My Next Game: Ariane in Paradise
I have been hesitant to post anything about this, because I have a bad habit of starting something and then bailing on it half way through, but I am far enough along on this project to tell you about it.
If you follow me on Facebook and Tumblr, you may have noticed that my latest Ariane pictures look similar and she is dressed the same. That’s because I am making a new game. Currently titled “Ariane in Paradise”.
After experimenting with the genre with Something In The Air and Rachel and Ariane, I wanted to go back and do a second game like Date Ariane that is a little more chaotic and spontaneous. My original thought was create a new character, but I like Ariane too much so I decided I just need a new setting.
I thought about a tropical island game since I made the epilogue of Something In The Air, but wasn’t sure how to go about it. Then I saw VDateGames has already done a couple of them, Zoe is free to play if you want to get the idea of where I am going with this.
It also helps that over the years I have collected a bunch of tropical themed 3D sets that I have barely even used.
The basic premise is this: Ariane follows Rachel to a fictional tropical island, where for Rachel it is a work trip: she is doing photo shoots for the entire week. This leaves Ariane all alone during the daytime hours to find some fun things to do. You are on vacation alone on the same island where you meet Ariane at the hotel pool.
I don’t want to get into details, because they are likely to change, but I wanted to throw that premise out there to tie all the stories together. You are not playing the same character as Date Ariane and SITA, in fact you can choose to be female if you want, that means you have to meet Ariane all over again.
Also, Ariane only has free time during the day, which means that unlike Date Ariane and SITA, both of which primarily take place at night, this game will primarily take place under sun and mostly blue skies.
I made it a fictional place, because making it a real place could offend people that live there. A fictional place allows me to, for example, create relaxed nudity laws. It also helps that my collection of exotic island sets include Mediterranean, Caribbean, and Polynesian looking props, so a generic tropical island in an unnamed ocean keeps the anachronisms down.
I have no time table of when it will be done. SITA and Rachel and Ariane both took around two years. I’m doing this for my own enjoyment, and I hate deadlines, so it will be ready when its ready.
so when will this game be ready for download?
Warning for everybody : Don’t feed the troll!
Thank you for making those games, please take all the time you need!
I don’t care to wait 2 years, cause I trust your storyteller skills to make me dream :).
I can hardly wait 🙂
Good luck! I look forward to seeing the finished game! 🙂
Thanks, in fact I might have to give you some story credit. As it stands now, the opening section of the game is a beat for beat copy of your game “Miranda”, except different dialogue and different pictures (though I haven’t come up with a better line than the “breast stroke” joke). Ariane’s interests are different, and she is more likely to use “dude” instead of “hun”, but yeah very similar. The game breaks with the Miranda plot after the hotel lobby scene, as Ariane goes shopping instead of watching volleyball.
Hope you are OK with it.
Sounds fine by me. 🙂
Forgot to mention – I might also be in a position to help make some images for you if your interested. Remember, thanks to your guide a while back, I have my own arianeb model, and obviously I already have plenty of tropical paradise scenes set up.
Just let me know if you’d like someone to lighten the load of your work a little.
I might have a section in Day 3 you could help with, but it may be a while, I’m still working on Day 1 material.
I hope this game will let you play as female. Not that I’m complaining. I still think Date Ariane and Something’s In The Air should be updated that let’s you play as female.
My current goal is to do this. I’m writing alternative dialogue. Eventually I’ll need alternative pictures, too.
Whe available to download
Looking forward to see the final game!
Is it in Renpy? If so, I can help translate to Portuguese 😛 (if I have time)
Glad to see you are making another game with Ariane.
The original ‘Dating Ariane’ was the first dating game I played, and I loved it. Great memories.
Hi there! I tried to post a comment, but it won’t show up, but if you already saw that, feel free to delete this one.
I writing to ask about the “first” player in the first Ariane game, and SITA. What’s his situation? Was he just some sort of a fling, that it won’t be mentionned again? If So, I feel a bit disappointed. I mean, we learned throug the two first games that Ariane isn’t that into relationships, but is willing to begin one with Rachel. So I thought it might be better if the new game features the old player, and try to adress his situation with Ariane, and give some sort of closure.
That was actually my original game plan, but the plot of the new game best fits a new character, one which you have a say in creating as you play.
I see. Sorry if I sound a bit pushy here, but is there a plan in the future, where you’ll adress this “issue”? It doesn’t have to be a game, just a story where you conclude the “Ariane saga” as I like to call it.
When is it coming
When the be ready for download ?
i love it when Ariane’s universe is expanding! if you have time maybe you should write some Date Ariane Lore for those who want to know more about your characters.
I’m so excited! Can’t wait, I have a request. Can we have some new sex scenes along with the ability to actually see the penis or vagina touching the vagina? Might be a bit out there but it takes me out of the realism. Much appreciated and am looking forward to the game!
Hey, hope this question is too terribly weird, but one of the parts I really enjoyed from date Ariane was some of the more exhibitionist elements (i.e the parts where she’s naked in public). I know you mentioned the island would have laxed public nudity laws but do you intend on incorporating more elements like that in the game? Either way, I’m very excited for this project. Best of luck!
Aww… I was shipping Rachel and Ariane…
Como lo descargo ??
Hello Ariane! I came to give some tips on games! I really enjoyed the Something’s in the Air franchise, and Date Ariane. I think it would be cool to play a game focused on dating both of them, and in my view, it would be cool to focus on the character Rachel; which appears in Something’s in the air, and specifically make a game like Date Ariane, only focused on different characters (like Rachel)! Since their games made (and still do) success, it would be cool to do with different genres or people. It would be an unusual and peculiar experience. Thanks for reading!
When is the gaming coming for Android
