The idea I see in my head would have your custom character walk around in 3D, cel-shaded space, now that I've seen that 3D cel-shaded renderings of 2D art CAN look great. You'd be able to explore places like the school, parts of the neighborhood (that you're allowed to go n__n), other kids' homes once you are allowed to come over, even explore your own new home (probably a save point or options menu there somewhere).
Friendship among the kids would be achieved in various ways, be it talking to them, playing games with them, doing nice things for them, etc. Just about any interaction like you make friends in real life. You COULD earn friendship simply by JUST talking, but that doesn't work on ALL the cubs, maybe just Izzy. In order to build a STRONG relationship with each kid, you'd need to exercise MOST or ALL forms of interactivity available to you in the game.
Quests, I guess, would be things like if you pay enough attention to their likes, dislikes, conversations and such, you could figure out (on your own or with a togglable hint option) what would be a nice thing to do for that person and go off and either do it yourself or with the help of any friends you've acquired in order to boost your friendship in a big way, but these would be optional.
