Sony the dating game
Sony, working with Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada, the man behind the popular in 2014, a different iteration placed the user in the bedroom of a female classmate, hanging out.This time, you’re at a seaside villa with a different girl, but from the two minute trailer, it seems like there’s not much more to do than just chat and flirt.With an acoustic singer-songwriter soundtrack and bumpers pleading, “She’s right there beside you” and “She’s waiting for your answer,” Sony positions the immersivity of Project Morpheus within an evocative appeal to the nostalgia of teenage romance.While it’s a logical position to take, Sony is no doubt aware that historically, dating simulators have failed to find the same audience in North America than they enjoy in Japan. It resembles one of those lame old 70's dating game shows, but on crack. One person asks the questions, the other 3 answer them.The asker then gives points to the person who he or she liked the answer to best. The game was posted on somethingawful.com's forums, and was soon afterwards co-opted by the SAites.Virtual Reality dominated E3 this year, with Oculus demonstrating a hand-held control interface and Microsoft’s Hololens redefining tabletop gaming.
It’s worth mentioning that, while a VR companion might appeal to some people, if you intend to go a little farther with your virtual partner, you’ll find better opportunities with Oculus, which, unlike Project Morpheus, will allow adult content.The girl laughs, scrunches up her face, and leans in close.The intimate moment is only punctuated by the avatar of Harada himself walking in on the scene like so many poorly timed parents of our youth.The new point of the game is to say the most disturbing things possible.
The winner is the first person to be kicked out of the game by the asker.The topics (which used to be about dating) have now shifted to scatalogical and necrophilia humor.
