About This Game

So this guy gets some spam about finding his soulmate. And what does he do? He clicks send... twice.

Oops.

The next day he bumps into twin strangers who look alike, talk alike, and don't seem to know the other exists.

You're Lorne's silent Muse. His guiding hand. His Jiminy Cricket.

Draw him from his loneliness to connect with acquaintances, reunite with family, and explore the ebbing romances of two distant cities. Maybe you'll unravel his doppelganger dilemma and reveal "true" love. Or maybe he'll end up alone.

This is a mystery at its heart, not a love story. Although the bond between romance and mystery is always tighter than it first appears. Still, enter this narrative with an open mind and curiosity, like a detective, inspecting the crime scene that is placebo love.

KEY EXPERIENCES


  • FOMO: Navigate a tight schedule of diverse bonds
  • HONESTY: Choose when to tell the truth or hide those feelings
  • FUTURES: Unlock multiple endings by juggling contacts
  • INSPIRATION: Be the gentle push and pull of lonely lives

OTHER FEATURES OF NOTE


  • Narratively rich. Like a dense brownie made of book parts. Expect a lot of good reading.
  • Gorgeous soundtrack by Lannie "Merlandese" Neely III and Fernando "Ferdk" Carabajal. We're proud of it.
  • LGBTQ+ inclusion.
  • A schedule system. That's the heart of it. Think of, like, a Persona game but with none of the dungeon-y stuff.
  • Alcohol is represented and in some cases abused. Be careful.
  • Sex is implied and mentioned in some cases, but is never the focus.

WHAT NOT TO EXPECT


  • A harem. There are many people to spend time with, but not in the "romantic" or "sexual" way.
  • True love. We don't know what that is. The best on offer is a placebo.
  • Simple solutions. Not everything will become completely clear by the end, like life.
