New Gameplay Features

To enhance the experience, several new gameplay features were added in Book 2. See Endless Summer, Book 2 Choices for more detailed explanations.

Character Re-customization:

Even if you import your character from Book 1, at the start of the book, you'll have the chance to re-customize your character with a wider range of skintones and hairstyles, rather than selecting one of the four pre-established characters.

Closet:

After its introduction in LoveHacks, Book 1, the "Closet" feature was subsequently added to some of Choices' other series, like Endless Summer, Book 2. This feature allows you to customize your clothes and in-game appearance, when not making critical plot choices.

Tough Choices:

Occasionally, you will have the opportunity to make tough choices. Depending on your relationships with characters, tough choices can dramatically improve or damage your relationships with them. The higher your relationship is with a character, the higher is the chance that the tough choice will run in your favor.

Dating:

Unique to this story is a 3-hearts meter system calculating a love interest's romance with your character, which is initiated once your character chooses to date them. The feature to date a love interest opens itself once you've acquired the "Friends" status with them. Similar to friendship points, romance points can be gained through choices and actions approved by your love interest. Dates with love interests will also greatly increase your romance level with them. "Island rules", as referred by Pixelberry, will allow you to date all four love interests at once, although the limited amount of romance points will restrict you from maxing out your romance levels with each one of them.

Characters with this feature are all four love interests, Estela, Jake, Sean and Quinn. The following are the labels to the different romance scores:

  • Casual (0.5 hearts, Requires Friend-Status)
  • Official (1 heart, Requires 15 points to reach from Casual-Status)
  • Crazy (1.5 hearts, Requires 15 points to reach from Official-Status)
  • Serious (2 hearts, Requires 20 points to reach from Crazy-Status)
  • In Love (2.5 hearts, Requires 20 points to reach from Serious-Status)
  • Soulmates (3 hearts)

In Endless Summer, Book 3, this feature is further expanded as the opportunity to marry your love interest in Act VIII presents itself, if you've acquired at least 2 hearts with your selected love interest.

Idols:

Your character has the chance to collect the twelve "Catalyst Idols" of you and your friends throughout the book that'll offer two distinct bonus scenes each. While one will offer a flashback of the idol's character, the other will offer a scene of another timeline, where that character dies in the future. Collecting all of them will also unlock a bonus scene in the epilogue, as well as a final puzzle.

Trivia

  • The Fox on the cover of Book 2 is of a different color than on the cover of Book 1. The Book 1 cover illustrates the Fox as purple with blue eyes, while the Book 2 cover illustrates it as blue with purple eyes, matching the Fox's actual appearance.
  • Unlike Book 1, this book was released on Fridays instead of Wednesdays.
  • The idea that all of Choices' series take place in one common universe is explicitly confirmed in this book and strengthened through numerous evidence.
    • Hartfeld University, the main location from "The Freshman" and "The Sophomore" series is shown through the idols' flashbacks several times.
    • Your character, Jake, Sean and Quinn are established to be fans of "The Crown & The Flame", a popular television show in Choices' other series.
    • Jake is the brother of Rebecca McKenzie, an LAPD officer from the "Most Wanted" series.
    • Blaire Hall is Grace's mother, and her company, Mansingh Transglobal, is actually referenced many times throughout the series.
    • There is a strong possibility that the "Hero" and the Endless Summer series will intertwine. Characters like Silas Prescott and Everett Rourke have been referenced in the opposite series. Since Silas and Everett are both businessmen, it is implied that they have an ongoing feud. They are also very similar to one another, as both of them are the primary antagonists of their respective series, both have sons who disapprove of their actions (Grayson and Aleisterand both of them are concocting schemes of world domination.
  • Act 6, Chapter 14 pays homage to the TV series Lost, specifically the famous line "We have to go back" which is spoken by Your Character when it becomes apparent that the world has ended.
  • This is the first book that visibly shows a dead body instead of letting the player simply visualize a character's death through dialogue. In this book, it is Ximaedra's dead body that is illustrated after she is mortally electrocuted by Cetus.
  • On February 16, 2018 Pixelberry shared the playlists of the Endless Summer team that covers all three books on Spotify.[1]
    • Inspiration for book 2 came from the song, The Kids Don't Stand a Chance by Vampire Weekend.
    • Link to the Spotify playlist is found in the Reference section.[2]
