Hot Springs Story is a simulation game where you run your own hot spring. Unlike other Kairosoft games, this theme is strongly Japanese. However, it is still completely playable without any knowledge of Japanese culture.

GameplayEdit

You start the game with a small, functional hot spring. As you play, you unlock more potential guests, structures, investment opportunities, learn new combos, and can expand the size of your hot spring! While you only have one hot spring per game, this allows you to build more stuff to allow a wider range of attractions for more guests.

You can buy many items, scenery, and upgrades for your hot spring, more becoming available as your game progresses and as you unlock and increase the popularity of guests.

Every year at month 5, "Golden Week" starts, which greatly increases the number of customers for that month.

GuestsEdit

StructuresEdit

Structures have 3 types, environmental, facilities, and stores. Environmental structures are used to increase the scenery of the surrounding area and use in combos, facilities are the base structures needed to run your hot spring, and stores are your main source of money.

CombosEdit

Combos are created when 2 specific structures are within proximity to each other. For a combo to be created, these structure must be within 2 blocks of each other (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), and likewise effects all facilities in a 2 block range. Combos are similar to, but not the same as, bath effects.
