It seems like an oxymoron to consider “Dead by Daylight” and “dating sim” in the title of the next game coming up from Behaviour Interactive. Yet this is exactly what Hooked On You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim is all about. The team is working hard to create the perfect romantic getaway for fans of DbD who are dying to meet their favorite killers.
The game is set on Murderer’s Island, an island paradise, and features an “unexpected plot filled with dark twists and turns”. Players will have the opportunity to meet and greet the four Killers who are on the hunt for the perfect romantic partner.
In the latest developer diary, Behaviour devs introduced these randy folks:
- The Trapper – He’s an apex alpha male and chiseled man-mountain who enjoys killing in caves, beaches, and pools. Put in the work to find the trapdoor to his heart and you’ll quickly learn why he’s worth snaring. Or mess up and become his latest victim. He’ll have fun either way!
- The Huntress – She wants it all: love, family, and someone to help her butcher men in the forest. Is she human? Beast? No idea. But her arms are out of this world! Now, this loveable squirrel-eating lady is out of the woods and ready to let Cupid’s hatchet fly in her new search for companionship.
- The Wraith – He is so much more than pure sex appeal. There’s a quiet, inquisitive, sensitive boy underneath that sinewy man. Did that come out super weird? Yes, it did. Are we going to change it? No, because The Wraith wouldn’t. He’ll embrace you no matter how super weird you are, and that’s what makes him special.
- The Spirit – This lovely lass isn’t your average goth girlfriend with a love for all things ghostly – she’s a literal ghost. You can find her hanging in the shade with a stack of classic horror novels, avoiding whatever lame beach activities everyone else is into. She isn’t competing for your heart. If she wanted it, she’d just cut it out with her katana.
