Echo Chamber Games and publisher Curve Digital gave gamers the Valentine’s Day gift of a new physics-based dating sim, Table Manners. A disembodied hand and chaotic physics on date, what could go wrong?
While this may seem like a VR title, players on PC command a disembodied hand during their often humorous and catastrophic attempt while trying to perform the simplest of tasks. From pouring a glass of wine to lighting a candle for ambiance this epic challenge of finding love is a disaster in the making. Now try not to smash the wine bottle or set the table on fire.
Unlike real-life dates, Table Manners is a romantic encounter where failure is just as much fun as success. Naturally, your gut instinct is to impress your potential new partner, but no one can deny that accidentally drenching your date in a freshly poured bottle of wine isn’t without its own reward. We think it’ll serve as either the perfect practice for those who have a real-life date lined up, or antidote for those who give Valentine’s Day a miss.Tim Lewis, Producer at Echo Chamber Games
Dates don’t only just happen in safe and stable restaurants. With several unique locations such as a cruise ship or up in the air on a private jet, each experience brings its won set of challenges both with physics and the ability to perform. And for all the left-handed people out there don’t fret, the game has a left-handed mode so that everyone can participate in the hilarity.
Table Manners is available now on Steam for Windows PC at a regular price of $17.99 USD. A special promotion on Steam that discounts the game down to $14.39 USD runs until February 21, 2020. In addition the game is currently available in the Love Physics Bundle on Steam which includes Human: Fall Flat in the discounted bundle.
