You're on TV - monster TV! ♡

Welcome to the set of the monster world's biggest dating show, DemiDato! Your protagonist (with your choice of name and pronouns) is a plucky human in a silly hood, the latest contestant to team up with the show's notoriously snarky host Paul T. Geist on live TV. 

It's time to find your very own demihuman date! But if you can't win anyone over, you must risk leaving the show utterly dateless </3

Good luck! You might need it!

DemiDato features:

  • A whopping 12 dateable characters, with multiple ways to arrive at each character's ending, and more than one silly bad end to find!
  • Bite-size routes - one run of the game can be completed in under an hour, making it perfect for streaming, and easy to replay. Experience as many routes and character endings as you like - each branch after the intro is a new story!
  • Nameable protagonist with an inclusive choice of pronouns
  • VN crafted as a love letter to 'monster girl' tropes and real life dating shows like If You Are The One and Take Me Out - and armed with many puns to poke gentle fun at all of it ♡
  • Slick, slightly cheesy reality TV nostalgia baked in throughout our bespoke original soundtrack and UI.

That was FUN!!!  I liked it!  And the game even has a walkthrough attached to it too...  If you don't feel like thinking.  :p

Everyone has their own personality and quirks and hmm...  I just liked everyone (almost) with ears.  (Tomoe and Finn *cough*)  Dmitri was funny in his own way (even though I don't get all the words he used...) andddddd Arien.  Have to have demons too.  Especially incubi.  ^-^

The CGs for good ends are adorable!  I would say which one is my favorite, but then anyone who reads this will read too much into it.  So hah!



Thank you so much for playing and coming back to comment!! So happy you enjoyed ♡♡

(And as for Dmitri... well, they're well aware that they're an acquired taste, hehe)

Will you release the game on Steam?

If not that's alright, I'll still get this. XD Just curious~

It might be in the cards for the future! But not anytime soon, so if you'd like to play the best place to get it is itch.io :)


Will do!

May I ask the number of LIs in precise? How many uses she/her, how many uses he/him, and how many uses they/them ?

Sorry for the question!


No problem, thank you for asking, I'm happy to answer! 

DemiDato has 12 LIs in it, 6 that identify as women and use she/her (Saffron, Thyme, Koe, Jiānrěn, Mako, and Tabitha), 5 that identify as men and use he/him (Mino, Arien, Benji, Finn, and Tomoe), and 1 that identifies as nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns (Dmitri the vampire).


Fantastic game!

Some things I really enjoyed:

  • The sense of humor throughout (shout out to the amazing ads!)
  • The beautiful color schemes
  • How unique all the characters looked; similarly, the wide variety of character personalities
  • The inclusion of mythology trivia
  • The whole art book
  • How the end couples really made sense depending on the MC’s choices. You did a great job naturally showing different aspects of compatibility!
  • How we got hints of intriguing character backstory and worldbuilding naturally through character dialogue

My only complaint? That I would have loved more time with these characters! :P


Thank you so much for this lovely comment!! So SO happy to hear all the bits you enjoyed, and thank you for playing!! ♡♡♡

And just by the way, while I don't have any concrete plans for a sequel, all my games are set in the same universe, so I wouldn't resign yourself to saying bye to these characters just yet!
(In fact, later this month you might want to stay tuned for... something 👀✨)

Oooooh - consider me officially intrigued. ;)

That's amazing art and bgm. I enjoyed the plot 

Thanks so much! So happy you enjoyed it ♡


This game is the cat's meow, daddy-o. I'll see you hipsters at the speakeasy after the show, ya dig?

Hot dog, this hip cat really knows their onions! ♡♡♡
