Following the problems with yahoo I have relaunched my website as www.VDateGames.com
or "virtual date games". I felt it was easy for people to type and remember, plus it was available and the domain "VDG-offsite" would still make sense.
There's a few techinal upgrades to the site (i.e. the blog is there now rather than hosted separately, I've added a favicon, plus a few other things), but you won't find the new content just yet.
Plan A is to get the Lucy date working by the end of the week, but to be honest I'm not too confident it'll be ready. The game works on an engine similar to arianeb and I'm simply not used to it. On top of that, I've tried to add extra game mechanics such as a clock to tell you what time it is, and that just makes it even more confusing.
Plan B is to go back to Crystal. Back in June I started work on a "Crystal Part 2", with the theme of a date mainly set in one place, namely your home. My other dates have mostly sprawled over various locations, and I thought this would be a good experiment. It won't be entirely set at home, you'll be able to have quick trips out to places. Think something similar to ariane but without the parts downtown.
Since the locations are limited, I could finish the game pretty quickly (making the images is the most time consuming part), and so, if I decide Lucy will take too long by the end of tomorrow, I'll just go back to that and hopefully have it finished by mid next week.
