Coming Out on Top is a gay dating sim with a little bit of visual novel sprinkled on top. The funny thing about this game is that it is in fact…. Very funny. It is impossible not to like the guys in the game and the developers have actually created a very charming, funny and witty dating sim here.
While I would say that Coming Out on Top is a comedy, the fact of the matter is that it actually deals with a very real situation. The main character is called, Mark and he has just come out as gay to his two roommates and friends. He is just about to start his final year of college and he decides that the time is now to get out there and see if he can find the right guy for him.
The Writing, It Is All About The Writing
Mark (you can actually change his name) is such a likable character and the way he and the rest of the people in the game communicate with each other is great. It is so very well written and of course, you like some characters more than others, but that is what a dating sim is all about.
Pick A Guy
As Mark tries to find who is the right guy for him he will go on many different dates. There six main dates that Mark can go on, but there are also many other dates and even a hidden date that he can go on. These can often be very funny and amusing, but you will also find some that you really click with. The game will push the story in the direction of the character that you are getting on with best. Of course, there is some gay sex in here so that does make the game not ideal if you are at work!
Wait There Is More
As well as dating other dudes, Mark also can make his relationship with his roommates stronger and also study as well as work so that he can make some money. These may not sound like the most interesting elements, but again the writing that accompanies them is great so it is actually a lot of fun. Speaking of fun, we have to talk about the fish…. Yes, a fish. Mark has a pet fish that he confides in and this is some of the best stuff in the game. I literally found myself laughing out loud at these parts of the game.
There are plenty of guys in the game and one thing that you can do is play around with their body hair. To be honest with you this was not something I got into, but I can see why some people would have fun with it.
Coming Out on Top is a very fun dating sim. It is one of the more interesting and fun takes on the gay dating scene. It does everything with a sense of humor, but there is also some heart in here too. If you enjoy dating sims and are looking for something that is a bit different, check out Coming Out on Top.
