A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

NOTE: This game is still in active development. Screenshots & Alpha build are not representative of the final version!

It's not what you say, it's how you say it. We should talk is a short-form narrative game that will make you think twice about the words you choose.

Using a unique choice mechanic, craft sentences in response to the in-game characters. Through this careful choice of words, you'll discuss ongoing problems about life and romance with your partner over text messages, while also chatting with friends and strangers at a local bar about what’s on your mind. The combination of words you choose affects how genuinely you can connect with their partner, and whether your relationship can survive the night.

Controls: Up/Down/Left/Right or WASD, with Enter or Space for confirming.


Narrative: Carol Mertz and Jordan Jones-Brewster
