Wales Interactive, the studio behind compelling live-action, interactive games such as The Complex, Late Shift; just to name a few, will be teaming up with Good Gate Media for Five Dates later this year. The game will be available for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The plot follows Vinny, a millennial from London, who joins a dating app for the first time while living in lockdown. With five interested women to choose from, the player will control who Vinny video dates and how he interacts with their very different personalities.
The interactive story unfolds in a multitude of different directions, each exploring whether compatibility, chemistry, and connection are still possible in a world where physical touch is no longer an option.
Five Dates is a fast-turnaround rom-com project that has been conceptualized and developed during lockdown and set for release in Q4 2020.
The cast, detailed below, have had iPhones and sound equipment shipped directly to them, with director and writer Paul Raschid set to steer filming, which begins this week; all done remotely.
Five Dates will star Mandip Gill who played Doctor Whoâ€™s companion in the last two series of the long-running UK show.
Gill will be joined by Georgia Hirst (from Vikings fame), Marisa Abela (who is a lead in Lena Dunhamâ€™s upcoming BBC project Industry), Taheen Modak (co-lead in Maisie Williamsâ€™ new Sky show Two Weeks To Live), and Sinead Harnett (UK singer/influencer).
