I reviewed Boyfriend Dungeon for The Guardian this week, and it was wonderful to play something so incredibly unique: a dungeon crawler where you can date the weapons.
I’ve been waiting for this game for a long time – it was first announced back in 2017 – so it was a welcome surprise when it was suddenly released during a Nintendo Direct the other week. Happily, I can say that it lives up to expectations. The mix of dungeon crawling and dating works brilliantly well, the writing is top notch, and dating tastes of all kinds are catered for with the mix of men, women and non-binary folk.
I highly recommend you check out Boyfriend Dungeon if you get the chance – as broadly similar AAA open world games gradually merge into one another, it’s refreshing to play at game that offers something completely different.
