Whoops! We forgot to wish you a Happy New Year, although those looking for a quick and easy way to get ArianeB in the sack will not really care for these wishes. So let's get on with it because some believe this is the final year of our universe.
Ariane Barnes: Aspiring Video Game Star
A spin-off of the ArianeB series are the comics that can be found under the title Ariane Barnes: Aspiring Video Game Star. Thirteen comics have been published so far, mostly with a gentle nod from the gaming to the real world. They range from the amusing to the brilliant and we still have a soft spot for number seven as it is so damn realistic in a funny way.
It took the creator three years to make this new comic and it contains a mild sarcastic stab to those fans who think that the new ArianeB should still look like her previous incarnation.
Something's In The Air
But the best news is about the sequel that has finally found a name: Something's In The Air. You can read all about it at the latest blog post of the ArianeB domain: The sequel has a title.
The new version will have 6 main stories, five that can be played in random order and a sixth that will only be opened when the other 5 have successfully ended. Within the next six months a demo of the first chapter should be published and work on the other chapters will be finalised at a later stage.
So splendid news for us, Ariane-lovers. But something in the six-story-set-up is nagging us and we wouldn't be surprised that only the first demo will be for free and that some additional chapters will turn into a commercial venture.
There's nothing against that, obviously, there have been enough ArianeB clones around that all asked a fair amount of money to be played, while the high-quality original has been free for as long as we can remember.
In the meantime the first adventure of ArianeB can be found at arianeb dot com, playable online or as a download: Go on a virtual date with me, Ariane .
And if you are stuck the blog you are reading now offers nearly 50 different scenarios for the game. Have fun!
