Have you ever heard of dating simulator apps? They are similar to a visual novel, but playable with multiple outcomes. The concept is simple: you control the protagonist’s actions, which usually manifest in picking one of the presented dialogue options in a conversation or selecting the next person for a date. Dating simulator apps are highly popular among the smartphone generation, and for a good reason. They are free, not too long and, above all, present the fantasy of dating several attractive singles at the same time. There are dating apps out there for guys and girls alike, and we picked the five most interesting for you.
Several Shades of S
A dating sim for women in which you play as a 25 year old concierge at a top-class hotel in Japan who has to deal with a streak of attractive guests that might put up a nice facade, but secretly like to play sadistic love games. And the guys are all brothers, not to mention the fact that their father is the owner of the hotel, so good luck! As the name Several Shades of S gives away, this free dating sim is highly recommended for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Another dating game for girls, this time with a meta narrative. You downloaded a mysterious app called Mystic Messenger (in the game) and find yourself in the lobby of a secret chat group, consisting of five guys. The game plays out like pretty much any ordinary, real-life dating application, so it’s highly recommended for shy girls so they can borrow ideas and use their experience on an actual dating site.
Moe! Ninja Girls
Finally, a dating sim for dudes! In this scenario you are a ninja who just transferred to a new school, and has started to recruit cute ninja trainees (and date them as well, of course). The story has multiple endings depending on your choice and is divided into several chapters, so the replayability is high. And here’s the best part: you can change the outfit of your girls!
Five Nights of Love
The quirkiest of the five here, this is a dating sim based on the popular indie horror game series, Five Nights at Freddy’s. This time it’s not your survival that is at stake, though. You have five nights to find your soulmate among the iconic animatronics. The game even has different levels based on the classic or newer characters.
Is-it Love? Matt
Those who are familiar with the dating sim genre have probably noticed the trend of using a Japanese art style. This game, made by a French developer, would rather go against the grain by featuring a more western style. The game’s primary language is also French, but it can be changed to several other languages in the option menu. The game involves a female protagonist and her romantic interest. The story requires energy as events unfolds which recharges over time, ensuring you don’t play too much at any given time.
