Korean game studio Monster Guide Inc. launched their K-drama interactive game ‘I Fall in Love Too Easily’ on Kickstarter, a global crowdfunding platform focused on creativity. Through Kickstarter, pre-order of the game is available at 25% off retail price and various rewards will be given depending on the packages.
Media powerhouses like Netflix and Sony have already proved the potential for commercial success in interactive storytelling. These films, otherwise known as Full-motion Video (FMV) games, give viewers the power to make choices for the main character. These decisions then determine how the story unfolds and how it ends.
I Fall In Love Too Easily is a Korean rom-com FMV that turns the tried and true tropes of Korean dramas into a novel game. Viewers follow the protagonist Yeonwoo as she tries to piece together what happened the night before when she and her closest guy friends went out for drinks at a pocha (Korean bar). She wakes up the next morning to a massive headache, a phone that isn’t hers, and smudged lipstick. It’s up to the viewers to find out which of her friends she kissed and answer the ultimate question – friendship or love?
In between chapters of the story, viewers will be guided through lighthearted animated minigames that help Yeonwoo earn clues. This adds another layer of interactivity that most FMV games don’t have as they seldom blend the two mediums of live-action and animation. By helping Yeonwoo put on makeup or scavenge through her messy room, viewers will feel truly immersed in her shoes while staying entertained in contrasting mediums.
The game’s creators, Monster Guide, have been developing this story and technology since 2020. “We’re challenging the norms of storytelling,” says CEO Hyun Kyung Oh. “We’ve all had that face-palm moment when the K-drama lead falls for the wrong guy. This time, we’re letting our viewers decide who Yeonwoo falls for.”
A sneak peek into I Fall In Love Too Easily is available on their live Kickstarter campaign, which runs for a limited 30 days starting today. On this campaign, pre-order of the game is available at 25% off retail price. The game is scheduled to be released in November 2022 through Steam and Playstation.
