It was an all ages program from the beginning, and its gaming style influence many titles to come.

A whole genre of “Dating Sims” had risen and declined in the decade before my game.

My ignorance can be forgiven since all of this happened in Japan, and nowhere else.

All dating sims, including mine, occasionally pause the plot for some mini game or puzzle you have to solve to go on.

Mostly still images mixed with occasional animation, is also a shared trait.

It is not always a school setting, but there is always some arbitrary time limit involved.

The games usually also involve many different possible endings making the games re-playable.The games start out letting you pick what kind of character you are RPG style where you distribute points between, looks, charm and intelligence.As you move through the school, you meet many girls, and the object is to find girls that your style allows you to “score” with which you must do by the end of a set time period, usually a semester or school year.Even though the settings often differed, the formula did not.After about a decade, the formula got tired, and the popularity declined except for small cult followings.The biggest alike quality is of course the multiple possible ending scenarios.
