Entirely conceptualized, filmed and developed during lockdown from the director, producer and developers of The Complex
Wales Interactive and Good Gate Media are delighted to announce that FIVE DATES – a completely live-action, interactive rom-com will release on PC & Mac on 17 November, closely followed by PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch (date TBC).
Vinny, a millennial from London, joins a dating app for the first time while living in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic. With five potential female matches, Vinny explores whether compatibility, chemistry and connection is still possible in a world where physical touch is no longer an option. He must pluck up the courage to video date with wildly different personalities.
The viewer’s choices will define Vinny’s interactions with each date and their interest in seeing him again. Vinny is faced with digital game dates, awkward scenarios and unexpected truths...
Five Dates is an exploration of the unpredictable modern dating experience. Through his journey, the decisions the viewer makes for him will challenge their own conceptions of attraction and compatibility. Throughout the game, your choices and your interactions will either strengthen or weaken your relationship with your date. The relationship scores are calculated from the start right through to the very end and will affect certain scenarios as well as having consequences in the concluding scenes.
• Over 7 hours of filmed footage
• Real-time Relationship Status Tracking that influences the story as you play
• Multi-optional storytelling with 10 different outcomes
