Patches and fixes should be a last resort, if they're going to break player saves. Preferably the game has been vigorously tested by people other than KS backers and friends.
I always feel sorry for people who buy a game on launch, because they are the true beta testers and they din't even know it.

I think I'm going to try and enter something. (nod)

Voted :-)

10 votes total?! Come on AGSers! That's a piss-poor showing of votes when there were only two games to even play!
Unfortunately, that's about average. Since I've been hosting it had even been as low as 7.
I thought having the poll at the top might encourage a few more people but the only notable thing that seems to draw the extra voters is when there is a big collaborative French entry...

Did the phone call trigger an explosion?

Great backgrounds. All the best with this :-)

Voting has finished and the winner is:

The Smallest Points by Mandle

Well done Mandle. Victory is yours! You will be contacted soon about choosing a topic for May.
Thanks to all the participants and voters.

Nice one. You are in charge of the next AGS Bake Sale, then :-)

I've been stretching my joke-writing muscles recently on a site called Howler.
The idea is that someone writes a set-up and everyone is invited to come up with a punchline.
I've actually been doing pretty well, climbing up the leaderboard.
The site doesn't let me copy and paste text easily, so if anyone wants to see some of my punchlines then click on my profile.
There are sone good ones there, as well as some rubbish.

One of my best ones was actually my very first entry.

"I finally got over my selfie addiction...
... but now I've got a bad case of polaroids"

Nice read. Thanks, guys.

I just finished reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman in time for the new TV adaptation coming soon. Anyone else read it? I liked it a lot and there were some great set pieces. But there were also some parts that really dragged. I also didn't buy that this guy just seemed to be going along with everything without completely freaking out.

Although, it is explained later that he is related to one of the gods and it's even suggested that he has some powers of his own, so maybe that explains his lack of a mental breakdown.

Unless the whole story is actually about one man's mental breakdown.

Anyway, I liked it enough that I'm going to read some more Gaiman when I get my hands on some.

Five more days to vote? We need more.
Where are all the lovely French voters?

Was the ghost of an animal?
Did he see the ghost in the food?
Was it a slice of toast?

Updated both links :-)

Two games are better than one.

The Smallest Points by Mandle

Thanks for the entries, folks.

Congrats on release, Spook. I look forward to giving it a whirl.

Topic: Mistaken Identity
This month's guidelines were set by Riaise.

I've been arrested for a crime I didn't commit. How was I supposed to know the painting I took wasn't the one I'd bought? The owner of the gallery was fine with...what do you mean that wasn't the owner?! And this coffee tastes awful. Wait, this is coffee, right?

Rules: Your game must include a case of mistaken identity, whether of a character, an object or a place. You don't have to use any of the scenarios above, they're just examples, but you can if you want to.

Ending:  April 30th


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.


• You may work in a team to produce an entry.
• You are not allowed to use any material created before the competition. Your game must be completely new! An exception is music and sound; you can use any audio that is freely available to the public.
• Any modules and templates featured in this board are also allowed.

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 fifteen 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.

two day extension suits me.
I'll still start April contest as normal but the deadline for March is 23:59 BST Sunday Night
