The latest live-action game from Wales Interactive has been detailed, tasking players with finding love through a dating app during the coronavirus lockdown.
Five Dates follows the story of Vinny, a London-based millennial who finds himself chatting to five potential matches. You’ll be making all of his decisions, exploring compatibility, chemistry and more, with each of your choices being played out by the actors on screen.
Five Dates is an exploration of the unpredictable modern dating experience. Through his journey, the decisions the viewer makes for him will challenge their own conceptions of attraction and compatibility. Throughout the game, your choices and your interactions will either strengthen or weaken your relationship with your date. The relationship scores are calculated from the start right through to the very end and will affect certain scenarios as well as having consequences in the concluding scenes.
• Over 7 hours of filmed footage
• Real-time Relationship Status Tracking that influences the story as you play
• Multi-optional storytelling with 10 different outcome
This interactive rom-com will be launching on PC and Mac on 17th November, with a Switch release following “closely” behind.
Of course, the last time we heard from Wales Interactive was when the controversial Gamer Girl was announced. That title has seemingly vanished from the face of the Earth following heavy backlash, so it seems Five Dates will be the publisher’s next release.
