Through a series of discussions, you'll work through a slew of potential suitors on both sides before finally landing your life's love. Unlike the bizarrely addictive DS dating game Feel the Magic: XX-XY, Sprung has no action sequences.
The "dating sim" has been a thing in the Japanese game marketplace for quite a long time, whether it be an RPG-style stat grinder a la Tokimeki Memorial or a straight-forward visual novel. (who later changed their name to Longtail Studios and developed the illustrious Best Friends Tonight, also for the DS, and Grey's Anatomy: The Video Game) and published by Ubisoft at the launch of the DS, is of the latter.These types of games have never caught on in North America for any number of reasons, and Sprung does absolutely nothing to win any points in its favor. Part of it was to try and get an outside perspective. I guess I've used her name enough and my camera enough that you already know by now. Maybe it was a stupid idea to post this thread in the first place. Sprung is one of the first titles for the shiny new Nintendo DS, though it features no action sequences using the system's stylus nor does it really need both screens. Sprung has no nudity, and is in fact remarkably tame even though it deals with college-age young adults and a week of ostensibly hooking up with as many people as possible.
Basically, Sprung is a G-rated version of those Japanese dating sims, which combine Choose Your Own Adventure sequences with nudity.
The basic plot: You play as either Brett or Becky, who of course have been in unspoken love since childhood.
Brett, Becky and their various friends all meet at a ski retreat for the aforementioned supposed debauchery.
Sprung is a dating game that takes place at an upscale ski resort.
Play as either Brett or Becky, two young and attractive adults, on vacation - each "looking for love".
The dialogue has that sort of quality where it seems like it was written in a foreign language and then translated into English, but it wasn't.
