If you're looking for a unique twist on an old-school sci-fi adventure, check this out.
It's called Alone With You and as detailed over at the PlayStation Blog , it'll be playable at the GDC Expo for the first time ever.
Attendees will be able to play one mission and yes, the story involves a romance and…well, dating. As the last remaining member of a doomed terraforming colony (the planet you're standing on will crumble and implode in less than a month), you must take advantage of your last moments and try to escape. Only one pod is left and it's not working, and the only people who can fix it are dead. You've still got the colony's AI, though.
The AI's name is AF4B/3B – rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it? – and she'll help you explore your forbidding environment. She's not the love interest, though… This has been dubbed a "romance adventure" but it's hardly a dating sim; it's about "the curious threads you discover when love happens at the most inopportune times." You will interact with your fallen colonists via simulation and you will also make critical decisions throughout the course of the gameplay.
Lastly, the developers make it clear that the game is "open to all players, regardless of gender or orientation." Important to know in this day and age.
