New Gameplay Features

Acts

Endless Summer is divided into several narrative acts of around 5 chapters long. It does not cost additional keys to progress through acts (progression happens as normal, using keys to unlock new chapters). At the end of each act, your progress is evaluated and you are treated to all or part of a bonus scene, depending on how many clues you have collected.

Clues

As you proceed through the chapters, you will collect "clues" that offer insight into the mysteries surrounding La Huerta. These clues don't actually lead you to many conclusions, but if you collect them all, you are treated to a bonus scene at the end of the act. If you collect most, but not all, of the clues in an act, you will still be treated to part of the bonus scene.

Some clues are obtained simply by progress, many are obtained through making the right choices, and a few cost diamonds, either directly or indirectly.

The clue system makes this the first Choices story to include bonus scenes unlocked without directly paying a diamond cost.

Related to clues are the dossiers that can be found in Chapters 6, 10, and 11. Collecting them all (conventional premium choices with diamond costs) unlocks an epilogue and a final puzzle.

Friendship indicator

Unlike other Choices stories, where you are simply told your relationships with other characters are improved or damaged, significant characters in Endless Summer have a friendship emoji right next to their name whenever they speak. The color and face on the emoji indicates the nature of that character's relationship to Your Character. The emoji range from an angry blue face for enemies to a laughing reddish face for best friends. Whenever you make a choice other characters approve or disapprove of, a quick indicator will pop up informing you how by many points your relationship has changed.

Characters with friendship indicators are Your Character's classmates (Diego, Sean, Quinn, Grace, Aleister, Craig, Michelle, Raj, Zahra, and Estela) as well as Jake, Lila and IRIS.

The relationships that you can have with a character as of now are:

  • Hate
  • Dislike
  • Neutral
  • Like
  • Friends
  • Close
  • Best Friends

Trivia

  • The Fox is purple instead of blue on the cover.
  • The cover features three of Your Character's four love interests: Jake, Quinn, and Sean.
  • This is the second Choices story in which you can select your gender at character creation (after "Most Wanted, Book 1").
  • This is the first Choices story to feature implicitly bisexual love interests who are interested in Your Character regardless of gender. Previous stories have featured implicitly bisexual protagonists (i.e., The Freshman and The Crown and the Flame) with fixed gender.
  • In Chapter 6, if you choose to go investigate Rourke office with Sean, you will have a chance to enter the password to his computer. If you enter the correct one: ALccADDSccUP, your character will create a temporal paradox, and be thrown through time and space until a guardian of the fourth dimension appears and resets everything for you. The password is only usable in a bonus scene if you collect all the dossiers on you and your friends (in-universe, providing the clues you need to figure out the password). The dossiers can be found in Chapter 6 (after failing to gain access to the computer), Chapter 10, and Chapter 11.
  • This book appears to have a pattern when it comes to chapter names. They appear to be named after direct quotes from that chapter. For example, the title of Chapter 5 - It's What You're Meant For - is said by Estela towards Your Character when the latter tells the former that they want to help the former in her mission.
  • On Thursday December 7, 2017 Pixelberry released the soundtracks for the series.[1]
  • The old note clue is expanded further when the gang ends up at Neptune Cave in Endless Summer, Book 3 trying to find the other half of the island's heart .
  • In Chapter 12, if you choose to use diamonds and speak to (who is later known as Varyyn) he somehow knows Jake and Sean's Hadean zodiac signs, but not the main character's.
  • On February 16, 2018 Pixelberry shared the playlists of the Endless Summer team that covers all three books on Spotify.[2]
    • Inspiration for book 1 came from the song, Slam by Pendulum.
    • Link to the Spotify playlist is found in the Reference section.[3]
  • According to Pixelberry's blog, the title of the series was supposed to be different.[4]
    • There were also different brainstormed plots such as; a professor being eaten, Flora Sullivan being the Big Bad of Book 1, the rest of the Catalysts being your ex-lovers and Aleister being depicted as a serial killer.
  • The events in the book take place over six days.
