Romantic relationships have been the subject of games for some time now, but the Together indie game is perhaps the most intricate exploration of a relationship ever seen in the gaming industry. Placing players in a loving relationship with someone they care about, the game asks players how much they are willing to give to keep that relationship alive. The concept may seem simple but the Together indie game aims to explore how taxing a relationship can be. The in-game partner will offer up random personalities but will either ask a lot from the player, grow increasingly distant or simply lose interest in the player.

The ultimate goal of this game is to make the right choices to save this relationship without losing yourself completely. Just like real life, the game does not offer up an easy happy ending. Choices that are quite difficult, will force players to consider their actions and will lead to multiple endings. Together may not draw in all players, but its realistic exploration of love offers up something unseen and incredibly introspective into the gaming industry.
