facade

facade is crazy. i've played one round so far. i thought they didn't hear what i said at all, because they almost never responded to me. but then, a little way in, trip said "oh, i've heard what you've been saying tonight" and then pretty accurately listed off a few things i said. the ai can't be that good - they haven't made a program that can come close to passing a turing test yet, i don't think. still pretty impressive. something about the gameplay is really engaging, in a way i didn't find with adventure or zork. the graphics make it a lot more immediate, even if your options are similarly limited. has anyone tried to pick up either trip or grace? i noticed a "kiss" option, but i was hoping they would stay together (they didn't). maybe next time around.
