DemiDato: the Demo
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Like your demihumans cute or scary, nice or not so nice, girls or guys, or anything in between? Either way, DemiDato is for you! When you enter into the monster world's biggest dating game show, will you snag a demihuman to call your own, or be forced to leave alone?
The DemiDato team have created this short prologue demo for Ren'py Jam to whet your appetite for the full game, with a brand new script and shiny art assets from our wonderful art team! Play this demo if you want to get a feel for the full game without the wait~
In this demo, you'll get to meet just a few of our 12 dateable characters from the full game, as well as getting to know Geist, our long-suffering host, and the mysterious main character of the main game.
Here's the crew:
timepatches (project lead, writer, UI artist)
Jane Titor (writer)
spaceoutstation (sprite artist)
VividGrim (character design, background, and sprite help)
Freen in Green (music)

Thank you so much! We're so excited for the full game to be out (we'll keep you posted ^^)
I really enjoyed the demo! It made me excited to play the full game!
Thanks for playing, and for your let's play! We're excited to bring you the full thing ~ <3
this might be a bit of a silly question, but is MC (your character) male or female?
In the full game you can choose between she, he, and they pronouns, so we address them with they in the demo and on social media etc 😊
Why the prettiest character is a boy? :( I'd absolutely date for Mino if he'ds be woman. xD .
It's only detail i don't like... I'm waiting for more <3
Wow, that's short! I mean I had expected short, but that was really short! Kinda of like being promised with a nice eclair but only getting to take a nibble :p
First, the art is very very good. I like it very much, everything is pleasing to look at and the monsters are all very varied.
I'm eagerly awaiting the full release!
Also I like the mermAIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDD (he's so pretty)
Thank you for the feedback!
Unfortunately the length of the demo was a necessary evil since the script was written from scratch in a very short amount of time, but we hope you like the full game!
Thank you for your Let's Play! We appreciate it!
And we've had some feedback about the demo being too short - unfortunately that was a necessary evil during development. This demo was able to be finished with assets that were mostly already created, or WIP, on the art and UI side of things, but the script was written from scratch in the span of 6 days to get it done for the jam we participated in. There's only so far the writing team can push themselves!
Anyway, thank you for the feedback, and thank you for liking the game regardless!
The real question is, can we date the host? ;)
*ahem* Honestly though, this is so adorable?? The idea is super cool! The demo is a bit on the short side, but that didn't really bother me. I just wanted to meet all the characters, I get really excited about monster dating games and I like to see which types of monsters people include in them. XD
All the characters were super entertaining! I found myself grinning at all three of their intros, and of course at the host's dialogue. However, you should know that, in particular, I'm now head over freaking heels for Mino. He's just so precious!!! He's absolutely beautiful, and he made me giggle and go "awww". I have a soft spot for cute, happy, slightly ditzy guys like him; those types are just too sweet. Him being a mermaid (merman?? Merperson??? XD) made it even better since I love aquatic monsters.
And the intro of the MC/player character made me snort. They seem fun and I very much relate to them so far, hehe!
All in all, this demo is the start of something really cool!! It's right up my alley and hits all my buttons for what I want in a game, tbh. The art style is cute, too, btw! It's so soft and casual but also clean and polished. And as I said, the characters are really lovely, so great job on the personalities and writing as well!
I'm really looking forward to seeing more of this. But take care and don't push yourselves! Good luck with this game, and I'm definitely gonna be back to check for updates and stuff in the future! <3
I have to gush for a second because oh my goodness. Thank you SO much for this lovely comment!! I've read it so many times over, it's so wonderful to know that someone loves this project as much as we do!
Your lovely feedback has been recorded, and we can't wait to see what you think of the full game!
The demo is a little short but I like the idea! Great job with the game and the personality for the characters
