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 created this short teaser - half demo, half prologue - that takes place just before the events of the main game. It sports a brand new script and shiny art assets from our wonderful art team! This prologue is a great way to get a feel for the full game, without the wait!~

In this prologue, 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.

For news on the full release, follow us on Twitter (that's where the sneak peeks go!), Tumblr, or right here on itch!

Here's the crew:

timepatches (project lead, writer, UI artist)

spaceoutstation (sprite artist)
VividGrim (character design, background, and sprite help)

So excited for the full game, I already loved the demo!! :3c


we're so happy you enjoyed it!! keep an ear out for the full game, coming soon ;w; ♡


I. Can. Not. WAIT for the final game! Good luck, guys!! And, uh... I wish to god we were playing as the ghost.... We won't be, will we? Oh, I wish so badly for him to have a spin off... But all in all, the love interests seem amazing!!! Good luck~~

I'm so glad to hear how excited you are for the full game!! So are we - and it's getting very close to release, we promise! Stay tuned :3

(And I wouldn't expect a sequel for Geist any time soon... but I wouldn't rule it out, either C; )

Teasing like that should be illegal XDXD Thank you so much for answering!!

I played the demo and I just loved it! I created this account just to leave this comment :)... I also wanted to know if the final product will be paid? 

Thanks so much for this lovely comment!! ♡

We haven't decided on a final price yet, but the final game will be paid, yes.

Well... Mino has aldready won my heart.

(we know we aren't supposed to pick favourites but... same)
Not long for the final release! Hopefully he catches your heart just as much in the full game ♡


The last person to ask this question asked nine months ago, so when is the full game coming out? The characters and the art were really good and I'm excited to see what happens.


Gotta give you a classically cagey answer unfortunately, haha, but very soon actually! The only assets we're still working on are the character CGs, and then all that's left is to assemble it. Not long now! Hopefully by the end of Q2 this year :)

When will the full game be released? This was so good and the art style is amazing.

Thank you! And we're actually getting really close! No concrete release date yet, but you can follow us on Twitter or Tumblr for more frequent updates, and we'll be sure to let y'all know as soon as the date is set ♡


ARGH this gonna be so great ! I can't wait to play the full game ! 


Thank you so much! We're so excited for the full game to be out (we'll keep you posted ^^)


Yeah thanks :D

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 😊

cool! if it's not too much trouble, would it bee cool to share a MC's sprite?

We have some previews up on Twitter if that helps!


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!

DemiDato is great just it's really short. I know you can't give away too much in  a demo but, I felt it was all rushed. The ending was the same for all the contestants. Not bashing as, the game is good the art style is nice, the dialouge well written and, the characters for what we get are quirky.

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!

(1 edit)

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 

Thank you for your Let's Play! We appreciate it! We know the demo is a little short, but we had some time constraints to contend with; regardless,  thank you for the feedback!
