About the Game

Spirited Heart is a fantasy life simulation game.

Create your fantasy alter ego choosing between an apparently normal human, a cute elf and a wicked demoness: they behave differently in the various dialogue choices you'll encounter during the game.

Once the game start you'll be able to run your life in a virtual fantasy world: choose a job from the 20 different ones available, but carefully check the minimum requirements.

Each starting job will improve some of your basic character skills, giving you the possibility to unlock more advanced jobs once you have trained your character long enough.

From time to time, random events will occur and you'll also make random encounters: there are six potential partner for your character in the game, two for each one of the three races. Each partner will have his own personality and will react differently depending on which race you're playing, offering over 100 different dialogue combinations!

Can you win their hearts and maybe, one day, marry one of them?

Play with your character for 10 in-game years in which you have to do your best! The full game has 20 normal endings plus 12 special marriage endings, providing hours of gameplay and lots of replayability.

Can you see all the different endings?

Spirited Heart is a difficult game to recommend. Fans of dating and life management sims will no doubt be quickly immersed, but for everyone else, I doubt the game will maintain their interest.

Although your character will always be female, you are allowed to choose three different races to choose from: human, elf, and demon. Each race has particular, inherent stats, and through the life choices you navigate, those stats are adjusted to create a custom character. I played through the game once with each race, and while I ended up with a demure elf and human, my demon was delightfully spunky. There is a full roster of individuals your character can date, including male and female options. The potential lovers are fantastically varied and interesting, but sometimes winning the affections of a particular person takes a little trial and error.

You start the game as a adult who has just moved into her first apartment, and the game will end when one of a variety of endings is reached. The experience will either end when you reach the age of 30, when you get married, or when you fulfill the goal set by the goddess of your race. At a certain point in your life, the goddess will appear with a specific job goal for you, and if you meet it before the age of 30, she will grant you a wish, and this will trigger the end of the game.

Much of the game comes down to spamming jobs. Jobs are completed by random dice rolls, and you must balance your character's work life with an appropriate amount of rest. Jobs earn you money which allow you to train skills, visit exotic locals which also increase skills, and pay taxes. The game indicates that if you have no money when it is time to pay taxes, you go to jail. Sometimes, random events such as bandit attacks will dramatically decrease your available currency, and at other times, you'll have the option to be charitable to a customer at a loss of money but with a reward of stat increases. While many of the stat increases feel arbitrary, they are actually beneficial -- depending on your career goal. If your career goal is outside of one of the stat categories, it is a good idea to ignore those options which pump unnessessary stats and focus on reaching your goal. If you are interested in a potential spouse centralized to one career path, then you will also be spamming that career to win their heart. Once your love interest confesses their attraction to you and you move in with them, you can navigate the game in such a way that you no longer have to visit that career option but still end up marrying them.

After the first playthrough or two, you'll have the hang of the game. It is a delightful experience initially, but the fun wears down with necessary stat-pumping and job-spamming. I found myself clicking through all options as quickly as possible to get to the next random encounter, where I would hopefully progress the relationship I had been fostering. There's a lot of charm and terrific artwork to Spirited Heart, but the $20 price point feels unfair. This is a $5 experience and no more, so if you are interested in the romantic notions of a charming young girl, you will be well-advised to wait for a bundle or sale.

This game is fun, but pretty shallow. There is very little story to it- essentially the game is about building your stats through training and working jobs so that you can get other jobs that pay better or raise other stats. Only recommended if you can get it for under $5 or so.

This is a slice of life simulation in the vein of Magical Diary or Long Live the Queen; however unilke those games which are actually worth paying for, this one sadly, is not.

While the world presented to you in the game is interesting you ultimately learn very little about it; there are three characters you can play as and many choices for each of them, but ultimately your choices are shallow and don't really matter much, as the game doesn't really differ based on what choices you make, and game play stays exactly the same whether you've mastered magic, or become a professional dominatrix.

There are ten choices for romantic interests (five male, five female); but good luck getting with the one you want. Your relationship advances through a series of random events with the characters in question and you can go whole playthroughs without ever getting a random event with the lover you want to pursue. And then the romance system is basically bunk anyway. Your relationship is a gauge consisting of five hearts and the better your relationship the more hearts are filled... in theory. I had my romantic "interest" proposing to me at two hearts, and the only reason he was even my romantic interest is because he just happened to show up more often than the guy I actually wanted to pursue; and thus our relationship progressed farther... and I got sick of not getting any sort of events with the one I wanted.

As I said; the game really isn't all that fulfilling, it's systems are pretty pointless and the only reason to gain stats is to get a better job... and the only reason to get a better job is to make money, and the only reason to make money is because the king takes a percentage of it every three months... and if you can't pay his tax you lose the game...

The story does a poor job of driving along the stat grinding (which is fairly random whether your stats will even increase or not); and ultimately the game feels hollow and pointless.

Sadly; I cannot recommend this game.

Spirited Hearts is a dispiriting life simulator with very little story. And what an awful world these Spirited Hearts inhabit!

You spend most of the time directing which job your Spirited Heart will take each week. Poor work performance means you won't get paid - and work performance is determined by randomly choosing dice. A perfect opportunity for skill-based minigames is squandered. Even adequate performance results in half pay! Furthermore, work makes the Hearts physically ill, so much so that they must take a week's vacation every three weeks. Want to save for a nice vacation? Don't bother. Every quarter of the year, the government takes about 40% of their *savings* not *income*, so there is no incentive to accumulate money. Want to buy some special, magical items for your Spirited Heart to make the work grind less tedious? There are no items to acquire.

But what about your race-specific special mission your goddess wants you to perform? Surely that must be amazing! Well, as a human wizard who had maxed out her magic skill, my goddess wanted to me to ... become a gardener. Let the adventure begin! Had I been given the option I would have selected "Laugh in her face and tell her to buzz off."

Perhaps people who like this type of game will overlook its many, many flaws - everyone else should steer clear. I do not recommend it at any price.

Another edit: I've been browsing the discussion for this game and the developer and a few others explained the pricing, which I suggest anyone iffy on it checks the explanation out. It makes the $20-$16 price tag a lot more understandable. Though it's always buyer's choice if they want to accept the explanation.

Not worth this much money, I'd agree with scarletemerald and say that $5 is a better price for this. So there have been a few issues with text overlapping, and I feel like a system of scheduling a week's worth of activities at a time may have made it flow a little better (such as, choose Sun. and Sat. to rest, and put different jobs in for Monday-Friday). One of the biggest things is that you apparently can not act like a decent person as a demon. There is no warning that you have to sit here and either yell at a girl for getting scared by a bee or criticize (which ends up being yelling) her for getting scared by a bee. I would have really liked at least a warning, you noted demons are usually discriminated against but an addition there that they are usually mean would have cleared it up.

Additionally the description for the work minigame was a bit confusing, the way it was written indicated that the totalled number was the number you were trying to match and did not mention the top number.

And my last note, you've got token minority going on pretty hard here. It's great to see a game with straight and lesbian options but there's one nonwhite character out of 12. I don't expect a perfect split but it really would have given it a deeper level of diversity if there were maybe a few more.

Gotta say though the design for the demon girl is cute as hell.

Addition: I just got the Ria, Thofte, and Janimee collectable card things and I have not met these characters. The only ones I have met are Ramas, Yuza, Tmye, and Reid.
