A romance torn between school life and mysterious spirits!

Born into a religious family, Lin Tian-Liao left his hometown and moved to Taipei to study and follow his dreams, trying to escape the pressures of returning to his family’s temple in the process. His ordinary college life seemed to be going well until suddenly one day his third eye was opened. Liao, now able to see the various spirits and gods in the world, has to deal with his new found powers, his school life, and three particular cats who all want to have a say in his life and his future. 

Nekojishi is a visual novel about the pressures and consequences of deciding your future in a world of gods and spirits, the position that religion and folklore take in modern society, and three feline beast-men that Liao can’t seem to get out of his room or out of his head!

Note: Nekojishi features same-sex romances and cute cat dudes.

Hi there! I just last night finished playing through your Visual Novel. I had downloaded it about a month ago but a lot of things kept me so busy I never got around to actually finishing it. Last night, I pretty much marathoned the entire story, getting all 12 endings. I want to fist say I absolutely loved the story. I did notice the occasional typo here and there but it was nothing that took away from the enjoyment of the story itself. You made quite a wonderful story, and I loved the characters in it. I was sad with some endings and happy with others. Currently, I have the main story and the Limited Edition patch, but I'm also considering picking up the Expansion as well.

Overall, it was an amazing story, and I loved reading it so much that I wanted to ask a question. I do a lot of Let's Plays of games and visual novels on my Youtube channel. I found it so enjoyable that I wanted to ask if it would be alright for me to do a Let's Play of Nekojishi. I would of course fully credit you and link to your page here, as I do with all visual novels I cover. I know there have been others that have covered it on Youtube, but I would like permission to do so if I may as well.

Thank you for your time, and for creating a truly amazing story. As a side note, of the three, Leopard Cat (Shu-Chi Yan) is probably my favorite character of the three,  with Guardian Tiger (Lin Hu) and Clouded Leopard (Likulau) being too close to my liking to say I like one over the other.

I hope how good the game can be a mobile Android version

I've only played through a couple times, so I've only seen two endings. How many are there total? Based on the two I've seen, it doesn't feel like a "one per character" sort of thing.

There are indeed many endings. Check the gallery to make yourself an idea...

Having just recently downloaded the story myself, and marathoned all the endings last night, I can confirm there are multiple endings. There are a total of 13 of them.

There is a Steam community page with an optimized route (using game saves) to allow you to access all endings. The wording on the choices in it differs from how it appears in the game, which I can only assume is because it's translated differently, but, having used it myself, I can confirm that the choices to pick are still clear enough for you to know which ones you need in the novel. Just google search Nekojishi endings guide and click the Steam Community link.

Is this game still in development or no?

Hi there! Nekojishi was completed in 2017 with a DLC pack released in 2018. If you want to keep up to date with our current projects in development follow us on Twitter!

Android version please


Android version would be keen.

(SPOILER(pleas note that this comment is typed with a tiny bit of rage, a few drops of disappointment, and a gallon of earnest emotion) Yesterday i got the Nekojishi expansion pack: A Sunny Day and completed it the same day and loved all of it up until the end when Shu-Chi has his paws out in front of someone named grandpa and there is a bright light and he is crying and then it ends and i thought "Hmmm maybe there is more or i missed an update or something like that so i search around and find nothing and so now i am really confused and frustrated because you cant leave a cliff hanger like that i mean i get a cliff hanger that is small enough for the reader or in this case player to interpret the ending but this is just to big so pleas make a post or a second game that helps wrap it up because i am so confused. other than that great game love it to bits.   


Pretty please android pretty please


this got said before but please please please release an android apk

i love this game very much


Hey Orange Juice Dog

I write here for the first to say that I love Nekojishi, and im a big fan of your work, simply could not stop when I first got started with it, everything is so well done and i must say it brought many tears to my eyes.

and love the expantion that you made, to give the game just a little more finishing touch to it.

but the reason I write here is to hear if you have plans to make more games, whether it is something with the nekojishi world or something else? just want to hear if you were going to make more games, because you make heartwarming games, that i would love to see more of.


Thanks for enjoying our game! We're definitely working on something new that we hope to be able to share with everyone in the coming months. Best bet to keep up to date is to follow our Facebook (facebook.com/nekojishi) and Twitter (@NekojishiTW) for all the latest announcements! 

I will look forward to that, and that I will

Hi there, these CG's are a part of the Nekojishi Expansion Pack: A Sunny Day which you can buy here. (https://ojdog.itch.io/nekojishi-expansion-pack) For spoiler reasons it would be appreciated if you remove the images from your post since this appears right under the game and contains an image from right at the end of the game! Thanks for your interest. Feel free to email us at nekojishitw@gmail.com if you have any further questions!

Thank you very much for replying, and it's all good now for the spoilers.


Thanks for being a champ and removing the spoilers! Hope you enjoyed the game! 😺

Hi, is there going to be an Android version? I'd like to see that alot. I would then support you. 

I don't own a pc yet, sadly even so I am not that young... If not I have to wait then.


Hi there, unfortunately there is no Android version planned at this time. However, the game is playable on pretty much any Windows, MacOS or Linux computer.  Hope you'll be able to play it one day! 👏

One day, yes. I am looking forward to it ;)

Thanks for the answer anyways.

I want help I play Nekojinshi in Steam but with steam i dont play

 sex scene.

(1 edit)

Hi there, the original version of Nekojish is completely SFW and available both here and on Steam. Nekojishi will never have NSFW content unless you install the Limited Edition patch. Thanks for commenting, and let me know if there's anything else you need help with!

Pls make a android version...

I love that game <3 But will you make part two or something like that besides dlc? I would love to see more of Lin Hu <3

(1 edit) (-1)

Pls, help me. I can't play nekojishi anymore. Weill whenever I am in the hell part the game goes black and goes back to the start page. How to fix it? Or is this the game and xD😂? I think it isn't the end. It's a bug. But how can I fix it? 

First that as I awake in the cave:Than I click for the next text. Baaam I am at the start page. Why??

Bug help my please.

I have a video on Google drive for you. Please help me!! 

Link to the video with the bug: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XfNOMMFi0viooAu3bH68zvfvulLQCMvl/view?usp=drivesdk

Tell my with my email :



Hi there! That's the intended end of that particular route of the game so there's no bug. Try playing through the game again making different decisions and you'll see different endings. Hint: You can check the gallery on the main menu for an overview of all the endings available. 


But I see a YouTube video. A nekojishi gameplay. And the makes the same choices than me. But he hasn't this problem. And why is the game end in a cave? I wish my better ends for the next update. No ends in the middle of a game. 


My best guess would be that they must have made some other choices to you as there's another ending that has a similar scene but continues on past that point. If you need any help you can always try and look up a guide for the game. Hope that helps!

Thank you for your suggestion, but I also got on the idea about 2 days late.  Too bad is that there are so many sad endings and And some of the endings also let you get the feeling that the game is crashed or that the game is incomplete and unfinished. Overall, the game is really well done and has almost no improvement options. The only thing I would improve would be the endings not so fast and they don't mess you up like that. You have the feeling that the endings only goes a few minutes and the rest several hours. 

Nevertheless, my respect goes to the game manufacturers and helpers. Keep it up. 

Sorry for my english, but I come from Germanny and I am not so well in write English and speaking english. I hope my English is Okey and you can accept my English skills.


When will the android version is out?? I wanted to play it in my phone


I wish it could be available on android


same. I played it on pc and i'd love to have it mobile like all the other good VN.

How do I install the game o Windows 10? I have the .zip file downloaded and extracted, but I can't open the Application. (also I downloaded Direct X)

Hi LionFang! Could you give me some more details? Is there any error code that appears when you try to open the game?

It's unlikely on Windows 10 but there's a chance you might not have Python installed on your computer. (You can download the latest version of python from https://www.python.org

So question In the end SPOILER ALERT IF YOU DIDNT READ YET BTW if you dont stay with tiger you die? like what? 


Hi there! We suggest you finish all the endings first! 🤫


Hey, Quick question,  are there nsfw scenes withOUT LE version?


There are no NSFW scenes in Nekojishi unless you download the Limited Edition patch. The Limited Edition is also considered a non-canon bonus version  if that matters to you! Thanks for your question!


thanks for the answer!


orange jiuce dog are you or team nekojishi is making this game available on android phones? i actually saw on youtube that many people are requesting it to be compatible on phones


Hi there! We've considered porting the game to mobiles based on player feedback, however we have no plans to do so currently. If we were to do it, we'd want to do it right, and that would include remaking all the UI to work with a touchscreen. Thanks for your input!

is this the LE version?

also great game!

You can find a link to download the LE version in the description. Thanks for your interest!

(1 edit)

can we use the Itch.io app to install this? it comes unzipped to your pc, I just added it to the game files

(1 edit) (+2)

Im very confused on how to install the LE version with the game i have a windows computer


The instructions in the readme pretty much cover it. Extract the .rpa file and copy it to the /game folder within the base game files. Let me know if you need any more help! 

Hello. I followed what was written on the read me, but I can't have the NSFW scene. I can easily find where they should happen but impossible unlock them. I first download the original game, then download the NSFW patch. I copied the .rpa to the /game file, and I got the warning for NSFW, but no Scene ^^'. 

Can you help me ?


If the limited edition patch is installed correctly you should see a red "L" or a green "S" on the main menu. Clicking this will toggle between the Standard and Limited versions. Double-check that the main menu has the red "L" displayed.

Oh, found it ! Thank you :3


Hello. I wanted to ask if you can install the limited edition mod on the Steam version of the game without problems. Thank you.

Walkthrough? No video/YouTube walkthroughs  please.


Hi Unique! While we don't have any guides for the game (that would spoil things for new players), there are a bunch of community guides on our Steam page. Thanks for your interest! > https://steamcommunity.com/app/570840/guides/#scrollTop=157


Hi, I only have an Android tablet, are there any talks to make an .apk for this game? I'd love to play it.


can you please make it playable for dell computer? that would be great because i dont have a mac or a pc:(


Hi there! Nekojishi runs on Windows XP or higher and MacOS, (or Linux if you have some know-how.) While your computer may be manufactured by Dell, but it should be running Windows and you should be fine to download and play the game. Thanks!

Holy crap. I just got the perfect ending after downloading the patch, this is awesome. I didn't expect the twist at the end that -spoiler bleep- is the true villian, right after we all got led to believe it was -another spoiler bleep- . Great artwork for every single one of the endings, NFSW or not. Good storywriting as well, I really did enjoy this and unlocking all the endings is worthwhile if you play this, I plan on buying the expansion once I get some cash.


Creator  of the game should  make this game  mobile  for phones

tak jestem za.
