UK-based developer, Bae Team have this week announced their brand new game, Purrfect Date, a cat dating sim which is set to launch on PC, Mac, and iOS later this year.
Bae Team are working with Bossa Studios on the release of Purrfect Date that’ll see players dive into a world where it’s okay to date cats. It’s a cross between a visual novel, dating sim, and a “dark British comedy”. In the game, along with dating various felines, players will also be able to uncover the secrets of the mysterious Cat Island.
I mean, it’s a game where you can date cats… I’m sold.
Purrfect Date will include seven chapters as players adopt the role of several new employees among a research facility on an island which is pretty much entirely populated by cats.
The game, as you’d expect, takes inspiration from several popular sims, such as Undertale, Dream Daddy, Hatoful Boyfriend, and Pony Island, among others, and will offer several playthroughs with alternate endings.
“Oliver and I were lazing around one day, itching to play a game, but nothing really grabbed our interest, so we started talking about what we’d do if we could make the ideal game for us. Cats, intrigue, dating sims, the TV show Lost… all of these things became the ingredients that went into making Purrfect Date. It’s an amalgamation of everything we love, and in essence, a love letter to each other (and cats).”

Purrfect Date is set to launch on PC, Mac, and iOS this Winter.
