Published by Bossa Studios (I Am Bread, Surgeon Simulator), Purrfect Date is exactly what you'd expect it to be: a cross between a visual novel and a dating sim with just the right amount of unsettling and wonderfully British humour.

Across seven chapters you'll balance your work life as a newly employed research assistant and your love life romancing a selection of cats, and gradually uncover the dark secret of Cat Island. Drawing inspiration from games like Undertale, Dream Daddy, and Hatoful Boyfriend, I think we've got a pretty clear idea of what to expect.

The adorable thing here is that, past its slightly creepy undertone, Purrfect Date is a personal project for Bossa Studios' Content Producer, Oliver Hindle, and his girlfriend, Ruby-Mae Roberts.

There's no set date for the game's release just yet but you can read more about it on Steam and watch the trailer above while you're at it. It's an experience.
