War of Roses is a free romantic game with text-based elements like Nightbloom and Frog Factions: Game of the Decade Edition where you’ll need to make decisions to progress the story. Your character is Rose, who has inherited a flower shop that’s not doing so well. While you’re trying your best to revive it, you’re distracted by a love interest.
The story and gameplay revolve around the protagonist and three primary leads, which is where the choices come in. You’ll spend more time reading than actually playing the game. However, you can have some fun dressing your character in the latest fashion.
Love is in the air
If you love soapy dramas with several love interests, then War of Roses will suit you. As you read through the plot, you’ll meet three primary characters all looking to win your heart. You can choose which one you want to fall in love with, or feel free to play the field with each of them to see their reactions.
The gameplay mechanics revolve around making choices at integral parts of the story. Each option has a different consequence, but it’ll still lead you through the natural progression. You can play it again with other choices to see what would happen. It’s almost like a trial-and-error system that’s not recommended in real life.
Four different endings
Of course, there are four different endings to War of Roses, which is why the choices are so vital. You’ll either end up with one of the three love interests or decide to go it alone. While that may seem like a spoiler, it’s how you go about reaching these endings that’s more satisfying.
Save the shop
You might get caught up in the romantic drama, but don’t forget to save the store. You can play dress-up with your character, but some choices may influence how well the business performs. You’ll need to choose between love and success.
Choose your own love adventure
War of Roses caters to gamers who enjoy reading text for several hours while making game-changing choices. There are plenty of characters to meet, but you’ll only have time to select between three of them. It’s a romantic drama that’s sure to set your heart alight.
