Games focusing on customization and designing of different things, such as own wardrobe or interiors. Heavy emphasis on collecting aspects.

Example games: Design Home, Love Nikki, The Sims


Games with really light gameplay mechanics and main focus in interactive storytelling. Usually players can make decisions (e.g. dialogue choices) which affect the narrative’s progression.


Example games: Episode, Choices, Chapters


Games where music and rhythm plays a big role in both theme AND core mechanics. These games often put the player in charge of a band/musician with ample options for customization styles and looks.
