Summer Session (Winterwolves.com)
When a shy student signs up for summer classes, he didn’t know what to expect. Maybe he’ll finally have a girlfriend, or maybe he’ll remain as lonely as he’s always been.
This is not exactly an interesting premise. In fact, the only reason I bought this game is that Celso Riva is working on another one called Roommates that he claims is sort of a successor to this one. As I said, the plot is some shy guy trying to find a girlfriend in six weeks while still trying to ace his exams. He can pursue the outgoing Rachel, his teacher Jenny, the studious Midori, the athletic Tanya and the eccentric Emma.
The game play is about choosing your schedule for the week and making the correct dialogue choices when pursuing a character.
You can study to do well on exams, work for money, go partying, play sports, play video games, rest or exercise. No matter what, you have to attend class every day.
This game is addictive but not that interesting. I give it 3 out of 10; compared to Celso Riva’s later games, it falls short.
