Amorous is a Freeware, Furry, Romance-type H-Game created by Jasonafex, with artwork and character designs by Kabier. Set in a fictionalized version of Miami (or any other city), you play a recent college graduate who's still waiting on replies for a job interview. Unfortunately, you've lost touch with your old friends in high school, and the only company you have is your half-brother, who's always disappearing off to club Amorous every night. The solution? Go join him and see what the fuss is about! Hell, you might get lucky and pick up some new phone numbers while you're there.

The game features nine dateable charactersnote , all with branching storylines: Jax, Seth, Coby, Skye, Dustin, Mercy, Zenith, Remy, and Lex.

You can download it on, and it was released on Steam on April 14, 2018.

Amorous provides examples of:

  • Attention Whore: Jax. His mixing talents - along with his stripperiffic uniform - makes him extremely popular at the club, though his boss doesn't care much for his showboating.
  • Bland-Name Product: During on of the dates with Skye, you visit a video game store and the player character can look at and comment on several games with familiar sounding names, usually combinations of the names of two real games.
  • Character Customization: You can choose between several body types for your character and customize your pronouns.
  • Closet Geek: One of the stock body types for your character is Fernando the Closet Furry, who's a human with a paper bag on his head.
  • Color-Coded Emotions: Jax changes color depending on his emotions; Blue is his default state, purple when he's embarassed or flustered, and red when he's mad.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: Skye is a furry equivalent of a cosplayer.
  • Dark and Troubled Past:
    • Jax is very distrusting of men and suffers from an insecurity complex as a result of being in an abusive relationship with another man. The crux of his storyline depends entirely on the player trying to win Jax's trust.
    • Zenith is a former police officer who quit out of guilt from getting his partner killed.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Let's see... we have a Camp Gay stepbrother who's into crossdressing, in an open relationship with someone overseas, a frequent patreon of club Amorous, and flirts with (and also sleeping with) just about any man he sees. Surely he's not a stand-in for common furry stereotypes, right?
  • Featureless Protagonist: Neither the player's species or appearance are referenced by the other characters, although parts of them do show up during the sex scenes.
  • Flirty Stepsiblings: Your stepbrother Coby flirts with you frequently. It's up to the player whether to reciprocate or not.
  • Foreshadowing: If the player takes Jax to see a romantic comedy at the movies, he'll show discomfort about the sudden gay-pairing twist at the end. This is your first major hint that Jax has a personal issue with same-sex relationships.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Jax is a hybrid of a chameleon and a gecko.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: Your player character's past is mostly a blank slate - the only detail you're given is that you were adopted. It's up to the player themselves to fill in the gaps.
  • Non-Human Non-Binary: Lex the husky, who identifies and dresses as nonbinary.
  • Post-End Game Content: You won't get any additional story content after completing each date's path. However, clicking on their profile on your phone will enable you to do a "booty call", which will allow you to view their sex scene again.
  • Refuge in Audacity: If you admit to having sex with your stepbrother to your stepfather, he doesn't believe you.
  • Rule of Three: Every dateable character's storyline plays out in three acts, with the third date ending in sex. Averted with Coby, who's storyline only has one date, mostly because unlike they other candidates you've known each other your whole lives... Aaaaand Coby has been dropping some clear hints on you for a long while.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Seth will occasionally slip into this, given his vocation as a writer. However, it's not as bad as most examples of this tropes, so it's downplayed a little.
  • Schrödinger's Gun: Lex dresses androgynously until the second date. Whether they turn out to be male- or female-presenting changes depending on your choices.
  • Shout-Out: Skye's cosplay outfit and body paint are clearly references to Renamon, when the player first meets her. Later on her storyline, she shows up as Lucario.
  • Stripperiffic: Jax's work "uniform". It makes him very popular at Club Amorous, but it also attracts a lot of unwanted attention.
  • Unexpected Gameplay Change: Zenith's storyline contains a shooting minigame, when you go to a shooting range with him.
  • Where the Hell Is Springfield?: The city where Amorous takes place is never mentioned by name, but several clues seem to point towards the setting being somewhere in or around either Florida or California.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: It doesn't get much attention, but peeking into Coby's closet reveals that he likes to crossdress. The player character can also choose to crossdress.
  • Writer's Block: Seth suffers from this, and as a result, many of his works remain incomplete. The players helps him overcome this in his storyline.
