Ever landed a date with the person of your dreams, only to accidentally throw their meal across their face? Or did you make the common mistake of knocking an entire bottle of wine over their lap? Or go the whole hog and set fire to the table several times?
Recreating disastrous dates the world over, Curve Digital and Echo Chamber Games are proud to announce their new first-person dating game, Table Manners, will hit PC early next year, giving us all the chance to experience some potentially calamitous courtship.
This tongue-in-cheek experience charges people with taking charge of a would-be romantic eager for love. The only problem is, said suitor is a disembodied hand with a knack for catastrophe! Players will be thrust into the most awkward dinner date they’ve (hopefully) ever been a part of, where every act – from eating your burger to pouring your date a glass of red – is utterly fraught with danger and hilarity.
Everything in Table Manners must be interacted with directly in a 1-to-1 fashion with players having to master their own shaky hands in order to impress their date. The more successful dates you pull off, the more your skills in the fine art of dating grow and the unlocks begin to flow.
You’ll gain access to more sophisticated venues – each with unique gameplay mechanics – and, even more importantly, more potential dates to either impress or distress with your food-related finesse.
All potential partners in Table Manners are procedurally generated so you’ll never know exactly who will sit across you at the dinner table.
Attendees at Twitchcon (27th – 29th September) this weekend will be able to go hands-on with an early version of Table Manners. If you are heading to the show simply head to booth #1361 (adjacent to the Streamer Workshop on the showfloor) where the development team will be on hand to showcase the game.
