A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Pre-order Now$20.00 USD or more

**Currently the only way to preorder the game is through itch.io. You will still receive the digital soundtrack for free, just like kickstarter backers!

**Content warning at the bottom!

The Second Demo (2019) Features:

  • Completely brand new scenes for each love interest + CGs
  • New UI, new music, autoplay function
  • 7 CGs 
  • Bonus art!

You do not need to play the first demo to understand this one. Made in preparation for PAX West 2019, the second demo is intended to be a much shorter play through than the first demo, and showcases scattered snippets of events beyond the first demo. Go on a museum sorta-date, bake cookies, woo a cat, and offer to be a blood bag because at least that way you won't be alone. 

Make sure to unzip the .zip files and extract them before trying to run the game! For Mac, if you're having trouble running it, try dragging the executable directly into Terminal.) While there is an Android version provided by request, it's not indicative of a final product and may have glitches and heavy memory cost, and we recommend a computer version to play instead. If you have any tech problems or feedback, comment below or email us at olivinearc@gmail.com ♡

The First Demo Features:

  • 60k+ words total
  • 6 "routes" + 4 unique endings
  • Rated 17+ for mature language and topics (see end of info for spoilers)
  • 1 CG (it's Madison's, but you can play any route)

Halloween is the perfect time to have fun, dress up, and not notice anything odd about the fangs in a hot stranger's mouth. And honestly?  Diana is here for all of that. Unsatisfied with her social, romantic, and academic life, she figures she can at least solve the first two at the party she's been invited to.

Instead, she ends up breaking her heels, making bad puns, taking cute photos, playing matchmaker, and fighting for attention from the obligatory party cat throughout the night before everything goes horribly, horribly wrong. Because, well. Something has to give besides the heels.

Softly, With Teeth as a whole is a coming-of-age romance visual novel that combines vampires with Faustian lore and an urban fantasy aesthetic, and explores the aftermath of someone's life once even the most significant of changes settle into routine. People always desire more than what they have, after all, but what lengths will they go to to achieve it?

For all demos, all assets including art, music, and choreography may (and have) change at a later time. A list of known bugs is here.


This game is about vampires. Demo includes drinking, innuendo, blood and violence (vampire bite), discussion of non-consent relating to vampire bite, occasional situations where protagonist is distinctly and rightfully uncomfortable, but also a consensual bite too.

If this has been canceled like backers are saying, why does it still say pre-order for $20.00 :/


per their latest kickstarter update, the game is officially canceled. if you're a backer you can view the post here (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/483356923/softly-with-teeth-a-vampire-otome...) it seems life had many challenges for everybody involved (understandable) and it just became too expensive to continue. 

is there any news on the game? last twitter update was a year ago... 

Will the game be availabe on steam?

Man, I'm really hyped for this.


I’m really sorry to bother you with this. Especially since you warn against it. But I really have no choice because this is all I have. 

Do you have any recommendations on what to use to access the Android versions? Like an app or something to “unzip” them. 

I’m sorry again! And thank you if you have the time to help me! I’m really looking forward to hopefully playing both of your demos though

The first demo(2018) works on joiplay if that's what you want.

Super late response, but you could unzip with Zarchiver or the Files apps by Google.

Hi, I'm obsessed with everything in this demo and have been checking in for any updates for a while now, however it looks like this information is only available to kickstarter backers. I follow you on twitter, but is there anyway to stay up to date on how things are going/ your future plans?

Hi there! Thank you so much for liking the game!! We recommend subscribing to the Softly, with Teeth updates channel on the dev's Discord! That way when something does happen, you'll be pinged even if you're not a kickstarter backer!

I can't open the demo on mac

We're really sorry about that! The demo can have trouble with different Mac updates, even when ran properly through the terminal. We've been working on a solution and continue to do so, so hopefully you'll be able to play soon! Thank you very much for your support! :D

thank you

Eeeeh, I think i can put it in my "dead project" collection...


You shouldn't! :) We just keep updates to the kickstarter backers, we had an update last week.



So happy to hear this! Thanks for the heads up ^^

i can't figure out how to run the 2018 demo on mac, any tips/clearer instructions?

Any news on this game ?


So excited for this game; I keep checking to see if there's any news - where can we find updates on the game?
