How do I Play? - my non-conventional apartment

Postby Faile » 23 Sep 2011, 11:16

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone has had a splendid day!

I'm writing this post as a sort of critique on the game. Well less of a critique more just my thoughts of it so far as well as how I have approached the game.

I just started the game a day ago so yes... I have not experienced the long-term play.

BUT!!! That is exactly why I want to talk about my thoughts and approach to the game.

The core mechanics of the game seem very straightforward. I would break the game down to:

(1) the basic gameplay mechanics as in: leveling up; achievements/goals; making money; buying to further customize; mini-games; and all the other good stuff.

All these mechanics at a glance makes it seem like the game is filtering people into a long-term investment in time. The slow pace at which you start and the lack of money to buy all the good stuff you want.

and then there is what I think is the most exciting part of the game...

(2) meta-gameplay: the whole voting system; trying to be the best or most "beautiful"; the community aspect of the game

This is where I would ask the question... "does having more money/time played make you more likely to be on the top?"

In concept I would say... "absolutely not!" Someone who has played less who has a better "fashion sense" or whatnot should have just as much a chance to win! In fact, the key to being on top I believe is to PROMOTE YOURSELF! Talk to everyone! I understand why they have a button to clear your comments because lets face it... you gotta spam people to vote for you! This is why I know I will never be... the "most beautiful" cuz face it I hate spamming people... which leads me to finally get to how "I PLAY THIS GAME"

-- HOW I PLAY --

Personally, I'm not very satisfied with the core mechanics of the game and the tools available. I am also not very satisfied with how unrefined the community usability is... communication/organization not very refined or easy to use. But that is besides the point.

It was these restrictions I saw in my ability to customize in the beginning being broke in the game that made me try to find a more creative way to approach how I customized my lady. Most profiles I click on do not have furniture and focus primarily on clothes. Most apartments that I visit are all decorated somewhat the same way (due to the fact of the limited options and mechanics to customization available). (I also don't mean the things I saw were bad in any way.)

So, I went the route of taking advantage of the ability to manipulate objects when customizing the apartment (although limited). This is was the most "creative"(allowed me more control and customization) tool I had at my disposal. So I went and bought the cheapest most simple furniture items I could find and tried to make something good without having to wait for more money.

IN THE END: I feel like you can make great things out of anything! A little creativity can go a long way.

The results? I would have tried more things but I'm out of monies :pinch:

My main hooks are levelling up, clothes and friends, and that's what I play for. I voted for levelling up and friends. I of course love dressing up my lady as well :P I love everything but I wanted to give a more specific vote.

That's a very creative idea you had there with your lady & apartment -- very artistic :D

Had it not been for the MMO-ish parts (talking to friends) I would not have played for so long... it's a very casual browser game. Usually I'm playing another game whilst playing LP. Result? XP galore, popularity down...
