ValiDate: Struggling Singles in your Area is a visual novel about thirteen struggling singles navigating through soul-sucking 9-to-5s, quarter-life crises, and the harsh truths millennials learn as soon as they hit their 20’s.
Set in the Jercy City area, our cast of lovers trudge through the dregs of capitalism - a journey, a transition - a rite-of-passage that leads into uncertain mid-adulthood. On one side but not yet out on the other, 13 playable characters find romance amongst cosplay, trash 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.
ValiDate is Rated M for Mature. This game contains mentions and references to drugs, alcohol, sexual assault, cheating, abuse, and other harsh themes. Viewer discretion is advised.
hey there ! i just purchased your game, unfortunately i can't even seem to open it :/ once the beginning credits are shown, i'm sent to the loading screen but it just keeps on loading forever.. i've tried restarting my computer 3 times but unfortunately it still won't work :(
i also read the instruction given to the mac players on the download page but i didn't really get what they meant.. please help me TT
(by the way i own a macbook air from 2016 and i'm on version 12.6 of mac os)
Hey, so I bought this game on Xbox, and honestly I'm a bit confused. I played Malik as my main character, and I only have 5 date choices I thought it would be possible to date everyone( becuse Im trying to do all the male routes- like arahia to keaton) but it seems like Im totally locked out??? . also on Xbox its constantly on trial mode
Hi, you have an option to play as Malik, Inaya, Isabelle and Emhari in the first volume. Each character has 5 dating/friend options and an Intro and an Epilogue route with a total of 7 routes per character in a linear story-telling format. Malik and Inaya are initially unlocked and you have to play through Malik’s intro to unlock Isabelle’s routes, and Inaya’s intro unlocks Emhari’s routes.
The remaining 9 characters will be unlockable in future DLCs

Mac owner here, excited to play this when I am able now that I have it! Currently my macbook is pretty old and using later OS causes it to have issues, and unfortunately it appears that the game is not compatible with the macOS 10.12.4 I have as it requires 10.13 or later. Still glad to have this game for now.
I got the same error. If you hit skip when you start the game it'll just load forever on a black screen. For anyone else who gets this error it's your extractor! If you get this error your extractor can't handle the number of characters in the file. I'm on a PC and I downloaded Bandizip (free) on the Microsoft Store and it was able to unzip the file with no errors.
Hi! I was super excited for this game I've been following you guys on twitter for months. I have a mac and when I went to download the game, i opened the zip file and just got a folder labeled "Contents" that had i guess all the background stuff from the game (im not super familiar with all the terms and stuff) but there wasn't an icon or thing to click on for me to play the actual game?
I tried deleting it and reinstalling it but the same thing happened so hopefully there's something i can do about this? I'm really looking forward to playing!
Hello! I haven't played the game yet (probably going to wait for a sale) but I want to say that I love the artstyle of the game. You guys have this 'uneven-thickness' outline thing going on that gives it a rough-edged, more grounded feeling which seems to work super well with the messages and themes of your game!
The background art is pretty impressive to me too if it was all drawn by y'all - that supermarket shot is wild in that its a bunch of weird vector geometric shapes that still look very cohesively like a supermarket aisle.
The chibi-style art looks super cute too and I want to congratulate you all on having such a consistent and distinctive looking game! I look forward to checking out the writing and other stuff soon.
