Surprise, you handsome rogue.
SO MUCH ADORB FEELSSSS~!
Man, I remember having so much shitty luck in this game. It's either die forever alone because no one wants you or get killed while shopping.
I would usually end up as this overly amazing fellow and save at least two lives before the game was finished. My trustworthiness and intelligence were usually in the range of 90 to 97. Can't really remember much other than that.
I played today as a male for the first time.
I started off as a charming, sporty, intelligent young chap who was nearly killed 3 times. Everything changed when I accidentally got into a fight and was stabbed in the chest.
It all went downhill from then. I got depressed and sick, was cheated on by all three girlfriends, lost most of my stats, didn't finish college, and my parents ended up hating me. Oops.
I just played as well and I had the BEST RUN EVER in this playthrough.
Ended up finally finishing college, getting a good well-paid job, got married, had a child, bought a lot of shit, my health (although I started out with really bad one) was high for an elderly, my child actually got married and then I managed a peaceful death. Wow. I'll never have that kind of run again.
Finally tried it. BEST LIFE EVAR. Everyone loved me. I died peacefully in bed with pretty much no possessions.

Our little Lloddy is growing up.
We made it through babyhood without spontaneously combusting! Way to go, guys!
Now, let's see what the damage is…
I'm starting to think Lloddy won't be the sort of kid who gets perfect attendance.
But we aren't even gentle at all
How can we be at all charming
What sort of sorcery is this
Well, that doesn't matter right now. We survived a turbulent and confusing time of our lives, and now it's time to turn to the next page and begin another chapter.
You did good, internet parents. You did good.
They grow up so fast!
Very young kids get away with being gremlins not being gentle and yet called adorable/charming. I think that's the logic in play.
I probably stated the obvious and missed the joke.
I'm just amused that we can bite other children and wail at our parents constantly and, because we once smiled at our grandmother, be considered a charming baby.
I went through and took a few dozen screenshots yesterday. Now all I've got to do is draw pictures for them later tonight. I'm really looking forward to this chapter -- childhood is always full of the craziest hijinks/the occasional near molestation experience.
Our first harrowing childhood experience: a trip to the dentist.
But Lloddy can take it. She's got no gentleness to hold her toughness back, and she will be strong.
That's our little badass.
OUR LLODDY STRONG LIKE MOOSE.
MOOSE NOT FEAR DENTIST.
Children *sigh* they grow up so fast~ *tear in cheek*
Also, Llody's so adorable. Permission to draw fanart pl0x?
Permission absolutely granted!
Expect it sometime later when I get home and fix my scanner~
On the other hand, gonna play the browser version at school again because of this LP~!
Aw, Lloddy, I am proud. Truely she will be the bravest of the brave.
I fucking love this game. I always laugh at when the child finds a playgirl magazine.
Oh, I remember playing the free PC version of this. It was pretty good, but GOD relationships were difficult.
The trick is to get hitched before the asshole has a chance to cheat on you. Then you milk him for a kid and ignore him forever. Just like in real life!
Haha, it's been a while. This game is so preachy sometimes. And is quite obviously sponsored by psychologists. "TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING WITH A PROFESSIONAL YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING YOURSELF".
And a new, annoying discovery: when playing as a boy, the "washing machine" incident is a "lawn mower" incident. Because little girls should stay in the laundry room!
Edit: And while girls play with their mother's jewels, boys play with their dad's calculator, since they are naturally smarter ("Dad's brand new electronic calculator" - as opposed to what, an abacus? This game is so ooold)
Yeeeeah. I remember when I got the incident where a friend comes out to me in high school as a lesbian. I have the option of "Be really supportive and offer to listen to her about it" or "Be uncomfortable and tell her to talk to a professional psychologist about it." If you choose the former, she leans on you too much and you can't cope and it ruins your whole friendship.
Be careful, kids! If your friends aren't straight, you'd better never talk to them about that, or they'll stop being your friends!
I played the online version - ended up being loved by everyone, despite various hardships, extremely intelligent right from the get-go, a paragon of virtue and honesty etc etc. Actually, the only time any of my stats dropped below 50 was calmness during the adulthood phase- which then sorted itself out a few turns later. She ended up marrying her second boyfriend from adolescence (the first was somewhat awful and she dumped him after the first date), who was generally lovely. Had a daughter in young adulthood, then a miscarriage, then adopted another boy. Saw the girl get married and have a child, then died in bed of old age, still whith a job in creativity and with plenty of money. I felt very warm and fuzzy after that ^_^
Now I'm scared to play again, incase I end up as a miserable failure this time.
If you're going to be a miserable failure, a video game an ideal place to do it!
I have played the online version but I don't think I got beyond childhood. I'm enjoying seeing someone else playing it more, honestly.
I think I have to agree with you on that- I'm pretty bad at games like this if I can't completely choose my characters personality. Why does this game assume my character has friends?
That can't be right.
