Would you wanna meet up with me, like, in real life?
Cibele, the newest title from developer Nina Freeman, has announced its’ release date: November 2nd.
Nina Freeman (in association with Star Maid Games) brings to life the story of a a 19-year-old girl in a relationship with a man, over the Internet, that gets increasingly intimate as they continue correspondence. The game, based on a true story and real interactions, is designed to navigate the differences and collisions of real and digital bodies.
The game is billed as being about “love, sex, and the Internet,” and if it’s anything like Freeman’s last title – Freshman Year – then Cibele is bound to be both profoundly personal and frank. Despite the cheery, airy illustrations of Valtameri (an in-game, explorable game world) Cibele is intended for mature audiences.
Cibele takes place in several different spaces — both in the desktop of the user (named Nina), as well as the fantasy game space where she meets and befriends the young man in question, and in a series of short films that are meant to act as portals into viewing Nina’s world.
Cibele is set for release November 2, 2016 for $8.99 on PC & Mac through Steam.
