December 18th, 2012 – Award winning visual novel developer Winter Wolves releases the third chapter of the Heileen series, under the form of a funny life simulation game with light-comedy setting.
This last chapter continues the story from the end of the second game and takes place in the Caribbean islands.
After being rescued by Captain Morgan and his pirate crew, they set off to find and reunite with her old friends. Aboard the ship, the Morning Star, Heileen ponders on what she'll like to do with her life.
Along the way she will meet new characters, discover additional things about her old friends and maybe learn a profession thanks to the new skills system. The Virtues/Sins gameplay introduced in the second game is also present: every choice in the game will change Heileen's personality, in a wide array of possibilities. Saint or sinner? That will be up to you to decide!
Four dateable romances: during the game you can romance Morgan, John, Jonathan or the new face Sebastian. Each new romance comes with unique scenes and a special ending image.
Dating sim gameplay: the third chapter of Heileen plays like a dating/stat-raising sim, with lots of different skills to learn
Sins/Virtues system: the Sins/Virtues system is back! Each choice in the game matters, every choice is important to shape Heileen's personality
14 unique Profession Endings: decide Heileen's future by learning one of the 14 available professions and unlock a special ending image for each of them.
Level Up: like in a RPG, you need to level up your basic skills to have access to the advanced skills, requiring more strategy to play
Lots of unique scenes: featuring a game story much longer than the previous two titles combined together!
The game also includes an original theme song composed by Matthew Myers and performed by Kathleen "Irulanne" Boucher.
Heileen 3: New Horizons is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The main game has a free demo available on the official website at http://www.winterwolves.com Registration costs only $19.99. A separate version is also available with bonus content including five original songs in mp3, extra artwork, and wallpapers.
