Love or Die

Game Description

Date or Die is a horror parody visual novel made as a fun and short Halloween game. You will play as a human transfer student who needs to find a date before the Halloween Dance at Tap School (taken from this website). But wait, turns out not all students who attend the school are humans! Vampires, witches, werecats and even zombies?! And what's with that weird voice in your head? Oh boy, oh boy, try not to get yourself killed before the fun part begins~

*there is a full screen option, but the image becomes slightly stretched

p.s. if you record a gameplay vid, please share, i'd really like to watch it! :D

Earned money will be donated to Vet Ranch - animal rescue organisation. 


People who kindly allowed me to include their personas (characters) in the game:

-- Friendly witch apprentice Yuu

-- Library zombie Echo

-- Cutie cat En

-- Your average bloodthirsty vampire Viryse


-- Story/art: Viryse (twitter: @viryse_art)

-- Title soundtrack: NPC

-- Other music: 

[Yuu] themeyandere modebad end

{Echo] themeyandere modebad end

[En] themeyandere modebad end

[Viryse] themeyandere modebad end

[Other] infirmary & gymentrance, classroom & halllibrarygood end

!!!Bug!!! [fixed]

There seems to be a problem in Yuu's route: when player makes a choice the text box doesn't show even though the game is proceeding. Right now I don't have the solution, but you can still read the text in the text log (you can access it by scrolling up with a mouse or a touchpad during the gameplay) if you're willing. I'm very sorry for the trouble!


[31.10.2017] Updated to v1.1! Fixed the large text bug in Yuu's route.

[01.11.2017] Updated the name due to request of another game developer who has a game with the same title. Fixed typos in En's route. Fixed Yuu's route text bug.

hola me intereso el juego y queria saber si esta en español?

Hello! Dunno if the creator of this game will see this but thanks! I play a lot of dating games, but too much fanservice is killing me. Needed something I could feel good playing.

I can REALLY tell you liked making this game. Almost felt less like a game and more like you sat down with me and are telling me a story where you ask me questions and tell me about what happens. Really fun! The kind of thing I need right now.

I haven't properly finished it yet, but I'll probably send a proper review when I do. Thanks for making this!

Hi, I think the file cannot run on my Mac(Big Sur, Version 11.0).

They're all such sweethearts, but Viryse is definitely my favourite. 

I wish the routes were longer.

I love cute games like this.

A Cute Little Visual Novel where you can choose what girl you spend time with different girls based on what option you choose, it is quite a wholesome novel, though i don't know how you die in this game, but that does mean i just picked the best choices, very wholesome. short and sweet

I did a playthrough on this novel for anyone that wants to see just one of the endings

this game looks cute! i love how this site is in black and red, then i also like how cartoony everything looks in the game. each girl is pretty unique which i like and the dialouge being written so carefree is fun to read, good work

I made a video of me playing the game. It was really fun and the game is really good!

to be honest the game looked fun and was alright but I just felt lazy the narration was poor with the emojis and there where not many sprites but other than that it was really enjoyable so I'm leaving a 4/5

I can translate your game into Spanish, if you wish.


i just started playing and it said there's no fan service can you fix that its a serious bug

Using the latest version of Mac OS Catalina, it's a shame it won't work.

I really want to try this game out, but the updated mac iOS doesn't let me run 32-bit applications. I know this is a pretty old game, but if you have the time and could update the game to 64-bit I'd really appreciate that.

omg this is so cool! i love viryse! shes so cuteeeee. i def love this! aslso what did you use to make this?


Really cute game!! UwU


Idea was interesting... but execution is, unfortunately, lacking.

Too long pauses, skip text not stopping on new text, narrator using emojis. That was enough for me to drop it at "Nah, I'm good" choice (that featured quite sudden game over).

The protagonist looks so sharp on the vampire costume

echo is just so cute i

Hello. I wanted to say that for some reason i can not play this on mac. Any help please?

i played this a long time ago and really enjoyed! Might try it again.

Found this through this video! I was surprised to see that this game was made three years ago! It’s a wonderful game and I loved all the art! Good Job! 


This is a really good game! Me and my friend just finished getting all of the endings! This was totally worth our time! ^^ <3

After I drink Yuu's tea the screen turns red and I can't interact with anything, not even the load button. Is this supposed to happen?


Am I the only one who is replacing the he or him pronouns with her or she instead

A lovely little VN.


The art is simple yet clear. Suits the theme you're going for. May I ask, what was the most challenging aspect of working on this visual novel? Was it creating all the art or something else entirely?


i would say yuu and echo are best girls but they just seriously disturb me.

how do i open up the game? can you please help me.

I may have died twice to Yuu, but to me she is best girl!

The final entry, this was great.


It was short but realy funny, and I love it

Waitttt our player, is it a girl or boy???

the protagonist doesn't have a determined gender. you can assign your own if you want.


in my opinion all the other characters are not as good as Viryse. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST CHARACTER. 100/10. love it and i hope there is another part coming soon! (no rush tho take your time <3) an amazing game like this takes time so dont rush plz! <3


crush you like berry


fuck you


what a game! I really loved what you did with Echo and Viryse as characters. Keep up the great work! this game is nothing short of splendid.

Quite a comfy and a short visual novel. I have got all of the endings, worth a try and nice to play. The design and graphics were great! Continue doing what you are doing.


does it matter\

i really can't ignore the fact that it looks so much like doki doki literature club so freakin obvious 


one of my viewers asked me to play this on my channel, So far I love it!!!


First death. I'm not sure if it crashed the game or not but here's part 2!


Whats this,3 months later is episode 3?


the final entry

Super cute game! 
Viryse was my favorite character, especially her design! 
I'm a bit hesitant to ask if cosplay is okay for this game since I think some characters are based on real people. Either way, I enjoyed playing it!

(1 edit)

Wow! That was fun!  I was greatly surprised, it might be a bit short, but so many choices to explore! 

I cannot stop going back to see all the bad/good ends! 

Really loved it! ヽ(o♡o)/ 

When breaking the 4th wall, the narrator is funny!   

Great job!  (^_^)b

And the arts so "Kawaii" !!!! 

I WANT MORE!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!  (^人^)
