Winter Wolves has released Spirited Heart, a fantasy life simulation
game with RPG elements. It costs US$19.95 and is available for Mac,
PC and Windows platforms.
Here’s how the game is described: “Create a virtual alter ego picking
from an apparently normal human, a cute elf, or a wicked demoness.
Each character has different starting attributes and a unique
personality that will greatly influence the gameplay.
“Once the game starts, you’ll be able to run your life in a virtual
fantasy world. Choose a job from one of the 20 different ones
available. Raise your skills to be able to do better. Take time to
relax by going on vacation in several different locations.
Ultimately, find the romance that’s right for you.
“In the game there are six potential partners for your character —
two from each of the three races. From time to time you’ll randomly
encounter them, and your dialogue options will influence your
relationship. Each partner will have his own personality and will
react differently depending on which race you’re playing, offering
over 100 different dialogue combinations. Play with your character
for 10 in-game years in which you have to do your best. The full game
has 20 normal endings plus 6 special marriage endings, providing
hours of gameplay and lots of replayability.”
