About

Pick-your-own-path and mingle with people in an educational movie-game of picking up, socializing, and drinking. It starts by you playing the role of a single guy walking into a party. The action is seen from the user's point-of-view as you directly interact with characters in this motion picture quality video experience. As the night progresses, you choose which women to approach and what to say. A built in sipping function allows you to sip alcohol and register a buzz-o-meter. Drunken adventures await you if you drink too much. Win or lose, players will actually be able to learn strategies and tactics to successfully approach women in real life. Finally the night ends with some drama and leaves you with an ultimately important decision.
