The SMILE GAME BUILDER Tutorials Extra X03: Marie’s Flowers focuses on fetching Marie’s roses so she will join you. There’s a neat feature – MMORPG style – where the flowers have a "particle effect" that’ll disappear when you collect a rose.
Tutorials Extra Part #X04
The next part of the Tutorials Extra series will focus on Ignaz, who (in the original tutorial) requested money before he would join. He wanted a fixed amount, but this time he’ll request a random amount.
The SMILE GAME BUILDER Tutorials Extra #X02: Recruiting Marie video is up on YouTube.
Marie requires flowers before she will join the party. This tutorial sets her conditions up and, when you have her flowers, her name gets crossed off the recruitment note (from Part 1) after she joined.

The next part of the Tutorials Extra series focuses on the flowers "fetch quest" for Marie, with an additional particle effect indicating where the flowers are (in the same style as many MMORPGs).

Here is the first demo of Relationship Sim‘s "Select A Girl" custom menu, where you can see the girls’ relationship stats. It’s still a work-in-progress, but as game development continues, so too will this menu.

What Is "Relationship Sim"?
For those who don’t know already, Relationship Sim is a game I’m developing for SMILE GAME BUILDER.
It was originally inspired by Tutorial #16, which demonstrated how to create a basic relationship system. I decided to expand on that idea and build a full relationship system, where choices matter and affects relationships with other people.
However, game development on it halted in favour of other games and projects. Eventually, it came full circle and I decided to continue with this game first – and finish it – before moving onto other games and, possibly, other engines.
The Tutorials Extra X01: Recruitment Note for SMILE GAME BUILDER has been published on YouTube.
In this video, the player can view a note listing the party members’ requirements before joining. Their names are then crossed off the list when they’ve joined the party.
What Is the Tutorials Extra Series?
The Tutorials Extra is a series of videos comprising short bite-sized videos aiming to update my older tutorials, each following on from its predecessor. Each video also contains additional methods and enhancements, building on the original tutorials on which they’re based.
