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".

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!

This game is amazing. If offered me an experience I never had before and I probably never will have. I had so many feelings come over me. I felt the amazing feeling of having a date. I felt the horible feeling of someone not showing up to the date. It simulated real life perfectly. I'm glad I played this game before going on a real life date. If I ever feel lonley in by bedroom in the dark with the blinds closed then I can just play dinner date and feel the sensation of having a date. Then I will feel the depressing feeling of having my date not show up. In conclusion, this game is the best game I have played since Lunch date simulatior. I give this game a 20/10

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 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.

Lately, I've been making a habit of trying out games with "Mixed" reviews--often, I find them to be the most interesting. Dinner Date is a game that isn't for everyone; some might not enjoy the concept, others might find it boring. This isn't a game in which the goal is clear, and the end result isn't necessarily what you would call gratifying. There are no bosses to defeat or world to save. To me, this game embodies "virtual reality" in a much more emotional sense.

You are the subconscious of the protagonist, Julian, as he experiences the agony of waiting on his "dinner date" to arrive. This means, you really have no control over what is happening. You can merely observe and react in the most subtle of ways. As the story unfolds before you, you are given a set of choices. Will Julian glance nervously at the clock, have a cigarette to calm his nerves or have another glass of wine as he bemoans his situation? The voiceover acting is very well done, and adds to realism of the game. If you've ever experienced the anxiety of anticipation. and the agony of disappointment, the game expresses both perfectly.

In order to truly enjoy this game, you have to accept the fact that nothing you do will change its outcome. You are merely along for the ride, guiding Julian's thoughts and actions along the way via a growing number of options by pressing specific buttons on your keyboard, which lead to certain interactions. But it's not as if you're sitting there idle while a long cinematic cutscene plays either; it's an experience you can be a part of from start to finish. As Julian's subconscious, you are like the director with Julian as the actor. Considering the options are numerous, and you can choose them in any order you wish, everybody's experience in the game will be slightly different and unique to them, even if the ending is the same. It gives it a very personal feel which I enjoyed. Overall, this is an overlooked and misunderstood little gem of a game.

Ok let me start of by saying the quality of the graphics actually surprised me when i first loaded up the game.

Next I'll say this is a pretty good addition to the do hardly anything but just watch and experience genre.

Finally I could'nt tell you how many pieces of bread I ate while listening to this guy the game even allows you to be a double dipper! 8/10

This is not a game. This is more of an experience of a nervous man waiting for his date to come...well...that never shows up. I have to say the experience is pretty good and I feel for this man with his anxiety issues. However, I don't feel this game-err...experience is worth 3 dollars. If it is on sale, it's worth it to try it. Otherwise, wait for the sale to happen and get it.

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

The game starts you off by telling you you're not playing the character, which is sort of true. You don't control the character in the traditional sense, instead you play a part of his subconcious, you direct where he looks and what draws his attention. You have some minor impulse control in your repetoir as well, but in the end the guy basically just does what he wants anyway... or at least the game forces you to give him what he wants.

You play a 27 year old guy who has just been stood up by the 20 year old japanese girl that one of his mates has set him up with. She's pretty, and flirty, and from what I understood of the games dialogue she's something of a party girl. As the story progresses you learn a great deal about the young man you're almost controlling, but on the whole thats about all you do.

There are few choices offered to you by the game. You get to control where the young man looks, which things draw his attention, and which inconsequential actions he peforms; from staring at the clock to eating a piece of bread or smoking. The game progresses down the same path every time. I'm guessing that eventually, if you try to refrain from eating bread or soup, the game will force you to do so as some of the dialogue comments on the things you're eating. I plan to explore this game further.

On the whole this game really isn't worth it. It's an interesting concept, and the voice acting is interesting... but if you have to miss an out there indie game this year, this is the one to miss.

Interesting 20min of play through if you can pick up in bundle for next to nothing but not worth the $3 its being sold for
