So, we’ve had countless love-sims where your goal is to win your favorite girl’s heart. Kemco’s Wii U visual novel game, Death Match Love Comedy, does the exact opposite, as having a girl fall in love with you could mean your death. The game’s official website shows us more on the game.
Basically, the premise of the game is that the player is a guy that just got transferred to a new school, and if a girl confesses her love to him, he explodes… and dies. Yeah. To make matters worse, he falls into some sort of love triangle with two beautiful girls, leaving his fate up in the air.
These girls are cute, but they’re reckless in many ways. Unlike other dating simulations, where your goal is to get girls to fall in love with you, in Death Match Love Comedy, you’ll be doing everything you can to avoid just that, as you try to figure out the reason behind the love-fueled explosions.
Additionally, there will be other mysterious phenomenon, such as angels, a friend who has some sort of prediction, weird dreams and whispers, and a strange pink cat-like creature.
While you’ll be doing your best to avoid an explosive death, there will be many other events that could result in the death of the protagonist. Witnessing just how the poor high school boy dies will be one of the game’s attractions, according to the developer.
Kei Yagi is the protagonist. He’s short and not too bright. For some reason, he has a body that blows up when a girl confesses her love to him. His favorite food is nori bento, and he hates fish burgers.
Rumiko Tsuno is Kei’s classmate. She’s a princess of a well-off family and has a cool personality, but she is said to have a number of strange weaknesses. She seems to have something she wants to talk to Kei about…
Otoba Shirotsume is another classmate of Kei’s, who is said to have an even worse diet than Kei, and she’s also very violent. She’s known Kei for a while and has asked him out on numerous occasions. She seems to have some sort of thought about Kei…
Finally, here’s a look at the game’s opening video:
Death Match Love Comedy is currently available on the Wii U eShop for 1,080 yen.
