Princess Maker 2 ...The Biggest Time Suck of My Life

About a year ago I discovered DOSbox. Being a fan of simulations and alternate endings I download PM2 from Abandonia. Immediately I lost about a month worth of free time to the game. It is SO addictive! I achieved several endings before my computer crashed (not due to the game, it was just old and cranky). From then on I would not allow myself to download it again because I was afraid I would succumb to the game again...I forgot about the amazing amount of time this game can suck out of one's life. I downloaded DOSbox again and...downloaded the game. It's been about a day and I have the first of around 74 endings....I want to get them ALL!

First I guess you guys need some background of the game. Well, right now all I can manage is duh.....I..t..'s..fan...tas..tic..! AMAZING! SO instead I'm going to give you guys Abandonia's summary of the game:
Now this game is completely different from anything I have ever played before. It is a nice and very cute game from Japan, with a very detailed manga-inspired feel to the graphics. A strong idea that has neatly been made into a game.
As for the story it is all up to you. You decide everything in this game and there is an estimate of 76 endings depending on your choices throughout the game. You are a great adventurer who aided a falling kingdom against the attacking Demon-lord! Your payment is a yearly salary from the King of 500 gold coins. As if this was not enough the divine God himself grants you a daughter, sent from heaven itself. The child is pure of heart and will do whatever you want her to. On her 10'th birthday she is old enough to start making herself a destiny.
You have different options at your disposal when you are making her monthly schedules. She can do some work and earn some cash the hard way, or you can send her to schools in order for her to make a profession. She could be adventuring the land, or you could simply let her have a vacation. Each of these choices have several sub-options. For instance she can study the arts of Science, Poetry, Theology, Strategy, Fencing, Fighting, Magic, Protocol, Painting and/or Dance. You have so many different possibilities in this game that it will never be the same no matter how many times you play the game.
The game stops when your daughter reaches the age of 18. She is now old enough to make her own decisions, and some of these are... surprising (to say the least!)
I could go on and on about this game, from the graphics that changes in every event (you will see how your daughter changes over the course of her life), to the endless angles in which you can attack the game. You can try to make her an adventurer like you, a real princess, a warrior, a thief, a magician.... and the list just goes on and on. Remember there are numerous different endings.
The game is easy to understand, and it will take you about 2 minutes to get the hang of the game... strangely enough that is also the time you will need to get completely hooked about the game! It is always fun to compare you daughter with someone else’s. The game is the ultimate time-killer! And it also a nice game to see if you would be a good parent ;)

I went for the best ending you can get, the Grand Poobah. In which your daughter becomes queen. I failed. Apparently she became a little too violent to become queen and this is my first result:


Officer of Royal Guard

Refinement = 100
Morals = 30
Fighting Reputation = 420
Magic Reputation = 360
Social Reputation = 360
Housework Reputation = 360

Your daughter is now an Officer of the Royal Guard for his majesty the king.

Not exactly what I wanted, but I'll take it. If you want to try this AWESOME game the only place I know to download it is here:http://www.abandonia.com/games/181/
