Description of the game:
ValiDate is a visual novel about thirteen struggling singles navigating 9-5 year old crises, quarter-life crises, and the hard truths millennials learn as soon as they hit their 20s. Located in the Jercy City area, our group of lovers traverse the underworld of capitalism – a journey, a transition – a rite of passage that leads to uncertain adulthood. On one side but not yet out on the other, 13 playable characters find romance among cosplay, trashy mixtapes, and even poetry straight from the soul. With over 30 routes to choose from and hours of content, the lives of these singles are in your good (or bad!) decision-making hands.
