Hedgefield: Bingo! ! was definitely an inspiration here in terms of wild color themes and limited color palettes. And It was actually through Ben's games that I found AGS.
Slightly: Thanks! Can't say when it'll be out, but we're all working on it
I'll try to keep everyone posted on the progress of the game
Tabata: Don't worry, it's going to be a regular adventure game, not a platformer/arcade game. What I meant by "side-scroller" is just the fact that the character only walks left and right along a flat landscape (because I was too lazy to draw the walkables for "up" and "down" - but then I had to draw them anyway! Haha!). Otherwise, he'll do everything an adventure game character does: talk to people (and not only people!), pick up objects, look and comment on things around him, have an inventory, use stuff on other stuff, give stuff to people, etc
Just an ordinary game, you see. OK, maybe not THAT ordinary - or at least I hope so
