Chatting with a virtual girlfriend
Seen is a game that will be easy to relate with for anyone who has ever used a text messaging service to get to know someone. In short messages and casual back-and-forth, entire personalities and motivations are revealed in the game. You play as Mark Blythe, a high school student who falls in love with the new student, Nicole Tyler. Through texting, you will learn about her as well as other characters in the game, some of which might be competing for your beloved’s affection. This interactive story game provides you with a number of options that you can respond with to each text. The story builds up slowly and engages you as you root for your protagonist to get the girl.
The game is not so much about skill as much as it is about how well you can read people and of course, how good you are at making people fall for you. However, this is just one of the stories in this game. There is a story maker that you can use to create your own scenarios and then share them with people. However, this interface is not as easy to use as you might like, especially due to the fact that it is missing a tutorial. Once you get the hang of it, you can also share heartbreaking stories from your life or a conversation between Darth Vader and his son. Story World is the in-game community where you can both upload your own stories as well as get others.
The game looks exactly like Facebook Messenger, thus adding to the illusion that it’s all real. One of the more famous stories that you can play through in this game is one based on “Annie96 is typing”, a creepypasta that had gained fame on reddit. Seen is an interactive story game that will keep the attention of even those who don’t particularly like the genre.
