Acerca de este juego

Julian Luxemburg ha preparado cena para dos en su casa – pero las cosas se tuercen cuando su cita no aparece y él se queda esperando en la mesa, con el sonido de las agujas del reloj siendo cada vez más y más molesto.

„Dinner Date” es el retrato del personaje de Julian: convirtiéndote en su subconsciente consigues un punto de vista privilegiado acerca de las preocupaciones que le asolan. Conforme aumenta la espera por la bella joven resulta evidente que los verdaderos problemas de Julian no tienen siquiera origen en la chica: ¿qué pasa con su trabajo y su jefe? ¿Y qué pasa con el cazatalentos, su fascinación con Byron y su amistad con Jerry quien, todo sea dicho, fue la persona que en última instancia presionó a Julian a embarcarse en esta cita?

No te limitas a escuchar – en este papel sin precedentes como su subconsciente puedes dar golpecitos en la mesa, mirar el reloj y conforme Julian ponga su mente más al descubierto, reacio a empezar a cenar, tus acciones resonarán con los pensamientos de Julian para formar un estado de intimidad absolutamente único.

De esta forma vas a experimentar „Dinner Date”: con unos vasos de vino, algo de pan, algo de sopa - y con un reloj que lentamente se mofa de la espera constante a que ella llegue, esta joven difícil de alcanzar que será la solución para todo.

Características principales:

  • La historia de Julian conforma 25 minutos de relato vocal y es contada a través de varias animaciones excepcionales, localizadas en un ambiente 3D en tiempo real con la interfaz única de jugar como una entidad subconsciente, la primera de su género.
  • El juego se completa con un guión original, escrito por Than van Nispen tot Pannerden.
  • En el festival de juegos independientes IGF 2011, „Dinner Date” ha sido nominado al premio Nuovo, premio que "honra el desarrollo de juegos abstractos, reducidos y poco convencionales que hacen avanzar a los medios y a la forma en que pensamos acerca de los juegos".

Enter the mind of Julian Luxemburg, a young man whose inability to eat anything but the same piece of somehow rapidly regenerating bread has trapped him in a life of indignity and solitude.

Watch forever alone Julian Luxemburg eating his meal that comes every time back with the power of Jeannies Magic.
This game has a heart breaking story with full of twists. Soon you will ask yourself: "Why am I playing? What where they thinking?" And the story will fully get you. I was shocked when he brutally murdered that slice of bread by dipping it in the sauce until it was drawn. I can hear it scream in my nightmares. But that was only the start. He uses some kind of Magic device to reverse the time and let the slice of bread suffer again and again while he murder him and his Son Bread,his Daughter Bread and his Wife bread. And it goes on, He lightens an innocent Cigarette! And draws all of his life by sucking on it. What is wrong with this guy? Why is he in such a Murder Rampage? Nobody will know! And it ends with an Cliff Hangar, he goes out of his House. What will come next? Will he clomp over innocent sidewalks? Will he buy a donut and eat it while the family of Daddy donut has to watch this? I cannot tell you. But someone who drawn innocent bread is able to do anything!
This game needs a second part the next episode should be called "Dinner Date Rampage of Julian Luxemburg"
I would recommend this game but the Story about a man who has tortured slice of bread to death is to much for me. So you better play something more innocent with less violence. Maybe Postal 2!

Dinner Date is a first person experience that puts you into someone's subconscious. You'll see what he sees and hear his thoughts as he waits for his date and you'll push keys. The key prompts float in little bubbles that have hints about what they'll do. Different keys do different things. You'll get to pour a glass of wine, look at the clock, check your left hand and gaze at your right hand. There are even such details like putting your spoon into soup, stirring it, put the spoon back down and so on. You'll hear the character talk, basically telling you which of the things to do next.

Going into the game I thought it would be another 'crazy hand simulator' like Surgeon Simulator or Ampu-Tea. Nope, you just press keys to do things when the prompts are up.

You have no control over movement or the camera, just over what the character does as he continues to worry about his date. He will wonder whether to drink another glass of wine and what else he could be doing. The dinner date is a quick experience, over in about 30 minutes. Trying to replay it again didn't lead me to think that there are different outcomes.

Dinner Date has a lot going for it, the voice acting is good, the environment is great, but its just a small kitchen with a table in it. You'll go to the window to have a cigarette, but that's it. This could be the demo of a bigger more detailed game, there is talent here, but I just didn't have fun playing the game. Plus there's not much here to get excited about. Its over quick. If a bobbing camera gets you motion sick, avoid this game.

Here's something to think about when telling a story. If its not the most interesting thing that happens to the character, why aren't you telling the more interesting story? Is it technical limitations such as having characters to interact with? Is this what leads the character up to his suicide or finding his true love after the game has ended? Is it witty banter amongst two characters blended with subconscious thought? No, but maybe that will happen in Dinner Date 2: The Reckoning. I'm sure that Luke Skywalker had moments where he just chilled in his bedroom thinking about a girl. That never made it into Star Wars.

Dinner Date was just watching something while I mash all keys at once since there's no sort of right or wrong. Other narrative experiences like Dear Esther and Gone Home at least give you movement control and environments to explore. Like the plot of Dinner Date, it stands in a category all its own.

Ever found yourself sitting around at home in your kitchen thinking "Boy, I wish I could play a game where I sit around at home in my kitchen whining about being stood up for a date for 25 minutes"? Neither have I.

This game lasts 10 minutes.

You don't have to press anything to beat it.

I could have rented a movie worth my time for the $5 I paid for this pretentious turd

The "game" plays itself. It's more of an interactive movie.

The protagonist Julian Luxemburg has prepared a dinner for two and is waiting for his date. During the wait you're supposed to listen to him talking about his problems, luckily the game is very short (10 min) so it's not too painful. There are a few interactions like eating cake and drinking wine. I think this little review could be seen as a spoiler because that's basically all there is.

There are some positive things though: The narration is pretty good and the graphics are not bad. Perhaps I would've recommended it if it was free.

Personal Rating: 2/10

This game is bad. It fails in pretty much everything it does. A story driven game and the voice acting is bad and muffled, you can't hear it even at max volume. The graphics are fine, nothing to talk about, they're average, OK, fine, mediocre. It tells you how to use the hand, but from the eight minutes I could bare to play, I never used the hand once and just mashed buttons to turn his head slightly, drink wine or eat bread.

Don't bother buying this game, unless you get it gifted, but if you do get it gifted send it back to that person with the message "No Chance."

Neurotic Mysogynist Simulator 2011.
The game is extremely short. The protagonist is awful. The time ticks by.
This is barely a tech demo, but if it was one, it would be the tech demo for a machine that fully simulates what it's like to be a total loser who hates himself for being a loser.
2/10. The graphics weren't bad. Everything else was.

I just... no. I can't recommend this. It's not that it's bad, it's that it's as stale as the left-over bread at the end of a failed dinner date.

I'm sure you can make the justification that this is art, expressing the tedium and anguish that comes with an uncertain future, but you have to have some initial investment in the situation to really get that feeling. It's why when someone dies in the first five minutes of a movie, we don't really care nearly as much as when they die right at the end. It makes it hard to care. Sure, the voice acting's alright. The game does a decent job conveying what it's like to be stood up, and it's short, to the point, but I just can't recommend it.

I'm sure this game means a lot to someone, but this someone ain't me.

So, not quite what i think the game was about.
The game have no story interaction control whatsoever no mater what you do. You only can control some involuntary movements but the (boring esixtenzial) story always repeat itself.

Sure is a nice "piece of useless art" but is nothing like a game. Is more like a first person movie where you have a realy limited interaction.

Maybe - and just maybe - a similar concept could work well with an oculus rift

This game should be rated as the dialog has very strong language and lots of sexual reference. It is a very depressing game and I didn't feel very connected to the character. Gone Home was done so much better with a sense of mystery. You can guess the date is going to go horribly wrong after the first minute of the game.

Don't buy this game unless you want to "play" it for less than half an hour, and then delete it and be forced to look at the worst (albeit rather cheap) purchase of your life in your library forever.

I put "play" in quotation marks like that because you don't play anything- you press random buttons and listen to the most pretentious guy who was probably *spoiler* stood up for a reason. That's right, your date never shows up, so you're stuck listening to the really boring thoughts of some guy you don't care about at all.

Also infinite bread.

Отвратительно.Главный герой неадеватный нытик и синяк, тут же цапнул бутылку красного и стал пить даже неподождав и 30 минут девушку.Вам придёться слушать его нытьё, смотреть на его неврозы, потом посмореть как он пожрёт, покурит и свалит из дома.
