Super interesting concept, but I guess it won't get a lot of attention cause online mode will be a hassle to set-up.

The genius of the idea is in someone you don't know telling you a story - if it's local multiplayer it'd be like using some chat protocol while you're sitting in the same room as the person you're chatting with.

Anyway, hope we're gonna see stuff like this more often, polished and properly done.

The quality and immersion of the game all depends on the maturity and skill of both players. It's a really cool idea though, kind of like the concretization of a drawing board/chat rpg.

Theoretical online match.

Player 1: "Oh, hello again mary!" *gropes mary*
storyteller: *facepalm* player 2 disconnected! searching for new storyteller!

When you buy it, you receive 2 download links. One for you, one for your friend.
It is meant for friends, instead of strangers you meet on the Internet.
