Platonically, Of Course – The Friendship Experiment

A unique blend of simulation and adventure game, Platonically, Of Course will put you in the role of Jess Kim, coordinator at Friendship Matters, a company founded with the goal of bringing people together in a time where we grow more and more apart from each other.

Their newest experiment raises a question: Can a computer form friendships based on people’s profiles? The company says yes, but every computer makes mistakes here and there.. And that’s where you come in!
