Will you make love and risk death? Assume the role of a praying mantis in a relationship. Constantly torn between their mutual love and the instinct to have sex – which could lead to the male mantis’s death – the couple are now on the verge of making a decision. Assume the role of either of the lovers, and try to keep their relationship in balance. Do your best to convey your feelings in a situation with no solution.Feature list Type your answers freely and watch the conversation unfold. A lively character that reacts to you in a meaningful way. Multiple endings and nonlinear playthroughs. Hand-drawn art style with a cinematic feel. Dynamic soundtrack that changes according to your partner’s mood. FAQ One playthrough is pretty short. Why shouldn’t I get a refund after I finish it? While it’s true that a single playthrough is short, you’ll need more than one to access all the content – the total being roughly the length of a “normal” short game. If that’s still too short for you, 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. Can I really type anything? Yes, technically you can, but you won’t always get a reply. This game puts you in a specific situation: a conversation about a relationship in stalemate where your partner is trying to tell you something. If you don’t take on that role, the game will ignore most of what you type, but if you try to “stick to the script” you’ll notice how the game can understand you and respond appropriately. Why is the game only available in English? We would love to cover as many languages as possible. Unfortunately, recognizing open input from the player also requires knowing the grammar rules of the player’s language. We are a small team, and converting the system to support more languages would be a tremendous amount of work that we couldn’t take on. If the game proves successful, however, we’ll consider this possibility.

Don't Make Love reviews and comments

The Idea behind this Game struck me so interesting that I struck directly: And I have no regrets. You can actually enter self-written Answers and Questions that are (not always) recognized. As a result, new Dialogues are created again and again. Although the Core remains the same, it makes Whim also find out the other Options, which is not always easy. English Proficiency is required, even if you can ludily enter your Texts in German (at least I tried this as a male Mantis once). The Graphic Style is beautiful, stays true to its Line and the Music fits perfectly into the Setting. For the low Price, you should definitely strike.

Don't Make Love works better than I would have thought. You have a Relationship Conversation. An important one and perhaps the Last. The two Worshippers of God Are in love. He is Afraid to die during Intercourse. She doesn't want to hurt him, she doesn't want to kill him. It's their Instinct that Scares them. So the Conversation goes far beyond Love. The Conversation does not work by predetermined Answers. You have to write yourself and the AI usually reacts quite well (or the Conversation continues). For me, it's a shame that the Game is in English, because in German I could express myself better, but okay. The Game gets a little boring when you gamble it several times in a row, but with a little Distance that goes clear. Playing Time is about 1 Hour or less, but you take a lot with you. Beautiful Experience.

Product received for free Don't make love is definitely not for everyone. To like the Game, it takes a few Prerequisites. For one thing, you have to cope with the very leisurely Pace. Because the Game works mainly via Text, you shouldn't mind if a Game is 90% text. And without a German Translation, it also takes enough good Knowledge of English to be able to read and write. And you need some Abstraction To engage in the very special scenario with the two Worshippers. These are some of the Prerequisites. But If you meet them, you get a very interesting, short Game here. Playing Time should be calculated for about 30 to 90 minutes, unless you really want to reach all Ends and Achievements (which seems to me to be very tedious here). In addition to the special and therefore interesting Scenario, Don't Make Love impresses above all with its innovative Technology. Instead of selecting prefabricated Answers, you type in your Answers. This does not always work ideally and probably an x-fold play through Would show that the Influence of the Text is rather marginal. That didn't Matter to me, though. Because when you get into it, a wonderful Feeling arises of really steering the Conversation in a sense. That's exactly what makes the Game outstanding and special And just because of this Experience, I'm happy to recommend it further. And by the way, it's also a nice Love Story. Verdict: No Game for everyone, but if you like to try out special Gaming experiences and/or like to experience special stories away from the well-known Storm Paths, here is served an innovative Mechanic for Storytelling, which will entertain you in a unique Scenario immerses.
