*All About the LIPS System
The LIPS System, or Live & Interactive Picture System, is a core gameplay feature in Sakura Wars that influences how you interact with characters and even the environment which impacts how events will unfold. Usually presented in a time-sensitive fashion, LIPS appears in four different scenarios:
Standard LIPS – The most common one, you are presented with a series of dialog options to choose from. Or, you can choose none of them, which itself is an answer!
Click LIPS – These are typically seen during special events involving face-to-face conversations with context sensitive actions. For example, clicking on someone’s mouth starts or continues a chat.
Analog LIPS – Encountered in moments where you’re asked to provide a response, and it’s up to you to decide how much emotion you’ll put into that response based on how much you fill up a gauge on screen.
Environment LIPS – Similar to classic point-and-click adventure games, you are presented with a puzzle that you must solve by searching your surroundings for clues.
