The game Kudos basically is a lot like an English version of the RPG Princess Maker, though the person is older and can be male or female.
The company that makes the Princess Maker games, truly hate making a profit or gaining customers because they refuse to translate their game into English or any other language. They spend all that money on development but won’t spend a small amount to relates. Tons of people want to buy that RPG and some even tried learning Japanese to play newer versions, but the company who made it despite it all just must hate making a profit or getting any new customers. I have the old Princess Maker 2 English version which was a fan made and it was a good RPG, though some stats didn’t make sense.
Kudos and 2 are what people are looking for when they want a game like that. As for The Sims, I never considered them a good RPG simulation as they just seem to do it badly and The Sims always have a setting for “bladder” and pretty much most characters can never hold it.
