Romantic MMO dating sim goes global

Dating sims are supposed to be played by yourself, preferably in your room, where you can properly reflect upon your secret shame in private. But Feel Online is a different kind of dating sim that has you attempting to woo other players around the world. The Korean online game has recently launched its global service, which means that westerners can try the romantic MMO for the first time.

In addition to offering otaku around the world a chance to meet their cel-shaded soul mate, developer ANGames says “the user also can experience the feeling as NPC.” Since the game is designed with the goal of hooking users up, ANGames also points out that Feel Online includes safeguard functions since “it is highly likely that there may be some unpleasant happenings among users.” These anti-creep abilities include the ‘hiding’ function and the ‘ending friendship’ function to prevent repeat run-ins with anyone you find offensive.

So there you have it! If you’ve ever wanted to feel like an NPC in a dating sim, now’s your chance. Just remember to take advantage of the ‘ending friendship’ command if you run into any lemons. You can explore the bizarre free-to-play world of Feel Online by visiting its new global site.

    MY GOODNESS, FINALLY. This could be one of the greatest trolling opportunities in a long time. I really like the video where the Korean spoke to me phonetically.

    I foresee players just wanting to get laid. Just like Second Life, full of horny little boys.

    I'd rather not feel online thanks. I'm not sure what that even means.

    I am... amused. I suspect a 4chan bomb on this thing at some point.
