of her missing father.She accidentally gets tangled up with the local police, the Shinsengumi, and the story evolves from there. It's a samurai history lesson with a Twilight twist.
This creates a very different relationship dynamic, since you are inside Haru's head and are the active pursuer, rather than the pursued.
NTY also features a cast of targets with a much wider range of body types than found in typical BL games, with some of the men well past middle age and even body-hair toggle options for different preferences.
Generally you meet several characters, and will have to choose one to court.
In Japan, dating sim characters are referred to as “capturable” -- whether that means you capture their hearts or their bodies depends on the game.
Boys’ Love (yaoi) games feature men in relationships with other men -- created by and marketed to women.
But the game genre has languished over the past decade.Welcome to Otome, visual dating games made with women in mind.They enjoy a healthy fandom, but many acclaimed titles remain in their native Japanese—frustrating, because romance and relationship games are more popular than ever.The Niflheim is probably one of the best free-to-play mobile otome game examples that I can give.The game has a bold art style with intense flourishes, and while you play as a Shadow Every-Girl, all your your potential partners range from bratty kings to zombies to ghosts.I say "targets" because all the men you end up in relationships with are billed as "straight" and Haru is an overly-energetic, horny puppy who admits he partakes in "sexual harassment" as a work pastime.
