A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

๐Ÿ‘Š WDS ๐Ÿ‘Š

(THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR 14K+ DOWNLOADS!)


In modern day Japan there lives two rival gangs: Spurious and Kosher.

The Kosher gang demands justice while Spurious demands freedom. While these two gangs are causing a ruckus, there is a lonesome boy caught up in all of it. It's you! A total loser who is deathly afraid of thugs. But perhaps you can overcome your fear? Maybe you can even ... fall in love?! Or get punched a lot accompanied by a voice grumbling "MRGRGR."

WORST DATING SIM is a shitpost dating sim involving thugs, hugs, and ughs. I hope you enjoy!

๐Ÿ‘Š FEATURES ๐Ÿ‘Š

WORST DATING SIM (WDS) has absolutely NO SAVE FUNCTION! Incredible, right? And if you're a masochist, you're in luck! WDS has 69 BAD ENDS (the number was unintentional, I swear) where you get punched! This game also contains some blood, ew.

WDS has one OFFICIAL bad end and one OFFICIAL good end!

WDS is rated PG16+.

๐Ÿ‘Š PLANNED UPDATES ๐Ÿ‘Š

If the game gets some positive feedback, I'm looking forward to adding more content! So far there is only one route which is Etsuji's. I plan on making more stuff possibly! Such as ...

โ€ข A route for Kumochi!

โ€ข  A route for Jikkanji!

โ€ข  A route for Gesshin!

โ€ข  A route for ... a new character, maybe?!

โ€ข More official endings?!

โ€ข Expanding story for side characters!

โ€ข Redoing sprites/CG because the art is kinda old ...

? SPOILERS ?

This game has a character named Etsuji, He's from my webcomic: There, There. This game contains spoilers for Etsuji's character arc, but if you're hardcore then play the game if you wish!

I LOVE KUMOCHI SO MUCH. I can't wait to see if he actually has a route. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I also really loved the humor of this game.

When I first found this game, I saw that it had a comedy tag and that it was free. So, I downloaded it right away... Without reading the description. So after a while of playing the game I realized the MC was male and I thought it was sweet how this story unfolded.

brooo this shi made me cry it's so fricking good. Take a moment to play this game, the good ending is so pure. I love the art and story and EVERYTHING. I hope they make more games if this is just a "shit post" then i would love to see them at their full potential

(1 edit)

I haven't made it to the end yet (it's taking awhile lol) but I'm very amused and entertained! Etsuji is freaking adorable, especially when blushing or Vanilla is on his shoulder. I love how rough and tough he acts, but when it comes to relationships he's super careful (asking how old you are, not wanting physical contact) and for a game that's basically crack XD, it's a nice touch. Can't wait to finish it, wish the other guys were available!

Awesome game.


Will there be a android version?

I loved it ! I first got the bad ending, then I spent 3 hours trying to find what I did wrong, and I was so happy to finally see the good ending !
I'll look forward to your next game now !

Well... I've played for like 3 hours and still couldn't finish the game. At first I only laughed whenever I got punched, but after 2 hours I was SO STRESSED! Still, it was really funny!!

I know the main character was male but I couldn't stop thinking it was female. You know, the cute high schooler girl that starts going out with delinquents, just like in the mangas.

Even if the name is Worst Dating Sim it was certainly one of the best I've ever played.

holy fuck. How can a game be SO STRESSFUL yet so hilarious? I stg I lost my shit whenever I got punched, it's the funniest thing and i ain't even mad. The amount of times I said "are you fucking kidding me" and "I swear to god" is staggering. But in the end, this is ironically one of the best visual novels I've ever played. 10/10 bara tiddies, bless your meme loving soul <333 

Laasst comment I swear. Finish the game, got the bad ending first, was disappointed, found what a did wrong, and said "god damnit".

Disappointing that there was no sex scene, but I guess that throws off the narrative. 

The Good Ending is a bit... unrealistic but I guess it's okay.

I enjoy the script writing too. It doesn't sound like typical fanfiction, such as when reading male character lines you can still tell it's a female "talking" if that makes sense.

(1 edit)

Definitely frustrating to go through the game over and over again. Helps me build perseverance I guess. I enjoy the story but I suggest giving a faster way to skip through dialogue than a small "skip" button in the corner. Really gives insight to gang violence issues. People who are not catered to in a one-way society are thrown out to fend for themselves and form gangs.

Edit: Can I date Mochi, too?

Just finished the game......and it was awesome!!! I mean it, I loved it (even tho my face hurts for all the punches I got) and it made me laughs. I hope to see more from you in the future, awesome job "bro".

(+1)

WOOHOO i just fnished it oh my god

it really lived up to its name but in a good way

The best 4 hours of this week,for sure. Everything is beautiful bro! The characters,the dialogue hhfff GREAT JOB MAN

Excited to see what's to come! Good luck on your everything!

Oh my gosh this game is so adorable. I've barely made it past the bro test but I'm already completely enthralled. Amazing game and the drawings are sweet!

ok that was like really  good i loved it thanks >>????!??!?? 

im glad! and thank you for following me on twitter! <3

My heart fluttered... Loved the chemistry between the two main characters. And Kumochi is such an interesting character... Loved it. However the save button was much missed. Please consider it, even though  it wasn't your intention including one. It made my experience of playing the game more stressful. Thank you for this experience anyway!

I was definitely not expecting this game to be as amazing as it is. The title is very misleading. The humor was perfect and actually made me laugh, which is a bit difficult to do, and it was a surprisingly sweet game for how many times I was punched. Thank you for creating this honest to god masterpiece.

im glad you liked it!! thank you so much for the support <3

Enjoyed this game alot, although the fact that when you messed up you had to replay the game from start (thank god for the skip option) was just a bit tiring (although it had a weird charm), the story was really fun and the characters were fucking amazing. Hope you make a route for ma  boi mochi. 

It was hilarious and surprisingly very sweet

Loved it a lot

I am in love, I didn't think I'd go through that kind of emotional rollercoaster while playing this, all the character are so adorable and I might've cried a lil bit-

im happy you like it, thank you!

Hi, I've played this a bit. I like it so far, and I can respect the fact that you don't want to include a save system. However, have you considered making the name be persistent so it doesn't have to be re-entered every time you fail and are forced to restart?

i do think adding the name system is unique, so i think i'll leave it, i apologize! and you can press enter if it is bugging you.

Im pretty interested on how this will all go in the future,but overall,really interesting concept :-D

I loved this game soo much!! <3 the story is fantastic and Etsuji is just frigging adorable ;-;  also, I'm obsessed with Gesshin's Eat Pant t-shirt at the end hahaha

I'm so looking forward to your next game ^^

loved it, also gave me good memory from having to remember all the answers to every question every time i got one wrong (all of them xD)

Hey, you should make an Android version!

Ayy, check this out: http://pridebrary.com/video-games/page/3/

The worst dating sim? ACTUALLY IT WAS THE BEST. 

How did you know i liked getting punched in the face and also i'm upset about the sex scene!

(ยฐใ…‚ยฐโ•ฌ)

Sorry if this is spam but itch.io has no way of sending PMs. :(

I'm from Soulsoft Electronic arts. ( https://soulsoftea.itch.io ) Sooo I'm thinking about hosting a Game Jam on itch.io. My idea is a bara game jam which I'll call "BARA JAM", and I'm trying to see how much interest there would be in such a jam, and if it would be worth hosting. Would this be something you'd be up to participate in or even co-host?

I'm thinking about having it in October and lasting 1 month.

I made a thread on LSF with more details here: https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=51373

I'm really trying to see if this is a viable jam that people would even want. I hope so! I'll obviously be submitting an entry as well. =) you can email me here soulsoftea@gmail.com

Just curious, do you have an estimated date for when you'll update the game?

ehh i really don't, i'm currently working on another visual novel at the moment so it would maybe be some time after i finish that game

Ohh, okay, I see. Well, I look forward to playing your new game once you finish :)

i mean.... its a homo erotic vn so idk if thats your cup of tea ahah

Eh, that's fine with homo erotic games as long as it makes sense in the context of the story (There're aren't enough gay games around anyway, so I'll gladly play any remotely "homo" game ^^)

(+1)

That was a great game. No, honestly, it was fantastic. Did not expect to actually like getting punched in the face so much??? I think I can no recite every answer that won't get me punched, off by heart. 

Surprisingly, my only issue isn't with restarting the game every time I get punched - I just sort of want a save sort of thing, because I don't have a lot of time to play games. This is obviously my persona issue, but I'm just saying this because I have to keep multiple tabs open if I want to do anything other than the game (I'm a busy person ha), and it really slows my already slow computer down.

 And if I keep the window open for more than a few hours, it tends to crash (through no fault of yours, of course - I have the worst computer in the world) and I'd lose all my data. Frustrating, lol, but I suppose that's the game - I don't mind starting over, it's fun! Just my personal problem there, I suppose. 

Also, the music is great (trash for persona kind of style music lolol). Just saying, I love the art and the music and pretty much everything about this game? From the meme references, random answers to questions, the love of c a t s, everything - and I'm pleasantly surprised that you plan to update it so much with more routes!!!

My only regret is that  1.I can't pay for this - I'm a broke chinese kid and itch.io is literally the only platform I can get good games on - But of all the games I've downloaded and played on here, WDS is (pretty ironically) my favourite! and 2. There isn't a sound effect for MRGRGR???? There totally should be one?? So you can process the fact that you have messed up and slam your face on the keyboard before Etsuji punches you again???? 

anyway thank you so much!! ( And I look forward to seeing more content from yu, dude, for a first game this is insanely good, you must have been working ridiculously hard on it before release) 

Regards, Zhou An (random and broke player)

I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH !!!!

The story is so good and also so emotional...But there is no save options so it's kinda hard to start over from the begging but the funny thing is I'm do it over and over again just to see the good ending AND there is no reason to say this is the worst dating sim... Is the BEST EVER DATING Sim ... I really really love this game xD

And the music is good too It's bring me back the memories when I'm played persona 4 xD

Can't wait for the next update ^^

(-1)

 Btw.... Am I only one who have this problem '-'?? Can I fix this??  How to fix it '-'??

it's a joke

oh okay xD 

I will wait for the next update ^^

I played this a while back, i think when i first getting into visual novels n games and ??? It's still one of my favourite games !!! It's so well done, the concept is simple but so engaging and just bjakdfsgvhb ??? The characters are just so amazingand it's so easy to completely fall in love with them and anyways i just rlly think this a god like game !!

thank u so much <333

Made an account just to comment that this is one of the best fucking game/visual novel i've ever played in quite a while 1230/10 for you thank you for making this wonderful game and it's not the "Worst" dating sim it's the greatest and it's not a "shitpost" it's a masterpiece!

aahh thank you thank you so much!! <333

No saves are the worst. Unexpected bad ends are the worst. This game is the worst and I could not stop myself until I finished it. Seriously entertaining story cleverly hidden behind annoying mechanics. I will be sure to keep an eye for any further games.

This is hilarious :) No save feature is frustrating, but otherwise... I mean, it's not even... I can believe I'm still playing! And I've started hours ago!

This game is really cool, I loved it! I'm definitely gonna check out the comic! ^^

Hi author, I am a foreigner with low English ability. I really LOVE this game , not only the art but also the fantastic dialogue! You must had lots of weed for writing this! But in spite of I have tried so many time and have spent lots of time on the dictionary, I still got bad end. What's  wrong with Etsuji!!?  I just want to have sex with this fucking sexy guy!   Is there any hints for getting good ending? Thanks for making this great game!

(1 edit)

AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I saw your hint somewhere and finally finished the game! Thank you so much! But I still can't fuck with Etsuji! AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
