Relive your awkward teenage phase in LoveSick Darlings 💞
When Syd moves into Foster Hills at the start of the year, he has difficulty making friends at his new high school. Luckily, a girl living next door named Maisy takes him under her wings. Over time Syd becomes integrated into Maisy's group of friends at their school. 🏫
As the school year comes to an end, Syd's friends start pressuring him into asking his crush out to the formal held at the end of the year. He's worried that he won't be able to do it. 🙈
How will his friendships be affected when one of his friends sees him as more than just a friend? It's up to you to make these hard decisions and deal with the consequences for Syd and those around him.
LoveSick Darlings is a counter-traditional dating sim. Unlike in most other games in the genre, you won't be able to get away with pulling someone's heart strings without affecting those around them. Characters will comment on your relationships with others and you need to think about how they are perceived within their circle of friends. Basically: what if the characters had agency? 😱
