There are 8 different endings and 5 characters of possible friendship and romantic interest.
This sim date is probably the least “sim date-y” out of all of my dating simulations. I guess it could be described as part adventure, part dating sim, and part strategy? Somewhat, I’d say… some parts of this game might drive you “easy-going gamers” a little nuts. ;w;
If you’re really not interested in the story and just want the romance, then make sure to select Free Mode in the menu where you fill out your name, select your star sign, etc.
But do note that the romance may feel a bit rushed if you skip all of the story scenes… and game play may seem a bit confusing to some because it skips all the tutorials too.
Another note about Free Mode: it’s good for getting other events and endings you perhaps didn’t get when you played the first time through in Story Mode. It’s also good if you just want to collect all of the pressed pennies, stickers, and photos.
