One thing is that the images (well, almost all of them) have been blown op from to 800 x 500 pixels to 1000 x 600 pixels. Forward he cried Those who have played the online version of Ariane Dating Game recently, and I mean the first Ariane Barnes incarnation that made this walkthrough blog a relative hit, may have noticed that some features have changed.The clickable, but invisible, hotspot zones (also called image maps for those who still remember html courses) have been replaced by easy to spot links.The good thing is it has been made possible to play the game on tablets and phones like that, because with a fat finger you can't hover over an invisible link. Well, I would be daft to forbid the Creator to make the game tablet-friendly, but I can't unthink the impression that this is another case where new technology leads to a further nivellement par le bas instead of creating an intellectual boost of the masses. But in those 10 years, several things have changed, and it isn't finished yet.This seems to be a good thing as (cheap) monitors get bigger and bigger and download speeds get faster and faster (even on mobile devices), but that is not all...
I'm sorry, but this is the time of the year I get my annual Frankfurter Schule identity crisis.
Little by little the original (and rather cute) Ariane #1 graphics are being replaced by their modern equivalent, starring the new Ariane who can be seen in SITA.
Despite the record company's press release that it is still the same track, but cleaned up and enhanced in the way the musicians originally wanted it to sound, but were unable to do in the sixties, it actually is a frankenstein-like amalgam, like a field of corn that is slowly contaminated by its genetically modified equivalent.
Matilda Mother, from Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd, comes to mind that was released in a 2010 alternative mix, rumoured to be a patchwork of different takes and third millennium digital wizardry.
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.
