This page is here for the purpose of collecting random games that are in relevant subgenres for the community, but that we haven't really looked at yet. Consider diving in when bored and fishing around.

Unless stated otherwise, assume dating sim.

For a PSX games I'm generally linking to psxdatacenter.com. It has some broken English but actually is a rare source of English info on what obscure JP-only PSX games actually played like, although not too in-depth. --DistractedMOSFET

  • Yuuwaku Office Renaika PSX, office workplace setting. Not much information in English out there it seems, beyond that PSX data center page. It gets a mention in Issue 85 of The Playstation magazine

  • Noël: Not Digital and Noël La Neige PSX. There is a third game but it seems like romance-oriented and more FMV adventure. Some mentions appear in these mags: 123

  • "Kimi no kimochi, Boku no kokoro" PSX, Sorcery? Highschool.

  • Eternal Melody PSX. RPG with Dating sim elements. Pick 3 girls from a cast of 12 to go on your adventure with? Isekai.

  • Endless Season - Anoko doko noko PSX. Dating sim board game. Features a competitive multiplayer mode?!

  • Eberouge, Eberouge Special - Koi to Mahou no Gakuen Seikatsu, and Eberouge 2 Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Macintosh (according to the JP wikipedia page), PSX, Saturn. Magical school? Actually has a short english wikipedia page Short Saturn Trailer

  • "Boys Be...", and "Boys Be... 2nd Season" PSX. Based on a manga that also has an anime adaption.

  • "Aitakute... Your smiles in my heart" PSX. [Art is awful --DistractedMOSFET]. 4 discs?! Appears in this issue of Playstation magazine

  • Renai Kouza Real Age PSX. Uncommon art style for a game. Seems to feature adults?

  • Taisen Renai Simulation - Trifels Mahou Gakuen PSX. Seems to be very young cast. Has a 2 player mode apparently?

  • Daisuki Saturn. Set in a military flight academy?

  • "Kiss yori..." Apparently about trying to "seduce as many girls as possible". The company that made this, amoungst other Bishoujo games, also made the Pepsiman game, which is hilarious. Appears to have a Wonderswan port for those interested in JP-only handhelds.

  • Ruriino No Yuki Saturn, PC98. Slightly more VN than dating sim, but according to mobygames:

    Though certain events will occur regardless of the player's actions, much of the plot is determined by decisions taken by the player, which may include locations to visit or actions to choose when prompted. The game has an internal clock, with each visit to a location occupying a fixed segment of time. The player can also choose to advance the clock in most cases.

  • Sentimental Graffiti PSX, Saturn, Windows, PS3, PSP, Vita.

  • Love Songs and Love Songs: Idol ga Classmate PS2. Idol. The first one was part of D3Publisher's low-budget but apparently surprisingly good "Simple 2000" line of games that were usually made on short times, for low prices, and could get a bit experimental. Seems they were happy enough with it to make additional games outside the line, such as Idol ga Classmate. Seems they also made a VN later.

  • Gokujou Seitokai PS2. Pretty gross premise: "Based on the manga/anime series, Gokujou Seitokai is a love sim where you play as a teacher in training at a high school. Over a the course of three weeks, you'll get experience individually teaching the sixteen students, all of whom happen to be girls, each of whom is a star of the anime series." Konami again.

  • Meine Liebe GBA for the first one and then two PS2 sequels. Konami again. Of course the psxdatacenter has some info

  • Meshimase Roman Sabou PS2. Unlike most of the games in this list it's Otome. Run a sweet shop with apparently hundreds of possible candies to make. Six romanceable dudes. Part of the Simple 2000 series.

  • Fantastic Fortune and Fantastic Fortune 2 PS1 and PS2. Medieval Fantasy. Otome. More raising games than dating sims from what I can tell.

  • Pocket Love if Neo Geo Pocket Color. Kinda cute aesthetic?

  • "AKB1/48: Idol to Koishitara...", "AKB1/48: Idol to Guam de Koishitara...", and AKB1/149 Ren'ai Sousenkyo PSP. Idol dating sims but seemingly about real idols and uses their actual photos? Kinda weird. Seems very light on mechanics.

  • StormLover and "StormLover Kai!!" PSP. Otome dating sims that sound relatively standard affair, but notably you get with your dude half way through the game and then have to maintain the relationship. Published by D3Publisher, who did the Simple series which is mentioned a few times on this list. Kai has an english fan tl!

  • PhotoKano PSP. Dating Sim with a strong photography theme. Co-developed by Entertain, who also made KimiKiss and Amagami. However there is apparently no staff overlap other than having the same producer as KimiKiss.

  • Last Escort series. PS2/PSP (depends on game). Otome host-club themed dating sims from D3Publisher again.

  • PhotoGenic PC-98/PSX/Sega Saturn. (Sorry for the JP wikipedia link I was struggling to find any english links for this game!) Another dating sim with a photography aspect. You should be warned that many PC-98 games are pornographic, but I can't confirm if this game specifically is. The PSX and Sega Saturn versions should be reasonably clean though.

  • Prince of Tennis: Sweet and Tears PSX. A Konami tennis-player raising sim. That seems quite influenced by Tokimemo. Adapted from a manga apparently.

  • Dream Club 360/PS3/PSP. Hostess themed. From D3Publisher again.

  • Hoshi no Oujo, Hoshi no Oujo 2, Hoshi no Oujo 3. Windows. Otome. R18. Apparently the first game was the first R18 Otome game, according to JP wikipedia.

  • The Renai Horror Adventure: Hyōryū Shōjo PS2. D3Publisher's Simple series offers a truly weird outing with this one. A survivalist horror game where you need to manage search parties and ration resources at the risk of character death, but still has at least some relationship mechanics. The PC gets with whatever character they are closest to at the end of the game.

  • "Itsuka, Kasanariau Ashita e" PSX. Sci-fi military academy raising sim that comes on two discs, each disc being the choice of protagonist (or perhaps just gender?) Has romance elements, including apparently options for same-sex romance.

  • "Angel Graffiti ~Anata e no Profile~" PSX/Saturn. Seems like a fairly straight forward "Tokimemo-clone". With an angel girl as the helper instead of your creepy classmate.

  • Birth Days PC98. R18 dating sim. PC98 aesthetic through the roof.

  • "Welcome to Pia Carrot!!" PC98/PCFX/Windows/Saturn. R18 (except for the saturn version presumbly). There's a fan TL for the PCFX version.

  • Fuuraiki series "Travel Game" series with optional (but well-developed) romantic subplots.

  • Memories ~Shiroi Yozora ni Mau Tenshi~ PC98. Windows. A dating sim with very light emphasis on "sim". Has a particular manga aesthetic that may appeal strongly to some. VNDB claims the game has sexual content but lacks specifics and mobygames doesn't seem to suggest the game does? It wouldn't be unusual for a PC98 game to have R18 content. But it would be sort of weird for none of the sexual content in a PC98 game to be documented on mobygames.

  • Kita E Dreamcast/PS2. A dating sim series set in the northern japanese island of Hokkaidou, starting on the Dreamcast before transitioning to the PS2. Developed by Red Entertainment (aka Red Company) who seemingly are no strangers to games with social elements, having co-developed most of the main Sakura Wars games, co-developed Konami's Tokimemo-variant Mitsumete Knight, developed JRPG-with-some-dating Thousand Arms. The gameplay is apparently simulation-light, following a Doukyuusei-style "pick where you go and events will fire" design, but is apparently mini-game heavy and seemingly has a lot to do. The third game features an unconventional dialogue system design: "conversations may go off in tangents (as they do in real-life) if the player interjects when keywords are spoken by the girl. New conversations may then lead to alternate events which draw the couple closer together or at least more congenial towards each other." Here's a blog post about the first game

  • Comic Party Windows/Dreamcast/PSP. Developed by famous VN studio Leaf. In Comic Party you play a character who has decided to make some doujinshi for next year's "Comic Party" a fictional Comiket-inspired event. You control their schedule, deciding how they spend their time on manga creation but also, time they spend socializing with girls. So yeah, balancing doujinshi creation with romance pursuit. Original Windows release is R18, DC release takes the R18 content out and a Windows re-release called "Comic Party DCE" seems to be porting the DC version back to Windows so is also not R18. Was released on PSP later.

  • Typing of the Date Dreamcast. A typing game, where you type to select dialogue options to woo girls. Doesn't seem too interesting but the name is a very amusing "Typing of the Dead" reference.

  • "Getter Love!!" N64. A party game a la Mario Party but with a dating theme. The winner is the first person to successfully get a girlfriend. So another one of these multiplayer dating sims.

  • Nana PS2. Based on manga of the same name. Developed by Konami.
