Last week we asked you if you had ever been in a relationship with someone that you met through an MMO. This apparently was the case for game developer Nina Freeman, who created a new game called Cibele as a way to share the strange wonderfulness of falling in love with a person in a game.
Cibele, which comes out today, is a sort of immersive adventure game that takes place in a fictional MMORPG called Valtameri. Players handle both the in-game character while being able to access the lead character’s computer for emails and instant messages. There are also live action cutscenes starring the game’s creator, who is more or less reenacting how she handled an online romance at the age of 19.
While there is no actual multiplayer component here, its subject matter should be of interest to some of our readers, particularly those who have encountered significant others in virtual worlds.
