Just to save all of you some time, let's just get right to. Arkadium's Gossip Girl: Social Climb for Facebook is downright confusing. Based on the hit TV series on the CW Network surrounding rich 20-somethings living in Manhattan, Gossip Girl inundates you with text and question from the moment you log in. First, it's a series of profile questions to determine your nickname. Then, it's a list of mundane questions based on hoity-toity events you'll attend in the Big Apple.
And this is the majority of Gossip Girl: pressing miscellaneous buttons and answering questions based on your own morality (if you want to call it that). The game is deeper than that, but not by much. Find out why after the break.
While the game certainly looks gorgeous, I'd imagine that's not difficult when there are few actual pieces of artwork in the game aside from the intro upon logging in. After creating your profile you will be invited to your first event and given your first mission. But really, neither of which are important--it's the process of the event itself that matters. Once within an event found on one of the four quadrants of the Manhattan mini map, you will be given access to a series of abilities that will raise a "Scandal Bar" in reference to an event progress bar. If you fill the Scandal Bar before the event is over, you will fail at socializing at this event. The goal is to keep the bar with in the sparkly box for the duration of the event, which is done by waiting for the bar's progress to decrease over time.
