I Just Made an Acc to write for this. I adore the Artstyle and Characters soo much. Cant wait for the Rest of the Game!!! And Madhouse is bby. *COUGH*

I love this already, especially Madhouse. I can't wait for more. From the looks of it though, Madhouse doesn't seem to be one of the crushes. Either way, I'm going to enjoy every one of his scenes.


didn't finish playing it, but I can tell it's going to be AMAZING, Atlas is one of my favorite characters already!

Feels like I got a lot from this early build. Other VNs have a slower roll-out but an hour in CC and you already have a good idea about multiple characters, the dynamic between them.. the only thing really missing for me was the curse of the player's character... 

Looking forward to future builds & the combat. I hope we can fire things up with Jamie. :)

Is Jamie a male or a female?, can't say with that body... If they were a male "he" would definitely look hot.


Jamie doesn't have a set gender, but they don't really mind how they're perceived!

Will this VN have NSFW?


No, Cryptid Crush will not have NSFW content

Oh, ok. 

The art is absolutely gorgeous and I'm really into the dice rolling and soon-to-be combat elements! It's really fun and unique!


i dont have a winzip acc

This is an absolutely wonderful game! I can't wait to see how the combat system will turn out, but I loved how you just threw us right into the story, and yet managed to develop the characters so well! I mean, I actually felt bad for Mike, even considering what he had done moments prior. I look forwards to future updates.


Hi, I would love to translate your demo for free, if you are interested please text me to my Discord: Kuri Videos#4398

I like it, also it gives me mad S.U vibes


gtfzxcfzxcfgtxczgtfxzcgfxzcgfxzxzcgfxgcfxgfctgxfctxgftxgctfxghfgxcfxgcfxgrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I banged my head on my keyboard

uh i don't think that's heathy


Overall this is definitely a really good demo. The art style is really great, the character design is top tier, and the voices really suit the characters. My only real complaint is that it would've been better if you'd fully implemented the battle instead of just cutting to the aftermath and told us to just imagine an epic fight scene. You know, show don't tell.

I really liked the demo. So far all the characters are quite enjoyable and have unique personalities. The visuals, the special effects and also the subtle voice acting make this story so much more captivating to read. Definitely curious to know how the MC met Atlas when they first moved into Longhope; guess the full version might answer that!


Omg Atlas Moth is best Moth. 

will the final version of this game be free or paid access? just wondering because im unable to pay for a game and i would love to play this game to its full. the game is great and really interesting, the dice roll mechanic is neat but a little rng, but that isnt bad at all. i love this game demo and everything is just so well executed. good job devs!


Everything about the demo was absolutely amazing =^-^=
I loved the artwork, the music and I really loved the story so far! Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see more! :3

Only seven hours after launch, a d all this love for the game. Can't wait to see it for myself


Haven't found a better place to post this, so apologies if this is misplaced.  Unable to download PC Demo version, getting error listed below:

Hi! So we looked a little into it, and it seems to be a problem with Itch.io, so we'd recommend either trying again or contacting itch.io support

Will do!  Thank you for the quick response!

I am still crying.

This is adorable! I love all the characters and art and music and voice acting! Amazing job!


neat game


Gosh, I've only played for a few minutes and I'm thoroughly charmed! Can't wait to sink my teeth in.
