Indie Show and Tell

by | Nov 12, 2019 | Show & Tell

For my indie game, I chose Super Seducer, a dating simulation game by self acclaimed “dating guru” Richard LaRuina. I love this game for its ironic value. The game itself it created by a man who believes himself to be an expert of love, and thus the entertainment comes from the ridiculous options he includes in the game. To see such a man who prides himself as a love expert do something ridiculous, like sneak up behind two girls sitting on a couch in order to woo them. Ultimately the game acts as a look inside the mind of a fool who considers himself an expert and the ridiculous actions he believes people may think would be rational responses in a normal interaction.
