Choices are a role-playing mobile game series created by Pixelberry Studios. The game follows plots from visual novels that either come as standalone titles or in series.
When Choices was first released in 2016, it featured only three stories and genres. Initial genres included romance, mystery, and fantasy. The game currently has ninety-four stories, and more additions could be on their way.
Players require keys to progress in chapters. The game currently allows players to store a maximum of two keys. However, with a VIP subscription, you can store more keys.
Alright, let’s discuss crucial aspects of the game. Read on!
How To Get Keys On Choices
Some players have tried to download hacks to enable them to get game keys faster than normal.
However, there’s only one way to get keys on Choices: waiting for a minimum of three hours. You can also get the maximum number of free keys by playing the game often.
If you have only one key left when playing Choices, a timer begins to read automatically. The game stops when the timer reaches zero. You’ll have to wait for at least three hours to resume.
If you have a VIP subscription, you’ll probably have more game time before you run out of keys.
Choices Gameplay And Mechanics
The game deploys different gameplay mechanics. These include the following:
Diamonds, also known as premium, are used to enhance dialogue, plot, and the visual aspects of characters.
You do not need diamond choices to finish storylines and complete basic goals. However, you require them to have a good level ending.
Diamond choices include:
- Scene extension with love interests with intimacy inclusion
- Improving the relationships, you have with secondary characters
- Improving the main character’s wardrobe
- Love interests wardrobes and gifts
Overriding diamond choices:
This feature is currently available on Most Wanted and The Crown and The Flame series.
It enables the player to collect skills, power, prestige, and legend points when correct choices are made. In place of diamonds, players can use these points when faced with hard decisions.
You cannot select the option without enough points, as it appears grayed-out in the game.
Impact of choices:
Your character’s relationship with others in the game can either improve or go downhill with the choices you make. Relationships are usually denoted by a heart sign for romance and a positive sign for relationships.
However, in some books, choices that boost relationships with some characters may decrease relationship points with others and vice versa.
When faced with this situation, players can structure their gameplay to choose between characters they want to win over and those they don’t want to.
Also, in most books, the choices you make are often remembered by other characters, affecting their dialogue and action towards you.
This impact is evident in chapter two of High School Story Book Two. If you choose to keep Koh’s secret even when under Isa, she’ll remember it, and Michael will reveal to you how much respect she has for you in chapter ten.
However, if you decide not to keep Koh’s secret, she will end up being rude towards you.
A timer appears next to the list of choices in cases of timed choices. A certain amount of time is allocated to players to make choices.
Choosing the right option yields a favorable outcome. The result is the opposite with a wrong decision. The best option in most cases is to allow the timer to run out.
Texting: Texting was first featured in the Chat series. Players can push the blue button-down and patiently wait for the circle to fill up to enable texts to flow automatically.
Although Choices initially began with three series, over two dozen series have now been released.
Some notable Choices series include:
- The Crown and Flame
- Most Wanted
- Rules of Engagement
- Endless Summer
- Home for the Holidays
