Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Facade - Making awkward conversation with virtual people

People have been trying to come up with dynamic conversations in games for a while. It sounds neat, but it's also hard, because really, it's hard to come up with a response for everything someone could say. Oblivion had it, sort of, with it's bizarre chatter between NPCs!

However, the best example of this is a game called Facade. It's billed as an 'Interactive Story', and it's something about a couple that you, the player are visiting and they have issues with each other. I guess there might be a way to make them make up, but I've never tried that. It's more fun to just annoy them until you get kicked out. Like so!
Spoiler:
So as you can see, this game is... weird. Also super awkward. But it's also free, and I'm interested to see what things you guys come up with in this! Feel free to post the stage plays or record the actual game or whatever.

Download Facade here!

    When playing, play as "Mary" and ask him to call you Maria. Remind him constantly that you want to be called Maria.

    I helped them reconcile their differences by flirting with Grace and taking her side at all times.

    it's a lot like heavy rain in that it works really well if you don't try to deviate from the script

    but when you do, boy howdy

    They didn't want to play Clue. Why am I even friends with these people?
