You may be familiar with our Taken for a Quickie series, in which we answer questions to offer a speedy overview of a game, but that just wouldn’t be fitting here. We've taken Ms. Kitty Powers’ dating sim out to dinner instead.
A friendly and inclusive little game that entertained us far more than we’d ever have expected a dating simulator to.
Zing! Be honest: Did you nick that from the game?
Unashamedly. It’s absolutely awash with racy innuendo and there are some real gems in there, though the humour may be somewhat lost on those outside Britain. As someone with a personal penchant for awkward situations, dating and its stilted interactions are fertile grounds for comedy.
Would you recommend a purchase?
Though we enjoyed our time with Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker, characters did begin to repeat themselves, which is pretty damaging when the snappy writing is what’s keeping you around. By the same token, different types of dates (you’re only able to eat out) would’ve been a natural progression and added some much-needed spice to the game’s love life.
That said, playing in short bursts now and then should go a long way to remedying those issues. If you aren't put off by the £12.39 asking price, it’s a friendly and inclusive little game that entertained us far more than we’d ever have expected a dating simulator to. So, by all means, give it a go if this piece has managed to arouse you in any way... Oh, err, your interest, that is.
