Just when you think you’ve seen it all, something comes up that makes you realize there are new things under the sun. Enter Purrfect Date, a new cat dating sim. Yes, you did indeed read that correctly.
The aptly named Bae Team has brought you a surreal adventure game where humans and cats actually, well, date. The goal was to take “dark British comedy influences” and combine them with furry fantasies and dating sims. The result is…this.
You can get hold of the game on Steam for $9 and try to score with such darlings as Floofybutt, Snooty Booty or Trixie.
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.
