'Chulip' is a PlayStation 2 game from Natsume.
Pucker up! Natsume's social kissing game Chulip is now available for download from the US PlayStation Store. The game launches players into a world where kissing is as common as a handshake, and the perfect way to make new friends.
"We originally released Chulip on February 13th, 2007, [which is] the day before Valentine's Day, as we felt the game was very romantic, and it fits into the Natsume library perfectly with its charming characters," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. "Whether you're reliving those memories or making new kissing bonds, Chulip is a great way to warm up during the upcoming chilly months."
Chulip takes place in the tiny village of Long Life Town where the player takes the role of a teenage boy dreaming of love. As luck would have it, the girl of your dreams lives in Long Life Town, but sadly you're just not cool enough for her. Hard-set to win her heart, you decide that it's high time to fix that. Gain reputation and strengthen your hero's heart by kissing the unusual citizens of Long Life Town while gathering the precious supplies to write a love letter to your intended: ink, paper, and, of course, a pen. But if you think kissing the various citizens of the town will be easy, think again.
Your journey to discover who to kiss and when to lay the smackeroo on them will lead this unlikely hero on a journey to the top of a seedy corporation, acting as a defense lawyer in court, encountering alien life forms, and many other hilarious encounters. Just watch where you plant those lips: Kissing someone at an inopportune time is likely to earn you a serious slap across the face.
Chulip is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
