What's It's Like To Date A "Jurassic Park" Dinosaur

You'll never really know, but this is the next best thing. "Jurassic Heart" is a dating sim that explores the love between a girl and her Tyrannosaurus rex classmate.

If you've never played a dating sim, you're missing out. These are simple text-based games in which you make a series of choices with different results — think Choose Your Own Adventure with anime style. "Jurassic Heart" is a fairly straightforward entry into the genre ... except that the object of your affection is a T. Rex named Taira-kun.

The story begins with you in your bedroom.

Your first date with Taira-kun is to buy a ukulele. We'll get into why later. For now, just accept that this is a reasonable outing for you and your dinosaur crush.

And it leads to your next choice.

Taira-kun feels bad about you paying for the ukulele and wants to get it on his own. I suggested we split it, because that's the sensible thing to do, and I'm really good at dating.

I think we're flirting.

If you suggest splitting the ukulele, you go on to say you can share it. But because you can't play the ukulele, you'll have to sing. Cuuute. If I were making this into a movie, I'd cast Zooey Deschanel in both roles.
