“Do you want to improve your romantic prowess? Learn the ins and outs of dating?” asks Kitty Powers, the love guru at the heart of new dating sim, Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker. Kitty won’t actually be giving players tips on how to impress the lady, lad or otherwise identified human of their dreams, but under her guidance we will be able to pair up other hapless suitors and send them on dates.
Will your matches stick together like superglue and cotton wool? Or will it end in total heartbreak and disaster? That entirely depends on you and your matchmaking prowess (or lack thereof) but either way, you’ll get a good laugh from trying. Watch the Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker launch trailer after the break.
Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker Out Now
As explained by the game’s launch trailer (via the medium of rudey jokes), Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker involves three key steps: making matches with the help of Kitty’s little black book, choosing the scene for their date and then helping them get through those dates with minor embarrassments.
Kitty’s clients set their preferences based on gender (some are looking for same or opposite gender partners) while others are looking for someone who’s into the same things that they are, pretty simple stuff. Date venues include places like hair salons and restaurants and the mini-games are about as random as it gets, though you will unlock more locations, agency upgrades and the clients will become more demanding the more you play. Lots of things to juggle, but the balance between management sim/dating proper looks to be spot on.
Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker also has an endless amount of clients to match up which makes it highly unlikely that you’ll meet the same gay, green-haired, blue-eyed TV presenter twice. You can however, put your friends into the game and set them up on dates too.
Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker is now available on Steam with a 25% launch discount.
