BASINGSTOKE, England (April 7th 2005) â€“ International software publisher DEEP SILVER are delighted to announce that SINGLES is back!

SINGLES 2: TRIPLE TROUBLE releases on May 27th and is available on PC CD ROM (Â£19.99)
Picture the scene if you may........
You've been dumped! With a chance to make it big on the music scene you suffered from stage fright and blew the whole deal. Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if your partner hadn't arranged the whole thing. You've been a real loser! All that was left was to watch your love life and career wash down the drain. You wallow in self pity, you cry yourself to sleep, you replay that worn out love song, you...........wait a minute, WAIT A GOD DAMN MINUTE!! No nagging, no commitment, no hassle, you're single!
It's time to reorganize your life. There is so much to consider and so much to do. There is only one thing for it, write everything down.
The singles checklist
FIND A NEW PAD! Sorted! Got chatting to Kim who's renting out 2 rooms in her downtown apartment! Looks like she could be a lot of fun!
GET SOME NEW THREADS! New undies purchased - change
CHECK OUT A NEW SCENE! Spotted this funky new bar. Door policy â€“ no chavs!! Perfect!
Everything is finally looking up as you wait outside your new apartment. The doorway to your future is about to open but no sooner as it does your past suddenly slaps you hard in the face. Who other than you ex is standing there in front of you! A minor detail that Kim had forgotten to inform you both about.
Emotions come flooding back as you're confronted with the person that once stole your heart. You feel happy, you feel disturbed, you feel confused, you feel horny. But with someone that is still mad at you, it's hard to even get them to acknowledge your arrival.
From here on you have to make the decisions. But don't think that rekindling a once burning flame is going to be easy. You'll have to learn that all is fair in love and war and that every action will have its consequence. Candlelit dinners are fine but don't have them thinking you are trying too hard. Sometimes a little bedroom snooping or maybe the odd bit of flirting could be a better option.
Caught in a bind? Your latest moves or pick-up lines are failing to impress? Sounding familiar? Well, you can always head to the nearby bar and visit Magnet, your friend and mentor in all things to do with music and relationships.
You must prove that you have changed and your tools for doing so are time, money and humour, which you must make best use of if you are to success. Altogether it's a cavalcade of flirts and affairs as you sort out your feelings and slowly turn yourself into the person your ex always wanted you to be.
Failing that, maybe staying single is altogether the best solution ;) With the option to invite friends over to the apartment, who knows what could happen.
