How To Date A Magical Girl ☆ Interactive Dating Sim!

AU$ 5,154

Imagine if you had the opportunity to attend class at an elite academy for magical girls... Do you think you'd take the opportunity to make new friends? Learn magic? Or... Would you try and date a cute magical girl?

CAUTION: All is not as it seems in this game. Be warned that you will encounter dark and confronting themes within...

This game is intended for audiences aged 15 and over. It contains adult themes, sexual themes and some violence.

We are happy to announce that you've been accepted into the academy! We only accept the finest students that display magical potential. Although you show only a pathetic amount of magical talent, we'll make an exception for you... Just this once!

As long as you study hard and keep your grades up, you'll be free to spend your time roaming around campus, chatting to new people and exploring the nearby town.

If you use your time wisely, you may just find true love...!

How To Date A Magical Girl! is a brand new dating sim game for PC and MAC. In dating sims, you take the role of the main character and have the freedom to choose how you spend each day.

You can attend class, make friends, explore new places or focus on raising your personal attributes. Whatever you do, you'll have the opportunity to meet a cast of cute girls.

Chat to the girls you like, and find out what their interests are. If you strike up conversation enough times, girls will begin to warm up to you.

You'll find that some girls will only be interested in you if your personal attributes meet their requirements. Miyu may not talk to you if your grades are low... And Yui won't give you the time of day if you're a scaredy-cat! Work on improving your personal attributes in order to capture the heart of the girls you like.

Each character in the game has their own schedule. For example, on Wednesday morning, you might find Rei at the pool. On Thursday afternoon, you could find Kaori at the mall.

The weather also plays an effect on the character's schedules! Visit places on rainy or sunny days and you might be pleasantly surprised.  

Give the girls you like special gifts in order to increase their affection towards you! But, be warned: you might have to work pretty hard to obtain gifts that the girls actually like! Using the game's alchemy system, you can collect recipes and ingredients to craft items that might make great gifts.

Play your cards right, pursue the girl of your dreams, and ultimately try to win her heart!
