The other half of the game takes place in various made-up locations around Mbabane, such as nightclubs and cafes, where players regularly go on dates. In both parts of the game, players are regularly required to choose between several courses of action to progress a conversation or storyline with a friend or love interest. The decisions they make will influence the opinions and behavior of other characters, as well as the player’s own health and safety
