The player will be at the title screen of the game which the player can choose "Start Game" or "Payable Content". When the player takes longer the time to choose on of the sections, the title screen will skip to the video intro, but the player can have the option to watch the video or to skip the video to get to the title screen. Press the A button at Start Game. The player can choose three slots, choose one of the slots to start the game.
The player can create it's own avatar, which the player can create it's own original character. The first one is Gender to choose the gender of its avatr between a boy or a girl. The second one is Body which the player can choose its own height of the character between average, slim, squat, lanky, or chubby and also the skin color of its avatar which the player can choose of ten different color from light to dark. The third one is Head which the player can choose it's own head shape between round, angular, chubby, egghead, sturdy, or square. The fourth one is Hairstyle, which the player can choose its own hairstyle. There is a difference actually, the hairstyle you can choose have no category, which means that if the player picks a boy, he has the option to go through the game with a female haircut, or if the player is a girl, she has the option to go through the game with a male haircut. For your own sake, I've made a section which haircut is definitely male or female:
Bob and Tail
The player can also choose which haircolor its hair should be. The player can choose from the colors: ginger, pumpkin, strawberry, coral red, chesnut, auburn, lavender, violet, pearl, silver, ash, plum, cobalt, blueberry, marine, sky, peppermint, melon, pistachio, olive, straw, sand, peach, beige, denim, fern, lilac, teal, avocado, sandstone, liquorice, jet black, chocolate, coffee, honey, gold, pale gold, salmon, cream and pure white. Once chose the hairstyle and haircolor, the player can move on to the fifth section which is the Face which the player can choose different facial features in the categories: eyes, eyebrows, nose, ears, mouth, and others.
Just FYI to new players, Male and female have different clothing options so, if you want them all have two saved games one as a guy and one as a gal to have both possibilities if you wish. Mind you certain things are unisex such as kilts and aprons along with starting clothes for each life given to you by King Erik . Please keep this in mind for all playthroughs for this game.
