We’re guessing that you have yet to play a game like Boyfriend Dungeon, a special blend of dungeon crawler and dating simulator. The hook of the game’s premise is that your weapons are alive—but not only are they people, they’re also pretty cute.

Players will be able to fight off monsters and flirt with their weapons, which include talwar sword AJ, dagger Valeria, épée blade Isaac, and lasersaber Seven. Developer Kitfox Games unveiled two new weapons/potential datemates today: Sawyer the Glaive, the game’s first non-binary character, and Pocket, a cat who can turn into brass knuckles. But Pocket is just looking for friendship—even in a game with living weapons, the idea of dating a cat is absurd.

Each weapon has their own likes and dislikes, which will be key as the player bonds with these characters. The different aspects of the gameplay go hand-in-hand with each other, as the dating simulator aspect will level up your weapons and be reflected in the “shack-and-slash” combat portion of the game, which has players explore procedurally generated dungeons.

Boyfriend Dungeon will release on PC and Mac via Steam, sometime in 2019. As the game is gearing up for its launch next year, Kitfox has begun a Kickstarter campaign, which can be found here. Meanwhile, you can check out the new trailer and some screenshots below.
