We should talk is a short-form narrative game that will make you think carefully about the words you choose. Can your relationship survive the night? Using a unique narrative choice mechanic, players craft sentences in response to the in-game characters in We should talk. Through this careful choice of words, players express themselves as they discuss ongoing problems about life and romance with their in-game partner over text messages, while also chatting with friends and strangers at their favorite local bar about what’s on their mind. The combination of words they choose impacts the conversations they have, how genuinely they can connect with their partner, and whether their relationship can survive the night.

We‌ ‌Should‌ ‌Talk‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌great‌ ‌game‌ ‌that‌ ‌was‌ ‌fun‌ ‌to‌ ‌play‌ ‌through.‌ ‌As‌ ‌you‌ ‌dissect‌ ‌your‌ ‌various‌ ‌relationships,‌ ‌you‌ ‌are‌ ‌in‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌treat.‌ ‌The‌ ‌overall‌ ‌story‌ ‌is‌ ‌unique—more‌ ‌than‌ ‌I‌ ‌expected‌ ‌it‌ ‌to‌ ‌be.‌ ‌I‌ ‌also felt the balance between text and the actual conversation was very well balanced and well done. The asking price of $6.99 is well worth it.

With its bugs, loading issues, extremely short playthroughs, limited cast and predictable outcomes, We Should Talk feels more like a demo than a complete, polished game.

We Should Talk is an interesting first effort from the small team at Insatiable Cycle, but it feels more like a beta than a finished product. There's just not enough content here to justify taking the time to check out this narrative adventure.

The exploration on how words can change the way people receive you — or in this case, how an evening at the bar can go, is interesting, even if there’s not quite enough going on behind the scenes to make nine playthroughs feel necessary.
