‘Dead by Daylight’ Dating Sim, ‘Hooked on You’ Lets Fans Romance Horror Villains

Have you ever, in all your years of running away from horror villains in Dead by Daylight, thought “hm, this is kinda sexy?” No? Just us? Well, that’s about to change.

Behaviour Interactive recently announced that they’re releasing a new dating sim titled Hooked on You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim that will allow fans of the game to romance and seduce their favourite horror villains.

The dating sim will star four familiar Dead by Daylight killers – The Huntress, The Spirit, The Trapper, and The Wraith – and will feature romance, steamy references and… shirtless outfits.

Like most dating shows and sims, Hooked on You is set on a magical land called Murderer’s Island and users can nuzzle up to and romance these villains, become platonic friends or suffer the unyielding fate of situationships. The game has multiple unique endings so if you play your cards right, you’ll unearth deeply intimate facets of the hard-to-read personalities.

Pursuing Dead by Daylight‘s fiercest killers for a potential love connection sounds ridiculous, but according to Mathieu Côté, Head of Partnerships for Behaviour Interactive, this is exactly what fans wanted.

Côté had run a survey asking players if there was any other type of experience within the world of the game that players were interested in and as it turns out, a dating sim was the top choice.

“Because it is so completely out there and crazy, we thought we had to do it immediately,” said Côté. “We’ve known for years of our fans’ thirst and some of the more intense fanfic that was created. We want to give them what they want but we also need to present this the right way, with all the seriousness it deserves.”

Hooked on You is developed in collaboration with Psyop, the folks who made KFC’s Colonel Sanders hot and sexy in their dating sim I Love You, Colonel Sanders!, and will launch this Summer. For more, check out Hooked on You: A Dead by Daylight Dating Sim‘s official website.
