Hayate no Gotoku! or more easily remembered/understood as Hayate the Combat Butler! is a manga about a rich girl and her overprotective butler. One thing that stands out about HnG is its off-kilter humor, relentless 4th wall-breaking, and liberal knack for parodying/referencing anything you can think of in contemporary media/pop culture. While the manga focuses on these things plus Hayate's relationship with various girls in the cast, my game focuses more on the rapid-fire, non sequitur gag/parody-fest that made the first season of the anime adaptation such a hit. The relationship aspect of the series is also maintained in my affection system of the game.

While a fan-game at heart, I try to cater towards anyone who enjoys JRPGs and video games in general. The main focus of the game is, of course, humor, and a lot of elaboration has been put forth in order to make fun of some of the most prevalent conventions in modern as well as classic video games.
