FAQ


Can I really type anything?
Yes, you can, but the interaction depends on what you type. This game puts you in a specific situation: a conversation about a relationship in stalemate. If you don’t take on that role, the game will ignore most of what you type. If you try to “stick to the script” you’ll notice how the game can understand you and respond appropriately.

One playthrough is pretty short. Why shouldn’t I get a refund after I finish it?
How many times have you put a lot of effort into something but that effort wasn’t acknowledged? It’s often difficult to understand how much time and money goes into what we experience as entertainment, but we’re sure you can see where we’re coming from. That’s why we hope you’ll consider this a fair price for the kind of experience “Don’t Make Love” is.

Why is the game only available in English?
We would love to cover as many languages as possible but converting the system to support more languages would be a tremendous amount of work. Since we are only three people, it would be too much for us to take on. If the game proves successful, we’ll consider this possibility.
