The Flower Shop: Winter in Fairbrook, is the second game after Summer in Fairbrook, but both are stand alone games. Whereas I played and was mildly excited about Summer in Fairbrook, I enjoyed Winter in Fairbrook far more. This may have to do with my preference for female protragonists, but I also found scenes themselves more enjoyable. Each of the optainable males have unique personalities, and while they may fall hard on certain traits (shyness, bookishness) there are still surprises and they're all capable of character development.
Here's the basics of the game, you can decide if they're pros or cons because I find what some people see as positive might be negative to someone else.
- Simple, cute story. Nothing groundbreaking, but still enjoyable.
- Can plant seeds and grow plants. Money is meaningless in that you can't buy anything but more seeds, but the amount you earn will affect what ending you get. (I guess it shows that you stopped being just a lazy college student?)
- Diverse cast with individual personalities and are capable of development.
- Colorful and cute visuals, especially for specific scenes at the end (if you don't get the alone ending).
For $15 is it worth it? I paid that price and didn't regret it. I'm also, admittedly, very easy to please. So if you're on the line about buying it you could always wait for a sale or get a 50% off coupon for it. (People sometimes post them under Trade in Discussions.) At $7.5 I'd say it's certainly worth it.
