Basic Story

You own and operate a photography studio. As such, you work with models to take professional photos. In this case, you are taking photos of a model named Shelby
who is setting up an Internet web site. The game consists of you progressing in your photo-taking of Shelby, and attempting to see all of the 25 pictures
included in the game.

Overall Thoughts

This is the first, and so far only, game in AIF that was specifically requested and designed for a real-life model. After Christopher Cole's "Encounter 4: Mrs. Parker" game had its pictures removed for copyright violation, Chris Cole was contacted by Shelby to offer her own pictures for him to use in creating a game. In return, Chris posted her website as part of the game for players to join if they wished to see more of the sexy star.

Puzzles/Game Play

There aren't any really tough puzzles in this game. Your goal is to figure out all of the situations and locations in which you can either photograph Shelby, or see her in stages of undress. You can also see her with your assistant Brittany. The other puzzles involve setting up your studio for the various photoshoots.

Sex

Most of the sexual situations in this game involve watching Shelby get undressed and perform various sexual acts such as touching herself and masturbating with some toys. You can also view her with your assistant Brittany, and they can get together sexually as well. It isn't until the very end of the game that you get a chance to interact with them.

Technical

I couldn't find anything technically wrong with this game. There is the possibility of viewing all of the pictures of the game without actually playing it, as Chris has included them as external objects. ADRIFT will allow you to make the pictures part of the TAF file, and perhaps this game could have been improved by doing that. But as a technical problem, that is really nit-picking.

Final Thoughts

As I said, this game was written mainly as a vehicle for Internet model Shelby. It represented a first in the AIF community, as being the first, and so far only, game which uses model-approved pictures. Even so, it is a nice game, much in the same theme as another game of Chris' - Encounter 3: Lynn's Sleepover. It focuses more on displaying pictures than on challenging puzzles. If you are a player looking for a challenge, you will be disappointed. If you are just looking for an interesting way of displaying a sexy Internet model (and her friend), then this is the game for you.
