So what’s We should talk. about?
Using a unique narrative choice mechanic, you’ll craft sentences in response to the in-game characters in We should talk. Through this careful choice of words, you’ll be able to express yourself as you discuss ongoing problems about life and romance with Sam, your in-game partner, over text messages, while also chatting with friends and strangers at your favorite local bar about what’s on your mind.
The combination of words you choose impacts the conversations you have, how genuinely you can connect with your partner, and whether your relationship can survive the night. It’s up to you how you respond—depending on how you communicate, you’ll see one of many possible endings.
