Edit: the game is started, our two lovebirds (Allie and Zahra) have met, had one truly awkward date, and everything’s going swimmingly, AND we have room available for new Cast Members. Come on down and help these two live happily ever after!
We all know the story - two people who are obviously meant to be together meet, separate, meet again, maybe separate again, have a date where everything goes wrong, experience absurd miscommunication, and somehow finally realize that they’re in love about an hour after everybody else in the story has already realized it and just want them to wake up and smell the coffee goddamit.
The two people are: impossibly rich yet somehow good-hearted and helpful, and/or a hard working professional who somehow has time to have long conversations about love with their best friend/barista/own child, and/or an editorial assistant who can’t possibly be making more than 40K yet somehow has a really cool loft apartment overlooking Central Park (or similar landmark), and/or something else really cool or occasionally slightly angsty.
And none of the story could happen without the supporting cast: the Best Friend, the Crusty Boss, the Impossibly Well-behaved Child, the Ex Who Still Loves Them But Really Wants Them To Be Happy, the Strange But Wise Stranger Who Keeps Appearing Like A Goddam Plot Device. And So On.
That’s where you come in. In this story, each of you will be one of the Supporting Cast, a motley group who will help these two crazy kids meet, bicker, meet again, have the worst karaoke experience of all time, and finally have that Grand Romantic Gesture that signals the happy conclusion of the story. To start, you will collaborate to design the couple, including gender, background, personality, neat job, and maybe some plot hooks - then play through to see how they overcome all the different problems that stand in their way. Come on, you already know what a lot of the problems are, but isn’t it fun to watch them go through them?
And there will be montages. So, so many montages.
