センチメンタルグラフティ - Japanese spelling
Sentimental Graffiti is what is usually referred to as dating simulation. Instead of following a story, like in adventure games, the player makes choices that influence his relationships with the game's female characters, thus shaping his own story.
There are twelve cities to travel to, and twelve girls to have a relationship with. Compared to some other dating simulations (such as Tokimeki Memorial games), the gameplay system in Sentimental Graffiti is rather simple, focusing on freedom of movement and choice rather than statistics.
The player can choose between various means of transportation (different kinds of train, plane, boat, etc.), and different locations within each city. The backgrounds are digitized photos of real locations in Japan, while the characters are hand-drawn anime style pictures.
