Media powerhouses like Netflix and Sony have already proved the potential for commercial success in interactive storytelling. These films, otherwise known as Full-motion Video (FMV) games, give viewers the power to make choices for the main character. These decisions then determine how the story unfolds and how it ends.
I Fall In Love Too Easily is a Korean rom-com FMV that turns the tried and true tropes of Korean dramas into a novel game. Viewers follow the protagonist Yeonwoo as she tries to piece together what happened the night before when she and her closest guy friends went out for drinks at a pocha (Korean bar). She wakes up the next morning to a massive headache, a phone that isn’t hers, and smudged lipstick. It’s up to the viewers to find out which of her friends she kissed and answer the ultimate question – friendship or love?
In between chapters of the story, viewers will be guided through lighthearted animated minigames that help Yeonwoo earn clues. This adds another layer of interactivity that most FMV games don’t have as they seldom blend the two mediums of live-action and animation. By helping Yeonwoo put on makeup or scavenge through her messy room, viewers will feel truly immersed in her shoes while staying entertained in contrasting mediums.
