Prom Week

Prom Week features the most sophisticated AI system for interactive narratives since its spiritual predecessor, Façade. Enabling new forms of storytelling with a playable model of social interaction and a cutting-edge AI system called Comme il Faut, Prom Week invites players to engage with the “social physics” of an emergent, dynamic world. The result is a unique fusion of rich social simulation (surpassing in complexity even AAA titles like The Sims 3) with the fully realized dialogue of story-centered games like Dragon Age 2.
