First Demo - 2/27/2019

Features the “First Chapter” of Love Shore and acts as a World/Character introduction to showcase the art, music and storytelling that will be present in the completed game.

  • Two main characters with completely unique, yet intertwining stories to choose from
  • Each character has four romanceable options
  • Rated R / 17+ for mature language, sexual themes, and violence. 

The demo of Love Shore is a work in progress, showcasing our team’s abilities to produce a story of this caliber. There are no save/load options but should take only 30 minutes to play both character introductions. There are an estimated 12 chapters per route estimated for the final game. 

Update! Alyosha's Route Demo - 9/6/19

A short demo of one of Sam's routes,  Alyosha! Featuring the first two chapters of Alyosha's route, this demo allows players to make choices that visually and thematically effect the storyline, such as the secret stat system and the character approval rating. New sprites, new UI, more music, illustrations and backgrounds! A chance to showcase how we're working hard towards our goal for Love Shore. Farah's demo is not far behind! 

Update! Imani's Route Demo - 11/11/19

Now including Imani's intro, this is the final Love Shore demo to be released before barreling ahead towards completing the game! New art, new UI, and more story! Thanks for playing.

Love Shore is a visual novel game that takes concepts we've always loved in sci-fi, action, and horror and blends them together to create something wild. It features a queer, diverse cast, a seemingly endless city, and a story of coming into yourself and doing what you think is right…with a heavy dose of drama and violence mixed in for good measure.

Install instructions

For Mac Users: If you are using the newest version of Mojave, there is a setting which will prevent you from opening the game demo, as it is classified as being from a 3rd party developer. This is very easy to fix, and the video linked below will help you to do this, please reach out to the Love Shore twitter (twitter.com/loveshoregame) if you are having issues with this! PC users should have no issue running the demo.

Anyone knows the progress of this game?

Went to their patreon to see some kind of updates but the latest post was on Dec '20.

Hopefully it's not abandoned and will be released this year!

(Was going to follow their Twitter but the contents weren't exactly about the game's development...)

Really excited for the full game - loved the demo! :D

That was too short!  I really liked the art style.  Very intriguing.  Can't wait for more.  Great start to it!


Thanks for being willing to provide the demo. Will you consider (as some devs have done for the racial justice bundle) to provide full release when available to Palestinian Aid supporters?


curious, do you have an estimation as to when this will be finished? really loving the story so far


according to steam, oct 2021


this demo is so nice!!! the art style and ui are beautiful, and i adore the use of color. the plot seems really fascinating!! and i'm already highkey in love with alyosha. i'm looking forward to the full release!!!!


Does getting this demo in the BTLM bundle also give rights to the full game once released? Demo was lit <3

I wonder the same thing.


retro wave forever ♥


Love the characters and the setting. The writing and artwork are stellar, all I have to say is keep up the good work. Thank you for your time and effort.


Oh I love the colour scheme it's stunning, characters look great also :o

Thank you!

This demo is so great !! I got an itch.io account just to play it ^^ good luck with the game !!


Very nice demo

i love the artstyle and the music. Beautiful backgrounds. Great and very detailed sprites and CGs.  

The story is good, too. It a bit reminds me of "Ghost In Shell". I like cyberpunk 

I just finished Frah's route. All the girls are sexy have nice and different personalities and styles.

Good luck with this project.

The demo is amazing! I can't wait for the full game! Backed and shared the KS, fingers crossed!

Thank you! We're so happy you enjoyed it!
