Developer Insatiable Cycle and publisher Whitethorn Digital announce their short-form narrative game We should talk. will launch this June on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One — with a demo available to play now on Steam for a limited time as part of The Steam Game Festival Spring Edition.
It’s not what you say — it’s how you say it. We should talk. is a game about relationships and the nuance of communication that will make you think carefully about the words you choose.
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.
We should talk. will release on PC, Mac, and all three current console platforms for $6.99.
