Description

A young man and his father are the newest residents of Long Life Town, a strange little town with even stranger characters. It is here that he meets the girl of his dreams - literally. But she wants nothing to do with him. The young man's mission is to improve his reputation among the many inhabitants of the town until they allow him to kiss them, and impress the girl of his dreams with his acts of kindness.

Chulip is primarily a puzzle-solving adventure with a few role-playing elements. The player can freely explore the town, trying to figure out what to do next and how to do it. Kissing people is not as easy as it may seem; actions required to allow a person to be kissed range from waiting for the right moment to more difficult and branching puzzles like helping someone find a job. The more people the hero ends up kissing, the higher his heart meter goes, which allows the player to progress through the story and attempt more challenging tasks.

Approaching angry townspeople, doing something they don't like, or injuring himself through various means will take away the protagonist's hearts. When all his hearts are gone, the player must restart or restore a saved game. Hearts can also be regained by sleeping, eating, and certain other tasks. Money is earned by kissing Underground residents (who only show up at certain times of the day), or by selling items found in the garbage. It can be used to buy various items that may help the player get further into the game, or train tickets to travel to new areas.

Created by a team that has split off from Love-de-Lic, the game shares many stylistic and gameplay-related traits with Moon: Remix RPG Adventure (the overall goal of making people happy, exotic characters, "gibberish" language with subtitles, day and night cycle, character schedules, etc.).
