July 30th Update

The preview for the next date, Amy, is now online. Here are some details for those interested.

This will be the next free game, not for the offsite.

This game will also work a little differently, as I want to experiment with a few different gameplay aspects for this one. The first big difference is that this time, you will be playing as the date, Amy. You will control her actions throughout her evening and hopefully give her a happy ending. This is mainly to introduce some new challenges to the gameplay. Similar scenarios may occur, but since you are the woman, you will have to solve them in different ways.

Also note that, although you play as her, any interactions with a male (you), are still in first person. Also, since you control her choices, you can do things like focus on women more, maybe ditching the guy altogether, maybe even trying to get two women to come back to your house if you want to.

The format is designed as an experiment, so not all future games will be like this, although that depends on popularity of course.

On a last note, this game will also use an engine similar to the Latricia date (and the arianeb game before it), rather than the cookies based one. The last time around that I tried it, I got very frustrated with the way you have to implement the instructions, but I've altered the way I assemble everything now, so it's not so bad.

Final words :

- This week I will be reuploading the games to a different filehost. If you want to read the info about my current trouble with rapidshare, see the blog post from a little while ago. I will also be uploading some games translated into French from a very helpful fan.
