Fog of Love is essentially a relationship simulator for two players. You play a fictional couple and try to make their rollercoaster relationship work.

As you play you’re trying to figure out what your fictional partner wants. You may be sincere, understood, and aligned - or you may not. Whatever happens, you’ll end with a fun - or dramatic - love story.

Fog of Love is just released in the US and Europe (and soon in Canada and Australia). The game is getting stellar reviews and is possibly Game of the Year for Shut Up & Sit Down.
