My House, My Rules

In "My House, My Rules: A Social Call Training Simulation", two players can practice decoding an acquaintance's home environment and responding to social cues with confidence! Player 1 (a.k.a. "The Ghost") explores the home, revealing the owner's tastes and preferences. With limited visual communication options, a subtle hint is left behind for anyone who might come calling. Player 2 (a.k.a. "The Guest") must then attend a dinner in the home, reacting to requests from the host with as much accuracy and respect as possible using the remnants of their spectral sidekick's preliminary investigation. The two players are not allowed to talk during the game! The only form of communication allowed is through the stickers that The Ghost places in the level.
