Hmmm, intriguing stuff. I can't say it really engages me, though. There's something about it that is too predetermined that takes away any feeling of responsibility.

I saw this on Rock, Paper, Shotgun a while ago. I enjoyed it. The main opinions of the theme of the game were either an addiction, depression or self-harm.

I just played it once, I guess I'm good at dumping women because really it only took one little argument, then she started telling me that I would be useless without her and no one would like me. That made the dumping of her pretty easy, and apparently I lived happily ever after with my new found independence.

Now to go and do it for real maybe :O

EDIT: Not sure what Joe was doing that I was not, but most of the time I played it, things turned out okay. Even the one time I got this dude to try to kill himself he felt better for the experience.

Few days ago me and my gf broke up and the every thing that comes up on every kind of media is about relationships and break ups and now a game. Wow I'm a "winner" that's for sure.

About the game, just use the "turn around and leave" or "stick the middle finger", what I've done in real life is pretty hard and no game can simulate that.

I played this earlier today to try it out.

It's rubbish.

Woke up in a hospital after 5 whole minutes of play, no idea how I got there, no explanation, but apparently that's the end. Waste of time.

Literally, or in-game?

Baaaah.

I went on quite the rant about this game. It really, really bugs me that you can't attempt to salvage things with this girl. That really kills my sympathy for the guy.

Firstly, I don't think it's art per se, merely arty - or with artistic pretension.

Secondly, complaining that you can't save the relationship here is like getting pissed off with Half-Life because you can't join up with the Combine...

I don't know... I would've gladly done either of the above by the time I'd reached the end.
