Conversation-based game

Facade is a freemium game that throws you into the middle of a couple's marital conflict. Trip and Grace, the married family, are entirely AI, and you can say whatever you want in response to what they say. As you type your answers into the system, AI will create responses based on your words.

Try to fix a marriage

Facade starts off the narrative with the player receiving a call. Trip invites the gamer to spend the evening with himself and Grace at their house. Once the player enters the room, it all depends on what they do or say.

The evening can go in multiple ways depending on your tact and how the computer responds. Technically, there is no way to beat the story, but the ideal situation is to have the couple reconcile.

Bugs and limitations

The game has many inherent problems. It was created for Windows XP, but the creators have developed patches that let you download it for Windows 10. Even so, the game does have issues with stability and crashes at times.

The characters in the narrative sometimes will react strangely. As the AI isn't perfect, there will be some awkward instances. For example, if you say melons, the couple will kick you out instantly. Finally, the graphics are completely outdated, although that is a  minor problem in the grand scheme of it all.

Alternatives

Detroit: Become Human is a great option if you are interested in an expansive choice-based adventure. However, it is not as open-ended as Facade is. Strangely no one has attempted to replicate the same style of this game with limitless potential to respond however you'd like. 

Galatea is another old game that has the appearance of being open-ended. It is similar to the sandbox question style as you may respond any way you would prefer. In this case, the endings are present, unfortunately.

Groundbreaking conversation game

As Facade is free and is perfectly safe, it's worth getting. There isn't any other comparative narratives available in the gaming world. There is a lot of replayability, and the concept is fun, even if the graphics are bad. If you are interested in sandbox playstyles, Facade is for you.
