Love, or finding the one person that feels just right, is complicated and exciting at the same time. Most of us can probably attest to this, although certainly none of us can match Stella’s experience:
She has a crush on a nerdy fairy, a sensitive Sasquatch and a bold but kind-hearted raptor all at the same time. If this selection of love interests alone isn’t enough for you, we should also mention that Raptor Boyfriend is also a nostalgic trip to the 90s.
An unforgettable last year of school
As we have already revealed, the visual novel revolves around the protagonist Stella. She is not characterized by the greatest social skills, but is rather clumsy. At the beginning of the game we witness her return to her old high school, which she left behind for a few years. Now she’s back for her final year in an unusual little town.
There, the teenager, who was previously an outsider determined by fears, awaits a community of so-called cryptids, i.e. all sorts of mythical creatures and unusual figures. And in the midst of them, the protagonist wants to have a better year, make friends and fall in love. In fact, on her first day, bisexual Stella meets three people who make her heart beat faster.
Getting to know the three love interests better and strengthening relationships with them is one of our main tasks in the game. The choices we make—like who we call after school for a long chat—or what we say dictate who Stella takes the next step with. We also deal with the normal high school madness.
And yes: kisses and slumber parties are features of the game. You can also collect collectibles as the story progresses. In a nostalgic 90s story, of course, cassettes should not be missing. As for the tone of the story, we get a mix of sensitive teen drama and wacky satire.
Here are more game ideas:
These are the main characters of the story
The Fee Day is a nerd, an artist and loves to read detective stories. Her ghost ex, with whom Day still has a difficult relationship, isn’t exactly kind to Stella. Taylor the Sasquatch is Stella’s former childhood friend who has changed and experienced a lot since they last met. He also plays guitar and brings band drama instead of ex-drama.
Robert, the raptor the game is named after, is daring and funny. He is the sunshine of the squad and loves motocross.
By the way, our protagonist is definitely queer: If you choose to be Robert or Taylor in the storyline, Stella is still not straight. Your bisexuality is in fact discussed in conversations about the past. In addition, it becomes clear one way or another that she has fallen in love with all three people.
Raptor Boyfriend is already on July 15, 2021 for PC published and is now published on December 15, 2022 for all major consoles.
