What is a dating sim?
Dating sims 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. A romantic simulation game (恋愛シミュレーションゲーム ren’ai shimyurēshon gēmu) in Japan, can involve several technical elements such as a time limit, several statistics such as looks and charm which can be boosted through exercise, or an “attraction meter” which can increase or decrease depending on one’s decisions.
This workshop was originally hosted by our Montreal sister organization Pixelles on September 23, 2014. Thanks for letting us borrow Kim, friends!
