GOTY contender cat dating simulator Purrfect Date is available now on Steam.
Published by Bossa Studios (I Am Bread, Surgeon Simulator), Purrfect Date mixes dark British comedy influences with (decidedly furry) dating sim mechanics. Throughout the six main chapters, the player adopts the role of several freshly employed research assistants on an island almost entirely populated by cats and is tasked with uncovering the location’s shady history.
"They said we could make a game about anything," says the game's creator Oliver Hindle. So we made a game about humans dating cats.
Full of twists and turns, Purrfect Date is a truly unique concoction and rewards replays with multiple paths for the player to chose, and 18 different endings available.
Throughout the game’s seven chapters, you’ll adopt the roles of multiple freshly employed research assistants on an island almost entirely populated by cats. Choose your own adventure as you romance talking cats, balance your stats and carry out your research into the dark and questionable history of the Island.
Drawing inspiration from trailblazing games such as Undertale, Dream Daddy, Hatoful Boyfriend, and Pony Island, there’ll be lots of twists, turns and alternate playthroughs to keep you replaying.
Purrfect Date is part Visual Novel and part Dating Simulator. It has just over 125,000 words which would take more than 10 hours to read if you read at the average reading speed of 200 words per minute. The game takes place over 6 main chapters, followed by a conclusion. In each of the 6 main chapters, you will take the role of a different, newly appointed, human research assistant, employed to research and look after cats, on an island full of them.
