really loved the gameplay, made me tear up a little, it's simple but it's funny and I had a very good time

i cant beat oliver in tic tac toe

I just finished the game, easter egg and full ending and all. And. Man. It really affected me. 

*SPOILER WARNING* 


When the prompt of "what you regret" came up, I didn't expect it to make me think. I do want a family, but it feels dumb to want that. I should do what I want to, to make my life something kid me would be proud of. 

The part where you get to heaven. its so peaceful. full of plants. its safe. It gives me hope for what I can expect in the future. Not necessarily the dying and going to heaven part, but growing up and having a safe place. 


Thank yall for making this game. It was very cute and sweet.

<3

Will you continue developing games in the future?

I just love your game so much.

probably!

This game is definitely in my top 3 favorite games now. Purrgatory Blues never fails to cheer me up when I'm feeling stressed. I'm really unable to explain how much it means this game means to me, just know that I really appreciate you all for making it.

I wasn't expecting to have such a good time with this game! I thought this was gonna be a short cute little experience so I opened it up while at work during some down time. It actually turned out to be a super fun, longer than I had thought, exploration game. The characters are so fun and even though the world feels pretty small, they definitely make it seem a lot bigger. They're community they've built is great and the big event near the end felt so heartwarming ❀


Lucifur's also great, I just love everyone here.

this is such a fun little game!

I can't live, laugh, love under these conditions!

Holy guacamole this game was incredible! I loved it so much! Just a question, can you do anything with the snowglobes? I collected all 7 but I don't know what I'm supposed to do with them.

Look by the escalator!

THIS IS SO CUTE I LOVED THIS UNFORTNUTALY I DIDNT GET THE ENDING I WANTED SO I JUST LOOKED IT UP LMFAO

What does Natalie do when I finish her story arc?

If you wait a while she goes back to her attic! Then she's happy!

ahhh ok thx :D

Haha! I love the bit 'but the craziest part is? They were roomates. Oh my god they were roomates!'

Does it matter if I make myself a cat?

Why not?

Yey thx

So were the purrgatory gang humans before they died or were they animals?

Up to you!

Nyaaaa im torn between defending Oliver or Kyungsoon v.v

Kyungsoon, Kyungsoon good Oliver bad

its a calming lovable experence with a great hand drawn style

true

(1 edit)

what did you use to make the drawings (sorry to be a pest)

Photoshop with the pencil brush :)

cool thanks

Purrgatory was an absolute joy to play. Exceptionally fun dialogue, a super chill BGM, and an incredibly cute art-style to boot. It was a bit confusing navigating through Purrgatory but the charm behind the game kept me going.


I just put up the first part of my playthrough, and I'll probably get down to completing the game next week once I have the time to record again.

Really glad I got this as part of the Queer Games Bundle πŸ’•

awesome

Hello! my game is having a issue, when i press the load button, my game just crashes. I tried to re-install the game but it don't works, i tried to install it on steam too, but the same thing happened, maybe my game data corrupted? is there a way to solve it?

Oh shoot, I'm sorry about that. If you're on Windows, go to C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\Roaming\Godot\app_userdata\purrgatory and delete everything in the folder, replacing (Username) with your own username. That should fix it.

Thank you so much! it worked! :)

yay!

I think this is the best visual novel I have ever read. You did good :)

Possible spoilers below in the replies tho :)

I love endings like the one you used, always have. It leaves everything open to imagination. While it does suck that there's not a part two (how could I not want one? I love all the characters and the story as a whole), I do still think it was the best choice to give a definitive "goodbye" instead of a "the end?" People are all too afraid to close the book. But if Niv wanted to continue, I don't think I would be opposed to that haha

I read a lot of visual novels, and I genuinely mean it when I say this is up there in one of the best, if not the best. I love each one of the characters, everyone is very 3 dimensional, and I absolutely love that you can make your main character be more you. Not just with pronouns, but also with the whole flashback idea, the ability to come up with a character that feels more yourself is absolutely wonderful, and I feel like it should be put into more games, definitely.

The only complaint I have with the vn is that it ended, that's all. It's perfect in every way and I think people need to take notes, especially when it comes to writing characters.

thank you so much <3

i loved this game so much the ending i got is so sweet im crying i love this so much i love all the characters aaaa this is def one of the best games ive ever played! :)

glad u enjoyed :)

im gonna beat oliver in tic tac toe you cant stop me

good luck :0

I enjoyed the characters quite a lot, but not so much the wandering around and getting turned around at times when the view direction changes, so I got lost a lot of the time trying to vaguely remember where I was supposed to go. I also got the worst ending apparently. :(

I'm sorry about that! There's a map at the bottom of this page if it would help! https://nivrad00.itch.io/purrgatory/devlog/277657/stuck-hints-solutions

HI there, would you like me to translate your game into Esperanto for free? I'm just looking to help the Esperanto community out by getting some more games into the language.

that sounds super cool, but i'll have to pass... due to a variety of factors, implementing a new translation is a lot of work on my part, and after finishing the spanish one i'm not eager to jump into another one. (and you might also be surprised by how long the purrgatory script actually is.) sorry!

(1 edit)

a bunch of the rooms say something like "there's nothing here, like the room hasn't been made" im very confused because last time i played the game, those rooms were there??? and some of the rooms look completely different, such as the room sean and elijah are in having a pole in the middle??? 

edit: i tried to redownload it and the mac download is gone. bit disappointed :/

you must have downloaded the demo by accident! it has a completely different storefront and set of downloads. the finished version of the game (the one you're on right now) never had a mac version. have you tried playing it in your browser instead?

yeah i downloaded the demo by accident-- thanks

i tried to play it on my browser and it says "WebGL not available"

aw heck, that's been happening to a lot of people. try google chrome and firefox, and if neither work, you might need to enable webgl. a quick google search will give u tutorials on that. sorry i couldn't help much more

its okay, thank you for your help-- from what ive played, the game is great!

i adore this game and the story so much, i savedd everyone the first playthrough!

i love kyungsoon, they're jus a whole vibe, and so relatable. i too, enjoy eating everything.


i cant wait to see more from you, and im off to play other games you've worked on!

ty!

I loved this game! It's really cute. I loved all the characters especially Oliver and Numa even though she scared me sometimes. Her crush on Kyungsoon was so adorable. And I enjoyed getting to know each character. I made an account just so I could comment how much i loved this game. Thank you for creating it. I also love how Sean talked about being able to go to heaven even though he's gay because that's something i've always been concerned about. I just hope that going to the afterlife will be just as comforting and wholesome as this game was!

Once again thank you for creating this lovely game <3

(+1)

ty!!

duuude. this is genuinely the best game i've ever played. every aspect of it is so interesting, the depth of each character's design, the description of each object you click on, it's all so cohesive and unique. purrgatory really is its own world, and that is absolutely amazing. i really really enjoyed my time playing this :3 (even though i heavily relied on the hints and solutions...) but from the 3d cat models to the meow piano, i think i've got the purrgatory blues!!!! (amazing song btw) idk what i'd give to experience this game for the first time again but i loved this with my whole entire soul <3

This game is so wonderful <3 I loved the art style, the characters, the story, the dialogue, the memes, SO MUCH WHOLESOME LGBTQ+ REP!!! I really felt invested in the characters and I'm only a little bit gay for natalie. okay I'm a lot gay for natalie.

I absolutely loved this, thank you so much for making it. I felt SO seen by the dialogue options (frickin,,,, "it me" at the end absolutely sent me) and I loved that I really felt like I was truly experiencing everything as myself. Unfortunately, myself has a very poor sense of direction, so I fumbled my way through the map throughout the game's entirety, constantly getting confused which doorway I just came from, but that would be my only nitpick. Overall this was immersive, wonderful, and adorable. Absolutely a 5/5.

Also, dragons!!!

ty!! So true bestie!!

ty!! So true bestie!!

where did y'all find the drawing on this wall lmao

BROO I AM SO OBSESSED WITH THIS GAME I ALMOST PLAY IT EVERY NIGHT ITS SO COMFORTING AND WHOLESOME

<3

this is such a fun game! i love all the characters :D

awesome :D

Hello, so I played this game in the browser version and everything was alright! Sure the saving took a bit of time but it was bearable! I enjoyed the game quite a lot but then the game crashed alongside my laptop. It made my laptop's screen go black and the music started to glitch out. I had to force shutdown my laptop but now I'm hesitant to continue playing it. Was it because of my saves that it crashed or was it because I was on the browser version? If so, is the windows version safe? I would just like to be sure because I don't want to be scared like last time. I still love the game from the characters I interacted with, them being the Reciptionist Lady, Kyongsoon, and Oliver. Thanks for your time!

aw heck, i'm sorry. i have no clue what caused that. typically the windows version runs smoother, so i think that would be a good thing to try, but i can't promise it'll make a difference. your laptop might just have trouble with this game, especially if it's an older one. sorry!

It's fine! Thanks for replying and informing me about it! Still hope any other developments run smoothly nevertheless!

I can't find the rest of the dig spots for tori, I even looked at the hits provided on this page and still have 13/16. Can anyone help?

(2 edits)

you have to look at everything including the hill near the area where the fence is if you go left, I'm pretty sure you should reach the hill (I had trouble finding that area)

it'll also hover the shovel over spots you need to dig up if you can't find where to dig

if you are still having trouble maybe look up a video if there are any?

check this video at 29:30 ;3

Thanks for the help, i figured it out!

yo its Neco! very cool gameplay

(+4)

It was an amazing experience. I had so much fun interacting with everyone! I almost squealed when I got to draw with Natalie! It was really nice meeting them one last time in heaven, a wholesome and satisfying ending. 15/10 would recommend.

(+1)

aww, very wholesome :)

so good c:

thank you for good game <3

u are welcome

i'm so incredibly emotional over this game! i lost track of time when playing because i was hella immersed. also the song at the end <3 <3 <3

<3

I LOBED IT!!!!! SM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! super super fun!!! the gameplay was super engaging, the dialogue was realistic and funny, i was at no point bored. i love love loved the characters (especially oliver <333), they were all very individual and engaging. ive played it all the way through once, and i saved six people (sorry natalie :<), but i for sure will play it again in the future!!!  my only issue was having to get around the house every time i had to go somewhere, but that just comes with how many different things you could do :D i really had an awesome time, and i hope you make similar games in the future!!! definitely would be looking out for them :]]]

ty!!! :]

OH MY GOSH!! This was amazing! My first playthrough, I didn't realize the whole character arc process, so I only saved 2 people. Luckily, that meant I got to play this amazing game TWICE!! I love the soundtrack, the characters, the art style, everything!! It's been a while since I've enjoyed a game as much as this. I got really connected + attached to all the characters,,,, ANYWAY! I'm totally gonna try to convince all my friends to play this too, it deserves a lot of hype! Plus, I wanna gush about my headcanons.. This game is a big 10/10 for me! Highly, HIGHLY reccomend to anyone and everyone! :D

ty!! yippee :3

no way i also drew yippee

completely cool. i played half the game in one day and just finished it today. had to take some hints but it's because i'm dumb in point-and-click games. loved the good ending. thanks.

ty!
