Something’s In The Air is One Year Old

Something's In The Air is one year old this week, at least the open beta is. Combined Beta and 1.0 downloads has reached 93,000.  I recently did a new play through using my tablet PC, and only found two minor bugs. I plan to do a 1.1 version once the Date Ariane update is done, …

Something’s In The Air 1.0

After over two years of work, Something's In The Air is finally done (for now), with version 1.0 now released. You can download it here for Windows, Mac, or Linux. Two years seems like a long time for a fairly short game, but this was a very part time hobby, and I would not have …

Lessons Learned From Beta Testing

After just shy of a month of my open beta test, with 30,000 downloads, I have learned a few things. Thought I'd post some thoughts, as well as give people an opportunity to point out other stuff I might have missed. First the good news, it seems Something's In The Air is a critical success. …

SITA: Top 10 Secrets and Stuff You Probably Missed

1.) If you drop an MP3 file called "amecameca.mp3" in the "game" folder, the band will play that song instead of the lame royalty free one that's in there now.  The song I would have loved to use there is this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLVWZ6Y9aew I was listening to Deluka while creating the images for the band. …

GAME ON!! Something’s In The Air is Now Out!

After more than two years in development, Something's In The Air is now available for download at ArianeB.com/sita.  There is a lot of downloading going on , so it may take a while to load the 180MB file, but I have not heard any complaints that the download is not working. I'm calling this an …

And Then a New Bonnie

I did a close beta test with a couple of people I know.  They both indicated (and the truth is I agree) that the Bonnie the Bartender story was the weakest.  Since none of you have seen the game, you don't know what I am talking about. Basically, she is a bartender you pick up …

What’s New With Ariane

I thought I'd take time out from working on Something's In The Air, to show some changes to Ariane.  If I get around to updating Date Ariane, I will be using these models.  So this is more of a preview of the prequel remake, I think. Ariane's looks have changed once again. This time I …
