PERFECTION! Really great but Mink was more painful by far given the endings possible in it.

I chose they/them but in the ocean scene Lillie said ''I think She's going to break''

Also in the ''I love you Lillie'' route it says ''rubbing ... with another woman''


Whenever I update next, a fix for these will be included. Thanks for letting me know!


one of a game ever


What engine is this built in? I've seen the GUI in a couple visual novels now and I'm curious ^^.


This game was built in Ren'Py! I'm not much of a UI artist, so I stuck with the default menus the engine provides. That said, I did make some adjustments and some of the menus are custom. 

Quick question: what images come in the art pack? Is it new content, or just hi-res images from the main game? I'm kind of in love with Ally and plan on buying this, but I wanted to see what's in the art pack first.

The art pack comes with the original 4K resolution versions of the in-game art as well as the game's soundtrack in FLAC & MP3. There aren't any exclusive images, unfortunately. 

That said, I do still draw Ally from time to time though since she's cute.

I'm a little confused. I feel like I've tried every single combination of scenes, every "don't pursue lillie" option, and both options in every sex scene. Yet the game says I've seen 78.2% and CG Gallery 2 is largely empty. What am I missing?

EDIT: Nevermind, I forgot you could play the game with a vagina, lol


I know this must have been frustrating at the time, but this comment genuinely made me laugh. 

I hope you got your 100%!


Haha, yes, I did get 100% in the end! 

Was going to try out the browser demo, but then this happened.


What device are you on? This is apparently a common error on apple devices for the version of that the game is running on, especially Safari & iOS. There is a build you can download for apple computers, but iOS is not supported at this time. 

If you are not on iOS, I definitely still recommend trying one of the downloadable builds as you should not run into this error there.

I'm on a PC using Google Chrome.


Oof, yep. My Google Chrome is doing the same thing so a recent update must have broken things. I'll push an update as soon as Ren'Py has a fix.

For now, the work-around is to play the game with developer tools open (Right Click - Inspect) . For some reason, this makes the game work. 


It was censored, this is a huge letdown. I mean I KNOW if I paid for it it'd probably be uncensored, but it's hard for me to cum with the censorship and therefore I can't really decide how big of a load the actual game will make me blow if I can't have a proper load busting trial. I REALLY want to support this but I just am on the fence, sorry but thanks anyways! Wish you the best <3

Bro will never enjoy hentai


Bravo! I've only seen 26.4% of the content according to my first play through, but I fell for this Lillie right away. Gotta play again to see an Ally route and hopefully a threesome route too!


When is the full version for android coming out?


The full version should already be available. Are you having trouble purchasing it? 

Much more interested in Allison not to say Lillie isn't interesting in fact they're both well done and I enjoy both characters dynamics I just vibe with Allison more since it reminds of a passed relationship I had.

what animal are u in the game just askin


I didn't really think about it during development, but, uh...




what is the difference between the free and paid versions

From the description: 

The free version of the game on this page is the full game but with some removed features and censored sex scenes. 
In the full version, you get access to additional features like uncensored art and the gallery (CG Gallery, Music Room, and Scene Viewer).

So, in the free version, you're free to go through Date an Otter and experience the story but every sex scene is censored and you won't be able to use the gallery to keep track of your progress and view unlocked art, music, and replayable scenes.

Found a little bit of an issue where the game crashes out in the main menu or the gallery (and seems to be more common on the gallery). There's no error messages or notable things to confirm what needs to be done to trip the crash, and it seems to be on any part of the main menu or gallery, and very much at random. That said, it doesn't seem to happen during the story or when you go into the menu from there (so long as you don't go back to the main menu). The software is still open, but it just kicks me back to my tablet's home page, and when I go back in, it goes back to the loading screen. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2020 (SM-T510), with Android 10, which I know uses technology that is a little on the out-dated side now, but given this is a visual novel, I wasn't expecting so many crashes... don't know if any of this helps in the slightest with nailing the bug. Really enjoyed the story though!

I did some testing on my Android device and wasn't able to duplicate the issue. My device has a bit more power than yours, so I think you may be right about the Tab A's specs causing problems. 

Date an Otter's gallery is a bit different on the back end from my previous VNs, so it's likely a bit more demanding/unoptimized on those screens. I know a way I can reduce memory usage on these screens, but it'll have to be in a future patch. I don't know when/if that patch may come, but you should still be able to run other VNs (Date a Mink's free if you need something to test) . 

Also, I'm happy to hear this issue didn't get in the way of the story! ^^

I can confirm Date A Mink ran fine, was great seeing Eris again =D I probably just need to buy a better tablet, lol.

Hi! Haven't finished the game at the time of writing, but I have found something interesting. Every now and again an error appears at the top of the screen, informing me that 'the user has denied entry to the Database'. Not sure what it means, maybe it's something on my side but I thought you'd want to know.

Looking forward to further development!

That shouldn't happen. If you see it again, could you send me a screenshot? 

(1 edit)

Here it is, I included the choice selection screen just incase that helps you figure out what's causing it:

This isn't the first time this error appeared during this game, I wasn't quick enough to capture it though. Also the errors seem to appear more whenever choices come up, but they also do appear throughout gameplay, I'll try get more screenshots.

It may be worth saying that I am playing on an incognito browser, so that could possibly be interfering with the game? If you want me to I can try to test what happens if I play on a normal browser?

(2 edits)

I was able to replicate the error by opening the game up in an incognito browser. I believe it occurs whenever the game tries to save (it autosaves at choices) using cookies.

The issue should disappear when running in a normal browser.

Ah, ok. Sorry if I caused any panic.

Girl this demo is just wild , i mean boy Lillie is just so wild that i think she is interesting a bit , but about Eris cousin, what happened to Eris? And when the boyfriend drama happened? Is it after or before?

Will there be a scene with the Player and Ally, or an Ally based game in the future. She is adorable, and deserves all the love 🥺


You'll be able to romance Ally in the final game.

The writing style is intimate and well-written, although I wish there is a toggle-able option to switch words such as paw to hand, fur to skin etc. just like how the pronouns can be changed. You know, everyone's got their cup of tea.


I was hoping to play but cant bc I am on tablet and the name thing is for computer pretty didpointed 


If you're on Android, there's a downloadable version of the demo that should allow you to input your name!

I came along after meeting Eris, and now I'm already hooked on a new story, having barely learned anything about it. I'm looking forward to this one when it comes out!

i love Eris , and Ally seem to be like her

This was pretty great for a demo, the descriptions were very detailed and enough to keep me going. I also can't wait to get to know more about Ally she seems like a really nice character

I've been seeing a lot of this demo pop up as I search for a VN to check out...And I must say.. I wasn't disappointed when I checked this out...I liked the design and look of this so far...Here is to hoping for a release or an update!!!!! (100/10 stars)

I loved your demo and the game has great potential. I am Brazilian and I would like to know if it would be possible for you to translate the game into Brazilian Portuguese, I can help.

I'd be happy to support a Brazilian fan translation! 

If you'd like, I can send the files needed for translation. Just pop into my fan Discord and reach out to me.

I got recommended quite a lot of this game through my email by itch and got curious to see what it was about, and I must say, it's pretty good.

The art alone made me play the game and it didn't disappoint me, the history is quite confusing, with a lot of "holes" in it, even if the game is a demo, I think it should have explained a little more about who I am and etc, but that can be forgiven, summing up, the game is very good, looking forward for the full game, and I did see that you made other games, I will be also trying to check some of them ;)


Don't worry, much of that confusion will be cleared up with the final release. ^^
Thanks for checking out my game! 

is the game going to be updated on this page? either way i love your art! i'm excited to see where this goes!


Yep, when the final game is done, it'll be released here!


Looking forward for this coming out ^^ Loved your "A Night With A Batgirl" game

Also,  Happy New Year!
