Hello from the team here at Echo Chamber Games!
We're so excited to finally say that Table Manners: The Physics-based Dating Game is out on Steam today, handing romantics the world over the chance to find love in the middle of abject chaos!
Taking on the role of a disembodied hand with a knack for catastrophe, this tongue-in-cheek experience hands people the challenge of finding love when even the simplest of exercises - like pouring a glass of wine for your would-be partner, or lighting a candle to aid the ambience - is a mammoth make or break task.
Add in some especially unique settings - dates aboard a cruise ship, or a mile up in the air on a private jet are anything but everyday occurrences - and you’ve got an experience where every moment is utterly fraught with danger and hilarity, and fit to rival any real-life liaison you may have lined up for this year’s Valentines. Table Manners also features a ‘left-handed mode’ to ensure everyone can get it on the affair.
We're so proud of the game and can't wait for you to all get your hands on it. It's been a labour of love for the whole team, and it's going to be amazing to see the weird and wonderful things you all get up to.
But wait! Before you head off for your first date, here are some handy tips to help you on your way:
Just like the real world of dating, there's actually a goal to all this madness. Make your way through enough dates and someone might have a special question for you…
Having trouble picking up that pesky pepper pot? Don't forget you can customise your controls at any time in the settings menu. Note: One hole for salt, many holes for pepper
If your precious ketchup bottle goes tumbling to the floor, don't fret: any object that isn't obtained via the in-game ordering menu will respawn on the table faster than you can say, 'when'
Mix it up! The more varied your dates, the more rewards you'll ultimately unlock - just like real life! Aim for the most hearts to achieve even more unlockables
Grab yourself a G&T and keep your eyes peeled for a booze-fuelled level modifier called 'Liquid Courage' that puts a drunken spin on the world of dating
Be sure to check out the Table Manners' built-in 'How to play' guide in the main menu if you get stuck along the way
Table Manners launches today on Steam for PC for £14.99/€16.99 /$17.99.
Let us know what you think, and look forward to chatting with you in the forums!
Lots of love,
