Something’s In The Air Redux Coming this month!

After almost a year of development, Something’s In The Air Redux will be coming out this month. I just released what I hope is my last “beta” release on Patreon, and the game will be available on itch.io for anyone to purchase by the end of the month.

From the itch.io description:

Something’s In The Air Redux is a sequel to Date Ariane Remastered, but it is designed to be a stand alone game.

In part, a remastering of the original Something’s In The Air (2013), but with a streamlined story and playable as either a straight male or gay female character each with slightly different content.

Also in part, a satire of the “harem” dating sim genre with surprising new content over and above the original surprising content.

The original Something’s In The Air was the first Renpy based visual novel to be made with 3D renders.  A pretty impressive feat considering that they now number in the thousands.  I helped spawn a genre (and it helps that making these games is a lot of fun).

I made this “Redux” version partly because the “Remastered” Date Ariane demanded it, but being a remake of the first of a genre has some potential.  It was never as popular as Date Ariane, so I didn’t feel obligated to be true to the original, hence some old “sequel” related content got dropped, and satirical genre defying content was added.

I also incorporated the third game of the series Rachel Meets Ariane and added it to the end to make one big game out of two.

Trailer coming soon!

I’ll be posting about the game over the next two or three months, including the release of a trailer on You Tube. There is a NSFW draft trailer posted on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/dateariane/comments/11zadqq/somethings_in_the_air_redux_trailer/

  • I’m confused. Will the remastered game be available on Steam like the remastered Ariane or will it only be available through itchio?

    • Initially it will be itch.io only, there is a big approval process and waiting period to get on steam. I don’t know the time frame on any of that yet, but I am already tinkering with a steam deck build for the game.
