For the people who bought surviving high school...

Has anyone bought the "Summer Fun" pack? I was considering it because Ep.2's description said you control a person through all 4 years of highschool. For all the girls who bought the game (not the pack), it says you control a guy.

Nope. In fact, I haven't even bought the game. What is it like?

@Random_Guy: You make choices for a person which may cause his or her life to be better or worse. Of course like other games you win with a good ending and lose with a bad one so you can always keep trying. There are also bonus scenes for when you perfectly do a scenario. Episodes come every week and you can buy them before or after they come. There are also other episode packs you can buy.

The game is pretty much all text with a few minigames.

Oh ok. Do you think it's worth for what it's asking for though?

I'm not so sure. I play it on and off. It's like pocket god, you play when a different episode comes out. Sometimes you play more to win and to get to the bonus scene. If you like role-playing games you might like this because you control the character almost completely. It's just that you have to pick one of the given choices.

You also have to remember that it is text based. The minigames are a few word games and for the free one that comes with it has a football minigame.

Meh. I hated Pocket God so I think I'll give this one a pass. Every time there is a new update, you play it for 6 seconds, and then you don't touch it again until the next update.

I was thinking about this too.

I enjoyed the main game, even though some of it was a bit boring (i.e. the football sections).

But found it a bit jarring to go from the guy you were controlling to the now airing episodes, as everything you can done was forgotten, so you lost all continuity.

Sounds quite good if you can play through a few years of it, so might give it a go...
