What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Shark Dating Simulator XL has finally been picked up again, has a brand new engine painstakingly coded out line by line and is ready for some laughs. There is currently one Halloween story included; with the next story (coming November) I'm taking this thing out of early access and will add more stories until there's just no room for more.

All stories will be included as updates; you won't have to pay for more content. It'll just turn up!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I know, it's been five years. Hold on another month!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I would like the full version to offer:

~ More storylines
~ Mini games
~ Less bugs”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The engine is now more or less complete, so it's time to forge ahead!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game will increase after we leave early access to reflect the greater level of content and artwork and hours put into the game's creation!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Suggestions and requests as well as reports on typos and bugs are all extremely welcome! I will be browsing the forum daily and very involved in any discussions on what the community would like the final product to be.”

“Have you ever watched Jaws, saw the shark, and thought it was kinda hot? Well you’re in luck, because now you can live out your aquatic apex predator lovin’ dreams in Shark Dating Simulator XL. Be warned— it is definitely NSFW.”

About This Game

As a unique detective who operates mostly underwater, can you solve the array of baffling cases brought to you by eccentric clients? And even if you can, can you score with a shark girl along the way? The answer is; yeah, probably.

Shark Dating Simulator XL is a quirky visual novel packed with irreverent and immature humour featuring short-play stories with a host of remarkable characters. Well, it will be. It's got one story right now, but I'm aiming for another one ready for November and finally we can leave early access!

~ A visual novel unlike any other.
~ Vibrant cartoon graphics. I have two degrees in this stuff, believe it or not.
~ Kawaii Shark Girl desu Senpai!
