Nekopara Vol.0 is a "fandisc" visual novel published by NEKO WORKs and localized by Sekai Project. Unlike the original Nekopara Vol.1, this game was rated as R-15 in Japan and contains no adult content in any version of the title.
As the title would suggest, this game is a prequel of the original. The entire game takes place over one day shortly before the events of the first game, showcasing a typical day in the life of the daughter of the Minaduki household and her catgirls.
Nekopara Vol.0 is a "kinetic visual novel" in that the only player interaction is clicking or pressing the space bar to advance the dialogue. There is no player choice involved at all and the story will play out exactly the same every time through the game. This game has added a function to allow the player to pause the game at almost any time and enter "petting mode". Any of the characters can be rubbed on their heads or other areas which typically elicits a cute reaction from the girl. Dialogue can be set to automatically advance at the end of a spoken line or advanced at the player's discretion. All characters are fully voiced.
