I will try to start fidgeting with the engine using whatever resources I can find and once I feel comfortable enough with the tool I will try to convert a story idea I had into an interactive thing - a visual novel as you said or even a basic point and click. I am a poor artist but I may be able to do something visually interesting (I am also training on Gimp on the side).
Depending on the story, you may want to try something like the Little Critter interactive stories or something like the game Monster Loves You. It all depends on how much interactivity you want.
And graphics can be anything from something that looks like a child did it to high definition semi-realistic. Just do the best you can and don't worry about quality at first. And if it's something just for practice, you can just use sprites from other games until you're comfortable making your own.
I wish you luck.

That is actually an excellent idea. I will use some existing sprites as material to test the engine and see what I can do with it, in the while I will keep on training to find a decent art style. I will also make sure to check the games you mentioned. I started looking into games that were made with AGS to see the extent of the capabilities and what people imagined before.
It was definitely a good idea to come here, your messages are very helpful, thanks again.

Hey guys! ;-D
I really love adventure games (and making them) and I am also familiar with the engine, so I thought: "Hey... I should create an account."
Now I'm here and want to participate in MAGS and/or present my future projects.

Hi all, newbie here, UK based, 19 :P Not got a background really in anything like this (other than my dad installing SCUMMVM when I was about 7 and showing me Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle which I immediately loved) but have started getting into python recently and came across this website and interested to have a crack at it. Definitely going to be slow going but love the idea of it so will try and stick at it

Welcome Mr_Tringham!

I assume you meant Python the programming language but if you've got into Monty Python that's cool too! :grin: :cool:

Correct in your assumption but now that you mention it, both would apply (and probably help with creating an adventure game haha)

Hi! Old timer here returning since posting a loong time back :)

It seems I can reply to threads but I can't post a new thread - gives me an error "you don't have the access to index.php on the forums" or something similar. Any ideas what's wrong? Is this a game puzzle? :)

SOLVED : It seems it was illegal characters in the text, maybe two dashes.

Hello!

My Name is William. I'm 17 now turning 18 years old next week, on August 10. I'm Filipino and Still an Senior High School Student.

Actually, I'm not actually born with different classic consoles like Atari and such, Neither NES but did grow-up with "cool" yet classic Snake game on Nokia Phones. I also discovered the Mighty Powerful Machine called "Computer" which I learned to use and Play several games (Actually, when I was a kid, we don't own a Computer nor PC. I discovered and Play Computer on my Older cousin's house). I used to play Typing Tutor program there and such and that also caught me interest in these, Computer games and such.

Eventually, Even though I'm almost 17, and some people like me would either such play games on modern PC and Consoles, like the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and such... I'm actually interested in Retro Games. Like I was born in 2000, why like me would such want to play old games from so old systems? Because it's Classic! Had a Pure yet Amusing Story and Fun! And I like that. Especially when I discovered Adventure Games.

I discovered this Nifty Yet Powerful Software called AGS since when I'm like so interested to make... *ahem* FMV (Full-Motion Video) Games. I've tried Googling on how do I make one and I discovered one YouTube video which is a tutorial on how to make an FMV game using AGS by the user named "Space Quest Historian".
And when I learned to make one, I was so amused to make one and already, I created one! Though it is much likely a Short Demo, which is the premise is the player must find the key to unlock the door.

And because of that, This make me decide on what dream I want... To be a Game Developer. And that is actually my dream that I never yet discovered since I'm like a Noob. And since I'm not familiar yet in other codes which is I never learned yet, I'll try my best to learn to code and make adventure games, especially with a help from all of you! And I look forward to meet new people too!

So, Yeah! Hello and Nice to Meet You all! ;)
