We’ve been irrationally excited for Bossa Studio’s forthcoming cat-dating game ever since we first heard about it back in August of last year, and just prior to its “official" release date of Valentine’s Day this Wednesday the pun-laden Purrfect Date ($4.99) is now available in the App Store. Created by the two-person Bae Team and published by Bossa Studios of Surgeon Simulator ($4.99) and I Am Bread ($4.99) fame, Purrfect Date is “the ultimate crossbreed between visual novel, dating sim, and dark British comedy." You’ll play as a human who travels to a place called Cat Island, which sounds like some sort of utopia to me, and you’ll date a number of different types of felines in order to unravel some sort of crazy mystery. I don’t know, it’s a cat dating simulator, do you really need to know anything besides that? Here are two very musical and quite catchy trailers for Purrfect Date so you can get an idea of what it’s all about.
Yes, “Come for the pussy and stay for the tale" will go down in history as the greatest tagline of a video game ever. Purrfect Date launched on Steam back in December to overwhelming delight of all who played it, and now it can accompany you on your travels and fit snugly into your pocket. Also, the game costs just a fiver and there is no IAP or any other shenanigans of any kind. Just buy the game once and date cats until you can’t take it anymore. I like that. Honestly, this is the type of game that you either bought the moment you saw this headline or you just don’t get what the fuss is about. If you’re in the former camp, then enjoy playing Purrfect Date as you set out on a romantic feline adventure. If you’re in the latter camp, then just go about your day and forget you ever saw this totally weird game!
