Pressing Matters tells the story of a person who has gone on a holiday trip after undergoing prostate radiotherapy. To have a fun and exciting holiday, this person wants to complete as many activities as possible. Sadly, completing the activities won’t be as easy as expected because of their rectal toxicity condition. The person’s holiday will be disrupted by fecal urgencies, interfering with their fun day under the sun.
Throughout the day, players will need to keep a close eye on their soiling meter which shows the risk the avatar currently runs of soiling themselves. Your soiling risk will slowly increase over time until you either visit the toilet or soil yourself, which will reset the risk. The player character wants to complete activities on his to-do list. Longer activities make you feel much better, but you will also run a bigger risk of soiling yourself before being able to complete them, which will ruin your mood. This creates an exciting risk-reward mechanic which draws players into the game and makes them play the scenarios again to get a higher score.
