Sorority Life is a game created by Playdom played on both Facebook and Myspace. It was designed by Steve Meretzky and was released in 2008. It is a Massive Multiplayer online role-playing game or MMORPG.
Credits and levelsEdit
You start with a few credits in various attributes (with differing effects) such as energy, stamina, confidence, and popularity. Most socializing (the main way of rising from one level to the next) uses energy, but energy, like the other attributes, is renewed over time, up to your current maximum. You can choose which of those maximum levels to increase with the few skill points you gain at each new level and occasionally as a reward for an activity.
You pay a little "play money" for job training; thereafter you get an hourly salary; at higher levels you can pay a higher training fee for a more lucrative job. Money buys glam and other things; any not needed should be banked or it may be stolen by players who succeed in an attack against you.
Your avatar is a slim model whom you can dress any way you choose (with what you have won or can afford).
You are encouraged to get your Facebook Friends to become your Sorority Life sisters. The game structures that by saying your friend joins your house - and you become part of his or her house in the same action. That strengthens your game in a number of ways:
- You can send them gifts (with some automated selection) and broadcast messages to all at once
- You can vote for up to 25 sisters (with one click) per day; each recipient gets $50
- Their levels of the various attributes (confidence, popularity, etc) are combined with yours in any fight you have.
A side activity in the game is the earning of Brownie Points. You get a Brownie Point for each new level achieved and occasionally get one as a reward for an activity. You can also pay real money for them. Brownie Points are spent in some activities and can buy some of the most exclusive items of glam (including the best boyfriends) as well as play money "cash".
