Today's Game: Love, by Contrebasse.

The last time I took love advice from a video game I spent like two lives defeating a dragon only to find out the princess was in another castle.
But this game, Love, is different. You're a square, and you gain happiness by getting close to other squares. Get too close, and you die, (not very catholic or maybe it is)
When you die, the game gives you advice on how to play better, but in a way that makes you feel like maybe it's not talking about the game at all:
"Don't stay with the same others out of habit. If it's obvious you'd be happier elsewhere, move on right away instead of hoping for a change that won't happen."
All in all, a nice playing experience.
