Inspired by classic anime and visual novel dating sims, SUCKER FOR LOVE: FIRST DATE tasks players with forming a loving bond with one of three Lovecraftian Eldritch ladies. From performing dangerous rituals, to keeping your demonic date happy, and even escaping from the horrors that you yourself unleash, there’s lots of fun to be had in the quest to obtain a smooch from an Eldritch goddess.


Publisher DreadXP and indie developer Akabaka aim to make players laugh, scream, and cry in this creative take on the dating sim genre that's totally not a horror game *cough*.
