Hot Date is a MERCILESS pug speed dating sim


Amazing and free

Dates are sweet. The fruit. Dating? Hit or miss. So many games with dating elements boil down to easy win conditions, wooing success. It's very easy to pick out what you're supposed to say to these fake, digital people to make them love you.

Maybe it's just different with fake, digital pugs? Because the speed dating participups in Hot Date are not having your shit. No coasting by here. Even something innocuous can be a huge turn off. And that's great! A hell of lot more realistic than dating sims where the other party is always impressed. In real life, sometimes other people don't care about or find interest in things you do and that's okay.

These conversations are sometimes awkward, sometimes self-esteem destroying, but they evoke way more real feelings of unguarded, eager, and frightened human interaction.

Plus it's funny and adorable as all get out. Pretty and well-scored, too. And, hell, it's completely free to download and play right now.
