A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Heartthrob Cafe: A Close Up is a romantic visual novel/dating simulator featuring several furry characters who mostly work at a cafe! Hence the name!

However, this is not a demo nor is it the full game! This is just a fun little tech demo test to try out coding in Ren'Py and a number of other things!

Here you can observe characters personalities and a briefing of the plot for the actual game!

You can also support the Patreon for future game updates!

Thank you and enjoy!!

This is a really cute demo and i LOVE the character designs. Looking forward to the full game!

So far so cute! I love the art style, and the characters are so diverse! <3

I did find a small error in the dialogue. Harris says to Venus, "There are things I need to take care and I can't fully focus with your constant note-taking chatter." I believe the OF is missing, as in, "There are things I need to take care of...."

Everything else looked great. I look forward to the full release!
