A writer having trouble with her sci-fi novel, a biochemist, and several other people talk to each other, sharing stories as you guide the conversation in various ways in Dialogue: A Writer's Story, a game about finding the beat of everyday chat among friends and strangers.
In Dialogue: A Writer's Story, you play as young writer Lucille, talking to the people you meet about your creative difficulties and carrying on about simpler topics. You'll do this in a couple of ways, from real-time talks where you can guide the conversation using the right statements and equipable items that focus the topic, to exploratory talks that map the conversation spatially, to email conversations that can be arranged, edited, and thought out with no time-related pressure.
Seeking look deeper at how we talk with one another, as well as look into the creative process of writing and the thoughts of those spending their time on scientific research, Dialogue: A Writer's Story offers an interesting look at how we talk to one another in different contexts, and how that affects how we communicate.
Dialogue: A Writer's Story is available for £11.99 GBP on Itch.io. For more information on the game and developer Tea-Powered Games, you can head to the developer's site or follow them on YouTube and Twitter.
