Fashion Cents Deluxe Screenshot An original fashion puzzle game for girls!

Our original fashion puzzle game for girls has been given the Deluxe treatment!

Like the original game, you are given a wide assortment of hats, tops, bottoms, and shoes in a variety of styles and colors, which you must combine into outfits that are color-coordinated. Add accessories like glasses and purses to score bonus points. Create enough outfits to advance to the next level!

    Fashion Cents Deluxe features:
  • Simple, yet highly addictive gameplay!
  • Lots of cute clothes for you to mix and match!
  • A delicious smooth jazz soundtrack!
  • Improved graphics and sound!
  • Free add-on packs for registered owners!

The installer uses Bitrock, a graphical installer. After you download, you need to set the executable bit to run the installer. Once installed, you can start the game from the desktop or system menu shortcuts (if on an LSB-compliant system), or by typing "fashion" from the command line.

CLEARLY the problem with this game is that it teaches young girls to misuse homonyms... Fashion Sense! not Cents! Grammar Nazis come to your door soon!

But on a serious note, would people be up in arms about a paper-doll game for girls that taught basic math skills?

The cartoon girls are pretty. I hope they are opressed.

Their vacant but somewhat happy expression suits them. I see this expression on pretty girls IRL. It's the fat ones that bitch about everything. The thin ones are quiet, like they should be. :)

  Perpetuating stereotypical gender roles posted by Anonymous @ 81.170.134.170 on Nov 11 2007 12:17 AM  
This awful thing teaches kids that girls should be interested in looking pretty. There's plenty of that sentiment already (look at how different clothes and toys for girls and boys look or look at music videos). At the very least let the gamer choose a male character to dress up in glittering pink skirts. Get with the times. hbtq ftw.

Indeed... Hmm, this frustrates me enough to actually think about looking in to learning to program so that I could make a game that might appeal to girls but is focused on science. Sure girls and boys do seem to like different things, but this type of crap is just brain washing.

  How rude posted by GolfHacker @ 68.7.234.28 on Nov 11 2007 4:09 AM  
For the record, let me state that this is a game designed BY a girl FOR girls. My wife designed this game based on something that most girls like: clothes. I simply did the programming and the artwork. The rest is all hers. I don't understand it, but it obviously appeals to girls because it has sold very well on the Windows platform. It also appeals to a lot of women of varying ages as well, because there are college girls, single women, mothers, and grandmothers who purchased this game for themselves, not for children - many have written us to tell us they have fond memories of playing with paper dolls as a kid, and this game reminds them of that. So the game has a very broad appeal. It has also garnered quite a large and loyal fan base over the past four years, more than I've seen a lot of games generate. Now, when it comes to girls' interests, my wife will tell you that most guys are clueless - you two are certainly proof of that. Science?? Puh-lease. My wife hates science. So do 5 of my 6 nieces, and our moms, and our aunts and sisters. Sure some girls like science, but most don't - it's not a lack of opportunity for them to learn or pursue it, it just doesn't appeal to them. Same with lots of other school classes: like auto shop, machine shop, wood-working, or a host of other electives I could think of. On the other hand, I hated sewing, cooking, and other stuff they taught in home economics classes. I still do. Brainwashing? Stereotypical? Come on... one might as well call a racing game stereotypical because boys like cars and speed, or call a 3d shooter like Quake, Doom, or Half-Life brainwashing because it teaches boys to use guns. Jeez. Give me a break. Girls like clothes. Get over it. I don't expect everyone to like the game, and if you don't, that's fine. I understand it isn't for everyone. But don't slander me or call my character into question - especially when you don't even know me, you haven't met me or talked to me, and you have no idea what kind of a person I am. That is totally unwarranted and uncalled for, and I find your statements very insulting, degrading, and humiliating.

The way your talk about how well this game sells, I can at least know you enough to guess you are thinking about the sweet money you'll be making instead of whether making a game like this is the right thing to do. Furthermore, the fact that you are still insulted / degraded / humiliated tells me you aren't "just the programmer," that you take some personal stake / pride in your work; that's a good thing, but if you end up sacrificing the work you do for the sake of making money, well, it's just something to think about, isn't it? That being said, Even though I am a guy I do think this game is pretty cute. I would even get it for myself, if it were FOSS.

"Brainwashing? Stereotypical?" Yes, it's either that or there's a sewing-gene and an auto shop-gene and so forth. Genes play a part, but social norms (nurture as opposed to nature) are very powerful and are often deepening the divide. "Come on... one might as well call a racing game stereotypical because boys like cars and speed, or call a 3d shooter like Quake, Doom, or Half-Life brainwashing because it teaches boys to use guns." Yes, if they are geared towards boys and not girls. And this is true for many games: They are about "manly" things and the characters one may choose are all male. In many games there are both sexes as characters, but often the female characters are sexy, which doesn't help the problem of brainwashing kids into believing in the stereotypes. Toy- and clothing companies are making it very clear that boys and girls are different, as if there was (and I guess there is, but I don't understand why) a commercial interest in perpetuating outdated gender roles. Perpetuation of stereotypical gender roles is omnipresent throughout society, which is why it can be difficult to see. I don't want my daughter (or son) to identify being a woman with being pretty and caring about superficial things. They can choose to care about these things, but I want them to know that society should not impose certain kinds of behavior on them.

OMG, you are being serious lol.

Bleeting Cultural Marxist propaganda and yet having hope for your children's future; how ironic.

Mr Anonymous here thinks that his beloved Cultural Marxism is going to create a Brave New World as depicted by Aldous Huxley, except he's too brainwashed to realise he's going to end up living Orwell's 1984.

Both Unreal Tournament (any version) and Quake (only tried Q3a) have female chars. They are not enforcing a stereotype. Even if mostly boys are playing, the games make no attempt to discourage girls from playing. And racing games? The only times I've even seen a character is when driving an open top car, and the driver was wearing a helmet. Might as well be a woman under that helmet. Someone like Vanina Ickx.

"In the cultural Marxism of Political Correctness certain groups are good – feminist women, (only feminist women, non-feminist women are deemed not to exist) blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals. These groups are determined to be "victims", and therefore automatically good regardless of what any of them do. Similarly, white males are determined automatically to be evil, thereby becoming the equivalent of the bourgeoisie in economic Marxism."

Feminism is a tool (and not the only one) that is being used to destroy Western Christianity. You just haven't realised this yet.

This comedic post is implying girls shouldn't be interested in looking pretty; clothes, toys, books and music [videos] should be unisex and that the player should be allowed to dress-up little boys in little girls clothes.

Please people, it's not meant to be taken seriously :)

If you don't like this game, you are free to make your own game. It is very easy to criticize others' work.

I love the idea of this game being targeted at linux at any price. I just wish I could have a go. I do hope they make some money from this.

Ouch! What distribution/version are you running on? I can't seem to reproduce this - I downloaded and installed successfully on Kubuntu 7.04 and SUSE 10.0.

  Re: Doesn't run posted by GolfHacker @ 68.7.234.28 on Nov 10 2007 3:31 PM  
Oh! Maybe you're trying to run the executable directly - that doesn't work. We have instructions about this on the download page at our web site, but I see the instructions aren't here. I'll see if I can edit the post. Anyway, if you run from the command line, you should invoke the "fashion" script. Otherwise, just use the desktop and menu shortcuts (assuming you are on a LSB-compliant distro).

I am on Fedora 7.
Yes, I tried to run the executable directly as the menu entry did nothing.
Running the fashion script I get the following:
$ ./fashion ./FashionCentsDeluxe: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/local/games/FashionCentsDeluxeTrial/libfreeimageplus.so.3: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied Does it try to write into the game directory?

Oh, btw, I updated the game description to the new one you provided.

Ah, this is the old SELinux problem. The SELinux configuration is preventing the executable from running, due to TEXTRELs in the FreeImage library. Try running this command: "chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /libfreeimageplus-3.9.3.so", and then see if the game runs.
