There is a niche community of dating sims for dating all kinds of animals – from pugs, to pigeons and onward finally to T-rex’s. Perhaps this is a squick for you, too close to bestiality to be in any way entertaining. You, a discerning customer, would never date a pigeon.
If that is you, then you should look away because this game is about dating cats.
Purrfect Date, puts you as a human scientist on an island with a bunch of lonely, single cats. You will have the option to date a total of six cats and they have a promise to take into consideration to whether you’re male, female, gender neutral or undecided. No word on what you do if you’re not into cats. Probably don’t play the game, I’d guess.
Purrfect Date is billed as a visual novel/dating sim with management simulation elements. There is also a “perplexing mystery” to solve.
It may seem like I’m dodging around and having some difficulty discussing whether or not I’d recommend backing this game or not. The truth of the matter is this: there are two types of people in the world, and if you’re not the type that perked up immediately upon hearing the words “cat dating sim” it seems unlikely that you’ll be interested in Purrfect Date.
The question as to whether this is bestiality is left open to interpretation in the Purrfect Date FAQ:
Q: Seriously though, is this bestiality?
A: This game is art. Art is open to interpretation. I think asking this question, says more about you than it does about the game. Maybe you should ask yourself “Is it I, that what is the bestiality?”
So there’s that.
If you’re terribly interested in the world of Purrfect Date and can’t wait to sink your kitty claws into feline dating goodness, then head on over to Steam Greenlight and toss them a vote.
