Capsule Review: Hot Date

A small, simple game with a one-note joke: you are speed-dating pugs with no explanation provided. You can choose from a list of stock questions that are filled in mad-libs style and your date’s responses have a similar format, chosen apparently at random with no consistency to suggest an underlying personality or any consequences to your own choices. It doesn’t add up to anything, either - the game just presents a series of semi-random but fundamentally samey dates. Once the novelty wears off (which happens fast thanks to the wires showing very quickly) there’s nothing else left.

I Stopped Playing When: After playing through several dates it was clear the game wasn’t going anywhere interesting.

Docprof's Rating:

One Star: Not for me. While there might be someone out there who'd enjoy this game, I was actively repulsed by it or just found nothing to latch on to.
