Happy new… correction, mew year, everyone! (and yes, it might be a fresh start, but the cat puns are going absolutely nowhere.). First of all, in the slog that’s always that first week back, thanks for choosing this particular article as the one to further put off replying to that email. Today, we’re scratching beneath the felt-tipped, colourful surface of Purrfect Date, and hinting at what you may or may not already suspect lies beneath…
From the cutesy cartoon cats to the earworm-personified launch song, you’d be forgiven for thinking you had Purrfect Date sized up. Throw in the fact that it’s been produced by Bossa Studios – an indie game manufacturer known for its quirky titles including I am Bread and Surgeon Simulator (yes, the one you where you get to operate on Donald Trump) – and it’s case closed. Or is it? Purrfect Date’s been out for less than a month, and so word’s only just begun to spread, but there’s more to these seemingly cute pussycats than meets the eye.
Is it a dating sim? Is it a visual novel? Or is it something entirely different altogether?
It’s not for us to say.
Because the Steam reviews have already spoken…
A closet dating-sim fan if ever we knew one!
Um, probably best to just ignore that last bit…
Genre benders, hey? What did we tell ya!
Yes, yes it does.
Caps, so you know it’s true. Better guard those ‘feels’ though…
Same goes for using bold. If not more so! (#caseinpoint)
Science, cats and mysteries. AKA, the pillars of life.
Redacted, for your own protection.
So, still think Purrfect Date’s just another dating sim? Check it out here on Steam and let us know in the comments below!

The time is finally (almost) here - the time you’ve all been waiting for! “What time?” we hear you cry…
Not HAMMER TIME, although we all love a bit of Hammer Time here in the office, we mean the time to Make Surgery Great Again!
Surgeon Simulator A&E Edition (includes the Trump surgery, plus all of the other cool stuff like eyeballs and teeth) is now 80% off. That’s 80% off the full game AND the upgrade. We’re running this promotion all the way through the election and beyond, until the dust settles on planet earth on 14th November.
Don’t be a bad hombre, and make your vote count. At the time of writing, our tickometer is showing that 41% of voters have given Trump a heart of gold, while 59% have awarded him a heart of stone, but it’s not too late to change the outcome of the poll if you feel strongly about Mr Trump one way or the other.
Let’s build a paywall, and make the patient pay for it!
