Game Description

Facade is an award winning interactive fiction game unlike any other. If you wish fiction could be more engaging and interactive, Facade is the game for you.

Navigate Through an Awkward Evening Full of Emotional Landmines

The game opens up with you receiving a message from Trip and Grace, some old friends of yours from college. Trip sounds rather nervous as he invites you over, and when you arrive at their apartment you slowly realize why.


Trip and Grace aren't the happily married couple you expected to spend a pleasant evening with. Underneath the facade of marital bliss is a marriage on the rocks. Your actions will have a lasting impact on their future, and it's in your power to nudge them towards their impending divorce or coax them towards reconciliation.

The choice is yours, but step lightly. If you manage to offend them, you'll get kicked out of their place!

Freeform Dialog Puts You in Control

This game allows you to type your own conversation with the characters without any limitations whatsoever. You can say whatever you want at any point during the game. Gone are the days of multiple choice options! Interrupting will make Trip and Grace irritated if done too often, so it's best to wait your turn to speak.

Experience The Next Evolution of AI

The powerful advanced natural language processing used in Facade is the future of gaming. Trip and Grace understand and react to almost anything you type, no matter how it's worded. The resulting AIs seem extremely lifelike and interesting to interact with. You have the power to influence and steer the conversation based on what you say or how you say it, so choose wisely!

Characters Have Full Range of Emotion

The voices of the characters are realistic and natural, easily conveying emotion and hidden meaning in different phrases. During conversations, their facial expressions are also constantly changing to reflect the emotion of the moment. This is important because offending your hosts will result in your evening coming to a close early.


Randomized Events Add Replay Value

When this game is loaded, certain events in the storyline are randomized. This gives the game added depth and adds to the replay value. In addition, a full script is generated at the end of the game for players to review. Analyzing the evening's conversation can help you reach your desired resolution on the next play through.

Facade is one of the first interactive drama games to successfully allow players free reign over their own dialog during gameplay. Anyone who enjoys experimenting to achieve different outcomes will love this game.
