ArianeB 5.50 final and finally!

Entry 1162 posted in: a. ArianeB


NEW: THE ARIANEB WALKTHROUGHS have now got their own domain:
http://arianeb.atagong.com


Update : the latest walkthroughs for the ArianeB 6.21 game can be found at: The ArianeB 6.21 walkthroughs: All in one 

“Back with a much anticipated Dating Sim update.”, is the short and sharp message from the ArianeB blog.

Unfinished Projects had already revealed that for the past couple of months the online 5.0 version of ArianeB (or Virtually Date Ariane) was slowly being upgraded, but now it is finally official that version 5.5 can be downloaded for offline gameplay as well.

According to its anonymous creator changes have (gradually) taken place on five different parts of the game:
Consistency: the ending scenarios should have more consistent rules.
Eroticism: the game tries hard to stay R rated.
Rebecca: at least one new Rebecca scenario (12 pics) has been implemented (version 5.1 already had an alternative Rebecca club scene).
Styling: several pictures have been restyled.
Scenarios: existing scenarios and situations have been slightly rewritten. Lots of text adaptations have been made.

A quick directory check found 218 new pictures compared to version 5.0 (124 in 2009 alone), although some of them have just been saved with a new date, have only slightly altered graphics or are ‘intermediate’ scenes that weren’t there before . The diningpants and skinnyunder picture scenes are quite promising though.

Also the text has been altered a lot, it should be more funny in places and easier to read.

Several remakes and add-ons for ArianeB exist and the author is well aware of those. As a matter of fact he used some ideas of one of the hacks to upgrade the game and that is why he changed the licensing of the game to ‘creative commons’.

In his own words:

If you want to host it advertisement free somewhere else, go ahead.
If you want to translate the text into other languages, go ahead.
If you want to do versions on other media, it’s OK.

Only:

You are not allowed to make money off of it.

I guess it is now up to me to start playing all over again for the couple of next days and publish new walkthroughs. Wish me luck.
