Date Ariane may not have been the first dating sim to only have a single character, or created using 3D graphics, though I dont know any that predate it, and I wasnt influenced by any.

I called it a "date simulator" because I heard the term used in reference to games in Japan, but having never played any, I just took the term literally.

I made what I thought a date simulator would be like.

Without realizing it, I created an all new sub genre of "visual novel".

The game is similar to a "choose your own adventure game" that will have a different outcome depending on your choices along the way.

Some of the things you can choose to do with Ariane are: introduce book compliment dress kiss on cheek answer over 18 rub hair click stereo jazz kiss lips kiss neck change to soft rock kiss lips kiss neck exit and go to kitchen drink wine x2 get steaks for BBQ click on seat (look at sky) get the question right!

eat dinner in a swimsuit stand in hall eat dinner talk to her compliment her drink wine exit get dressed and go downtown (click on car) - wait outside head to outskirts go to cabaret click on amateur night sign Remove Jacket Chair Dance Contest Results Go Home Wait outside bathroom ask to stay the night-click bedroom Option 2: just found this out, instead of waiting outside bathroom you can walk in, then she says she want to go to hot tub.

A Bx G romantic comedy visual novel done with 3D graphics.

Something's In The Air is a dating sim visual novel with about 25 endings and many twists and surprises.

You play a 20-something single guy in a new city where you don't know very many people and you are looking to meet some new people, especially female people. This is my attempt to Americanize the dating sim visual novel.

Instead of many dates over a span of time, these all take place on the same Saturday night.

A mystery develops as time line events don't always happen like they are supposed to.
