In Chulip, it is the player's job to breathe new life into a town that has grown tiresome of its old and boring routines. Through a variety of puzzles, odd jobs and adventures, players help the sad, lonely, lost and depressed find their way to a brighter side. In doing so, the player will build a reputation as a hero, which in doing so will catch the eye of that 'certain someone'.
Chulip plays most similar to Roleplaying games. The game goes by a 24 hour day schedule similar to whats seen in the Harvest Moon games. And each non playable character also has their day schedules that consist of different times ie. Night time or daytime. Most characters walk the street harmless while some in particular the police man attacks you on his nightly patrols. Some characters come out underground living apartments. Clues are given in the hole whether you can kiss them or not. As the story progresses you can go around the game world via train.
