High School Story is a game following your own customizable teenager who has recently opened a new high school in hopes of offering the best school experience to any new student transfer. Players can choose characters to go on dates, throw parties, complete missions, play pranks, and watch as friendships develop. It follows the same style of the continuous storyline on Surviving High School, as the more you progress, the further the story advances. It is similar to the other game Pixelberry has released, Hollywood U: Rising Stars.
