There's so much to unpack here, so I would advise you to check out this game for yourself and see how a high schooler can fall for the teenage T-rex.
Oddly enough, this alpaca sounds extremely similar to his beloved Yukari. Okay, I'm going to stop talking right now before things get any weirder.
Even though she's now in an alpaca form, she is still a high school student, so you as the player, have to help her navigate a normal school life while in this absurd form. Honestly, boys these days are so disappointing that I might as well go for my local office printer. This really takes the whole "office romance" idea to a whole new level that nobody wanted to go to.
That's all fine and dandy until you take a look at the artwork, which looks like the kind of thing you posted on when you were 10 years old (more notably the chins).
The two were on their way back from visiting the Alpaca Kingdom, where Kazuma falls asleep, only to wake up and find an alpaca sitting next to him instead of his girlfriend.
The way the game ends relies solely on what you say about his face, all while looking at that awful picture of his face.
If you want to witness the WTF-ness of this game, just head over to that never got released.

See for yourself: This is literally my favorite dating game of all time, and if you were on Tumblr anytime in 2012, you know what this game is, too.
