Video Game: High School Story
High School Story
is an Android and iPhone game which allows the player to build a high school to attend. It's developed by Pixelberry, the creators of Surviving High School
(with which it also shares a universe and several characters.) The player creates a student and then helps direct the development of the school by building classrooms, purchasing books, and admitting more students. Quests can be completed to upgrade the school, help out a fellow classmate, or just advance the plot.
At its heart, High School Story
is a Breeding Simulation Game
that uses the same mechanics as games like Dragon City
or even some aspects of Monster Rancher
, though the trappings are different: instead of breeding two creatures to combine their types, two students will throw a party and will meet a new student dependent upon which clique they belong to. Instead of spending a few hours warming the egg in a hatchery, the new student must spend a few hours filling out forms in the admission office.
The game now has a spinoff called Hollywood U
where your character there is a student at an acting school.
