At the Shark's Lagoon forum it was hinted a couple of days ago that SITA was close to an official release, promised for September, and before I could put this news on the blog, there it is already, announced on the official Ariane blog and on the SITA website.
Several things have changed in Sita 1.0 compared to the beta that was downloaded over 47 thousand times (read my first impressions).
The 40 endings on the 'score' card have been reduced to 25 as 'bad' endings no longer count. A player notebook has been added though so that completists still can hunt for all possible endings and scenarios (around 50, if my memory is correct).
One story (probably the Paula one that ties the other together) will only start if enough clues have been found in the previous dates. The 'do you know any gymnasts' cliffhanger has been deleted all together, but the good news is that version 1.0 contains a new Ariane ending that wasn't present in the beta version.
Ariane gave the following away at Shark's Lagoon:
There are two ways to get to the "Celebrity Sightings" ending, which lets face it is the worst of the Ariane endings, so I am hijacking one of those ways and squeezing in a new ending telling the originally abandoned story of what happens at the rock concert when the lights go out.
And another hint is given at the Ariane blog:
If Whiskey made Ariane act a little crazy in Date Ariane, wait until you see what Tequila does in SITA.
There are a few other surprises, but I let discover them for yourself. Or just read the latest blog entry from the Ariane blog if you really can't wait.
Now that SITA has officially appeared I'm a bit on a dilemma . This blog entry appears simultaneously on the ArianeB 7.2 Walkthroughs and on the (beta) SITA Walkthroughs. Actually, I'm still not sure if I ever will make a blog compiling all the possible walkthroughs like I did for the first Ariane Dating Sim, but if I will it will probably end up at the separate SITA blog.
For the moment, happy hunting for that new Ariane ending!
