Have a chat and work on your relationship in We should talk. out now

Spin the conversation wheel of fortune in the short-form narrative game We should talk. that's out now with Linux support. Released after a successful Kickstarter campaign, it's nice to see more experimental games that try to push the boundaries in different ways like this.

We should talk. is certainly a game that's quite intriguing, with a pretty unique speech feature that has you construct your answers in conversations with multiple parts you can switch around. Quite clever actually, I've not really seen such a feature used often at all. You're only usually given specific whole things to say but this is designed to get you to slow down, think things through and practice some social skills all while listening to some rather chilling tunes in a bar with friends. This is the Nintendo Switch trailer but ah—it's all the same and it's the latest one:

It's very much like a visual novel and a dating sim together. If you usually enjoy those sorts of experiences, then We should talk. is likely something you will also find interesting. The idea here really, is that it wants to make it a bit more natural. Games often want you to bring a gift to someone or do the exact thing they need, here it's more about digging a little into the conversation and the person in front of you or behind the text message.

Depending on who you chat with, and how you decide to treat your current girlfriend over text message, you will get to different endings. Your relationship might not last the night…

Need to talk? Pick it up on Steam and itch.io for £5.19 / €5.69 / $6.99.

The only other game that I have played that has the player construct interactive sentences is Oh...Sir!! The Insult Simulator. The purpose of the conversation in these games is totally different (insulting someone vs. establishing relationships), but this looks like a game I would really enjoy. Added to Wishlist!
