Inspired by the idea that 'girls are not machines that you put kindness coins into until sex falls out', Kindness Coins examines the typical 'dating sim' formula of choosing the 'correct' actions, lines of dialogue, or gifts and repeating these until the subject of your affections agrees to sleep with you. This game also explores the process of understanding and accepting your sexuality, and the eternally awkward process of trying to ask out your crush.
