    Ever wanted to date a Phone? Excuse me?! Shame on you! You can lie to me, y'know, but you CAN'T LIE TO GOD.

    Dialtown is a dating sim where most people have phones for heads. Women have typewriters. Also, dogs have gramophones for heads. Aaaand, cats have keyboards. The list goes on. Yeah, I'm being serious right now. No, put that straitjacket away.

    The game's a visual novel where you wander around the town of Dialtown, seeking romance, all because you want someone to pay you into a funfair, all so you can find a dank pit in which to lay your eggs. Yeah.

    There's several dateable protagonists, from Karen, a bored bank-teller printer who's extremely dissatisfied with her life and just wants to feel things again, to Randy, who juggles working as an operator for a local phone hotline and working as a bird-wrangler for animal-control.

    It’s not so much a deconstruction of the dating sim, but rather a warped version of it. Dialtown applies its unhinged writing to the genre, and it works exceedingly well. There were many times when I’d elbow my husband to look at whatever the heck was on my screen at that moment. I tried to explain the concept of the game to him and he responded with “please stop.” That’s a win in my books.
