Over dit spel

Julian Luxemburg has prepared a dinner for two at his place – but things go awry when the date does not show up and he is left waiting at his dinner table, the clock’s ticking growing unbearably loud.

„Dinner Date” is the character portrait of Julian: by becoming his subconsciousness you gain a clear vantage point on the worries which take a hold of him. As the wait for the beautiful girl grows longer it becomes evident that Julian’s real problems may not even begin originate the girl: what of his work and his boss? And what of the headhunter, his fascination with Byron and his friendship with Jerry who, all things considered, was ultimately the person who pushed Julian to go on this date?

You are not merely listening – in the unprecedented role as his subconsciousness you tap the table, look at the clock and, as Julian bares more of his mind, reluctantly start to eat, your actions resonating with Julian’s thoughts to form an absolutely singular form of intimacy.

In this manner you will experience „Dinner Date”: with some glasses of wine, some bread, some soup - and with a clock which slowly mocks the constant wait for when she comes, this elusive girl who will solve everything.

Key features:

  • Julian’s story lasts a fully voiced 25 minutes and is told through various unique animations, set in a real-time 3d environment with the unique interface of playing as a subconsciousness, the first of its kind.
  • The game is complimented by an original score, written by Than van Nispen tot Pannerden.
  • At the Independent Game Festival 2011, „Dinner Date” has been nominated for the Nuovo award, an award which ‘honors abstract, shortform, and unconventional game development which advances the medium and the way we think about games.’

This isn't a game. This is a video in which you can choose what meaningless task you want the character to perform which has no actually input into anything whatsoever.

Avoid at all costs.

I can appreciate art games when done right, Dear Esther was a fantastic aural and visual presentation, and Gone Home told a heartbreaking story that could only be experienced through a videogame. Dinner Date tho, is one of the worst 5 dollars i have spent.

Its a shame, because the concept is interesting, and to be honest i like the idea of it, putting the player in the mind of a character and being able to see his thoughts is intriguing. The problem is, there is little value or reason to be paying 5 bucks for this. Its over in about 15 minutes. 15 MINUTES. When games like Heavy Rain do these types of games, they give a good long narrative. Or even a telltale episode, you get 2 hours of story content for 5 dollars. Here, you stay in a room, and pick thoughts. Then it ends.

This could have been an interesting demo for free, that could be an interesting mechanic in story based games. I cannot recommend it at all for its price point, you would be better off watching the walkthrough on youtube.

Alright, if your love life doesn't work too well, eat some soup, get drunk and then join your buddies at the bar.
This short game is just an episode of the ordinary man's sad life and, oh man, it definitely hits the sore spot.
