Façade is billed as an interactive drama and i gotta say that's a pretty accurate description. You the player are invited to hang out with Grace and Trip, two of your oldest friends who happen to be married with each other. Pretty soon you realize that everything isn't so great in marriage land and that you can either help them or just stick around to see the fireworks, the choice is up to you. In Façade you use the arrow keys to move and a text parser that is used to communicate with the fully voiced characters, i was a little surprised at the variety of the terms it can pick up and the responses you could get. The "gameplay" is basically you steering the conversation into a specific topic, for example you could ask any number of subjects and depending on your actions the "drama" will end in a different way each time that you play.
In conclusion Façade is a pretty unique experience that is worth a try if you have ever wanted to be part of a drama up close.
