I downloaded this, and it got as far as playing music with the title Hot Date, but that is all it does. Is there any way to get it to progress?

cool game

this game made me so happy xD 


It's a fun game! I made a playthrough - and better... without pesky comments.




This game saved my life. Thanks Hot Date.


I had a lot of fun playing this game. It was so cute and quirky. I liked making the voices for the doggos. What a fun experience.




Absoulutely loved this game but dissapointed no one wanted to date me lol!

Sorry, I just got this for Windows, but it’s not running properly; problems with the image. Any ideas, tips, maybe my system isn’t adequate?

Figured it out. Graphics Properties and making changes, I think it was setting to driver settings. It works now. It has something to do with Unity-made games.

Really fun little game, gave me a good laugh

Any chance of a 64-bit build for MacOS?

Hoping to get to this soon

Just updated it, it should work on Mac OS Catalina now.


it couldn't run the app on the newest macOS version bro, sorry about that.


Does this really simulate how a speed dating event goes, because if so its pretty horrifying. Luckily, this game features a cute pug, but the comments from the pug can cut deep. 


Forget the books, the videos, the advice of your perfectly happy couple friends. This is the only dating coach you will ever need.

so ive downloaded a few games from itch.io and i have no idea how i play them on my chromebook they just add assets to my files without letting me play it. can ANYONE help me with this i rlly want to play these games


As far as I know, you can't run windows programs without the use of another program. Chromebooks are quite useless. You're stuck to whatever is on the chrome web store I guess


It's the night before Valentine's Day.

This game was literally the most apt passive aggressive thing I needed in my life.

As the memories of my own dearly departed Boxer dog sprung to mind, I thought that if he could've spoken, it would have been something similar to Doris. 

Very funny, quirky game. Look forward to your next endeavours.
