Pregnancy is a game feature and the outcome of the storylines of many characters in Summertime Saga. Most are optional and are not requested to complete the routes.
In the course of the love stories, the player is able to make women pregnant through the impregnation minigame. Each character has her own initial chance of fertilization, see the summary table below.
Pills for pregnancy planning become available at the hospital at the end of Diane’s route. First, you have to talk to the nurse on the 2nd floor, then to Roz on the 1st floor, and finally, enter the lab in the basement where you run into Dr. Priya Singh while searching the cases. The drugs are used by clicking on the items inside the inventory. Their effects are permanent but not definitive since each type of pill cancels the effect of the other one:
- Cumdoom pills prevent insemination, reducing the chance to 0%.
- Pregnax pills make fertilization easier, raising the chance by 20%.
One week after the fertilization, the announcement is made and the main character may have to convince the mother to keep the child using his charisma. From then on, this event lasts 6 weeks during which the progress of some routes is paused. The gestation evolves over 4 weeks with three different stages until another message informs about the birth. Newborns can be a boy, a girl, or twins of opposite sexes - this choice being random but restricted by who is the pregnant character. The mother and the baby may stay inside the hospital a few days. Another 2 weeks pass until the baby is sent to daycare and normal activities are resumed. Related dialogues and scenes are present throughout the maternity.
