Lovely Pleasant Teatime Simulator
Not strictly a new game (but new to Itch), Lovely Pleasant Teatime Simulator is a competitive text-based tea party simulator. You get a point for every successful social interaction, and are invited to share a screenshot of your final score with the hashtag #LovelyPleasantTeatime to try and claim the top slot. At the time of writing, the world best is currently 42 points.
This game got a mention in Rock, Paper Shotgun shortly after release for reasons I am still unable to fathom, so I hope it’ll go down well here too. Sessions typically last no more than a couple of minutes, so if you’re on the fence about giving it a try I’d say go for it. What do you have to lose except your dignity and the respect of everybody in Mrs. Weatherby’s social circle?
