I gifted Hatoful Boyfriend to my brother for Christmas last year because I was drunk and thought it was hilarious. He proceeded to do the same thing, and it was just as funny — because you’re dating pigeons.
But now everyone’s favourite avian simulator is a whole lot better. Why? Because it has a sequel and lots of Christmas hats.
It’s called Holiday Star, and it’s a Christmas themed sequel of Hatoful Boyfriend in time for the holidays. Like the original, it was released in Japan a few years ago but it’s since been remastered (HD holiday hats) and localised for English audiences.
Thank God for the Gull Guard

The description alone makes it silly enough to throw $11.65 on (at the time of writing) as a silly Christmas gift, if you and your giftee have a similar sense of humour to my brother and I.
Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star unlocks on Steam next Tuesday, and the 15% discount will float around until the early hours of Christmas Eve Sydney time (late December 23, possibly midnight for those in Perth) if Steam’s usual timing holds up.
