Downloading!  I haven't played a RON game for ages...

Love the title!  ;D

Reminds me a little of an old Atari ST game called "Mousetrap".

I don't know... so many really good entries...

I guess I'd have to go for 7.  My runner up would be 4:=

Well done getting your game finished!  I was surprised to see the room count, I thought this was going to be much smaller (well, so did you I guess!  ;D)

I think my first AGS game was Yahtzee's Rob Blanc: Better Days of a Defender of the Universe.

How can I possibly choose only one?!?

Well... Kings Quest 2+ was very cool of course, and I also have very fond memoirs of The Uncertainty Machine.

Hello everybody, I'm here to bring news of a MEGA update in the first post.

I really should get this finished. It's so close!

Listen to this joker.

"Close" is such a relative term...

It'll be worth it when you finish, however long it takes!  (Though sometime before 2015 would be nice...  :P)

Nice, but I find having the HUD at the top of the screen rather than the bottom slightly weird.

We still need another skilled 2D animator to help with The Journey of Iesir.  PM Zyndicate if you're interested (or PM me if you like, but Daniel (Zyndicate) is our slave-driver  :o... er, Team Leader  ::) I mean).

Now we've got another coder on board, if we can get another animator the project will really start moving forward towards completion.  I know how many of you are looking forward to seeing the finished game, so if you know a good animator, threaten / blackmail / bribe them or whatever it takes!  :=

Now filled. :D

Thanks both for your suggestions, I'll try them out!  8)

General Discussion / Voice Recorder Software

Can anyone recommend a free sound recorder / editor?  I'm experimenting with a bit of voice acting but all I've got at the moment is the Sound Recorder package which comes with Windows, some editing tools & effects would be very useful.  I've done a quick search but not seen anything that looks good and easy to use so far, was wondering what other people used?

Might consider a commercial package as long as it's relatively inexpensive.

An interesting question - how many people actually play ags games (I mean especially the free ones)? Is it enough to actually have sense to make them, or is it more about creating something to you?

LOTS of people play AGS games... most new games that get at least a bit of exposure will get a few hundred downloads in the first week or two, and some games a get massive audience:

- A Tale of Two Kingdoms is nearly at 200K downloads (for example - not saying that all games reach that kind of figure by any means)
- I believe I remember Tierra (now AGDI) saying that their first King's Quest remake reached half a million downloads in the first 6 months (maybe less)

Ah, that guy's not really so bad...  ;D

Glad to see the game's nearing full release.

Ah, I forgot the Amiga 1200... should've realised!  ::)

- Being old enough to have owned a 16-bit computer does not make you old
- Being old enough to have owned an 8-bit computer does not make you old
- Having owned a ZX81 when you were a kid does not make you old!

Just for fun, you should include a mini-game based on 3D Monster Maze!  ;D

Looking good!   ;D

I was just wondering if the robot's name referenced anything in particular - obviously "ZX" is the CPU range of the dear old Speccy, but does the 1200 refer to anything in particular?

Really nice game, the little comments your character makes when you try to do things were very good in particular.

Not sure if anyone's noticed, I think I found a bug:

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
After you've picked up the piece of cloth from the window, you can still see it, at least from inside

Also there appear to be no interactions for the stool the enchanter's glasses are on.

Niggles aside though, a lovely little game.  :D

But I'm a tea drinker!!!!  ::)

Interesting theme, will have to get my thinking cap on.

Are you planning on green screening real people into the world? Because that would definitely make it feel like an early 90s adventure game.

Hmm... that wasn't the plan, but you never know (I'm leaving all sprite design and animation to someone else, it's something I definitely couldn't do a good job on myself!!)

What you've always secretly wanted is a hatchling baby alien duck creature with a quiff, with added slime, right?

I wasn't quite sure if the bit under the flag was supposed to be daylight or background stone, but I've tried my best with this.  There are far better artists on the board than me, but I like to dabble from time to time!!
