The sequel will not only have an entirely new Ariane.
Also the gameplay will change considerably as it will be a visual novel, made with the freeware Ren'Py.
Also a minor clothing change, Ariane’s underwear is dark grey instead of tie-dyed pink.
I also give Ariane some fun expressions that she uses in certain circumstances.
Reactions from the fans were mixed although everyone had to agree that the old 3D model was outdated and needed a makeover.
The Creator did listen though to our wishes and created yet another incarnation of our favourite cybergirl.
Different locations use different lighting and rendering.
This will obviously enhance Ariane's corporate image, but it does look like a frankenmix operation to me, a kind of smothering like the KGB used to do on old USSR pictures containing people who fell from grace for one reason or another.
I caught the term frankenmix on a music forum where it was used to describe a remastered, updated and modernised release of a sixties music track by using digital technology and effects.
Visual novels are quite common in Japan but have never really caught on in the western world because they mostly fiddle around with typical Japanese subjects and fetishes.
I have once jokingly described those as stories 'where the only purpose seems to be to put as many tentacles from an alien octopus into the different orifices of a badly drawn under aged hentai girl'.
