Love in the Age of 8-bit

8-bit Girlfriend
Without question, 8-bit Girlfriend is the oddest game I’ve come across while slurping coffee and catching up on emails from the weekend. Released to the 360 marketplace’s indie section on Sunday, the game is based off a web comic I’ve just seen for the first time, which you can check out over here.

Billed as a comedy-dating simulator, players step into the armor of a “retro knight” and from there on in attempt to court four “retro beauties” – picking through responses to dialogue in order to win either the Princess, Elf, Thief, or Item Shop Girl.

Keep in mind this could be the worst investment of 80 MS Pts ever, but it’s definitely unique enough to warrant a mention.
