A dress up title of new generation – this is how we can briefly describe Gacha Life. Why so? Simply because it goes far beyond traditional dress ups that are usually created for small girls. Basically, they are all the same – you have a doll that really lacks personality and life, you choose some dresses for her, try them on, then choose some other dresses and this can last an infinity. However, Gacha developers found a new approach to the same appealing format and added a great deal of other genres elements in a game. Of course, you will start with character creation that includes a deal of dressing up. You are going to create one from scratch, choosing everything from hair and eyes to clothes and height. The options here provide you with an opportunity to create a hero that looks like someone who has a personality – whether it is a shy and cute one, or a naughty little monster. All customization features are available from the very start, so you don’t need to gain any achievements to improve the way your creation looks. In addition to dressing, there are also numerous communicational opportunities – you can talk and build friendship (or become enemies, if you wish – it’s up to you) with other characters. Also, there is a number of small games you will take part in once you character is done. The games will bring you scores and help you move up on the table, where all the other participants will be also present.
The character design here is pretty vast and includes numerous options. You have eight basic slots and twelve additional ones. This allows you to modify every part of character’s body. You can create more than one character for your playing. When you are done with them, you are welcome to proceed with situations your characters are going to find themselves in. You are welcome to create any kind of them – starting with a simple group photo or arranging a conflict. You can make 9 different situations and edit them to your own liking. Next, you can develop the situations into a whole story, putting them in one single plot. Here you have a complete freedom – choose where each of the heroes will stand, add dialogues, add emotions, and poses and background. Still, while all of the customization, creation and storytelling options are available when you just start playing, there is one thing you cannot get an access to until you develop your hero to a certain level (tenth level). This is an online chat for you and other members. Once you are done with the creations and already have something to show, you can contact other players and boast of your creation. Of course, you can also see what they have done. It’s a great idea to communicate with like-minded people, who are also fond of Gacha and impress them with your ideas as well as get inspired by something done by them. When entering this more, you will find yourself on a shared area, where other characters are wondering around. To start a dialogue with one of them, you need to click on him or her and start talking in chat. Building relationships here might be not that easy sometimes! There is a number of communicational options of different levels, so you will have to develop your relationships passing some difficulties.
