Howdy, all! Welcome to Saturday, and you know what that means! Yep, another Nindie Spotlight. This time, we’re focusing on a rather interesting title. One that I never really expected to enjoy. Welcome to your Nindie Spotlight for today – Speed Dating For Ghosts.
Speed Dating For Ghosts
Speed Dating For Ghosts is truly a game like no other. I mean, you can tell that from its title, right? It’s exactly how it sounds. You speed date with ghosts. What’s not to love?
It’s simple – choose a room. When you’ve chosen a room you will do two rounds of speed dating with three different ghosts, each with their own personalities and stories to tell. Because ghosts get lonely, too, you know? You have multi-choice options of what to say to them and some dates will go well, some dates not so well. That all depends on your answers. At the end of the two rounds, you will then choose your favourite, netting you a date with them. Each ghost date is unique to them and will consist of some more humourous and emotional conversation. It’s a lot of fun, without giving too much away.
There are several ghosts to become acquainted with and romance (if you so choose) all from different time periods, all of different shapes and sizes. A poltergeist who terrorizes rich men in Vegas or even a ghost dog – you will see it all, and you will be entirely engrossed in what they have to say.
The beautiful thing about Speed Dating For Ghosts is that no interaction with these ghosts will be boring, and they can affect you in different ways. It can be funny, scary, and sometimes heart-warming – or even heart-breaking. Learning how they died and even how they lived is a wonderful experience.
The art style is simple with single background colour with a hand-drawn black and white image of the ghost in front of it. The ghosts are wonderfully drawn though and they surprisingly have a ton of detail. The simplistic art style suits the game perfectly and it all adds to the charm.
Speed Dating For Ghosts can be played in short bursts and won’t take you long to fully play through (roughly lasting 2-3 hours), but it’s perfectly priced for this. It’s currently on sale for £2.35, and you can’t go wrong with that price. Speed Dating For Ghosts is a charming experience that you need to play. Trust me on this one.
