very cute game, i absoloutely adore the characters! The art style is also incrediable, it sort of gives me Tim Burton and Fran Bow vibes 

Oh man, I love visual novels, this one really draws me in to the story and the character. I'm so bummed that this was a demo and I didn't get the full experience. If you guys can let me know when the game is out that'll be great!

Tried out your game...

This was awesome! I want more! The characters are great, the ambiance is chilling and scary, and the story feels amazingly crafted! I look forward to the full release!

im bad with jumpscares is there jumpscares just wanna know before i play

yes I believe there is 

I didn't meet any jumpscare while i played

Hey, this looks really cool. are there any plans for a Mac version?

This was a very good game. It reminded me of doki doki. i guess cause I haven't played a lot of graphic novels. the story has a lot of potential. I honestly cant wait to see the end of it.



I hope there is more to the story!!!!


Wow, this has got to be the creepiest visual novel I can remember reading. Really good job with the atmosphere, music, and sound effects. I also really like the art style and animations, too. Looking forward to the full release! Keep up the awesome work! :3

This really looks promising! The art is unique and setting is awesome. Can't wait for the full release. 

I can't wait for the rest of this! This had pretty good pacing for a visual novel (I feel like others drag a lot more). I'm hooked and ready for the full release :3

The atmosphere was so spooky, it really made me feel like something could jump out at me at any second! 

The artwork and sound effects were so cool too - I can't wait to see the full release 😊

Holy. I didn't expect such a nice horror game. It was beautiful. The simple yet unnerving world, the art which looks unique, and the usage of perspective is amazing. I was ready for jump scare at any moment because of how atmospheric it is. Waiting for the full release.

Btw ignore the thumbnail.

I really enjoyed this demo, and I look forward to seeing the full visual novel released. I love the amount of animation in the demo, the art is so pretty and polished, and the story is intriguing.

I really like where this game is headed! Can't wait for the full release!

Game's ok as it is and the idea behind the game's really interesting to say the least. Overall, not a bad game.

Here's my channel for other games I have played. http://www.youtube.com/c/Levont

This demo only served to leave me wanting more! Excellent writing and stylish visuals make The Elevator Game with Catgirls stand out from other visual novels. I look forward to the game’s full release. Very well done! 

I really enjoyed the demo version ! I love the art style and love how eerie the story becomes ! I am looking forward to the full release of this game and what will happen next !

love the gameplay and the creepy atmosphere that this game gives off  cant wait for the full release 

I love the looks and the style of the characters.

so sweet ..hope look full story


Sweet demo, knew I needed to play it right meow as soon as I saw the title. It's got tension in spades and I'm preparing myself for cat-astrophe, definitely gonna pick up that full release (the characters are a little uninspiring so far though imo). 

Gameplay if you're interested!:

Very good game, I look forward to the official version

HELLO just wanted to say this was a cool little demo; of course I love "VN" so I'm a bit bias ig. Also there is a slight issue; whenever you move the mouse (& of course this might be just my shitty pc) the snow stutters so idk what's going on there but other then that it's a cool product/demo. 

omg even though this was just the demo i was really getting into it , this is so interesting!! i am loving it so far , keep up the amazing work! cant wait for the full release 

I like it

A really cool game! The look of it is amazing, it has cute elements but is overall so eerie!
I can't wait see more and am excited to see what will happen inside!

Gave it a Let's Play!


Thoroughly loved the atmosphere from the get go when entering the game, combination of black & white background with the snow visual effects makes an eerie, ominous environment. Loved the demo & looking forward to the full game! ^o^ 

I love this demo! The story is engaging & the atmosphere & pacing were executed so well. The art style, music, & sound effects added a lot to the experience as well. I was so immersed! I also really liked how Kirin went into the elevator first, not Asahi. It really built up suspense. I can't to see what this game has to offer in its full release! Wonderful job!

Can't wait to play the rest of the story :)

I love the art style. followed and waiting for full release of the game :) 

all positive feedback in video.

Amazing game dev :D 

Super good stuff! I hope to see full release soon.
