Just finished main game logic for dating scenes. The entire dialogue system is rebuilt from a scratch (compared to Shoujo City 2D) and now is more elaborate and consistent. Every dateable girl in the game will be able to talk on a wide variety of topics, and will have an opinion (like/dislike) on all of them. Dating in specific places will now trigger talking about related topics (e.g., if you date near a Shinto shrine, your girl may talk about Shinto – and while some girls will like it, some others will not). That means now you’ll have to gradually learn about likes and dislikes of your girlfriend during the game.
The new dialogue system is now fully connected to eating/cooking feature, and gift feature. Every item/gift in the game now comes with topic tags, and while choosing, for instance, a volume of poetry or a new manga issue as a gift, you’ll have to remember what your girl said about books. And to make her talk about books, it may be a good idea to first have a date in a local library. While making an order in the cafe, you’ll have to remember if your girl likes tea or coffee, or if she prefers sea food or meat. All of this will add a lot more depth to dating gameplay compared to the original 2D version, and will make every girl in the game unique.
Everybody willing to contribute is welcome to participate in writing text dialogues for the game, or translating them.

Your game is progressing very smoothly! Good work there! I think it’s really awesome that you are giving the fans the opportunity to contribute to the game’s development. I also want to contribute but I’m not sure how it will work out but I’ll give it a shot one of these days. Until when can we send our contributions?
Just a minor suggestion; I hope if it’s okay writing it here but can you also include the option to do:
* head pats
Thank you for reading this and have a nice day.
There is no end date for any contributions. If the game becomes popular enough in the future and there will be an active community willing to write/translate new dialogues, I hope it will be a constant work in progress. The more dialogues on various topics there are, the more unique and distinct personalities of girls can be built with those. One of options I considered is letting the game to pull all xml files with dialogues directly from the wiki, so that everybody can always have the newest dialogues/translations without waiting for a new build release.
I am planning to include head pats, holding hands, kissing, and a few other interactions, but each of those will take time.
I have a question, I am using the steam version of the game, can anyone let me know how to get a REAL girlfriend because I don’t know how to switch away from the pillow and I want someone who can REALLY talk back.
Just start a new game from the main menu and after character creation choose a girl instead of pillow.
Thank you, I’ve just thought that ‘girl’ was the selection of how to change my gf/bf’s gender and I just didn’t know what button to press to switch it. 😛 I feel dumb now.
I was thinking if in a further update if your girlfriend likes the topic of cooking would it be possible if she can cook, I might sound dumb
I was thinking about something like that, but I’m not sure as yet how to turn this into some interesting gameplay mechanic. Should she cook to fulfil her own daily requests? Or should she just cook something random for the player, while your daily tasks to feed her remain the same?
I was also thinking if maybe it’s possible if after a few times your girlfriend says what she wants maybe she can talk about some conversation topics to get to know her, so you would have more to talk about instead of her saying “Please take care of me” and “Let’s do something”.
Hello, I am currently using the 09.19 version (I hope it is the newest one) on android. The game is really fun, I just wanted to ask are there any more dating spots in the non premium area, except by the pool at school. Thanks for still updating the game 😀
One more dating spot is on the school rooftop.
Im struggling on getting every girl other than the short one with black messy hair (I forgot her name) I understand I have to fill in the survey differently for each girl but I am not sure which answers to choose? Is there a way I can know what answers to choose I am very confused
If you choose “money” as your preferred gift, you’ll start with more money. If you choose “baking cookies” as your favorite pastime, you’ll start with more cooking points, etc. Most questions are quite obvious. Also, getting starting skill points is not critically important – you have enough time to get enough points for every girl in the game even if you start with all stats at zero.
Hello, may I ask if you can still date your roommate? I can’t do anything to her what lovers do.. Did it get taken out of the game?
iOS version was censored on request of the App Store. So now it’s “friendship simulator” instead of “dating simulator”.
