Onafhankelijke studio Stout Games laat spelers ‘iemands onderbewuste’ spelen in Diner Date. We toonden al eerder de trailer van deze unieke productie. Lees het volledige Engelse persbericht na de klik.
The independent developer STOUT GAMES announces the release of „DINNER DATE”. In Dinner Date the player becomes the subconsciousness of Julian Luxemburg and is privy to his thoughts as he is waiting for his date. The game may now be downloaded from the Stout Games website.
A month after STOUT GAMES released a trailer for its début drama „DINNER DATE”, in which the theme of a man waiting for his date was introduced, the good news comes that his wait may finally be over: the game is now available for purchase & download. The perfect preparation for a date seen in the trailer – the joy of anticipation and the build-up of a cuisine that will surely woo the beautiful girl – falls short when the beautiful girl does not show up. Becoming the subconsciousness of Julian Luxemburg one will be listening in on his inner-most thoughts, his rights, wrongs and his troubles while the ticking of the clock grows continually louder.
This is the unique form of play seen in Dinner Date: as the subconsciousness of Julian one performs his every-day actions such as tapping the table, watching the clock and eventually reluctantly starting to eat. These actions become intimately personal when combined with Julian’s startlingly personal thoughts. There are indeed many things someone being stood up would not readily tell his friends and yet as Julian’s subconsciousness these thoughts come exceptionally close. By all means Dinner Date is the character portrait of Julian: one will get to know him better than he knows himself.
Stout Games offers the game for $12.95 but in the spirit of dating offers a unique deal for those arriving in pairs; the Dinner for Two deal offers two copies of the game at a $5.65 discount. By wrapping the gift digitally, Stout Games enables the giving of a personalized gift to a friend, game enthusiast or, indeed, romantic partner.
A large set of animations is used to bring Julian to life in his realistically rendered 3d kitchen. His musings are fully voiced and emphasized by a high-quality score composed specifically for Dinner Date.
The only manner in which one may find out what goes on in the mind of a man being stood up, whether the girl will come and how long he can bare listening to the ticking clock is to purchase Dinner Date and become the subconsciousness of Julian Luxemburg.
