About

Julian Luxemburg has prepared a dinner for two at his place – but things go awry when the date does not show up and he is left waiting at his dinner table, the clock’s ticking growing unbearably loud.

„Dinner Date” is the character portrait of Julian: by becoming his subconsciousness you gain a clear vantage point on the worries which take a hold of him. As the wait for the beautiful girl grows longer it becomes evident that Julian’s real problems may not even begin originate the girl: what of his work and his boss? And what of the headhunter, his fascination with Byron and his friendship with Jerry who, all things considered, was ultimately the person who pushed Julian to go on this date?

You are not merely listening – in the unprecedented role as his subconsciousness you tap the table, look at the clock and, as Julian bares more of his mind, reluctantly start to eat, your actions resonating with Julian’s thoughts to form an absolutely singular form of intimacy.

In this manner you will experience „Dinner Date”: with some glasses of wine, some bread, some soup - and with a clock which slowly mocks the constant wait for when she comes, this elusive girl who will solve everything.

Key features:
  • Julian’s story lasts a fully voiced 25 minutes and is told through various unique animations, set in a real-time 3d environment with the unique interface of playing as a subconsciousness, the first of its kind.
  • The game is complimented by an original score, written by Than van Nispen tot Pannerden.
  • At the Independent Game Festival 2011, „Dinner Date” has been nominated for the Nuovo award, an award which ‘honors abstract, shortform, and unconventional game development which advances the medium and the way we think about games.’

Dinner Date reviews and comments

Translated by

Dinner Date is an interactive Film that tells a Stage in Julian Luxemburg's Life. You wait for the Date. Meanwhile, countless Thoughts swirl through the Protagonist's Mind. And these Thoughts are accompanied by Actions that are offered to you on the Screen. The Centerpiece of the Game is the Story and therefore nothing for People looking for Action.

The Beration itself says that the Game lasts only 25 Minutes, it took me 22 Minutes and I am really happy that it was no longer. Of Course, you can interpret a lot in DInner Date. How deep the Character is, who thinks interestingly, why we wait, what waiting means, what that means with ... Oh Cheese, all that goes down in this Camera guide. The Camerawork is terrible and you have the Feeling of the Protagonist has already sat before eating neatly. Then the Buttons you press are indistinct and barely recognizable. Last but not least, the Game ends without Clarification what was going on. The Whole thing was completely shamed and senseless. For this Game you can spend 19 Cents in the Sale, but almost 4 EUR I find completely exaggerated for less than half an Hour of Play. I can only advise you to buy this Game. But There are also Games that I like [mediennerd.de]

The Minigame barely delivers what it promises-a "Journey into The Subconscious." One simply had a mediocre gifted speaker speak in a few typical, downright Painfully clichéd Self-pity Displays and then programmed a completely automatic, 25-minute Quassel Tirade. Alibally, you have built in a few meaningless Interactions with yourself, Bread, Wine, Soup and a Cigarette, but they have no Effect on anything. The Graphics are absolutely feeble, but it doesn't fail alone. Achja, without wanting to spoil anyone's fun: "You will experience" Dinner Date "with a few Glasses of Wine, some Bread and soup, and also with a Watch that, through its slow Ticking, will resolve the Waiting Time for the deceptive Girl,-> that will end up dissolving everything-, only in common Appearing. " In the End, nothing is dissolved at all. An intelligent Twist at the End, which would have justified the 3 Euros at least shortly before the End, is completely waited in vain. Dinner Date not only misses the Claim to be a Game-that would be succincent-it also doesn't send a successful artistic Message, and that's a Disappointment. If you want to play an art (non) game, you can download "Graveyard" for free, which I found to be more touching a hundred times. Or he puts down €8s' and experiences the ingenious "Dear Esther," which really symbolizes a philosophical Journey and is rightly recognized as Art.
