Purrfect Date - Visual Novel/Dating Simulator - Mangerive

Previously in Closed Beta, Worlds Adrift today launches into Early Access and begins a new chapter in its development.

To celebrate this milestone Worlds Adrift now includes a new culture - the Kioki Unity - and over 100 new islands from our Island Creator community. For a quick preview of some of the new Kioki islands take a look at the GIF above!

Worlds Adrift will continue to evolve throughout Early Access, based on the extensive feedback you, our loyal band of Travellers, continue to provide. To follow progress and receive the latest updates sign up to our newsletter and follow our Roadmap.

See you in the Skies!

Purrfect Date - Visual Novel/Dating Simulator

Feline flirtation simulation Purrfect Date launches via the App Store for iPhone and iPad this Wednesday, 14th February. It's a fitting Valentines Day release!

We fell in love with the dating sim/visual novel when we played its PC version on the showfloor of EGX last year. Its Steam release followed in December, when we gave it a furry positive appraisal:

"Purrfect Date is not just for cat lovers, it's for those who love a game with mystery, personality and the heart of British comedy - something a bit bizarre," Vic wrote in our Purrfect Date review.

Purrfect Date - Visual Novel/Dating Simulator - OliverAge24


The ever obedient dog might be man’s best friend, but that’s only because man had by that point already been shrugged off by its first choice; the cat! And ever since then, we’ve tried to remedy said rejection by worshiping the feline race from afar, whether that’s by constructing mammoth icons of worship (here's looking at you, Ancient Egyptians!), dedicating entire evenings to Youtube, irresistibly watching one cat-centric clip after another in the false promise that we’ll stop after just... one... more, or seamlessly blending the cute fwuffy things into pop-culture at any god-given opportunity. 

And in a continuation of that blind devotion, we decided to painstakingly choose our top ten favourite pop-culture cats ever! Dogs, eh? Pfft.
  
Garfield
Dunno why, but something about Garfield’s round, cuddly shape and oh-so fuzzy ginger fur speaks to us. Wait a minute...
 

  
Keyboard Cat
With a cool 49 million youtube views to her name, Keyboard Cat’s not only one of the most famous felines to have ever graced the planet, but very possibly one of the most famous pianists, too. And like all true geniuses, whether it’s Van Gogh or Galileo, her raw, unparalleled talent was completely overlooked until almost twenty years after her untimely death in 1987.
 

 
Pusheen
Ice cream, donuts, pizza, sushi, noodles, pie, pancakes… You name it, Pusheen’s eaten it. And looked darn cute doing so. She also looks pretty bad ass in a monocle and top hat. #JustSayin
   
Lil Bub
We never thought we’d say this, but when it comes to cuteness, runt-of-the-litter Lil Bub can give even the likes of Pusheen a run for her money, and she don’t need to be eating no ice cream, donuts, pizza, sushi, noodles, pie or pancakes to do it!
 

  
Trixie, Purrfect Date
Sure, we could have included all five of the lovable Purrfect Date rogues in this list, but then again, you guys did officially vote for Trixie as your fave feline, and who are we to argue? Besides, I’ve been trying to get an invite to her cave for a while now, so, ummm, Trixie, if you’re reading this...?
 

  
Grumpy Cat
It’s testament to the pure magnetism of cats, that all it takes is for one to look a little bit grumpy, and wham, bam, thank you, mam, that’s suddenly 2.4 million instagram followers in the bank.
 

  
ThunderCats
ThunderCats basically took everything that was good about the eighties (IOW, muscles, lycra and dangerously volumized hair), and threw it in a pot with cats. The result? Only the best cartoon ever made. EVER. MADE.
 

  
Maru
Just try watching Maru belly-slide into an undersized cereal box - an expression of pure, unadulterated joy on his face - without suffering a severe pang of the ol’ heart strings. *clutches chest*
 
  
Hello Kitty
A few Hello Kitty facts for ya: 1) She’s over forty years old (I know, right? WTH’s her secret?!). 2) Story goes, the reason she doesn’t have a mouth is because she speaks from the heart. 3) She’s the official ambassador of Japanese tourism in both China and Hong Kong. All in all, three very legitimate reasons why the red-bowed Japanese bobtail totally deserves a place in our top ten favourite pop culture cats of all time!
 

  
Cat, Red Dwarf
Because what good is any self-respecting ‘top ten’ list without a token humanoid descendent with a penchant for zoot suits. Altogether now… DWAYNE DIBLEY?!?!
 

 
So, who’ve we missed? From Mufasa to Nyan, Salem to Aslan, let us know in the comments below who’d make it into your own top ten list of pop-culture cats. And if for some reason you’re suddenly in the mood to hang out with a bunch of the fetching felines, get on and download Purrfect Date now!

Kicking off the first of our upcoming Q&A seshes, we managed to prize Kibbles away from his joystick (harder than it sounds!) for a few minutes over the weekend in order to answer a few of the questions you guys sent us. Thanks to everyone who took the time to write in, and while it doesn’t look like Kibble’s spent quite as long answering them, well, he did have a somewhat convincing excuse. Apparently you can’t pause Dark Souls! Anyway…
 
On a scale of 1-10, what’s your favourite colour of the alphabet.
K – I’m colour blind and that’s really insensitive, dude.
 
What’s that growth on your neck?
K – I DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT.
 
If you could describe your own voice, how close is it to Dustin from Stranger Things?
K – I’d say I sound more like Dan Bull, but I can spit more fire than him.
 
What’s your opinion on Hawaiian pizza?
K – I have an intolerance to fruit, so I medically can’t eat pineapple, but if you swap those bits for pepperoni, it’s pretty good.
 
If you suddenly grew thumbs, what would you use them for first?
K – Obviously I’d be the thumb wars world champion, that goes without saying. Also it’d be good for hitchhiking, I guess.
 
What’s your idea of a… purrfect date?
K – The Goldshire Inn.
 
What is the size of your “joystick”?
K – I use a standard 10” thrustmaster.
  
Next up in the hot seat will be everyone’s fave posh puss, Snooty Booty, so look out for our upcoming AMA post on Twitter (@PurrfectDate… but of course, you were already following us, right?) if you fancy popping her a question, or if you’d rather join Kibbles for a game or two in his bedroom, why not skip the pleasantries and download Purrfect Date here!

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!

 Death, taxes, idiots congregating in doorways, and the best new Steam games.

Revolution! Rise up, comrades, and join me, your mighty new host of Unknown Pleasures! No more shall we labour in the asset flip mines. Our days of languishing in the fields of the Plunkbat clone are over. Never again shall we line the trenches of pages 1 through 7 of the new releases list. Well, I> will, obviously.

The first question for the new regime: What are the best new games on Steam that you may have missed over the winter holidays?

Remember this?


Back before Christmas, we posted that if the Twitter post above got 1,000 RTs, myself & Ruby, the creators of Purrfect Date, would both get PD-themed tattoos. Correction: Cattoos!


And guess what? You guys totally delivered! 👏


Sooo, what do you think we should get...?
Purrfect Date - Visual Novel/Dating Simulator - OliverAge24


We started a little challenge on twitter with the trailer.

If this tweet gets 1000 RT's myself and Ruby will get Purrfect Date related tattoos, and video the process!

We're a little short right now, but there's still time to turn it around!

Much love,
Oliver, Ruby + Bossa Studios!
