About the Game

Nicole is thrilled that she managed to get into her first choice school and is looking forward to experiencing college life there. However, as soon as she moves into the university dorms, she finds out that there’s been a series of mysterious disappearances going on around the campus! So far, three girls have already gone missing and Nicole could be next if she’s not too careful – not quite the ideal college experience Nicole had in mind.

Nicole is a dating sim that revolves around your day-to-day life as a college student. You can take up part-time jobs to earn money, explore various locations, do recreational and extra-curricular activities, and meet intriguing characters like Darren, Kurt, Jeff and Ted. You might even get to date the culprit!

Choose which actions to perform each day with a simple and intuitive interface. Improve Nicole's skills and keep her morale and energy well balanced, otherwise she won't be able to perform well in her daily activities.

The game features four male romance options and an additional four female romance options which will be released in a separate game version within a few months. You may focus solely on dating, or gather enough clues and solve the mystery to unlock an extra ending for each of the datable characters!

You can use items that can be bought from the in-game online shop or visit various locations within the game to perform certain actions, which can improve your stats and your relationship with the characters. At the end of the day, you’ll get a summary of your progress.

What are you waiting for?

I would say this is probably my second favorite dating sim from Winter Wolves at the moment (the top one being Roommates).

The game can get a bit grindy as well. You have to raise certain stats to garner the interest of one of the love interests, balancing it with keeping your rest up, and increasing the clue stat to uncover the mystery. It is a shame they didn't do more with the stats to affect the game.

First, I liked Nicole; she isn't a perfect character, and I appreciate this is a girl who will try to get things done on her own (one problem I had with Always Remember Me is the character seemed to cry more than anything else).

Be warned this game is definitely darker in tone than other Winter Wolves dating sims, especially if you decide to dig further into the mystery surrounding the missing girl. Without trying to give away any spoilers, while it is darker, don't expect any R rated violence and blood.

The male love interests are a bit of a mixed bag, some definitely hitting stereotypes like jock and nerd, though the writing for them is still well done.

As seems to be par for the course for Winter Wolves Games, some people may find the price a bit high. Be aware Winter Wolves does hold several sales throughout the year, and this includes to their Steam games.

One disappointment I have is that the GirlxGirl version still isn't ready yet, though it is definitely in the works.

Finally, if you are new to Winter Wolves games, I highly recommend trying the demo available on the developer's website. This will get you used to the game, and give a good idea whether this is the game for you.

This game is awesome.

There is a really interesting story, a lot of different situations, dialogues. So many amazing funny phrases! Wonderful! (Scriptwriter, I love you!) You will see an incredible sense of humor here! It's so cute, funny and realistic! You will want to laugh out loud!

'Nicole' is similar to 'Always Remember Me', but this game has a much more content, it is better thought out. And yet here is an awesome graphics. Zaphylla's artwork is my favorite one. You will hear a plenty of pleasant music. It's ideal for all situations! The game has a quite unexpected endings, which is very nice.

Special thanks to the developers for a great bonus content!
I strongly recommend buying 'Nicole' to all visual novels lovers.

This game is literal trash.
Don't spend $20 on a slow paced, badly written game.
The "mystery" is easily figured out within 20 minutes of gameplay but for some reason
I spent 6 hours STRAIGHT playing this crap. I has playability sure .. But I hated every second of it.

Main character is an unlovable ♥♥♥♥♥ and the characters you're supposed to romance are all
autistic ♥♥♥♥♥♥cs.

In particular Jeff.
This ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

The game tells you "Don't worry about clues just get you other stats up"
I had 966 clues on december 20th.
I got the ♥♥♥♥tiest ending.

I could have spent that $20 on a pack of cigs and it would be more enjoyable than this game was.
Slowly killing myself with tobacco is more enjoyable than this game.
