Darth Wiki / UEFA Euro 2012 The Unofficial Dating Sim

Go To

UEFA Euro 2012: The Unofficial Dating Sim (another idea by Andy LA) is Exactly What It Says on the Tin: a Dating Sim that has the 2012 European Championship as backdrop. You play as a football enthusiast (whose name and nationality are decided by you), who traveled to Eastern Europe to watch the Euro live and, hopefully, score outside the pitch as well. The nationality you choose determines which country you'll be visiting: Poland or Ukraine (though you can choose if you don't pick any of the participating countries). And, depending on the country you go to, you'll meet different girls (which may or may not also be there to watch their countries play):

  • In Poland: Alexandra (Greek), Giovanna (Italian), Jana (Czech), Ljiljana (Croatian), Marjan (Polish), Sarah (Irish), Soledad (Spanish) and Svetlana (Russian)
  • In Ukraine: Anamaria (Portuguese), Darla (Swedish), Elizabeth (English), Ingrid (German), Kateryna (Ukrainian), Martina (Dutch), Melissa (Danish) and Patricia (French)

Most of the time, it's a Dating Sim like any other: say the right things, win the girls over. But the football backdrop exerts influence as well: depending on your relationship with any of the girls, if your teams play against each other, she may rib on you in a friendly way or hostilize you. The matches' results also interfere on the relationship, and she may even leave if her team is eliminated from the tournament.

And one last warning: contains ecchi.

Has a sequel planned for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Tropes include:

  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: For the girls, actually. Some of them may wear additional gear when you take it to the next level (Jana, for example, wears Petr Cech's helmet along with her red/blue lingerie).
  • Bait-and-Switch: When you talk to Giovanna about her team, at one point she'll start to criticize Manchester City forward Mario Balotelli (who is a starter in the Italian team and has Ghanaian descent). The way she puts it, you at first might think she is racist (Truth in Television, as racism is something of an issue in Italian football), but then she'll say it's because she thinks Balotelli is inconsistent and undisciplined (and if you even hint at her being racist, she'll get upset with you for thinking that).
  • Fiery Redhead: Again, Sarah. She's actually an easygoing girl, but she tends to get... emotional, especially when she's drunk.
  • Advertisement:
  • Freestate Amsterdam: Martina is a stereotypical sharp-tongued, smoking clubber (Word of God says it's marijuana she smokes, but that's not explicitly shown or mentioned due to anti-drug laws) who's into sadomasochism.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Martina.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Crops up from time to time (mainly because only Sarah and Elizabeth have a native language in common).
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Sarah. Ingrid and Jana drink too, but they actually warn you to tell them if they're going overboard.
  • Meaningful Name: Melissa, the Danish girl from the cast, is so-named as a reference to the eponymous album/song by Mercyful Fate... which is a Danish metal band.
  • Spicy Latina: By proxy, Soledad.
  • Symbol Swearing: When Alexandra, Kateryna or Svetlana get angry, they not only curse in their native language, but their curses appear in their language's alphabets as well. It falls under this trope to us, Latin alphabet users.
    Svetlana: (yelling at a player on the field) GET THE ЧЕРТ[[labelnote:*]](hell)[[labelnote]] OUT OF THERE, YOU УБЛЮДОК[[labelnote:*]](bastard)[[labelnote]]!!!
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Mediterranean girls tend to be the former (most notably Alexandra) while Melissa is the Girly Girl of the bunch (thankfully, she's 18).
  • Vodka Drunkenski: Averted! Svetlana cannot stand vodka.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: All the girls helpfully wear the jerseys of their countries' teams. Of course, they're there for the Euro (or so it may seem in a few cases).
