An AI game about marital breakdown

Facade is a unique free interactive adventure game that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to simulate a marital breakdown. Developed by Procedural Arts, this game aims to move beyond traditional branching or hyperlinked narratives and create a fully-realized, one-act interactive drama.

In Facade, you play as yourself, a longtime friend of the couple named Grace and Trip. Grace and Trip are an attractive and materially successful couple in their early thirties. The game takes place during an evening get-together at their apartment, where tensions rise and accusations fly, leading to irreversible decisions that can potentially destroy their marriage.

To control your character, you must type to communicate with the other characters, navigate with arrow keys, and use objects with the mouse cursor. Your interactions and choices influence the actions of Grace and Trip, and your goal is to ensure that they stay together rather than resorting to divorce.

One of the main drawbacks of Facade is that it only works on older versions of Mac OS Xand does not support Snow Leopard or above. Attempting to install the game on Snow Leopard or a newer version will result in the installation process freezing on the initial loading screen. Unfortunately, this means that most users will not be able to enjoy Facade unless they install Windows on their Mac.

Despite this limitation, Facade has gained popularity over the years for its original concept and unique gameplay. If you are unable to play the game, you can still watch gameplay videos on YouTube to experience the interactive drama. It's a shame that the developers have not updated the game to be compatible with newer versions of Mac OS X, as Facade offers an intriguing and entertaining exploration of marital conflict.
