It would be a little odd for me to green screen myself as all the characters.
No, it wouldn't be odd. As a matter of fact, that could be the gimmick. A strange town where everyone looks very similar. A bit like League of Gentlemen.
Of course, having more people than just yourself would be helpful. Perhaps you could get your family and friends involved.

Overall, I think it should be quite possible for you to do it. Perhaps you could get something together to prove to yourself and others that you can finish what you've started, and then ask for some help on these forums.

But like AnasAbdin says, you should start off small. Put this idea on the shelf for now, and come back to it with a little more experience. Trust me, you will appreciate doing that.

I was just thinking about this this morning actually in regards to this issue:

I've read that the "Pirates Of The Carribean" script was rewritten from a draft of a "Monkey Island" script that never got made into a movie.

I mean, we all saw the obvious similarities, right?

So maybe Disney needs to hang onto the MI rights to avoid potential lawsuits from Ron Gilbert to claim IP rights on the MI script being recycled into a multi-million-dollar movie series?
I've been thinking about it too... and I'm still surprised Disney has never even so much as referenced Monkey Island in the latest Pirates of the Carribean movie. I mean they own the IP. They're both very similar! Throw in a reference or a cameo or anything!
I don't expect to ever see anything Monkey Island related again, but a bit of acknowledgement would be nice.

Seeing your cities in use like that, really shows off how good they look.
They're absolutely gorgeous.

All horror games have scared me. I'm very easily frightened.
But I've always found that non-horror games with one horror level, always provide the most horrifying experiences. The Thief series, and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines are good examples.

One of my favourite games is City of Fools. It is clever and very entertaining.   
If you're told to find objects that actually make sense in the context of the story, then I'll be more than willing to play it. :-D

But unless there are inventory object puzzles, it's not really comparable to an adventure game. As a matter of fact, I remember when people kept calling Hidden Object Games "Adventure Games". It was quite annoying, especially when you were searching for actual Adventure Games.

That's either Dark Sun: Shattered Lands or Dark Sun: Wake Of The Ravager.
I remember those games. They were sooooo good. And that definitely looks like one of them. I can tell from the menu icon in the top left corner.
I really should see about finishing them one day.

I've tried to play hidden object games, but I usually can't.
I'm told that I need to find clues for a crime, and I end up having to click on the moon, or a feather that's embedded in the wall, with no ryhme or reason for any of it. At the end of the day, I just start to wish that the people who had made the game had put their talents to something more entertaining, since they usually have brilliant art and story, but such meaningless gameplay.

Soccer Kid?
I remember playing that game as a kid. :-D
I also remember finding Marko's Magic Football, and thinking they were the same game, because of how similar they were.

What are your views on the placement of Hotspots?...
Personally, I think a room should have as many hotspots as it needs. It would be a bit annoying if there was a room absolutely full of all sorts of interesting things, but you could only interact with one thing. Likewise, it would be equally annoying if a room was full of absolutely loads of things, and you could interact with all of them, but you only need to interact with one.
The first is annoying, because you don't get to learn about things, or a character's thoughts about them. The second is annoying because it can make it hard to figure out what you're supposed to be clicking on.
All things in moderation I suppose.

So personally, I think that if it looks like it should be interactable, for example a statue or a painting, then make it into a hotspot. On the other hand, if it's just background fluff that no one is going to be interested in interacting with unless it could be picked up, for a example a roll of toilet paper or a tear in some wallpaper, then leave it hotspotless.

Looks like Deadlock to me.

Aside from the main Fortnightly Writing Competition...

When October rolls around, and the Halloween mood is in, maybe do a sort of "AGS-themed creepypasta writing contest."
This sounds like a brilliant idea. I would definitely participate. (nod)
