Looks great fun. Intriguing trailer.

The website has gone tits up as well. At least for the mobile version.

Thanks for the votes and comments so far. One week left.
Don’t forget to rate them on the database if they’re on there.

The third Doctor was a scarecrow.

Bumping this now as it got neglected last year.
It would be nice if some AGSers at the event would post here occasionally. Pics, updates, fun news. Anything to make the rest of us feel included. Thanks.

Live stream is here:

(The page above says that the livestream will be live on 11th and 12th. I’m guessing that’s a hangover from last year. It would say 10th and 11th.)


I was sure that Haunted by the occult is Blondbraid's! :-D
Me too. Blondbraid is our resident European history expert.

Well done Snarky and Durinde. An emphatic draw, if you can have such a thing. I voted for Snarky’s. This is such a cool idea for a game.

Oh this one’s cool. I like these ones that you have to do a little mind flip to see it differently.

Of course they didn't move. But to me it looked like they did.
That&s what I mean. They don't even look like they're moving to me. Not in the slightest. I just tried watching it on full screen on my laptop as opposed to on my phone, and still I can't see the effect... :-/

@TheFrighther. Am I missing something. I didn’t see the letters moving at all.

@Blondbraid, I think that is a  more than acceptable interpretation of the theme.

For me, the choice was easy.
I need this game.

@Dan. What’s the title of the Joke book you mentioned?
I had one from the 70s that I found in my attic when I was 12. It must’ve belonged to my father. Only good thing I ever inherited from him.

The thing that bugs me about it is how he has to spell out the subtext.  Subtext shouldn't need to be made a part of the telling of the story.
Yeah it’s really basic “we shouldn’t judge people by the colour of their skin” stuff that while I admit some people seem like they need reminding. But if you’re old enough to have a Facebook account and still have to be reminded about that then you are beyond help.

Looks great. Congrats on the release.

Sorry Blondbraid. Not sure how I let that happen. If it’s any consolation I love a bit of chopped liver.

I've reset the voting now.
Please vote using the poll above.

Captain Downes and the Pirate Princess by Blondbraid
Captain Carver's Carnival Curios by VampireWombat
Dr. Chuckles' miniature world of madness by Slasher and Mikeg

Happy voting.

Topic: Scarecrows
Suggested by: Slasher and Kastchey
Deadline: November 30th

The challenge for this month is to make a game featuring a scarecrow in any form or role.
Regardless of the above picture, your scarecrow can, but does not have to be spooky! Feel free to pick the setting that best suits your game idea.

Using pre-made assets is fine.
Don't know where to find free assets? Try AGS Trove!

What is MAGS?

Started in 2001, MAGS is a competition for amateur adventure game makers. The idea is to create a game in under a month, following the rules set by the previous winner. It aims to help you work to a deadline, improve your skills, and provide a kick-start into making adventure games. Regardless of skill, MAGS is for everyone. Voting is based on "favorite" games, and not the most artistic, or the best coded. If you have bad art skills, use it as a chance to do some graphic work. If you're sub-standard at coding, use it as a chance to give scripting a go. Ultimately, people will vote for the most enjoyable entry.


Entering MAGS is simple. First, conceptualise your game following the month's criteria (see top). Second, create your game fueled only by coffee. Finally, post your game in this thread, including:

* A working download link
* The title of your game
* A suitable in-game screenshot

At the end of the month, voting will begin, usually lasting for fourteen days. The winner chooses the next month's theme, and their name and game is immortalised in the MAGS Archive. For more information, please visit the Official MAGS website.

A little more than half a day to go.

Also if Slasher or Kastchey read this. I need your November theme by tomorrow too.
