Hooked on You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim, released quietly on August 3, was enjoyable. I've been hypnotized by its singularly savage Killers, limping, determined Survivors, and dedication to metaphysical spookiness while cultivating a multiplayer where people like to teabag.
With worms in your belly and no memories in your head, you enter Murderers Island and discover four cutesified Dead by Daylight killers: Trapper, The Wraith, The Huntress, and The Spirit. Trickster, the franchise's murderous K-pop star, is also on the Island, but you cant date him. His presence is just another unraveling 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 realize that you're also on a dating program and must remove cute Killers as you lose romantic interest in them. Both the narrators, who guide you endlessly and cryptically, encourage you to make good decisions and discover why you're on the island.
The Ocean claims at one point, opaquely, without acknowledging that counselors, other narrator, and love interests are all clamoring to assist you in achieving conflicting goals.
Gaming! Features exclusive ultra-fast wireless technology that ensures your mouse is faster than you are, is able to be sued alongside special software for exceptional customization, and has 11 buttons to mess around with, as well as RGB lighting.
I'll get help from the Ocean. One issue: every time you reach a critical or intimate point in character dialogue or in your discovery of the island, its immediately interrupted by the narrators' chirpy condescension, two Survivor camp counselors, or a snooze-fest game mechanic like quick-time events and quizzes.
Quick-time events refer to the source game, where Survivors must quickly react to their environment in order to stay alive. Youll be prompted occasionally to hit a screen prop, like a circular bullseye to impress Huntress with your ax skills, or a character icon to play spin the bottle, or a radio station to find something that will help you sleep using a spinning object you can stop with your spacebar. I want to see your nipples. I want to see your ni
Hooked on You is far too self-conscious to show off nipple. The game is oozing, spitting self-consciousness. It wants to be funny and upbeat desperately. The narrators are, by the millisecond, begging you to understand that they know that it's a silly game, but that you'll enjoy it nonetheless. The place to leave constructive feedback is in a positive review, according to the narrator!
The narrators are apprehensive that youll notice them through their half-hearted stabs at banter, but they take every opportunity they have to be liked out on you. I mean, you idiot! Oh, the two Survivors are having sex somewhere on the island?
The narration insists that just because we talked about doing a little talking, it isn't an open invitation to smash the fourth wall every five seconds. Could have fooled me!
This game was a complete flop. At least, it is only a $9.99 disappointment, and buying it will get you a Captured Heart charm and new outfit for Jake Park in Dead by Daylight. On a gameplay level, youll be able to find sexy Killers in Deviantarts unashamed and hallowed URLs.
