Super Seducer - How to Talk to Girls

Super Seducer - How to Talk to Girls is now available on Steam, offering a Windows and macOS FMV game where "world-renowned dating coach" Richard La Ruina will impart the techniques that helped transform him from "a self-confessed shy virgin" into "Europe’s top pick up artist in 2009." One might be tempted to say this is tone deaf in light of the current focus on the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, but it seems fair to think this was tone deaf before that, and the marketing suggests they don't mind if this ruffles a few feathers. A release trailer from a few weeks ago introduces La Ruina, who is incredibly handsome and described by Piers Morgan on TV as a "dick," which probably helps understand his success and why it can't be taught (our favorite aspect of the Steam listing is the user-defined tag calling it "psychological horror"). Here's part of the announcement that talks about this as a serious learning tool:

Discover what it takes to charm Super Seducer’s cast of a dozen elegant women, who bring their own personalities and dating experiences to each of the game’s ten unique settings, for added authenticity and hilarious improvisational moments that run the gamut from adorable, laugh-out funny to downright cringe-worthy. Branching dialogue-driven action options allow players to learn and experience proper seduction tactics with instant feedback. Players that make the wrong move in their flirtatious conquests face a variety of awkward and over-the-top negative outcomes inspired by unsuccessful “strategies” observed in the real world by Richard La Ruina and his team of female consultants.

“Super Seducer is not only an incredibly amusing game, it’s a fantastic learning tool based on realistic human sexual psychology and real-world dating rituals that reward players for making better choices when approaching women and punishes them for making a mistake or acting inappropriately,” said Richard La Ruina. “The team of women that consulted on the project, including the game’s strong female cast, believe that Super Seducer educates men on the do’s and don’ts of seduction, making men much less likely to offend women after they’ve played the game. My time-tested, research-backed techniques are sure to help anyone meet the partner of their dreams!”
