Date, create, and share!

Assuming the role of a male high school student in Japan, the player will meet, interact with, and date a number of female characters with the goal of winding up with one of them at the end of a 101-day calendar. Yeah, you've seen this all before...or have you?

In other romance sims, there's little reason to replay the game again once you've pursued all the characters you're interested in. But Heartache 101 allows for a variable female cast. The number of characters in the game is completely open-ended!

You can create new characters and add them to the game, share them with other users, and add characters created by other users. You can create the images for custom characters from a template, or use images you created yourself, or images from any source. (only "standing" images of characters can be imported; there is no event CG in the game) A simple scripting language is provided for writing story events. You can also customize some of the music.

The game system itself is in part a visual novel interface with gameplay that include conversational decision-making, board game-like mechanics, stat management, financial management, and more.

Nah that not date simulation, more stop rpg, AND offline...
Much better than i expected. Just finished this for the first time and i noticed that i only met 5 girls through the whole game. There was supposed to be only 1 hidden girl iirc but both of the first year girls never got registered on the list as well. Also after the credit, there was a notification that some clean mode and 151 mode... was unlocked but i couldn't find them anywhere.

You're choices do matter. It's pretty unlikely that you see all of the "non secret" girls on your first try.

About "clean mode" and "151 mode": the next time you start a fresh game you'd be ask if you want to enable one or both of them (or leave both of them of).

As a side note: don't enable "clean mode" unless you have downloaded some of those custom content packs ...
And even then you should be sure that this pack isn't depending on the build-ins (most of them do!)

Thanks you for the explanation. This is such a fun game. Gotta fisnish the vanilla heroines before moving on to custom contents. Wonder if there's any yandere or delinquent girl in this game. Oh and sorry for the noob question but which button to press to take screenshot?

There's no real Yandere, I'm afraid.

One of my girls has a yandere-ish side if you pick the right choices (I'd rather say the wrong ones. It doesn't lead to her best ending.)

Some of the girls in the custom content have deliquent tendencies, for example Eliza.

As for screenshots: as far as I know there's no build in function in game. You could use the key and a graphics program for this.

Hmm... it seens at what CHOISES player do, some close more than open and some open more than close.

Well, some times is better use just one custom story at time, or... cam wery complex and misscontinue thinks...

I think there was a cancelled character that was supposed to be a yandere at one point? I would call 21 Ways a delinquent, though, it has been quite some time.

Seira (or how was her name?) was always brutalizing him but she wasn't really after her competition ... so I wouldn't call her a Yandere - anyway that route was never finished ...

You're right about 21 ways, as I recall her she was a quite a rebel.

And sure, I think 21 Ways would count as a delinquent.

yan? pardon... 21 ways...

The character I was thinking about wasn't Seira. Seira is still on the ID-listing...

ID 27 = Katanashi Seira {triad2/Noone42, in progress}

...whereas the character I was thinking about has been officially cancelled, and would no longer be on the list. Possibly the explanation as to the gap in ID #30?

Dam shame :( She looks good, and Tsukino Emi right below her as well.

You can play both of them, they both still are part of the download pac right on this page.

If you're pursuing any of the "incomplete" routes, you shouldn't be disappointed if they and seemingly half way through or are bugged in any other way. Or extremely short.

They're flagged "Incomplete" for a reason. Some of those stuff is pretty good, too.

I know man. It's just knowing that the creator officially canceled the character really killed the mood. By the way, i've finished 3 routes from scratch, no load at day 101 and choose the other ending since i wanted to experience most of the events involving the characters i'm pursuing. Anyway, after all that i'm kinda burnt out, probabbly will play again after a break. So in the meantime,do you guys know of any game similar to this? Doesn't have to be Rpg, visual novel would be fine as well.
