Every girl has this dream to become a fashion designer when she is grown up. Most of the time that future changes and that little girl grows up and becomes a lawyer or doctor or accountant.
Developers – Syn Sophia, though, has made a wonderful girly game to satisfy that inner fashion designer all girls have hidden away.
The game is designed for the Nintendo 3DS and works brilliantly with this hand held console. The graphics are beautiful and this will go a long way with the style of the game because you have to be able to see the vibrancy of the colours.
Enough about technicalities. The story runs like this:
You are the niece of a well know boutique owner in the “big city” – I called mine ANGELS BAY – your uncle Tim has decided that since you have come of age and can run a store by yourself, you will now be the sole owner of the family heirloom – GLITTERZ boutique – while he goes off to find himself and pursue his dreams.
He takes it upon himself to arrange a helping hand for you, so that you do not have to manage the business entirely sole. Your store manager does all the odd jobs in the store, giving you free range to explore and go to the exhibition hall to acquire new fashion items. You are also the “main man” that the customers deal with when they arrive at the boutique.
When you meet someone new, a profile is set up for them in your customer listing, along with an image. You may be required to arrange a single item of clothing or maybe even an entire outfit. Your customer will tell you exactly what it is they are looking in terms of style, design or even colour. They will also provide you with a budget, so be careful when you are putting their outfits together, because going over budget will cause you to lose the sale and perhaps even the customer.
To have some designing fun without losing customers or insulting anyone, you can dress yourself up with a wide selection of items. Try out some outfits, create some of your own, do your make-up and nails and if you are happy with your creation save it in your scrapbook to wear again on a later date.
I know this game is not really for the adult community, but regardless of your age it is still fun to play.
So, if you are an undercover fashionista in the digital world grab a copy of Style Boutique 3 – Styling stars and go crazy with style design.
