There is some ambient sound and music, so you don't necessarily have to employ external audio stimulation for immersion purposes. One of the advantages of very old games was that it stimulated your brain to make up for the lacks in graphics and sound.

Anyways this low production level is actually a staple of the genre. That's why games that would know be considered archaic felt very engaging back in their day.

Despite my initial presumptuous attitude, I found Date Ariane to be fairly entertaining to play.

The pre-rendered graphics, although not great, are adequate.

In general, when file formats are converted, some loss of image quality occurs, so it is best to convert images as little as possible.

A Word about Resolution Digital photos are bitmapped images, meaning the image is composed of pixels or a grid of color squares.

TIFF (Tagged Information File Format) or TIF is the standard image file format for commercial printers.

These files should be saved in CMYK mode, and bigger is better.

Furthermore Ariane's face is modeled with enough care to convey subtle emotions.

If you enjoy this game, then you might want to check out some of the Japanese games that have been translated into English, such as the weird Hatoful Boyfriend.

Going out for a walk, driving to the club, visiting the amusement park are all strategic steps in getting you laid, hopefully. Turning off Ariane is no biggie though, as you can try dating her again and again.

Be advised, whatever you say and do this night will help Ariane decide on a score. The game visuals are extremely static, except for a couple of lively scenes, if you get my drift.

However, with more compression there is more loss of image quality. For printing use, it is best to convert the image to a CMYK TIFF.
