Dream Club (ドリームクラブ or Dream C Club Dorīmu Kurabu?) is a dating sim video game developed by Tamsoft and published by D3 Publisher for the Xbox 360, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 3. The game was released on August 27, 2009.
The player's goal of the game is to achieve a happy ending 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 the player simply selects one work option from among two to four, after which the result of player's 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 player's choice, trying to raise her level of affection for the player 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 the player times button presses along with the music, as commonly done in music games. Player's performance over repeated visits determines whether player will achieve a happy ending with a particular hostess, or is left lonesome and unable to return to the club again due to expired membership or triggered a certain event that causes both of the player to remain as friends only rather than lovers.
The October issue of Comic Rush, sold August 26, started publishing the first manga version of Dream C Club, called Dream Club Destiny and drawn by 888. Another manga adaptation, named Dream C Club: Dear Girls started serializing on Famitsu Comic Clear on May 15, 2010.
A sequel to the game, titled Dream Club Zero, was released on January 27, 2011. The game features three new hostesses, such as Haruka, a rich girl, Nonono, who comes from the future, and Asuka, a professional beach volleyball player. The game is rated D by CERO, due to featuring more sexual themes than in the first game, such as erotic eating.
