[Review] Egykoi --- dating sim for women that fall in love with ancient Egyptian gods

Japan has every kinds of dating sims, but this EgyKoi is eccentric in them most. Because all characters except the heroine are ancient Egyptian gods. This is the funny-surreal-comedy mobile game that Japanese mobile game developer Goodia released last month. players control the heroine and choose to pursue Anubis, Horus, or Medjed.  Each of the three gods are wearing  Japanese school uniforms despite their respective animal heads.

At first, the heroine meets a upper-class student Anubis in a new school term. He is a son of the doctors, excellent student, chairperson of student in charge of discipline, and healthcare Staff of his class. Why is he such a setting? Please check Anubis in Wikipedia.

Transfer student Horus came over to the heroine's class. Originally he was her childhood friend, but has been leaving the town on account of the work of parents for a long time.

The heroine went to the gardening club where she belonged to in after school. The leader of gardening club is Osiris, but unfortunately cannot fall in love with him. By the way, there is a mysterious student behind him...

He is Medjed. He is expressionless and taciturn. He is always with Osiris for some reason and cautious of people approaching him. In addition, his special abilities are to fly and give beam from eyes.

The heroine made friends with a cute girl student. However, she is also an ancient Egyptian goddess. Please pay attention to her head. Her name is Bastet, the goddess of the cats.

The heroine enjoyed athletic festival with them...

Enjoyed the forest school(a training in school education in which students lodge together)...

Went for the summer festival of the shrine together in summer vacation...

Opened gender bender cafe in an annual school festival...

In this way, the heroine brings up love with three gods while enjoying annual events of the Japanese high school. Choices appear in each place of the story, and a story diverges by the choice. Because this is dating sim of the multi-ending type, we do not know what happens to the heroine until the last.

However, there is an important point. The heroine is murdered by Medjed when we get a wrong choice. Because he is "the Smiter"(Check Wikipedia). It is the worst bad ending.

We can see more funny artworks in official Twitter account of this. The downloading of application is free(iOS/Android).

A new character appears at random when we win a battle. Who is she? Her surname is Saitō...

In addition, we can meet characters secretly in ryotei(料亭), the traditional Japanese restaurant, and present various things to them. When we perform them several times, we can gradually make friends with them. It is a really ironical function :)

This is Bishōjo(beautiful girl) game for Experts class. The tower defense game to get close to Japanese Prime Ministers(At present, it is only men) is unprecedented.
