Hooked on You: A Dead By Daylight Dating Sim Announced

Hooked on You

Death’s a beach, and you’re dating a killer. Behaviour Interactive is developing a dating sim parody of its multiplayer murder game Dead By Daylight. Called Hooked on You: A Dead By Daylight Dating Sim, the game is coming out in Summer 2022.

Check out the Hooked on You trailer from the Dead By Daylight 6th Anniversary stream event below.

The Hooked on You trailer shows off Dead By Daylight‘s cast of murderous killers enjoying fun in the sun while on a seaside getaway. Four of the game-original characters – The Trapper, The Wraith, The Huntress, and The Spirit, are seen in swimwear, ready to mingle.

According to the Hooked on You official site, the Dead By Daylight dating sim is a single-player experience set on Murderer’s Island, where the player is tasked with getting to know the killers and striking the sparks of a relationship. Players will need to “choose the right words” to help them loosen up and deepen their relationship. Each killer will have multiple possible endings, including romantic, platonic, and even hostile outcomes. Considering how deadly the killers are under normal circumstances, a bad ending could be quite violent.

Hooked on You: A Dead By Daylight Dating Sim is coming in Summer of 2022 to PC via Steam. Behaviour Interactive has not confirmed a release window more specific than Summer 2022. The core Dead by Daylight game is available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. It’s running an Attack on Titan and Resident Evil crossover.
