New Gameplay features

Several features were added to gameplay to enhance the experience, summarized below. See Endless Summer, Book 2 Choices for more detailed explanations.

Character (re)customization

At the start of the book, you may now choose from a wider range of skintones and hairstyles for Your Character, rather than selecting one of only four fixed presets. If you import your character from Book 1, you will still have the option to customize their appearance and change gender if you so choose.

Closet

The closet feature was added to the series for the first time. This feature, which allows you to customize your clothes and appearance in game outside of critical plot choices. It was introduced in LoveHacks, Book 1, and was subsequently added into new books of all Choices stories.

Tough Choices

You will occasionally have to make tough choices, which rely on your relationship to other characters for success. If you succeed at a tough choice, you can unlock new choices, costumes, and more. You will also earn a larger than normal friendship or romance boost with the character in question, If you fail however, you will lose special opportunities and will lose a larger than normal amount of friendship or romance.

You can always walk away from a Tough Choice rather than risk it.

Romance meter

The romance meter tracks how invested your love interests are in your relationship. When Your Character initiates a romance, their friendship icon is replaced with the romance meter. You can initiate a romance with Sean, Jake, Quinn, or Estela, as long as you are at least friends with them. As with friendship, romance can be increased by saying and doing things that your love interest approves of. Special romance points (dates) are available throughout the Book, which can greatly increase your romance level with the chosen love interest without interference from other characters. As you increase your romance level, the hearts of the romance meter will be filled in, ranging from "Casual" (half a heart) to "Soulmate" (three hearts). Due to what Pixelberry cheekily refers to as "island rules", you may date up to all four love interests at once, if you so choose. Bear in mind that since dates are exclusive to one love interest at a time, you probably won't be able to max out a romance level with everyone.

Idols

Catalyst idols are a combination of clues and the premium choices found in all stories. There are twelve catalyst idols throughout the Book to collect. Each one offers a bonus scene where you learn more about your friends' backstories and motivations. As with clues, collecting all of them will unlock a bonus scene at the end of the book, on top of the ones you get through collecting them at all. You will receive the first Catalyst Idol for free so you can learn how they work, but all subsequent idols cost 12 diamonds. Also as with clues, you will be told at the end of the chapter if you missed a Catalyst Idol or if there wasn't one in the chapter.

Trivia

  • The book was confirmed on a promotional poster on the Google Play App Store.
  • The book released on June 30th, 2017 and new chapters are out on Fridays instead of Wednesdays. [1]
  • The 4 love interests are Sean, Jake, Quinn and Estela. Out of the 4, Estela is the only one not featured on the cover.
  • The fox on the cover of Book 2 is a different color than the cover of Book 1. The Book 1 cover has the fox as purple with blue eyes, while the Book 2 cover has the fox as blue with purple eyes, matching how the fox really looks in the story.
  • It is explicitly confirmed throughout this book that Endless Summer is set in the same universe as many other Choices stories, albeit with a different art style and perhaps in a different continuity:
    • Hartfeld University is seen in flashbacks, set in many of the same locations seen in The Freshman.
    • Your Character, Jake, Sean and Quinn are established to be fans of The Crown and The Flame, a popular TV series in most of the other Choices stories.
    • Jake is the brother of Rebecca McKenzie, an LAPD officer from Most Wanted.
    • Grace is the daughter of Blaire Hall from Rules of Engagement.

Unanswered Questions

  • How did Lundgren and the Arachnid team get there? Did they go through the portal MC and the group used or did they go another way?
  • Did Lila know Rourke's endgame?
  • Who was that guy with the binoculars in the bonus scene?
  • Those doors in Chapter 1 depicted the world being thrown into Hell after a volcano (Pompeii) erupts, the world is then destroyed later in Chapter 14; the Vaanti believe in "Raan'losti", something that will bring about the end of their kind and the world. Is it possible that Mount Atropo erupting, is really what the Vaanti believe to be Raan'losti? But no one in La Huerta was affected because they're in a different dimension?
