UPDATED! 1.03: I am releasing a patch available here.  Patch notes can be found here. Android users should just download latest version.

For PC and Linux, extract the patch to the same directory arianeinparadise.exe is located, it should want to copy over 28 files, say yes, when you launch it should say 1.03 in lower right corner.

For Mac users, you can try extracting to\Contents\Resources\autorun folder and let it overwrite.

For Android users, when I installed new version, it said it was corrupt, it is not.  I had to uninstall and reinstall to get it to work, and lost all my saved games in the process, hopefully it works better for you.

I’ll post more extensively about the making of the game and a “Directors commentary”, but for now have fun exploring!

    • To get the size down on android, I shrunk the pictures to half of their PC size, but if I did the same thing on the text it would be unreadable, so text is 2/3rds the size of the PC version.

      This results in text not always fitting properly on the screen. I’ve gone through most of the game changing the spacing and format of the text to get it to fit properly on the screen, but there may still be places where it doesn’t fit.

      Is that what you are seeing? I had at least one report where an android device completely rearranged the text and pictures to make it unplayable. I own a Huawei 8 inch tablet, and it works fine on that, but that is the only android device I have tested it on, but most of the Patreon testers played it just fine as well.

      If it is just a few lines that get cut off, tell me what they are and I’ll try and fix them. If it is all over the place the game may not work on your device.

  1. On Android, half of the display gets dark when text is displayed. This makes it hard so see images and is rather annoying, is there a way to fix this?

  2. One of my Patreons reported the Android version looked like this on his device:

    Is this what other people are seeing? I have not been able to replicate it, so I can’t troubleshoot. The dark background bar shouldn’t be there and the choices text on the bottom right should adjust to the edge of the screen and not overflow. This was reported on a Huawei P9 Lite. I have a Huawei 8″ tablet which was what I tested the android version on and it works fine.

    UPDATE! This issue might have been fixed in the 1.03 build. If someone who was having this issue could they download it and test it?

  3. Great work as always! And thanks for making it available for free!

    I have one doubt: what does it change if Ariane finds out you’re not American?

    Also, I really like the game but can’t help but think you’re a little averse to threesomes. I remember playing Date Ariane a lot to try to get a threesome before knowing it wasn’t possible. Is there any reason for it?

    I do like the “sad” ending, though. The Casablanca reference is a nice little touch.

    • Thanks!
      The American or not American thing. I originally had planned a game of beach “football” instead volleyball, and if you were not American you would insist it be called “football”, but Ariane insists it is “soccer”. Ultimately I had the props for volleyball and not football, so I made the scene volleyball.
      Except for a scene with Rachel where you never heard of “Loco-Cola”, there really is no difference.

    • Any specific error messages? I know when I ran it the first time on Windows 10, I got a big warning “this file is unsafe” and had to click “More Info” and “Run anyways” to get it to run.

      If you have stricter security software, it may not even give you that option and it will just refuse to run.
