Purrfect Date is a cross between a visual novel, dating sim, and dark British comedy. You, a human, will get to date cats and uncover the secrets of the mysterious Cat Island. Choose your own adventure as you romance the 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.

Throughout the game’s seven chapters, you will be playing as multiple scientific researchers, on a quest to analyse and understand the flora, fauna, and felines of a very unusual island - Cat Island - an island almost exclusively inhabited by Cats.

As you investigate and assess the Island locals, you begin to realise there is more to these cute kitties than meets the eye.

  • 666 - 6 chapters, 6 playable humans and 6 dateable cats.
  • Final Chapter - A final, 7th chapter, based on the decisions, choices and consequences of your 6 previous characters and chapters.
  • A long tail - With more words than Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Purrfect Date contains more than 7 hours of Gameplay (Based on the average reading speed of 200 words per minute).
  • Manage your Research, Recon, Romance and Stress levels - It's up to you to diligently juggle your stats while maintaining a flourishing professional and romantic life.
  • Curiosity killed the cat - Multiple endings, paths, hidden stories and side adventures.
  • Localised in as many as 1 whole language - English.
  • Steam Achievements, Trading Cards and Cloud Saving.
  • Meowsic and Programming by OliverAge24 - Musician, turned YouTuber, turned GameDev, this is Oliver’s debut game.
  • Written by Ruby-Mae Roberts - Ruby loves cats. Her mum, Charon, also helped write the game.
  • Pawesome Artwork by Dan Lish - He’s worked on games such as Grand Theft Auto 3, Serious Sam and DJ Hero, with companies such as Lucas Arts, Rockstar Games and Sony, and on loads more projects, including comics, album art and graffiti.

This game is dedicated to Little Edie and Lush. May their food bowls forever overfloweth with mackerel (they're both still alive btw).

Purrfect Date reviews and comments

Translated by

Product received for free too many texts... You can make choices, but not often... It's a pity the idea is good, but other interactions with cats or characters would be interesting (eg.: a House with our cats where we can walk.). It's worse than dot & click (which I usually like), I always had my finger on ENTER...:( Hoping for a better cat game one day!

I really liked this game. As I started to play, I was more and more curious about the story! All characters' personalities are fun and also the pictures and images are nice. I loved some songs of the OST, too! Mi è piaciuto molto questo gioco. EPr apprezzarlo al meglio occorre sapere l'inglese. La storie prende, i personaggi sono creati bene con belle personalità e i disegni ed il soundtrack sono molto piacevoli. Consigliato !

A very interesting Story that you play through here in the Form of a cat dating. The Makers have come up with some interesting Twists. Also, that you only get the Antidote thanks to Teamwork I sometimes find a clever Solution. Basically very worthwhile, but more likely for €5! Than for 10;-) To all Achievementhunter: With me the Game was bent at 99.30% and I got the 100% full through Luck. And they are necessary for the last Achievement;-)

Product received for free Purrfect Date is a visual novel with dating simulator mechanics ideal for cat lovers. And we say it literally. This is the game we never thought would exist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRl18oIDZTM More Analysis and criticism here [www.simpatiaporlacritica.com] Before reading this review, it is necessary to warn them that all the content poured into it arises from humour and recognition to originality. Purrfect Date is a game that is almost impossible to take seriously, but attention! That is not to say that it is not perfect in its own intention. Everything proposed by the developer study is carried out perfectly, so there is very little to object. Except, of course, their theme. Leaving aside the obvious (ie a simulator dating between humans and cats) Purrfect Date is a very good graphic novel with a plot that will surprise by its originality and the turns that we will find along the same. Beyond the narrative, there are several things to do within the game. From daily missions, different random events, exploration, and cat recruitment. We will Try not to give spoilers, but we can assure you that there is an explicit explanation to justify everything that happens on the island, even though at first glance it seems totally absurd. A lot of humour, great references, a great narrative work, great replayability, a lot of irony and-in fact-very good mechanics will ensure some hours of fun within Purrfect Date. For Those who are not afraid to let themselves be surprised, this is their game.
