From Press Release:
Love is in the air at PAX West 2022, where independent horror publisher and production company DreadXP released the first trailer for Sucker for Love: Date to Die For, the sequel to Lovecraftian dating simulator, Sucker for Love: First Date.
Released in January 2022, Sucker for Love: First Date puts the “love” back into “Lovecraftian horror,” tasking players with conducting occult rituals in order to win the affection of an Eldritch goddess. This subversive and bizarre take on the visual novel dating genre was created by independent game developer Joseph “Akabaka” Hunter, who contributed the original Sucker for Love concept game to DreadXP’s horror anthology game Dread X Collection 2.
Sucker for Love: Date to Die For introduces a new protagonist, new abominable love interests, new occult rituals, and a whole lot of heartache. Prepare for more scary smooches when Sucker for Love: Second Date releases later this year.
Here’s what critics have said about Sucker for Love: First Date:

“[O]ne of the most interesting takes on a love story in a long time.” – Bloody Disgusting
