Tea-Powered Games


Dialogue: A Writer's Story is a relaxing game about conversations in everyday life. In Dialogue, you play as the writer Lucille Hawthorne, exploring characters and events through a year in her life via mostly ordinary, and occasionally fantastical, conversations.

The game consists of various types of conversations with different mechanics. Active conversations occur in real-time, and the effect of Lucille's statements can be modified through her equipped Focus. Exploratory conversations map different subjects spatially, allowing for backtracking and finding new paths, while emails can be arranged and edited.

Be inspired alongside Lucille as you help her write her science fantasy novel. Reflect on the often unflashy tribulations of the creative process and consider how you feel and react in a story that is neither heart-pounding nor tear-jerking, but personal nonetheless.
