Swiping right and getting a “match” on Tinder is just the start. There are many factors that will determine if you will be able to impress the “match” in real life. Will you fumble on your first dinner date and ruin the moment, or will you impress your date? Well, you don’t need real life to tell you that because, Tablet Manners: The Physics-based Dating Game will put you through the test.
This video game of dating puts in the first person point-of-view as you try to control your disembodied, unreliable hand to woo your date.
Here’s the office description:
“Ready to prove any calamitous date you’ve had in real life wasn’t as bad as you thought, Curve Digital and Echo Chamber Games are proud to announce their new first-person dating game, Table Manners: The Physics-based Dating Game.
This tongue-in-cheek experience hands people the task of taking charge of a would-be romantic eager for love. However, you are literally handed a disembodied hand, making everything from pouring the object of your affection a glass of wine to lighting candles to create a romantic ambience a mammoth make or break task.
Throw in some unique settings – it’s safe to say dates aboard a cruise ship, or a mile up in the air on a private jet are anything but ‘every day’ – and you’ve got an experience where every moment is utterly fraught with danger and hilarity, and fit to rival any real-life liaison you may have lined up for this year’s Valentines.”
So, yeah, Table Manners is kind of a dating simulator of sort. While you can take it seriously, it should give you an idea of how good a man/woman you are on a date… in the digital environment, that is.
It is slated to release exclusively on PC on Steam for $19.99 on February 14, 2020. Hmmm, about the launch date… is the game developer and publisher targeting the lonely souls on this world’s most romantic day? Don’t mind me. I am just thinking aloud here.
