With social media and the streaming lifestyle becoming increasingly prevalent in our day-to-day lives, contemporary adventure games might need to change their narratives in the near future. That’s where NEEDY GIRL OVERDOSE comes in – a game where you have to help your beloved streamer girlfriend reach the top of the streaming world.
The mixture of contemporary and retro-tech aesthetics is quite pleasing, and the game’s plot is gripping enough to keep your interest for a while. Just how good is NEEDY GIRL OVERDOSE as a dating sim, an adventure game, and as a manager simulator? Let’s find out.
One thing that immediately catches the eye about the game is its distinctive visual style. Despite it having to do with streamers and the modern internet economy as a whole, NEEDY GIRL OVERDOSE features a retro style that looks more like you’re using a Windows 98 PC.
You play as a “P-Chan,” Ame-chan’s producer. Ame-chan is the alter ego of OMGkawaiiAngel-chan, a streamer that’s just starting her career. As her producer, you’ll need to keep tabs on how your streamer girlfriend is doing online, interact with her fans, and give her pointers to improve her online persona.
The game is a “cleaner” version of HunieCam Studio, as there’s no risque content to be seen here. Instead, this is more like a point-and-click adventure with multiple endings, depending on how you treat Ame-chan during your playthrough.
Your role as a streamer’s producer is a tough one, and you’ll have to deal with some nasty things on Ame-chan’s path to stardom. During each streaming session, Ame-chan will get new followers that she can get money out of. These “simps” must be kept in check, though, as they will sometimes send long rants about Ame-chan.
However, you’re not just a manager: you’re also Ame-chan’s significant other. As such, you must take care of taking some time between streaming sessions to bond with her, taking her on dates, and even setting up dates for her with other people. Keep checking her mental health, as the amount of stress of being a streamer can cause her to have a mental breakdown the moment you least expect it.
It’s certainly impressive how clean the overall plot is. There are no explicit references to illicit substances or naughty scenes to be found here. If you’re looking for “that” kind of game, HuniePop might be more up your alley.
Depending on Ame-chan’s mental health and her popularity, players will receive a different ending, reflecting how well they did during their playthrough. As wholesome as the game might be, some of the endings can be honestly gut-wrenching: a testament to the dangers of the modern streamer lifestyle.
NEEDY GIRL OVERDOSE might be the world’s most complex Tamagotchi: the number of things you have to keep track of can be daunting at first, but it quickly becomes second nature once you grow used to the game. The stylish and clean presentation also helps a great deal with this, as every menu and option is presented in an easy-to-understand manner.
NEEDY GIRL OVERDOSE is a great dating sim and an even better manager simulator. With its unique presentation and possibly wholesome story, there’s a lot to see here for fans of classic adventure games.
