Dating sims are very similar in that the reader chooses from on-screen options but the purpose is to develop skills and personal relationships with in-game characters.

These games can have rather complex paths with multiple endings.

This workshop is open to everyone of all genders, age, and skill level.

A romantic simulation game ( ren’ai shimyurēshon gēmu) in Japan, can involve several technical elements such as a time limit, several statistics such as looks and charm which can be boosted through exercise, or an “attraction meter” which can increase or decrease depending on one’s decisions.

For example, I've produced several visual novels and dating sims.

In this workshop, you will learn to: What is a dating sim?

Or perhaps you want to mix some relationship elements into your mainstream video game. The first decision you make will unlock a major Event Flag for your story/game: If you're not creating a product with the intention of selling it, then know what you're getting into.

Do not talk about your awesome plans until your project is almost finished.

The English-speaking Ren Ai Game community has too many examples of games which only had demos, or which never amounted to more than ambitious plans.

The second decision which will shape your game: Who is your main character, and what is their sexuality?
