In 2001, I invented the “Ariane Barnes” online persona in hopes of creating an Alternate Reality Game based on her.That turned out too ambitious, so I created a “choose your own adventure” game based on the concept of simulating a date with Ariane Barnes.

(The other goal of every artist is to sell a work for a lot of money so they don’t have to work again.
So far that one has eluded me.) So I am going to tell you how I created a game that inspired many other games.
I didn’t know any of this when I created defies so many conventions of traditional visual novels, like how it loops upon itself, has no coherent story, and involves a bunch of events that can be done in different order.
I have been using Poser since the late 90’s, which is why I used 3D graphics instead of Manga art.
Because the one thing I can take away from all this is this: I invented a genre, or at least a subgenre (or a subgenre of a subgenre). How about “created a work original enough to influence the creation of” a subgenre. One of the goals of every artist to do exactly this!
OK, “invented” is not the right word, because genres only become genres if other people are contributing. Achievement unlocked, I guess I can call myself an artist.
Turns out what I created was a visual novel, a popular gaming genre in Japan, romance simulation is a subgenre of the visual novel.
Anyone familiar with the subgenre knows that they are always done with 2D manga style art, and almost always involve multiple partners to choose from.
So I released “Dating Simulator” on the web in 2004, and made improvements as I went.
may not have been the first dating sim done in 3D graphics, thought I don’t know of any that predate it, and I wasn’t influenced by any.
It is even possible that it is not the first dating sim with one character and in 3D, but it was the first to gain popularity, and directly or indirectly inspire dozens of similar games, mostly by independent creators like myself.
