Lack Of Love is a strange “evolutionary life simulator” released in Japan only exclusively on the Sega Dreamcast in November 2000.
You basically take a small ‘blob’ on a 3D survival trip and evolve into a slightly bigger blob. Ultimately with a view to becoming the biggest blob on the block, so that you can eat everybody else.
Lack of Love was developed by Love-de-Lic, published by ASCII Entertainment, with music by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Unsurprisingly, the game sold poorly at Japanese retail. Still an interesting game though!
