Im in lesbians with Juliet and Flora.
And btw playing as a woman on games like this will make you feel sexualy weird, especially if you´re a man playing a girl that dates dudes.
The beggining of the game made me love a man and i felt.............*drinks*.
I mean i love the game for allowing lesbians things but seriously, that beggining made me go drink a bottle of vodka while Heileen was describing her sexual perveties towards the captain dude.
And with all duo respect, writing this is making me sick.
I dont know whats worse, the fact that i enjoy this game givin it a BIG thumbs up, or the fact that im drunk writing this review under my bed.
I guess i just found out somenthing new about myself, that im a sick f***.
I dont drink or smoke, but this game made found the pleasures of vodka.
It helps you forget even the most disturbing of things.

Rate: 10 out Vodka.

Good night ladies and gentleman.
Im of to bed, and since its dangerous to go alone, i take my vodka.

My opinion:
When i buy this game, I was convinced that the game will be good. But as I downloaded, I don't understand it's the game or comic book. So who wants to buy this game, not buy.

The culmination of the Heileen series, Heileen 3: New Horizons has the heroine of the series, Heileen, rescued from a shipwreck by a band of oddly sympathetic pirates. This game follows her journey as she tries to locate her other friends and relatives, while having the freedom to have a say in her future, whether it is pursue a romance from one of 8 possible people, or whether she finds contentment in a future career.

For how the game runs, it is reminiscent of visual novels (which the first two of this series actually was) with some dating sim mechanics thrown in. I appreciated actually having more of a say in my character.

I liked the game, but there are some caveats. First thing many people comment on is the price. This is on the higher end of the spectrum, but the Steam version contains both the GirlxBoy romances, and the GirlxGirl romances (which can be bought singly on the developer's website.) However, the developer does run several sales through the year if price is a concern.

Before purchasing, I highly recommend trying the demo (from the Dev's website as well). This style of game is certainly not for everyone, but the demo definitely gives a good idea what to expect.

Additionally, I would be remiss not to mention the job skills. It gets really grindy to raise those levels; additionally to unlock the final job endings, there is a Sin/Virtue system in game which must be met as well.

A so-idiotic-it-becomes-offensive game you shouldn't approach with a very-very long stick. Never. It's so idiotic, I just HAD to keep going on, to see where the nightmare would end. If it ever ended. It did. Abruptly. But more about this, in a moment. First, a commercial.

Did you ever wonder how life on the high seas would be, with your semi-dead parrot on your shoulder, with your fellow pirates waiting for the first chance to disembowel you, while ghost ships and giant squids roamed the la... er... the waters? Well, keep wondering. This ain't that kind of fantasy.

Heileen is a total idiot as a character, the very stereotype of the dumb american teenager you can find in typical american "reality TV" or 3rd grade dramas that never made it past their first season. She's "the kind of girl" that thinks that nice clothing is one of the most important factors in our relationships, as seen in a tear-inducing (ha-ha, no, not really) "scene" of the game where she pleads to the ah-what-a-coincidentally-quite-handsome-master-pirate captain of the ship that saved her to give some clothes to her two friends. 'Cause the other pirates treat them differently, badly, since they don't have nice clothes. Like the ones they gave her. To go with her blue eyes and long blond hair.

(...smash head on desk... ...smash head on desk... ...smash head on desk...)

And since its own protagonist is a dumb whiny teenager with one-digit IQ, would you expect the game to be smartly designed so as to show off its awesome characters, scenario and / or action? Har-har-har. Ah, young grasshopper, how much there is to learn...

The game pretends to be a romance simulator, and it may be, I dunno for I haven't ever played one. If they're like this, thank the almighty Baal for not having fell on one up to now. What this culminates to is this:

View a still image of Heileen superimposed over an average background, joined by one or two still images of the other characters of her story. Each and every one dumber than the other.

Keep pressing enter while reading the mind-numbing hundreds of lines of moronic text, pausing to select from different "options" that will take the story to "a different path" (where, I guess, stuff gets even more idiotic). "Options" like:

A. Give your hungry friend part of your meal.
B. Eat it for yourself ignoring she's dying of starvation, since by now you know that in the very next frame she'll be again all smiles and happiness, for this is what happens in the world of pirates.

Then more text, then moire "choices", then "upgrades", in RPG style, that didn't seem to affect the "action" in any meaningful way. With "action" I mean what I've explained up to now, and not some kind - any kind - of other action. Or animation.

The "upgrades" offered by the game are quite interesting and diverse, offering a roster of choices unlike any found in any other game. I mean, where else could you increase your "skills" in "Read Books", "Accountant" and "Kitchen Girl" at the same time?

I have to confess that, during my playthrough, I decided that since the game and its characters treat each and everyone as some kind of bad stereotype, I'd "stereotype" Heileen as well in the worst possible way for her: I "upgraded" only and constantly her "skills" in "Kitchen Girl" and "Cooking".

She deserved it.

I was really excited about playing this game, even though I knew little about it.
And then I played this game. :(

The main character is annoying and idiotic, and for some reason keeps thinking even the guy I have a 0 points "relationship" with is hot. Like, if I'm cultivating x and y relationships and not at all, z, why would you think z is hot? Ugh.

The options are ridiculous (not that it wasn't to be expected from a group of pirates that not only save these random people and not lock them up, but are actually *nice* to them, give them things, *help them*, and deliberately avoid going after ships as is their livelyhood because gasp, miss MC might be offended/surprised/think badly of them). Seriously.

To the person that reviewed it and said 3 of 4 of the guys on it are jerks: I totally agree. And the 4th one seems to be completely undecided on whether he wants to be a jerk or normal.

The girl characters are moderately annoying. Particularly the 'dancer'.

The professions are ridiculous. How come lust + dancing = dancer? Why do I have to be lusty to be a dancer?

The attributes modify nothing in my relationship attempts and only give boosts if I actually try to do something with the person.... but only gives boost to the attribute if I choose the right person, and unless there's an event, I get no boost to the relationship. You'd think spending time together would +1 the relationship.
Not to mention you don't have that much time to do things with others since you keep needing to level up basic skills too much.

Overall, the experience has been less than pleasant. Why do I keep playing? I dunno. Maybe because I'm close to the end and want to see what I get- but there's certainly no replay value. Whatever ending I have, I won't care about the rest.

It's an OK game, but the RPG/stats features of it seem to have little to no effect on the game. Not very appealing.

So ive played this game for about 4 hours now, and my charater may have just been Sleept with against my will. Really thats the best writing you could come up with....

And what's with the rather random decrese to energy, it seems to take anywhere between 2-5% seems normal and some times it goes as high as 34%, the drain seems especially high when you make breakthroughs.

Also something ive been thinking about is, why at all give us 600 days of repeating the same clicks, why is the Sin's / Virtues systems in this game, dosent really make sence for it to be there.
Why have "train 2 skill to about 10 and then a advanced skill to 10 to get a profession in case you dont get lucky" included in the game when i dosent really affect any of the text, other the the flavor text for each proffesion. Why not take all of that out and make the skill increases based of the choises you make in the game. Like when you either rush out to save your "Best Friend" or dont, if you do, it will say that was pride or envy or somthing like that, when it would make alot more sence, to make the charater gain 1 fencing or disiplin or somthing like that skill for having been in live combat. and then have that some how affect the rest of the game, but yeah thats alot of work, work that was not put into this game.

And btw, 3 of the 4 male romance options are jerks.

If you can find it below 10 Euro, then only buy if you really love Visual Novels and can see apart from the many flaws this game triology has.

Well I got this as part of a bundle deal and I have never heard of it, the series or even the genre before.

you control one of a group of friends on a pirate ship that has to be some of the most shallow, vapid and jealous people on the planet yet instantly forgive and forget any negative conversations and actions the moment it happens, so much so that i assume there is either something in the water supply or the group is suffering some sort of group mental illness or head trauma.

Gameplay involves clicking various skill boxes over and over for hours at a time and choosing one of two dialogue choices once in a while.

Heileen 3: New Horizons should have been a gamebook. The minor gameplay between lengthy batches of text is extremely tedious, mostly consisting of pressing the same few buttons ad nauseum to level up traits that do not affect the story.

I don't really have a whole lot to say about this game, really. It's a visual novel/dating sim. I don't have a lot of experience with the genre, but this just felt meh all over.

You're Heileen, the potentially most vapid and shallow woman you'll ever meet (then again her Lust and Pride values were high), as she tries to be useful aboard Captain Morgan's vessel while at the same time getting a date with just about any character that looks half-decent, because eye-candy. You don't get to pick your character, you're always Heileen, but she's bi, so there's your choice there.

There are many characters, both potential romantic interests or not, and each romance equals to a different ending. You're not obligated to smooching anyone up though, as this game also provides you with profession endings, given a high enough value in either a Virtue or a Sin, and the high enough skill level in the needed jobs to end the game that way (example would be you finishing as a captain, so you'd need high leadership and maxed out Pride).

Virtues and Sins are gained and lost depending on your responses in the many conversations this game has, which is 40% of the game, the other 60% are just you grinding your skills for the profession endings, which is pointless if you want a romance ending anyway. I am told the Virtue and Sins levels do affect her personality, so you can make her more of a wench in her general dialogue or not (which is pretty cringeworthy at times, but I knew what I was getting into). Thankfully the characters are different to one another, they will like you more depending on who and what you actually do so the same process doesn't work for everyone.

This being a trilogy, I suppose I can't fault this game for bringing in tons of references from the previous two games I believe, since the first part of the game is just you looking for your friends. This happens naturally though, you don't get to choose where you want to go so while there are many different endings, the game's as linear as it gets.

You're wondering why I'm putting in a recommendation for this game. Well, it's short. And I didn't hate it enough, I mean there's nothing inherently wrong with it. There's not a whole lot to it in the end, but it is what it is. And if you're into this type of game, you'll probably enjoy it more than I did. Was very cheap in a recent bundle so, yeah, give it a try.

I can finally say it. It's the worst detective plot ever. I thought I was so close to solving the biggest mystery - the glasses case. Abnormal glasses that end up lying in every single bed on the ship. Whose glasses are those? Where did they come from? Shinpachi-kun? Maybe the Flying Dutchman secretly loves to read? I mean, they're always in the sex scene. Uh...I mean CRIME SCENE. Yeah, crime!

this visual novel game like a date sims. you will play as a girl in this game, join an adventure with a bunch of pirates while looking for your lost friends. you'll find your lost friend one by one, any interaction with other character will summon a tarrot card that affect the ending of the game. and the most interesting part is you can choose a job for many jobs that require some point on your skill.

The game outright telling me I can go rug munching just made me think that the cost of getting these cards might be a tad too high if it climbs in 'time played' too high relative to real games that deserve to be played.

Also i just played the intro portion a bit and the game is just... ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Heck if these characters where ciphers they would shine in charisma and character relative to the non entities that is the protagonist and every other anime stereotype in this 'visual novel'.

I hadn't played a vn before and probably never will again. It was boring and pointless, I'd rather read a good book. I would not recommend unless you are fan of the genre.
