Each character has their own unique background stories and missions that players must strive to fulfill. A unique feature in gameplay is that the success of each mission depends on the player’s skill in interacting with other players, which takes place primarily through chat functionality.  There are no pre-populated questions and answers, rather every player can let their fantasy run free in trying to persuade others players.

The story contains tens of millions of different outcome variations, giving the game previously undreamt of depth and replay value.
