  • A simulated text conversation between 2 people has been done many times.
  • Having said that, I felt like I was reliving a real life conversation between the developer and his girlfriend, a conversation they’ve had many times before. It felt more like I was reading someone’s diary than playing a game. i.e. So this is what life is like for this poor student. Ouch.
  • I like the fact their may be no way to win!
  • While it didn’t seem to fit, I laughed at the strange threat
  • “… or you will feel like a pathetic brown smelly thing afterwards”

Technical Achievement: 7

  • Based on my several attempts, there actually appears to be LESS to this game than meets the eye.
  • There seems to be a very limited amount of conversation, and it seems to follow the same branches.

Overall: 6

  • Hopefully, the developer is able to find that magic balance of girlfriend and work.

Comments:

  1. Don’t show my “emotion number”. There’s no point. This ruins the intimacy of the conversation and reminds me I’m playing a game. The only thing this game has going for it is the intimacy. The number ruins that. To me, it’s not about “beating the game”, it’s about having a conversation.
  2. So far I’ve yet to have time for work AND the girl… AWESOME.
  3. Sometimes I’m presented with these 6 choices: 1:Fine 2:I’m sorry, I really am. 3:Good bye. 4:Fine 5:Good bye. 6:I’m sorry, I really am.
  4. While I know it’s a bug, it seemed to show just how confused this poor man is.
