We were talking about this in my game design class and I though you guys would be interested!

It's an AI experiment by some dudes.

Quote by Wikipedia
Façade puts the player in the role of a close friend of Grace and Travis (nicknamed Trip), a couple who has recently invited the player to their home for cocktails. This pleasant gathering, however, quickly grows into domestic turmoil as the couple begins to argue immediately upon the player's arrival. Taking full advantage of the incorporated language processing software, the game then allows the player to type sentences to "speak" with the couple, either supporting them through their troubles, or driving them farther apart.


This is game that uses an advanced "SmarterChild-esque" bot that determines the outcome of the game. Read my transcript and you'll see how hilarious it can be.


You can download it here. Take a while though, so forget it if you're on dialup.

TO KEEP THIS SHORT, I CUT OFF SOME OF THE SCENES. I'M NICK.
FACADE STAGEPLAY

NICK
knock knock

(Trip opens the front door.)

TRIP
Nick!!

TRIP
Hey! I thought I heard someone out here! God it's been so long since we've seen you! -- (interrupted)

TRIP
Uh...

TRIP
Well come on in...

TRIP
Uh, let me go get Grace...

TRIP
(unintelligable arguing)

NICK
What's up dudes?

GRACE
Hi! How are you? Oh god it's been such a long time!

TRIP
Yeah, how -- how are you doing? -- (interrupted)

GRACE
I just asked him that...

TRIP
Well I'm asking him too!

GRACE
(frustrated sigh)

NICK
You guys are acting weird

GRACE
Uh... well... um... (clears throat)

GRACE
Well, um... make yourself at home, I guess...

(Trip closes the front door.)

NICK
So, how's it going?

(NICK hugs grace.)

(NICK hugs trip.)

TRIP
Oh! you're hugging me, ha ha heh heh...

GRACE
Nick, careful, too much affection can go to Trip's head... -- (interrupted)

(NICK hugs trip.)

TRIP
Oh, ha ha, well...

GRACE
Well you're really affectionate tonight, aren't you. -- (interrupted)

(NICK hugs trip.)

TRIP
(little sigh) (clears throat)

(NICK hugs trip.)

TRIP
Oh, Nick, I thought you might like this photo I just put up from our recent trip to Italy.

GRACE
Might like it? It's a beautiful picture of the Italian countryside, of course he'll like it!

GRACE
By the way, anybody, join me on the couch if you like.

TRIP
Um... now,, Nick, what does this picture make you think of?

GRACE
Think of? Ha ha. That's easy.

TRIP
Nick, in a word, what does this say to you? -- (interrupted)

NICK
banana

TRIP
Mmm... no...

GRACE
Hey, what's wrong with that? That's a perfectly good answer!

TRIP
Well, actually, this trip to Italy was meant to be our second honeymoon!

NICK
Wow!


(NICK picks up a trinket 5.)

GRACE
Oh, I've been, uh, collecting these sculptures for a while now...

TRIP
Makes you feel like you're in an art museum.

GRACE
Trip, no --

TRIP
What, I thought you'd like that...! -- (interrupted)

(NICK kisses grace.)

TRIP
(nervous coughing)

GRACE
(nervous coughing)

TRIP

TRIP

GRACE

(NICK kisses trip.)

GRACE

GRACE

GRACE
I -- I thought...

GRACE
Let's get the um... the um...

NICK
Let's have a threesome.

TRIP
Okay, Nick, I think this evening is over, you've got to leave. -- (interrupted)

TRIP
I'm sorry, but, uhh, I don't know what the deal is with you tonight.

(Trip opens the front door.)

TRIP
We'll be fine -- just go.

(Trip closes the front door.)

(NICK knocks on the front door.)

this game is impossible to win. every time they start working out their issues, they go on an unstoppable path to separation. CAN THEY NOT SEE THAT THEY'RE MEANT FOR EACHOTHER?

i actually won it, so i'm happy. You've gotta play it kinda cool in the beginning, but EVERY time they slightly touch on any topic, you've gotta go "why?" "what happened?" etc. until something gets uncovered. Then hopefully at the end they'll reveal a bunch of stuff and feel better. If 3 major things aren't revealed at the end, you won't win.

Is it possible to "win" by getting them both toasted and starting either a fight or a sexy party?
