Heileen Dating Sim In Development
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Tycoon Games has announced work on a new dating sim, Heileen. The game will follow the adventures of a young woman onboard a ship traveling to the New World in the 17th century. In the game players will help Heileen find her true love. More details about the new dating sim will be released in the future.

After the success of Summer Session, we're working on another game. It's an adventure game (or better, visual novel) settled in the 17th century.

You control the character of Heileen, the granddaughter of a famous merchant, who sails onboard of the Cat's Dreams, a caravel traveling to the New World.

She will met a variety of characters, and who knows, maybe she'll find her true love?

The fun thing is that I’m attempting a sort of new genre: dating sim (or romance adventure) from a woman’s perspective! It means that the game will have its own variety of characters and some will be more polite than others, but in general, I’ll need to put the right dose of “sex appeal” without being too explicit.

There will be also some very cute characters (two cats) and in general a more relaxing atmosphere. For now I’m not going to put any sort of scheduling mechanism, also because the game takes place for almost all its length onboard of the Cat’s Dream (the ship name).

I have added a nice feature though which is called “Quests”. In practice during the game you’ll be able to find quests to solve, that will award points. Discovering a new quest will grant you 2 points, and solving it another 3 points.

At the end of the game you’ll be awarded a score based on how many total points you scored, similarly to what happens in Sid Meier’s games
