What becomes of the broken hearted?

Indie games are not something we often cover on Console Monster, there are dozens of them released every week, often with little in the way of fanfare. This title though, based on the webcomic hosted at www.8bitgf.com, caught our eye.

It’s a well-known fact that every gamer is male, lonely and single. 8-bit girlfriend therefore sits perfectly as a cheap 80 MSPs alternative for all your female support.

This comedy dating game introduces a retro knight called ‘Sir Knight’ who is out to court four fantasy maidens consisting of an elf, princess, item shop girl and thief. The makers claim that it’s “Probably the closest you can get to dating Princess Peach this side of your 360.” That can’t be a bad thing.

It’s available now, but you’ll have to provide your own box of man-sized tissues.


Marty Greenwell

Marty has been gaming since the heady years of the ZX-81 and still owns most of the gaming systems purchased since those days, including the Atari 2600, ZX Spectrum, SNES, Jaguar, Dreamcast and GameCube. Being a collection junkie (or more accurately, hoarder), he buys more games than he can possibly play, far too many of which are still sealed in their packaging. Marty favours RPGs and Driving games when it comes to genres, and is possibly a little bit too addicted to Disgaea. When not gaming he’s out frightening OAPs on his motorcycle, clad in black leather.
