New Releases: July 19th – 25th

 

After a small vacation, we’re back! So lets jump into this weeks top New Releases.

This week, we take a “Journey” through a disturbing basement, charge through a city as a badass Elephant, slice up some zombies wearing nothing but a bikini and find true love in a pigeon. Yeah, it’s a weird week.

Commonly referred to as the game that you date birds, Hatoful Boyfriend is a dating sim featuring a branching story and the ability to date birds (who possess human intelligence.) If you’re looking for a weird, imaginative story to laugh at, this has been recommended to me multiple times.
