February 1st, 2010 - Winter Wolves, developers of several award-winning dating sim and visual novels, has announced the release of The Flower Shop, a dating and farming simulation.
"I wanted to create a story with universal appeal, with strong romantic elements and enchanting artwork. Life, love, and family are something we all deal with, and all the characters are connected. The decisions of player affect not only his or her relationships, but the way the characters interact with each other." - said Celso Riva, game designer/programmer of the game.
The game takes place in Fairbrook, a small farming community in northern California. Steve is a college freshman with relationship troubles. His girlfriend just dumped him, and his father is angry at him for his poor grades. As punishment, Steve is sent to work on his uncle's farm for the summer in the hope that he'll learn self discipline. Although he initially resents the idea of spending a summer toiling away in a small town away fromhis home, he soon makes friends with many of the people in the community of Fairbrook. Among his new friends are three charming girls each with her own hopes and dreams. Will one of these relationships bloom into romance, will Steve make up with his girlfriend, or will this summer leave him alone?
Everything depends on the heart and determination of the player.
The game features beautiful anime-style artwork, a scheduler that allows players to plan their weeks, and a farming sim where players can grow and sell crops. With nine variable endings that change based on your interaction with characters, The Flower Shop is a sweet and engaging tale for everyone.
