Dream Club (ドリームクラブ) is a dating sim video game developed and published by D3 Publisher for the Xbox 360. The game is basically a Japanese hostess game where the player gets drunk with the hostess while trying to gain her favor. The game was released on August 27, 2009.
The goal of the game is to achieve a "happy ending" (not as sordid as it sounds) with a hostess working at the club by repeatedly visiting her there and eventually winning her heart. Visiting the club costs money which is raised by doing part-time jobs which are performed by simply selecting one work option from among two to four, after which the result of your work is immediately displayed and money is collected. Money is spent on club entrance, drinks purchased there for both the player and a selected hostess, and on gifts for hostesses. The majority of the game is spent at the club one-on-one with a hostess of your choice, trying to raise her level of affection for you by answering her questions in a favorable way, giving her desired presents, and scoring high on mini-games which include karaoke performances by the hostesses during which you time button presses along with the music, as commonly done in music games. Your performance over repeated visits determines whether you will achieve a happy ending with a particular hostess, or are left lonesome and unable to return to the club again due to expired membership or triggered a certain event that causes both of you to remain as friends only rather than lovers.
The protagonist is the main character of Dream C Club. The player controls him.
