After opening a store, I need to put merchandise in it. The most popular game Date Ariane, has not been updated in a few years, so that is what I have been working on the last week or so.
The new version, which I am just calling “2021” combines the 6 versions that I used to host into one single version. All 5 languages are included, but because the game has radically changed since the “international” versions were made, I had to “Google Translate” to Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese. Yes I know these will seem unnatural and strange to native speakers, but I worked hard to make sure every section of the game is translated, no more sudden lines of untranslated English popping up occasionally. At least I think I found them all.
One negative of this for everybody is I reduced the number of Trivia questions from 64 mostly American pop culture trivia questions, to 16 international friendly questions about math, science, geography, world history, and world politics. (Hint: The World Politics question is about Brexit)
On the positive side, there are three new achievements, now totaling 81, that I think you will like better. I want to talk about them, but I’ll leave this post spoiler free.
My store is through Payloadz, a storefront service I have bought from before and have been mostly happy with. They offer fast downloads, and the ability to redownload your past purchases for free if you create a login. Great for free updates.
Store links available on Date Ariane page.
UPDATE: Ariane in Paradise is now in the store. I finished the coding of SITA and RMA, but the newest release of Renpy has some bugs that will cause the games made on them to not work on some PCs, so I am waiting for the next release of Renpy to finish those. Also, I am working on android versions, with RMA being the only one that is ready. Should have a full store of all files in a couple of weeks, or end of January at the latest.
