These video games allow the user to try to make the "Sim" couple meet, go on dates, and eventually fall in love.
People who have played other simulation games will have no problem figuring out how to work with romance simulation games.
While contemporary in style and plot similar to Western rom-coms, the apps reflect a lot of Japanese culture, particularly the often uneven gender roles in Japanese society, and can be quite an eye-opener to the East.
Voltage has 60 apps under its belt, with only a third of the titles translated into English smartphone apps since 2011.
Some of the other titles are social games played on Japanese social media platforms specially focused on games like Mobage, and the app developer says that one in five women in Japan have played a dating simulator at least once.
It was only a matter of time before the popularity of both simulation games and online dating merged into the creation of romance simulation games.
Outside Japan, Voltage apps are most popular with users in North America and English-speaking countries in Southeast Asia, and there is even a Voltage Wiki devoted to explaining the games.During the game, the user can choose how the protagonist responds, which affects the outcome of the game."We began distributing our first dating sim title 'My lover is the No.1 Host' in December 2006.Up until then we'd been making battle simulation games aimed at men and lyric and song ringtone websites, but the reception we got [was so positive] that we gradually started to specialise in dating sims," said a Voltage spokesperson."Dating simulation games came about in Japan during the late 1980s in PC games aimed towards boys and men.Once a Sim is labeled a Romance Sim, it wants to play, date and flirt.Note that this Sim wants a life of romance but does not want to settle down and get married. To fulfill this Sim's goal in life, the user makes it have a first kiss, find other Sims to hook up with and gain aspiration rewards, such as the Love Tub, to help it keep conquests interested.
