Its a visual novel, where the content and tone of your answers depend on what type of symbols you match for a angry, sad, joyous etc. response. The core mechanic of this is frankly pretty darn smart. It really feels like giving you more agency on which choice you'll choose as you also need to contemplate how to balance the board for which reactions. The story isnt particularly great and as you can see its not optimized for PC, but I enjoyed playing through the game for its main mechanic alone and I can easily see a more involved Visual Novel using this mechanic. Really, really, really cool.
