A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The Yum Yum! Dating Show, the greatest dating show in the land!

Featuring 6 potential partners, True Love awaits! But who will win your heart?

As a contestant on the show, you must first ask the boys a question - then, depending on their answers, eliminate them one-by-one from the competition!

The boys are whittled down until there's only 1 remaining - who you can then enjoy spending the rest of your life with!

(No refunds. Choose at your own risk. We will not be held responsible for any tragic events that occur from dating these boys. Please date responsibly.)

A send-up of dating shows and anime tropes, about 20 minutes per playthrough. Multiple choices - ooh! But only 1 true ending!

May contain a rude word or two, and a lot of innuendo. But apart from that it's innocent enough!

Note: The game ends with an Oscar-winning performance by the self_voicing robot. Windows and Mac players should hear this automatically, but Linux players may need to install the 'espeak' command on their system before playing!

what did I just play?

great take on a classic otome game though!

OMG this game! XD I was totally not expecting that ending. 


Nice game~ I enjoyed how it poked a bit of fun at the otome genre in a light hearted fashion (including stereotyping and cluelessness of the mc). Plus, the True Ending was just the cherry on top! (Funnily enough I got it on my first try... guess that speaks to my preferences eheh) I'll definitely try to see which other endings I can get.

What a riot! Haha. This game was so hilarious! I love the mocking nature of dating sims/otomes. When the host said "Shy Guy", I expected a Mario Shy Guy to pop out! My sides hurt from laughing. Thanks for making this game, I really enjoyed it! :)

Thanks for the comment! Really glad you enjoyed it, haha! :P


bloody brilliant, this game is super funny that i could not stop laughing, i love all the characters and all of them are hot apart from the fat guy............but poor him, but still i want to keep going to get the one true ending but also because it funny and i enjoy reading/playing this game. Its well written in my opinion but sucks i got forced to date that one guy lol . damn wanted that mysterious person.

Anyway your super funny and hope to play more games from you <3

Thanks for the comment! Yeah, it's a shame you can't date the mystery man, but if you could it would ruin the mystery! (Probably)


I love this game so much!!!!!!! Omg I watched gloom play it, and now im in wuv!


I think I found true love! Or at least I was forced to...and maybe it was just the hottest guy and not my true love, but thats okay cause he's hot! I wish there were options to remove any person, not just one or two choices per question. Besides that, the dialogue was funny, the questions were good, and it was an enjoyable game!



Thanks for the Let's Play, glad you enjoyed it! :P I just uploaded a new version today to fix the bug you found where the wrong guy got kicked out of the game in the first round! Your commentary and suggestions were funny, I'm sad I didn't put a Mario Shy Guy in there myself now! XD
