Take care of a “useless” guy you picked up and cultivate him into an ikemen (handsome guy). Love simulation game for women! Multiple endings prepared. Your choices will change his future! What kind of fate awaits? Happiness or ruin? A wondrous/strange experience of living together begins…
If you try to translate ヒモ男 with online translators, you’ll get “pimp” lol~ but that’s not “himo-otoko” means. I did some research and it seems to refer to a man who is being “kept”, like for example, he is being supported by someone else, living expenses paid for, kind of like a leech living off you ^^;; but he is not necessary a pimp (since a pimp exclusively lives off prostitutes :P) or gigolo cos in the game it isn’t clear he is actually sleeping with you or just playing console games everyday and making a mess around your house. Anyway the premise of the story is this…
You’re feeling tired working way beyond office hours everyday… one rainy day you bump into a man in messy hair and dirty clothes, sitting by the roadside, drenched without an umbrella. You normally wouldn’t approach someone like this but for some reason, you can’t look away. He said he has nowhere to go and you said “Would you like to come to my house?” And thus a wondrous/strange experience of living together begins…
Your tamagochi guy: Kanzaki Yuuto 神崎ユウと
Voice actor: Takumi Yasuaki, 内匠靖明.
On the left shows how he looks like in the beginning… so messy and like L from Death Note and so full of potential ikemen-ness lol~ See right screen cap after the first transformation. You are supposed to collect Care-taking points so that he can go into the next level of transformation. And that is done by swiping all the trash into the box at the top. Each type of trash is worth different points. You’ll unlock more types as he transforms. The better mood he is in, the higher the points each trash is worth. The only way to make his mood better is by chatting with him. A quick tip to recharge the chat quickly is run a VPN to change your IP to Japan before starting the app. It’ll allow you to watch game ad videos for full-recharge, up to 6 times a day.
Depending on your answers, you’ll make his mood become good or bad. And you also get a different transformation as the story progresses. In the beginning, you’ll also be presented with choices of clothes you select for him (Refreshing/Cool), how you like his hair to be (Tied/short/long) and whether you find him (Cute/Cool/etc). This will also contribute to the type you get too.
Album page: Growth Diary. You’ll see the boys you collected. Tap on the boy to see his details. It’ll give you a hint on how to answer the questions if you want to ace his Good mood every time or piss him off on purpose. You can also listen to the voice too. The voice actor did a great job voicing different guy types.
Album: Items of Memories. You can read more about the trash that he creates and find out more about it lol~
Setting and Share/screencap page. You can share about the app on Facebook or Twitter once a day to launch the FEVER mode. He will create lots of trash very quickly so that you can get more care-taking points.
I love to keep disturbing him while he is in a bad mood to see funny things he says! XD
At the end of the game you’ll be rewarded with a story and illustration CG of the boy you cultivated :D I got a doctor in my first try. Who did you get?
Also, the maker is promising to add more guy types to the game. Looking forward to it! XD
