Facade

Sep 16, 2013 by

This is the type of game that really pisses you off! I started playing games as early as the Sega Genesis (Sonic the Hedgehog!) and Facade was definitely the first game I played of  this kind. It was weird playing such a different game as I’m used to playing games with goals and accomplishments, but this game has none of that because you cannot win. A game without a chance to win just defeats the purpose of the game. No matter how hard I tried to be nice,  I always end up pissing off the couple in some way (maybe I’m not a nice guy?) , which pisses me off because I would end up having to restart the game. In the end, I came to the conclusion that trip, grace and I cannot...

Facade (Spoiler Alert)

Sep 16, 2013 by

The very first time I started playing facade, it was very short. I could not figure out how to walk into the apartment and I got kicked out very soon just because of that. The second time I started playing, I figured out how to walk into the apartment and finally got to meet Grace.  Hooray?

It showcases the popular struggle of all yuppies which is to either choose a career that they love and be unsure of their future...

Facade the gift that keeps on giving. Facade has something that most modern games don’t have and that is re-play ability. The first time I was escorted out of the house I was shocked and offended. I thought to myself did I just lose; is this real. When I recovered from the emotional shock I restarted the game and was set on going as far as possible. However after about 10 minutes of constant bickering I had enough and started to insult them. This caused the two of them to some what work together and turn on me. Which I told them was a step in the right direction for their relationship. Despite the game not knowing how to respond to most phrases and comments it was still enjoyable interacting with the two of...

Facade – Response

Sep 16, 2013 by

To start things off I’m not used to word text games as I never played one before. It was interesting and fun, as it hurts to admit, to feel that you have some leverage over the way the plot will reveal it self. Then I played it for the first time, Trip and Grace, seemed to be round characters but after playing few more times they became very dull. I managed to finish the game twice out of six tries and both times the plot was practically one and the same. First it was Trip that cheated on Grace with some Maria and the way Grace responded what killed the interest.  Grace did not engage in this branch of the plot and simply ignored it. Second time I finished it it was exactly the...
