Details about HuniePop
HuniePop is a game that practically launched a subgenre. This game from HuniePot combines Match-3 puzzle gameplay, a dating simulator, and visual novel mechanics all into one surreal (and sexy!) package.
In HuniePop, you are a loser. You try and fail to pick up a girl at a bar, only to discover that she's actually the Love Fairy Kyu! Kyu wants to help you get some action, so she'll guide you through taking girls out on dates and ultimately seducing them.
Dates in HuniePop involve playing through Match-3 gameplay by combining the correct symbols while avoiding the bad ones in a certain number of moves. Make use of up to 6 items to help you get through the date successfully!
From the game's Steam Store page:
HuniePop is a unique sim experience for PC, Mac, and Linux. It's a gameplay first approach that's part dating sim, part puzzle game, with light RPG elements, a visual novel style of presentation, an abrasive western writing style and plenty of "plot".
After a pathetic attempt to try and pick up Kyu, a magic love fairy in disguise, she decides to take you under her wing and help you out with your crippling inability to meet new women. After a few dating lessons and some sound advice, Kyu sends you out into the world ready to take on the dating world and a wide cast of beautiful babes.
