You should buy this game trilogy... NOW! (It's great story and character wise, NOT to mention the art style!)

thanks for letting me know!! i've updated both the pc and mac version of the game (aside from "mac-oldos", which should only work on older versions of mac). let me know if that fixes things and sorry for the inconvenience!

That worked, thank you so much! I really appreciate you taking the time to help me experience this fun looking game! Please don't apologize, I'm sorry to have caused you an inconvience.


no worries at all, your feedback will probably help players in the future so it's much appreciated! hope you enjoy the game! :>

still one of my favorite games on itch!

Sparky is best boy


This. Game. Is. AMAZING.


Really enjoyed it!


Purrfect Apawcalypse = Perfect Apocalypse

*The bold part of the text is edited.*

Purr is for cat, paw is for dog!
Purrfect Apawcalypse is going to rise around!

Cats dating dogs?! I think this is the best game ever seen!

It is quite well written and has many variations for a free game, plus all the character models that are not demons are adorable and the dialogues were often quite funny to me.

I like the general theme of the work of looking for the best in moments of grief and making the most of what life has to offer, unfortunately the protagonists have to learn their lesson in the middle of the end of their world. Of course, special mention to the adventure of trying chocolate even knowing that as canines that is lethal, since I saw that scene I can't stop thinking about it and every time someone has a dog and chocolate nearby, I can't stop thinking about it. "the forbidden flavor".


who tf is playing a dog dating game bro you are a NPC FIND GOD


you wouldnt understand


Dog dating game


uhhh that is a npc opinion my guy

only chads play dog dating game


I came to play this sweet game you had me at cute school girls that looked like furries so I was trapped and boy did I enjoy the playthrough though I must admit that I died quite a lot to get a happy ending. But boy was it worth it.  I would love Patches if he wasn't so deadly to a sweet puppy as me!  I hope you watch me and support me as I could use the support struggling artist. lol 🌹 


are you gonna make it on Xbox?


how can i get the good ending?

pls someone help:/

(1 edit)


1. Stay in the closet so that you can get the key to the basement

2. Get both Sparky and Brownie on your team. (Sparky on gym and Brownie on the bathroom) It doesn't matter what order you do it. As long as you get both of them

3. Go to the Basement. Sparky will start to initiate his plan which would lead the witch (Coco) and the ghost (Angel) to relocate elsewhere. Just skip the dialouge until you get to choose where to go again

4. Go to the classroom so that you can meet up with both Coco and Angel

5. Angel will think that Sparky is Patches and will try to attack him. Make sure to talk to him so that he would spare Sparky

6. Go back to the basement and enter inside the door

7. Refuse Patches offer and win the game!


This was a really great story and I love all of the different endings I could get. The art style is really fun too!


I haven't even played the game yet and Sparky already has my entire heart. 




Game: "Heres a story with adorable art and a third person-kinda- protagonist! Have fun with it, find that special someone, don't get killed-"

Me: "stay in the closet"

Game: "Wh? No, you... wait ill help you"

Me: "Back in the closet"

Game: "No, stop, there's nothing for you there"

Me: "Back in the closet"


The art style and story is good! I don't see any problem at all!


Love this short little game, I dunno why but it relaxed me even though it's all about brutally dying lol

Do you  have music sheets that you can put as a pdf as a reply of the ost of this game? I want to try to play some of the music on one of my instruments and it would be greatly appreciated if you could!

Do you guys have a Linux version?


Can I translate this game to Japanese? :3


go ahead, you have full permission!






Oops, I bought Purrgatory Furever on steam, havent played it yet but I didnt know Love at Furst Bite was first. Wish that was explained better on the steam pages


i could only play this version because im broke

(2 edits)

One of the best games I've ever played!! it had a great story and getting all endings with the different characters wasn't that hard. It is in need of some bgm though, which isn't that big a deal since you could just add your own, which I did. 

I almost quit the game before thinking of another order to pick up the dogs in, and it turned out to be the good end!!

Great job on character design and their personalities, It's a lot of content for a visual novel!  

If only there were Linux builds...

I know I'm two months late, but the "PC" build works natively on linux just fine, the game directory has an .sh script that launches the game.

The Atmosphere is really cute getting endings is so hard tho but other than that its great

(1 edit)

I know how incredibly late I am,( I always am), but I know you said you were done with the series, but what about smaller, half games. These could take place in between 1 and 2, 2 and 3, have a prequel or what happened after 3. I know somebody has probably already asked this and you guys have been constantly for asked more content, I just wanted to give my honest opinion. Maybe you guys could make a 4th one after some time,  it's really none of my business or decision. Hopefully I will get an answer, but don't feel pressured to.  (Hello puppies)- A very trustable and sane dalmatian.


sorry, as said before we don't intend on adding any more content to the PA series but thanks for your interest! 

Understandable, what about porting the games to the app store. I have an Android phone and no PC. I've seen videos and I really would like to play the games. (Sorry for being pushy)

"i can't believe i died on the toilet..."

yo i was one of the first people to play the games, after a big computer mishap though i lost all of them from my hard-drive and now i no longer have them :'D (i got them when they were all free, as i was there as soon as they released) still one of my favorites and i can rave about it for hours.

a question, is there some kind of chronological order in the games? or can I buy whatever and it doesn't matter?Menhera has a lot of questions : menhera

yeah play it in this order!

1. purrfect apawcalypse/the remastered version, love at furst bite

2. purrgatory furever

3. patches' infurno

thanks :)

great game could you add more endings 

This game is very cute, enjoyable, gory and dark at the same time! I'm sure I have chose all the choices and got all the endings including "Everyone Survived!", definitely recommended, sadly I don't have money so I can't play the other games.

me too, i dont have a mastercard

(1 edit)

I didn't even notice that they cost money since i got them when it was for free temporarily, i'll tell ya, the two other games are legit good.

I really wish to translate this game to pawlish (polish, haha) but i dont have time nor skills and knowledge to do so + nor i have permision... 

it was really cute. 10/10

(1 edit)

after trying i can now play the game and im in love with patches, to bad i cant have an ending that satisfies me with him

try the last game

download problems haven't been the same when you looking to play somthing

That was...


Like, there are a lot of enditings,

But gladly, i finished and got the Everyone Survived!

oh my lord this is so cute and gory
