The Offline Web Security Problem Since the last release of a Date Ariane download, much attention has been paid toward the running of scripts offline and the potential security risks they pose.

What I have not announced here is that I am bringing one change I had planned for the Renpy version and brought it to the HTML: eliminating alcohol as a means to unlock content. That is not to say there will never be a Renpy version of Date Ariane, I’m saying the HTML upgrade is a better use of my time right now.I know this contradicts what I said here and here, but plans constantly change.As the game now uses HTML 5 elements, it may not run on Internet Explorer 8 (the highest version you can run on Windows XP) – I do not own a Mac, and the last version for Windows was Safari 5 which is 3 years old.Date Ariane runs fine on Safari 5, but testers are reporting issues in the latest Safari.
