OK, so I have started a new project for AGS. This is a marketplace for AGS on Android. Packaging Games into the AGS APK is a hassle if not impossible. So I started this project this way it can be a place for those interested in AGS to download games automatically. Also, since many have had trouble in knowing where to extract the game files (including myself), I have made this utility as a way to download the game for you and put the files where they need to be. All you have to do is run AGS and choose the game you want to play.
Now, keep in mind, this is a super Alpha version of the market( Hence version 0.0.1) and was only done in 20 minutes. In the next couple of weeks I will be prettying it up and adding more games to the list. Right now it only has Space Quest -1. Test it out.
Here is a roadmap of what I plan to have done:
Features of Version 0.1.0 (Will be released in the next two weeks:
*Scroll through a list of games to choose from
*Ability to download the latest version of AGS for Android and install it.
*Featured Games page.
*Ability to download and install games automatically.
*Ability to run AGS from within the app.
*The Game page features a description, images, creators, team, etc.. and other features for each game.
*Has the ability to tell you if a game has already been downloaded from the market.
Roadmap (Not Guaranteed):
Version 0.1.1 will have:
*A hopefully nicer UI
*The ability to rate games and add comments.
*Sort by Genre feature - Hopefully.
*Ability to uninstall a game.
*Ability to search for a game.
*Even Nicer UI
*Ability to sell commercial games.
*Ability for users to upload their own games to the market.
*Have more games listed in the market.
For the time being, this app will not support commercial projects. Its too much of a hassle. However, if you have a commercial game and would like it on the Android Market for download, I will create a special package that will download AGS and the game for you and set it all up for you. I will also walk you through creating a developer account on the android market and teach you how to upload the game so that you can make cash. If you are interested in this, please PM me.
In the meantime, check out version 0.0.1 of the app and be kind in your criticism of it. We just had a baby a couple of months ago and all I could do is 20 minutes of work on it today. Enjoy. Here is the link again:http://dl.dropbox.com/u/63498272/AGSStream.apk
