If youve ever watched a male pigeon puffing up, cooing and dancing in front of a lady pigeon and sadly thought to yourself that youd love to be romanced that way, you probably havent yet played Hatoful Boyfriend (Steam link), the game where youre romanced by pigeons (also based on an April Fools project).
